I am a first year homeschooling mom to a 9th grade and 6th graders. My 9th grade son and I started the year in a popular Algebra 1 book but seemed to really struggle after about a month or so. I then took a small break from the subject to look for alternative Algebra 1 curriculum. I researched numerous DVD, online and book based programs. It wasn't until I found yourteacher.com that I got really excited. My son and I walked through the first couple lessons together and I found that the program was exactly what I was looking for. I think this is the greatest thing aside from homemade bread. I love the fact that you can have a virtual teacher going over each type of problem but the practice problems with solutions, notes to print out and short but effective tests. This program has it ALL! I have raved to many of my homeschool friends about this program and I plan on using it for many years to come. My 9th grader still struggles in Algebra I but he now has a systematic, well put together program that he can work with independently and at his own pace. I LOVE IT!!”

I struggled with Algebra I on my homeschool curriculum Math program and so did my brother. MathHelp made Geometry and Algebra II so much easier for both of us. The videos are very detailed and informative. The practice problems help you to prepare and practice before the test, to make sure you know and understand what you are learning before moving to the next lesson. MathHelp actually made me excited about Math.
Thank you for creating this program to help kids with Math and for making it affordable too.”

Let's begin with how much my daughter hates math. She would rather eat dirt than do math. If it involves numbers, she hates it. May I add,she is a fantastic student. She just struggles with numbers... always has. Throughout the years we have used the traditional curriculum of textbooks. Usually, BJU or Prentice Hall, McGraw-Hill, all of which are fantastic in their own right. However, I knew I needed a different avenue of learning for math.
I did my research before I bought Mathhelp.com. I pondered on it and did my share of praying over it before I invested in it. Hands down, best curriculum I have ever bought. I've been homeschooling for 17 years now. I WISH I had mathhelp.com for my older two. I really embrace using it with my last child.
It is concise, cuts through all the fluff. Fluff? I consider fluff to be material taught that is totally unnecessary. Material that you will never use in life. I know, half of the math you will never see again in a lifetime, but you have to learn it for testing and advancing to the next grade.
The instructor is really great at explaining things. You have to get passed his dryness, but he is a phenomenal teacher. I think his name is Mark, but we refer to him as "Clark" as in "Clark Kent". We like to think that there is some kind of crazy- wild side to this very stoic, conservative personality teaching us. (Helps us get beyond his seriousness).
This program is well worth the money. My daughter still hates math, but I never dreamed she would be busting through the lessons like she does. She understands the concepts, she learns the steps involved in solving the work, she gets the workload done. Remember, with anything, repitition is what makes you strong in anything. Whether it be math problems, essay writing, learning to drive a car, doing a sport, public speaking, etc....
Hope this helps...God bless”

We love using MathHelp Algebra II. The curriculum is clear and the program offers online scoring. Our teenage son finds it easy to follow the lessons and this seems to be the best online math we have tried. We will continue to use MathHelp.”
Jerry Jr., Co-op Member
This program has changed our homeschool day. It is quick, clear and easy to understand. My son loves it and I actually look forward to our math time each day. Thank you”
Amy A., Co-op Member
Before we found MathHelp, we were at a loss of what to do. I had hired a tutor for my daughter and that did not work out. My daughter understands this program better than the live tutor, and I don't have to spend as much money. Now my daughter is catching up on her math and says it is so easy to understand! We will continue to use it and tell others about it.”
Robin P, Co-op Member
We have gone through 4 algebra curriculums this year for our daughter. On a desperate move, I bought math help, and it was the best decision I've ever made. Our daughter actually said, I like math again. The site is so well laid out, it's easy to use and know where you stand as far as skills learned. I love it.”
Heather D, Co-op Member
My son struggles with math. We have tried nearly every affordable program. While MathHelp did not cure his struggle, the short, clear lessons provide him the instruction he needs. He likes taking the pre-tests, as he can see how much he already does know, boosting his confidence a bit. The worksheets go exactly with the lessons, providing more practice.”
Sheri E, Co-op Member
This program has relieved a great deal of stress and worry. This is our second year to use it and we plan to use it next year as well. I've recommended his it my friends and family. The instruction videos are thorough. I love that I don't have to grade!”
D Cross, Co-op Member
My daughter had struggled with math over the years. We started homeschooling and used the MathHelp curriculum last year. She enjoyed the program and felt like it was helping. Her ACT math score increased by two points after just a few months on the program.”
Amy I., Co-op Member
I was so excited to discover MathHelp. After trying multiple math websites, this is the best for our family. I've forwarded MathHelp info to other families in my area in hopes that it will help them too. Thank you!”
P. Dozier, Co-op Member
We love MathHelp! We have used it for Pre Alg, Alg 1, Geometry, and Alg 2. The lessons are relatively short and engaging, easy to understand. The student is not bogged down with a ton of problems and I love how easy it is to set up and use. Very user friendly! It keeps track of everything for me. Overall great value, especially when buying through the co-op. It is a HUGE value when you have more than one student. Students can go at their own pace.”
Cheryl, Co-op Member
I love this curriculum! I have researched and tried so many math curriculums looking for the right balance of worksheets, video teaching, and practice. This is it! Both of my kids (grade 7th and 11th) love it. This curriculum will even follow a textbook if you are using one. My son wanted to do his Algebra 2 curriculum out of a textbook this year, until I showed him this. My search for the right math curriculum ends here and I plan to keep using it until my 7th grader graduates. It is worth checking out and the price for everything they offer is amazingly affordable through the co-op. Thank you so much!!”
