ALEKS Review by J. Askin
"I have read these reviews and can relate to all the bad reviews. It is a beat down. I have a full course load and I spend majority of time on Aleks. All the complaints on here are legitimate. I just had a couple marked wrong that had exact answer th.."
"I love this program. I am using with my child who has Childhood Apraxia of Speech. We started with A in kindergarten and will continue to use this program. It's a gentle but solid approach to learning math. My child has been able to math problems tha.."
"Enrolled our 8th grader. The program is very structured, which we appreciate as our son is preparing for college. We had read some scary reviews before moving from 7th grad k12 into 8th keystone, but after thoroughly reviewing the orientation mater.."
Abeka Academy Review by Janine Benslay
"We have used Abeka for all 8 of our children. Our last two are in 12th grade. Let me clear something up here. People say that their students cannot ask questions. Yes they can. There are academic people at Abeka that students can call and ask questio.."
ALEKS Review by Jhon
"Absolutely horrible. My child has had the worst of experiences with this website and I would definitely NOT recommend. Not only does it mark questions horribly, but also causes multiple reasons for having NO TIME for my kid to finish their homework!!.."
Calvert Review by Morgan Luka
"My 3 elementary aged kids have used Calvert since K. We started using Calvert Academy this year. I was worried at first because it was a big change from Calvert Homeschool. But, we absolutely love it!! It is so much better for all of us. The informat.."
"Spelling City was my first option for my older kids, but I always struggled to see their progress in building vocabulary. I appreciated the opportunity to add my lists, but I needed something that will not consume my time at all. I realized a huge.."
Time4Learning Review by Andrea K Elzey
"We love it... So easy to navigate and very entertaining to a 2 ND grader... The parent portal, customer service and Facebook page is helpful... I love how all parents work together and share ideas.."
"It's not bad online program but i get sick and tired of the million projects and reports you have to do, and it will send you like 5 reports you have to do, they are all due the same day and they give you like a week in advance to get it done, 7 days.."
"Do not, I repeat, do not send your children to LUOA. There are many horror stories about kids (my own included) coming out of this program. The curriculum is horrendous and does not provide much education at all. Every day of every week should have a.."
Calvert Review by Sherry
"We loved Calvert, until they changed their program. Both of my boys were confused at first when learning the new program, but eventually got it down. It’s nothing like the old program and neither is the schooling itself, it’s completely different.."
"This is our first year of homeschooling and we decided to use Oak Meadow as our main curriculum. I think it is great and we are very satisfied with it so far! It is very organized and easy to use and understand. It tells you what materials you might .."
K¹² Review by Robert Rivera
"It's been 2 months and I've been trying to get withdrawal slips & I've gotten hunged up on just because I expressed how frustrating the situation is! One specific African American lady says "I can't hear you" Then hangs up & continues to do t.."
Abeka Review by Stephen Davies
"This is the most honest review you’ll ever read in your life , We are not Christians but still chose this program in fact we started using it back in the early 2000’s and it helped us put three children into universities and two of them now have.."
"My son has autism and has been slower to learn writing and reading. We have waited until this year, his fourth grade year, to do cursive. HWT is amazing. My son always hated to write anything down. He prints very slowly and has struggled with printed.."
Alpha Omega Academy Review by a Senior, Spencer Crow
"I really loved AOA! I graduated this year and the format worked great for me. I was involved in several outside activities. It allowed me to work my studies around my schedule. The Bible based curriculum is set up so you can do lessons at your own p.."
"I used this method with all five of my now grown sons and for my older grandaughter and am coaching a daughter-in-law to use it. The book fell apart after the second child and was hard for little hands to hold, so I made cards of the phonemes and us.."
"We have just finished our first year of homeschool with 7th grade T4L program. Overall I think it helped us to make the leap to homeschooling so it was very valuable. It provided organized content and lesson planners for easy scheduling. According to.."
Calvert Review by Maire B Durkan
"This is followup to a review I posed in June after we withdrew from the sub-par OdysseyWare /Gynlyon monstrosity that Calvert morphed into. We withdrew our daughter, who is in 8th grade, from the horrible curriculum, lost 500.00, and moved on .."
ALEKS Review by Rachael P
"I am in tears as I write this. I'm 30 going back to school. Math is already difficult I have a math learning disability and this program has caused me several break downs in the last month of using it. Its new to our math department, so trying to say.."