Jodi N., Co-op Member
Since implementing this resource, my daughter has a developed a love for mathematics. Once the free trial is over, I will use this for the entire school year. Thank you for including MathHelp.”
Very Satisfied Parent, Co-op Member
Mathhelp.com/ got it free for the summer. We are doing prealgebra. I wish this existed when I was a teenager. My son breezed through first pretests but then it got a little bit more challenging and now sometimes we have”
Miriam, Co-op Member
I am loving this website. It's easy it's straight forward it's not cutesy. He does the pretests for prealgebra but now that it's getting harder we will be doing the problems first. It's not overloaded with the same problems. Chapter one is looong but I can see this being a good way to get your daily math in. Videos notes and even worksheets are there and it keeps track of your progress. I've recommended to lots of people!”
Miriam, Co-op Member
I started homeschooling my son last year for 6th grade. I live in an area without any support groups or same age homeschooling families and have been stumbling through the first year pretty blind. We have yet to find a curriculum that works for us. Too many of the other math sites are 'cutesy' involving games and cartoon characters. My son is mature for his age and he finds these childish themes 'babyish'.
I discovered MathHelp last month (June) and decided to use the 6th grade tests to gauge how well I had covered what my son needed to know and how well he had retained it. There were a few areas that we had not covered, and in all honesty, I couldn't remember how to do them myself. The accompanying video lessons are clear and concise. My son is ADD yet the lessons were short enough to allow him to stay focused. He has been able to work through the lessons independently. I can highly recommend MathHelp for middle school and high school students. It offers straight forward math without all of the 'designed for kids' fluff that some find unnecessary and often insulting to their intelligence.
I will be continuing to use MathHelp.com. We have found our Math source!”
Kim B., Co-op Member
I wish I had found this program 5 years ago. It breaks down math into small, understandable pieces. It also has SAT,ACT, and many other practice tests. It links to major textbooks. I have recommended MathHelp to all my homeschooling friends. It is well worth the money!!”
Charlotte E., Co-op Member
We have used Mathhelp for the past 2 years as our math curriculum with our middle school boys. While the program design is not super intuitive or without its flaws (very poor reporting features) it has been a good video based program to teach my boys pre- algebra through algebra 2. I have been happy with the quality of instruction and the achievements my boys have made in their math skills.”
A. Rose, Co-op Member
MathHelp.com is a blessing to our family!! Our son was having great difficulty with Algebra 2 with another program and is now progressing wonderfully. He is learning, showing his work, and hopeful again with math. The technical support team is responsive and helpful. I highly recommend MathHelp!!”
Kristi B., Co-op Member
We love this program. The problems are reviewed step by step by the math teacher in absorbable concepts. Plenty of opportunity for practice. I highly recommend this program to anyone. Algebra is challenging for us, but why struggle when there is a teaching tool like this one available?”
Roberta Apple, Co-op Member
We purchased this for our son for ASVAB tutoring; from what he says, it is making a difference!
He has other resources that we have supplied him with; however, the mathhelp is what he is using on a daily basis!
The great thing about mathhelp is that because he has a year subscription, he can use it for other math subjects and prepping for other exams.
This is definitely a resource we would continue using; especially with the co-op discount; which hopefully will continue being available!!”
Sandy A., Co-op Member
My son had completed Teaching Textbooks high school courses up through Algebra 2 and was working on Precalculus, but it wasn't working for him. We switched to mathhelp.com College Algebra and it has been a perfect solution. It covers some of the same things as Algebra 2, but in a different and often more in depth way. It also covers some of the things taught in Precalculus. The video lessons are short and to the point and the problems get increasingly harder in the problem set which is nice. I have no doubt it is preparing him well to take the community college's accuplacer test and hopefully he will test out of College Algebra. I have told several people about mathhelp.com as a great alternative to going on to Precalculus.”
Lynn H., Co-op Member
I wish we had found MathHelp years ago. My kids love this more than any other program that we have ever used. I love that you can work at your own pace, and that there are SO MANY subjects available. Thanks so much, MathHelp!”
Kassiah, Co-op Member
My daughter is enjoying math help. In brief to the point lessons, mathhelp breaks the concepts into small easy to understand lessons. Then with quizzes it encourages you to test yourself and see if you understand the material. She is able to take one lesson in 15 minutes top and is able to go on with the rest of her classes. My daughter has language processing disorder and most of the material is read to her. The rest is able to work with her natural reader program. Great for those who are not reading to level.”
Tina Millis, Co-op Member
My 7th grade daughter likes the videos, which make it simple to understand various math comments. In fact, there is an explanation for the solutions to most math problems, which makes it super easy to understand the process of solving equations. You can also search by math topic. My daughter feels more confident in math because of MathHelp because she can do the math exercises on her own and doesn't need constant help from me.”
Vivian M., Co-op Member
Love this. I've used it both as a virtual tutor to find specific explanations and practice problems for a student struggling in a course, and as a stand alone Algebra 2. The Algebra 2 student likes being able to skip back to Algebra 1 or any other course when he needs a quick review of a more basic concept.
The pratice problem feature, which lets a student first get a hint, then check the answer, then get a brief explanation, is excellent.
The instructors in these videos speak more calmly and clearly than the highly caffeinated Prof. Berger at Thinkwell; we love him too, but those courses don't offer the option of searching back or reviewing earlier lessons.”
Jayne, Co-op Member
This curriculum is truly a blessing to our homeschool of seven kids. They are being challenged, getting over math fears and learning all at once. I am so grateful!”
Grateful Mom, Co-op Member
We are very appreciative of the HomeSchool Buyers Co-Op making available such excellent resources such as MathHelp.com at an incredible price. Currently, we have three children enrolled in K12.com. Even with their program we find that we do need supplemental material. Mathhelp.com is an excellent choice. Often our children need additional information or the ability to review their math curriculum. Mathhelp.com has been invaluable go to for our children as well as for Mom and Dad when we need help explaining a topic. We highly recommend joining the HomeSchool Buyers Co-Op and taking advantage of their resources and purchasing power!”
Sgt.BriggsUSMC, Co-op Member
We love MathHelp!! My 14 yr. old. Is finally learning the concepts he needs to. He absolutely loves working on this program! The tutorials are very helpful in learning each step. Thank you MathHelp!!”
Debbie D., Co-op Member
My daughter really struggled with math last year at her school so when I decided to homeschool my goal was to find a math curriculum that was straightforward and didn't leave her in tears. We found that in MathHelp. She can work independently due to the video lessons and can understand the concepts taught. There are extra problems I can go over with her that we both enjoy doing. For such a low price, it is worth every penny and more!”
A. Baca, Co-op Member
My son learned a lot with this program.”
R. Clark, Co-op Member
I have used Mathhelp.com for two years for both my homeschool and private school kids. It is a great resource for both introducing a new concept and reinforcing what has already been taught. Short, easy to understand lessons provide both visual and verbal explanation. When my Highschool son needs a little extra help - he asks to go to MathHelp.com. The program is invaluable. Thank you!”
Cindy V., Co-op Member
I got this initially for my kids, but I had to turn to it for myself! I was struggling with college algebra, so I decided to try MathHelp for clarification. Everything is explained so clearly, that things just "click". I finally understand concepts that I've struggled with since high school. I feel extremely lucky to have this resource, and can only say good things. I definitely recommend this for everyone, your kids won't have to spend hours and hours on one concept, it will take 30 minutes tops to watch the video AND do the practice problems. It's what I'm going to use with my children for sure! There are even extra practice questions if you don't feel you've had enough practice. Seriously, you will not regret subscribing to this wonderful resource!”
Diana G., Co-op Member
Videos are wonderful. I also like that so long as you haven't mastered it, it will continue to give you more problems.”
Jeannette V, Co-op Member
My younger daughter has consistently had difficulty understanding math concepts. I decided to try the online MathHelp system, as it was offered for free over the summer. It has been such a great help for her. The video lessons are clear and concise. The worksheets that give extra practice on the concepts covered are also excellent. So far, she has excelled with her math this year. I plan on buying the program when the free trial runs out. If any of my home educating friends is looking for a solid program to teach math, I will definitely recommend this one.”
Lisa Borman Bednar, Co-op Member
Like this program. My daughter uses it to get ready for fall classes. I like the suggested help lessons - it lets me know where she may need extra practice.”
DBJ, Co-op Member
MathHelp has been a great tool for my children. As they learn a new concept or want more understanding in any area, they were able to get on MathHelp and within minutes they got understanding, clarity and confidence! MathHelp has helped my children feel more confident about math and encouraged them to learn!”
Casie B., Co-op Member
My high school daughter used the MathHelp to review for an upcoming math college placement test. She needed a 420 and received a 645. She plans on taking free college courses while still in high school for college credit.
She also plans on using MathHelp to review for her SAT this fall. Thank you Mathhelp.”
G. Riesenberg, Co-op Member
So far so geat with Geometry and my 10th grader. Thank you, Math Help!”
Tracie H, Co-op Member
Well, what a time I was having with teaching Algebra I. I thought I was okay, but we were falling behind as the days went by. I needed help with explaining how the steps were supposed to be done and MathHelp fit the bill. The teachers are well versed in their explanations and I am thrilled that we are on our way to recovery due to MathHelp.com. Grades are looking GREAT! We will be using it through the next year as we venture into the world of GEOMETRY!!”
Sharon T., Co-op Member
I have used MathHelp for several children at several math levels. I prefer it over (video text, teaching textbooks, think well, or plato) other video programs. While all of these other programs are helpful. I liked the clear video instruction of MathHelp. The tests are short and self graded. The child can redo a lesson and get up to 20 tries on the test. There is also guided practice as well as printable worksheets. If you aren't sure of your child's level that is ok. They may wiz through 6th grade math and are allowed to go onto pre algebra. All of the curriculum is available with the subscription. Also if they don't complete before the end of the subscription you can extend it with them or through the co-op. My children find this math less tedious/frustrating. If your child is ready to move ahead quickly this works too. They are allowed to work on more than one math curriculum at a time. This also contains SAT, ACT Math review. It is super easy to navigate and we are able to use it with satellite internet.”
Robin Spencer, Co-op Member
After almost 8 months 4 different Algebra 1 programs and many tears, we finally came across Mathhelp.com. We knew the first day of using it that we had found the right program. The teachers are fantastic and explain the concepts in a way that really helped my son, who has difficulty with auditory memory and processing. The combination of seeing the teacher write it and hearing it plus the practice testing gave him confidence and success!
I am thrilled that we found it and would recommend it to anyone whose student is struggling. The only feedback for improvement I would make is that I would like to see a way to review past lessons in the practice problems.”
Jennifer T, Co-op Member
We have been using MathHelp Algebra I for our 8th grade son for about a month. He is able to use it independently, which is extremely helpful for our large and busy family. I really like the format, video lectures, examples, self-tests, etc. He works problems in a notebook, then enters answers into the program, with immediate feedback and explanation. He finds it challenging but not overwhelming. He has needed to do some of the suggested review lessons to fill in gaps in his knowledge. We used Singapore Math for his younger grades, and although I love Singapore, I found the upper math required way too much parent involvement. We then switched to Life of Fred, which he loved, and could do independently, but left gaps in his knowledge. (IMO- LoF is a great supplement.) Our only problem with Mathhelp is, without direct supervision, our son toggles between it, Minecraft, and Social Media, thus wasting a lot of time and not fully concentrating on math. We have worked around this by having him do math (wearing headphones) next to Dad, in Dad's office. If this wasn't an option, the online format may not have worked for him. We plan to continue using Mathhelp!”
JAK, Co-op Member
My son has struggled with math for years. We have used some pretty good math programs, but so far, Math Help has been the best for him. For students who struggle with staying focused and understanding math concepts, Math Help is a winner. It is simple, to the point, and effective. Many thanks!”
Stephanie L., Co-op Member
Both of my middle school girls were using a different online math program and they were both struggling. We switched to MathHelp 3 weeks ago and the change has been truly amazing! Now they are learning and understanding their math and are able to do it independently!! Thank you so much for this program. It has been a life saver. I have already recommended it to a friend and she has her 3 high school age children using it and now loving math as well. We are all huge fans!”
Andrea H, Co-op Member
This program is awesome! My child can go through as quickly, or slowly, as he needs. The teachers on the video are great and really take their time explaining the concepts. We used it for the first time last year, and when looking at curriculum for this year, my son wanted to make sure he had this program again. As a parent, I love how easy it is to check on your child's progress and to place your child where he/she needs to be.”
Stacey C., Co-op Member
I am so grateful to have MathHelp for our homeschool. This is our third year that we are using MathHelp for our high school daughters and wouldn't want to be without it.
Before MathHelp, I spent hours teaching my high school children algebra and geometry, going over problems many times, and sometimes they still didn't get it. But now the "Math Teacher" teaches the lesson and also teaches the corrections if they need more help on missed problems. MathHelp has helped our daughters go from mediocre math students to excelling!”
Kathy T., Co-op Member
This is my first year homeschooling my 8th grader. I pulled him out of school mainly because he was struggling with math. Having the videos teach the lesson is great and way cheaper than a tutor!! I am not great at math so I am learning right along with my child. There is also a program for ACT prep as well. We are using that for our older child who is in high school.”
Cathy L., Co-op Member
My daughter loves this program. She actually enjoys math now and is rocking an A in 8th grade alegebra.”
Annette, Co-op Member
This is the best math program in existence, bar none! My math-hating daughter is doing word problems. The videos are short (usually under two minutes) and the math is explained so well and so easily that one wonders how it is that other math teachers DON'T explain it well. If you're reading these comments because you're wondering if you should invest the money for this program, the answer is YES! You will be happy you did...and so will your student!”
Kathy L., Co-op Member
My daughter and I became thrilled with this program when she started using it over the summer. She likes the no-nonsense teaching and the detailed explanations she can access when she has difficulty solving a problem. I like the immediate feedback we receive after she completes a self-test: she moves on if she passes, but if there's a weakness MathHelp prompts her to review the skill by suggesting a particular lesson for her to watch. I also like having the option to print out a worksheet if she needs more practice. After the free trial ended, we bought a year's worth of access and will continue to do so until she graduates from high school. Thank you, MathHelp!!!”
Kimberly :), Co-op Member
My 11th grader really likes the format of this course. The screen is streamlined and holds only the information he needs for one problem. Math has never been his favorite subject. I think that part of that stemmed from the lack of focused practice on one type of problem at a time, but MathHelp offers lots and lots of problems on each topic and lets him focus on those until he really get it.
The lesson videos are very clear, and again my son appreciates that they are done in a serious manner.
We haven't started on the SAT Math Prep yet, but I'm thankful it's there and doesn't cost extra.”
Annette, Co-op Member
Although I know a lot of people who use them, I've not been a fan of video math courses. I've tried several, but found them always lacking in one area or another. MathHelp is different. The teaching is short, to the point, and very clear. There is no wasted time, and there are no confusing or meaningless explanations. The program is very complete. I have one child using MathHelp as a stand-alone program and another using it as a supplement. In both cases, it is outstanding. It receives my highest recommendations.”
JAL, Co-op Member
I had not really heard about Math Help until I saw the free summer trail offered by Homeschool Buyers Co-op. When I also saw that there was an opportunity for a group buy, I decided to research further. The program sounded good, with good reviews. After trying Math Help for 3 weeks, we knew that this is the best program for our homeschool. We've purchased the year subscription and look forward to my students continuing to tell me how they enjoy math now!”
Teresa in NC, Co-op Member
We LOVE MathHelp and look forward to using it this year and the years to come. The practical but clear and concise explanations are a plus for this program. Also, the fact that you have extra problems with solutions. Thank you for such a valuable resource and curriculum.”
Wendy, Co-op Member
First of all thanks a bunch to Homeschool Buyers Co-op team for working out this phenomenal deal with MathHelp. I have done extensive research of MathHelp and other similar online education websites. MathHelp is by far one of the best sites. Online tutors are very good in explaining concept.
My daughter was preparing for PSAT and initially she was reluctant to use Mahhelp. After watching few lessons and concepts, she is fully satisfied with it.
I have personally put the word out about Homeschool Buyers and MathHelp to all our family friends.
Again, thanks for your all good work and keep it up. ”
Jay Trivedi, Co-op Member
MathHelp has been a great aid to our family, especially for the high school levels. My older kids are able to work independently and at their own pace using the pre-test feature of each lesson. The shorter lessons allow them to move quickly with skills they have mastered and focus without frustration when they are learning new skills. We highly recommend MathHelp!”
Colleen Mitchell, Co-op Member
We love MathHelp.com! We have used the Geometry, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1 and 2 for 3 kids. The teachers are excellent! They break the concept down thoroughly and teach it in a way that it is easily grasped. With all 3 of my kids that have used this math having ADD/ADHD, I believe having the visual of the teacher working out the problem was huge in their ability to really grasp it. And the student can always go back and watch a lesson again as much as needed for review. I love where they do a few problems online to check themselves with the teacher to know that they have a good grasp of it before they do the printable worksheet. It has freed me up immensely as a hoomeschool mom of 4. :) They easily work independently and I feel confident that they are really getting what they need. I usually have them check their own worksheets so they readily see how they are doing. If they miss something, they have to rework the problem (without erasing the original one) to try to find their mistake. The only work I do is print out the worksheets and tests, help if needed (I think that's only happened once!) and grade the tests. My kids have been very happy with it as well. We tried a couple other Algebra 1 and Geometry curriculums before we found MathHelp.com (which use to be YourTeacher.com). This is now our answer for high school math! The only thing I would have them change/add, particularly for the geometry, is to add some review of previous lessons at the end of the printable worksheets. We had used curriculum for prior maths that had built in review and it was wonderful as it kept previous concepts fresh. We have worked out our own review system though. I have told many other homeschool moms about MathHelp.com and plan on using it for my youngest when he's ready for it. The free trial for the summer that they've added is just super! What an excellent way to decide if it's right for you before you purchase.”
Penny H., Co-op Member
MathHelp has been a wonderful addition to our homeschool. We have been taking full advantage of the free trial using it almost daily. I have told multiple friends about it, not just the free trial, but how great the program is. First, it is very sequential with clear explanations by voice or video, and text. Having the voice was critical for my auditory learner, and it's not a computer voice but a real person speaking/explaining. The grading screen shows attempts and scores of the test for each section, which can be taken something like 100 times, and an average score for all tests taken. Additionally, links are given for taking lessons on fundamentals to assist with the current lesson. This is seriously independent learning software!! And exactly what we needed right now.
Another huge plus for MathHelp is that it has every level of math available, PLUS test prep for a huge list of tests, including assessment tests for community colleges and universities.
The ONLY feedback I have have for MathHelp is that it is a mastery approach curriculum and I wish there were some review modules built in. We need regular review throughout the year, so I will have to go through and pick and choose some sections to take again.
Overall, I and my child are very pleased with this program and we plan to subscribe for the school year. Having the free trial has been critical in making this decision, so I am thankful that MathHelp was willing to offer it. We have been using Pre-Algebra with links to earlier levels for some topics.”
Sharon S, Co-op Member
Heaven Sent!!! I am very happy that we gave math help a tried. Lessons are easy to understand, if the lessons is not understood, you can go back and re do it. When taking a test, if one get one of the problems wrong, you can click at the problem and it gets explained to you. It reminds some to Saxon Math. We will use the program again, if in need of it. Very Satisfied customer!”
K. Duprat, Co-op Member
It's a really good resource. It starts with a video lesson, which I love because my son could be a little independent and just watch it. There's plenty of examples that help him to master a certain topic. Then to drill it home, a quiz follows it. Until you do really well with a certain topic, it'll keep drilling you. As a parent and teacher to my child I sometimes get stuck trying to teach a concept, and having this to fall back on has been a huge help to me. I love it! My son has been able to understand a lot of difficult concepts because of it! Thanks!”
J. Velasquez, Co-op Member
Love the program it did wonders for my children”
shay, Co-op Member
My granddaughter has used this site both as a primary math instructional source during elementary years and as a resource during high school. She responded well to the program and is an exceptional good math student scoring well beyond her years. I highly recommend this for any home schooled student.”
L. Burns, Co-op Member
Absolutely a life saver ! They have a list of math books and videos that you can match up by entering the page numbers from the book. Videos were precise. Tried Kahn academy but was too over my daughters head and complicated. Well worth the money. On site it was $199. Luckily I checked Homeschool buyers coop and found that I could purchase for $119 !
Thanks for the savings !! Samples of lessons can be found on YouTube but the subscription gives you the full videos and access to match your book up to the videos. Awesome product !!!”
Lisa Meloro, Co-op Member
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has been a great addition to our homeschool learning. My daughter finds it easy to use and has learned a lot from the quality video instruction and opportunities for practice problems and testing. She has been able to manage her own math learning. We will not continue to use it as we advance in math as my daughter finds that she would appreciate more practice opportunities with the various concepts. We have shared our positive experience with others and encouraged them to use it as a good option for on-line math learning. The parent resources could be stronger. Other on-line programs have provided easy to access and thorough summaries for me to see quickly what my student is learning and her progress. I do not find the MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to be as user friendly with regard to this component. I would use this program again with other children.”
Jennifer Stallbaumer Rouyer, Co-op Member
I love this program and wish that I had found it sooner! My daughter had struggled in school with math for many years. Not only were the concepts difficult for her to grasp, her processing is slow, so teachers would move on before she had a chance to understand fully. Once she began this program she understands much more and is gaining confidence. The teachers speak slowly and clearly. She can go at her own pace and repeat lessons she doesn't quite grasp. Even though she is an older teen, she still loves hearing the positive feedback when she answers a problem correctly. This is working well for us and I plan on using it to supplement her colege math classes too.”

"My daughter is homeschooled and in 9th grade and has been struggling with algebra 1. Though we were getting through math, she was very frustrated and not certain of all the concepts. After one day of using "math help" she was smiling and understanding the concepts being explained. It was amazing as a mom to see her smile while doing math! She is now excited to do math and understands what she is doing. Thank you"”

I especially like this program and recommend it to many others. The videos are straight forward without the "cute" distractions often found in other videos and are broken into chunks so aren't overwhelming. This program offers multiple practice problems, notes, and answers in steps so I can easily see what was done correctly. I appreciate the additional practice problems.”

We started using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) about a month ago and so far so good! Algebra has been such a struggle with our daughter. We've tried different curriculums, the last being VideoText. Nothing seemed to worked. This program seems to be working. What a relief! She watches the video, does the practices problems, and then the test with better understanding than any other program we've tried. I'm so happy we tried it! And the cost...much less than what we paid for other programs and well worth every penny! Our daughter is happy!”

I am a math girl so I've always loved teaching my kids math BUT when I discovered MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) it changed our homeschool day! If someone had told me that we would do math on the computer, I would have never believed them. It has brought so much order to our day. I love love love it. My 15 yob will do every lesson until he has 100. For some reason this brings out his competitive side and he learns for the long haul. Best money I've ever spent on curriculum in my 15+ years of home teaching.. You will not regret subscribing. Just remember in order to save the work, you must renew b4 the renewal date. I believe this can be done anytime and the time is just added on. Just do it!”

I recently renewed my family's subscription to YourTeacher (MathHelp.com) because of how well the program works for us. Out of my 4 children, 2 are using the program as their main math curriculum. Though my boys are twins, they are working at different levels in math, and with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), curriculum for ALL grades is included at one price. This makes it a huge deal for families with multiple children! My oldest attends public school and even she can access the tenth grade curriculum if she needs extra help on a given topic. (There is an option to search a lesson based on specific school texts.)
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has created a strong format for online math instruction (some common core aligned, some not) in grades 5 and up for the visual/auditory learner. (If you are looking for a hands-on program, this is not it.) The lessons all include a 5 problem pre-test, a clear and concise video presentation (and often additional audio/visual instruction), 8 practice problems with varying degrees of optional support (step-by-step completion, multiple choice answers, or check your answer), more printable practice problems (and answers), printable notes for each lesson, and a 5 problem post-test. Students are given immediate feedback on their answers and scores for all test attempts are recorded. The one thing missing, I feel, is a test at the end of each chapter. As one might expect, sometimes a concept is easily understood and a student may not access all of the support offered, but it sure is appreciated when things get tough!
There is one additional feature that I feel is worth mentioning. If your student is struggling with a particular lesson (multiple post-test attempts), the program will alert you to previous lessons to review. I find this most helpful and allows us to backtrack for mastery!
My sons love that they can complete their math assignments independently and work at their own pace. I love that I can log in and check their progress at any time.
I have looked into a few other math programs. The closest I would compare this to is CTC. We listened to some of the CTC samples and felt they were so similar and yet we were happy with what is already working for us at a much better price. I've also looked into Teaching Textbooks, and again, similar approach but I am not a fan of discs.
Take advantage of the free trial period YourTeacher (MathHelp.com) has to offer. It's the best way to see how well the program might work for your family! Pretty sure we'll be using it for several more years!”
J. Brosnan, Co-op Member
This is our 2nd year of using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for math. My now 6th & 7th graders have done very well with it. It is easy to manuever and the lessons are short and concise which makes my students happy! My involvement is minimal which makes me happy!”
Tracy K, Co-op Member
We got the free subscription 2 summers ago and loved MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) that my son asked to use it the following year. We used it to prep him for the PSAT as well. We renewed again this year! Thank you to Homebuyerscoop for negotiating a great deal!”
Jaymie G., Co-op Member
We used MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) in a free trial this year. My son is not fond of Math and doesn't 'gel' with much of what I've tried. However, we both really liked using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). The lady instructor is pretty and has a nice voice. We liked the practice questions and the tips to help when you get stuck. He was able to do his book work in front of the computer. For once, I didn't have to struggle to convince my son to do Math, he was there ready to begin his lessons.”
T.Tabs, Co-op Member
My son, who is in the 10th grade this year, has "always" struggled with math. I found this program through the homeschool buyers co-op and decided to try it. We did geometry last year and he finished with an 85.4 average, which was absolutely great for him! But we were dreading Algebra I this year. I really didn't know if he would be able to do it or not. But right now he has a 92.1 average. As he was doing some word problems a few days ago, (they have always been the hardest for him), he was so excited and said, "Who would have ever thought I would be doing problems like this?!!) The teacher made them so easy to understand an it was a joy to see my son's happiness as he solved each one.
I absolutely LOVE this program. It was truly an answer to prayer. I tell everyone I can about it and encourage them to try it; especially if they have someone who struggles with math. Thank you so much for creating this program!!!”
J. Dale, Co-op Member
Both my daughter and I are math phobic- The mention of the word math usually gives her this wildeyed look of exasperation. MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)is the third math program we have tried in three years. The other two are also well known and excellent programs. Since starting MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) in September my daughter has come to me several times and stated that she really likes the program and doesn't even hate math this year! Thank you!:)”
Rachael C, Co-op Member
This program is so well organized, thought-out, and logical it makes it easy for me to teach Pre-Algebra to my grandson. There is a teacher/video for each section through the whole course. Then there is a quiz after each unit, all automatically logged into the child's progress document. There are chapter tests with answer keys (also on the progress documents) which can be printed, and extra worksheets with answer keys for the tough spots. I plan to use MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for all their courses going forward. Worth the money!”
Andrea Kanter, Co-op Member
My daughter has a math learning disability. It has been extremely difficult to find people to work with her and public and private schools have no idea how to address math LD. We are home schooling. This program is proving very effective for us. We are able to take our time, she can get immediate assistance as she works problems. Repetition is key for her and using this program we can get lots of that.”
S Chaplin, Co-op Member
My daughter has always struggled with learning new math concepts, and has anxiety over doing math. I have tried a few different programs and curriculums trying to find one that works well for her with the least anxiety and the most learning. I got MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) as a free summer trial, and she actually said it was easy to understand, and she was very proud of herself for accomplishing so much is such a short amount of time. Just this week she's been doing pre algebra with fractions (her biggest struggle has been understanding fractions) and she's not only understood, but she's been doing extra work because it's "easy" and her confidence is so much better. It took a while, but we finally have the right math for her.
I definitely recommend this program especially if your kids are struggling with understanding math concepts. We bought a year for both older kids and will use it when my youngest is old enough.”
Karen H, Co-op Member
My son and I both really like MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)! It is well organized, the lessons are easy to follow, areas of weakness are displayed for further review, and the grading report is quick and easy to access. There are many math subjects to choose from, including test prep. I highly recommend it!”
Shannon C., Co-op Member
It is a great program and it helped my son to finish some materials that it was hard for me to help. It brought a positive effect on my son and a sense of relief plus acomplishment. My son loved it and it was easy to understand.”
Fam, Co-op Member
My 3 kids have always had always had anxiety over math. I decided to try the free Co-op summer deal for MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) from mathhelp.com. My daughter immediately felt anxiety just at my mentioning it. When I told her it's just summer, there is no grade, she can go at her own pace, and to just explore what they have to offer in how they teach, she relaxed and tried it with a more open mind. After doing it all summer, she feels comfortable with the program, doesn't get anxiety when I ask her to do a lesson or 2, and said she would like to do this math all year long.
My oldest son just started his free trial for the summer and right away said it's easy to understand the concept. I think we have the winning ticket here for my kids homeschool math. Just need to get my youngest son on here too, math makes him cry, this may help reduce his anxiety too.”
Karen H., Co-op Member
We had looked at the MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) math before but were hesitant due to the cost. Being able to try it this summer was a huge plus! We found that two of our children who were struggling in HS math and testing were able to see their level taught from a different perspective and LOVED it! We will now follow through with using this online program to finish their math. Many thanks to all who were involved in this offer!”
Deb Beat, Co-op Member
I subscribed to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for the summer so that my 5th, 7th and 8th grade children would have math practice over the summer. They LOVE this program!!!! I love it as well because my children are able to work independently. The lessons provide information in a clear and concise manner. This allows the children to make quick reference notes for each subject. By summers end they will have a binder with formulas and explanations that they will be able to quickly refer to if they are ever stuck on a problem. I will definitely extend the subscription for each child for the 2014 school year. Thank you so much for making math fun.”
S. Aderin, Co-op Member
Over the years we have utilized Abeka, Horizons and Calvert math programs. They are all very good programs and yet, our student has struggled through them even with the help of a tutor this past year. We began using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) this summer to strengthen existing skills and to lay groundwork for new material that will be encountered in 6th grade math. This is the first time that my child is actually inspired to attempt the work on her own and I am consistently hearing her say "Now I understand." The teaching videos are engaging and provide clear and understandable presentations of the topics. As a parent of a child with some visual challenges requiring vision therapy, I was attracted to this program not only for the content but also the format. My student had difficulty with textbooks and workbooks that provided a lot of material on each page set in bright colors and pictures, even in a 5th grade math book. Each lesson on MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has several videos, which are either a teacher explaining a concept or are "chalkboard" presentations from the same teacher. The lessons provide just the right amount of information in a format that is straightforward, and from our standpoint, much less distracting than other formats we have encountered. (For instance, I love KHAN academy lessons; however, the lessons incorporate a lot of color on a black background and this has been very difficult for my daughter to follow due to her vision challenges). Each lesson on MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) provides a number of sample problems that the student can do and then a self-test to be completed. My understanding is that there is also a library of worksheets that can be printed out for additional practice for each lesson. We have not used them as yet but I am thankful that I have them as an option. I like that MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) gives me opportunity to choose as little or as much work for my student to do and she is encouraged along the way. This is much different than our experience with IXL over the school year which was not enjoyable for my daughter. Although it provided more than enough practice for her, either we did not see it or IXL did not have the teaching component that attracted us to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). Also, IXL was difficult for my perfectionist daughter who found that if she performed one problem incorrectly, the IXL program seemed to penalize her for more than just that one wrong answer. I sensed she felt that she was always in the mode of "two steps forward and three steps back." We will continue MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)through the year as a supplement to Saxon math which our student will be utilizing as part of a homeschool "co-op" program that will be meeting one day a week. My understanding is that MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) provides a list of lessons that correlate with specific math textbooks including a number of editions of Saxon math. We look forward to using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) alongside our Saxon text this year.”
Sue in DE, Co-op Member
I have used the MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for about 3 weeks and love it. My homeschool student has ADD/LD and needs reinforcement during the summer. The math lessons are easy to understand and has a good number of practice problems. The test at the end of Sections helps ensure he has mastered the concepts.”
DyAnn, Co-op Member
I bought my children the self study Kaplan ACT prep course last year. It was not much help. So when I saw the the Mathhelp free through August offer I jumped on it. So far so good. There are reviews for everything that will be on the ACT and the tests and lessons are very encouraging. My daughter actually likes it! Will probably buy the program in the fall.”
E Saucedo, Co-op Member
This summer we've been trying out the MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) Algebra 2 with my tenth grade daughter. It has been just what we needed. She watches the demonstrations and is usually able to complete the assignments without any further explanation from me. The demonstrations are very thorough. We love the program!”
K. Walker, Co-op Member
Just right for us, the videos are short and to the point. There are extra worksheets available if you need them. After working with the free trial and meeting with much success, we will be using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for the coming year. Thank-you!”
Andrea Kanter, Co-op Member
I am so pleased with this program and very happy that we had the opportunity to try it out through the summer. My son has been behind in math for a while and I was frustrated with trying to figure out what program would truly teach him and would also be easy for me to navigate. He has been doing great so far and we are now confident that by using this program, he will complete pre algebra and actually retain what he has learned...and be confident and prepared for the next level. YourTeacher has been the best math program/resource for my son yet. I am praying we will be able to continue with the program for the next term also. The overall success has been such a blessing to my family. Thank you for offering this special trial. As I said, I am hoping to continue using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) and I know of at least one family that I suggested it to that's has been using the product also, and is pleased with the success they have had.”
Callie Johnson, Co-op Member
I just started homeschooling officially this past week but I had subscribed to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) before the end of public school. I was terrified that I would hinder my gifted child once I started homeschooling so this was my opportunity to see just where she's at in learning. I love that she's been able to move freely from what is boring to what actually challenges her. She loves it. We sat for a couple days and blew through lessons till we found right where she needs to be and she loves that she's in control of her learning. Thank you for offering this product and easing my panic while creating something she truly enjoys doing.”
Cyndie Creasman, Co-op Member
My 10 year old is currently working through 6th grade material with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). The lessons explain everything so clearly that it makes it simple to understand. If you get a answer wrong they have a option to see the problem worked out. He is understanding the math concepts quickly and enjoys MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). This is one of the best math programs on the market in our opinion.”
Dawn Johnson, Co-op Member
I love MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), I'm using it to gauge my children's grasp of the concepts using the pre-tests. They've just told me that the online teacher explains concepts that they were not grasping and now they get it! It won't take us long to be ready for their CAT test.”
Sheila, Co-op Member
This is the only math curriculum that my girls, 12 and 15 have not complained about doing. We have used it for 2 years in a row and have found it to be extremely helpful in prepartion for the College Math CLEP. The lessons on probability and square roots were invaluable as they presented the material in clear language with great examples. My oldest daughter passed her College Math CLEP with an excellent score, far above what was necessary. As my younger daughter progresses through the pre-algebra I have told her to pay attention because she will see it again on the CLEP. Thank you for all your help.”
Laurie Keehn, Co-op Member
We absolutely love this program. The explanations are excellent and dd finally gets it. I think we have tried every math program out there and this one more than any other makes math easy. With scores in the high 90,s ,we are delighted. We will purchase this product for next school year.”
Liz L, Co-op Member
This program has worked well with my homeschool students. We love how the videos can be played as many times as needed, and are easy to understand.”
S, Smith, Co-op Member
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has been an absolute lifesaver for our household. I believe that along with my son's hard work and dedication, MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) definitely helped him reach his goal of qualifying for advanced algebra. My wife also used it to review for a teaching placement exam. We will be using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for some time to come and will continue to rave about it's proven results.”
James M., Co-op Member
After Homeschooling for 12 years, We have FINALLy found something that truly works for us and our children! The lessons are clearly presented and there is enough practice for them to truly learn and master what they need! Love MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)!”
Cristina G., Co-op Member
We signed up for MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) a few summers ago because.. well, it was free. My kids loved it so much that we have continued using it. The videos offer great instruction and my kids have been able to progress at their own speed thru highchool math.”
J., Co-op Member
This comprehensive math curriculum has been one of the best finds in our homeschool journey. This program enables not only my children to fully learn the material, but also aids me in helping them when the need arises. The video lessons are easily understood and I greatly appreciate the independence this curriculum enables. I highly recommend MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), especially for the home-educator who feels less-than-confident in this area.”
Samantha, Co-op Member
We started using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) about 4 years ago and absolutely love it. My oldest did so well w/the program, that his ACT & SAT scores allowed him to test out of all college math required for a pre-med major. Now my next 2 boys are enrolled. It allows them to go over lessons at their own pace & really learn math.
Our local college is amazed at their results, which I believe is attributed to the ease of learning, both visual & auditory.
I think the price point is at a good place right now. Any higher & it would prevent families from joining.
The positive results has given me the opportunity to share this program with others in my home education group & other families who might need extra help for their children.”
Jennifer, Co-op Member
This is a terrific program for students and parents. It allows the student to proceed at his/her own pace with full access to well-produced teaching videos, written examples and explanations, practice problems, and assessments. Parents have access to the student's progress reports as well as all student work and videos so they can oversee the work without having to teach daily lessons. My students are learning and enjoying their math lessons, and so am I!”
Mary K., Co-op Member
My children would complain about math everyday until they started using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). They enjoy working at their own pace and the short (yet concise)videos. They started using it last year and liked it, so we are using it again this year.”
Cheryl B. E., Co-op Member
I have used MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) at home for two years now. It provides great tutorials. The only drawback is that it does not cover every page of exercises for Saxon Algebra 1 and the pages they say they cover are not always lined up with the book. I would recommend the service.”
Lisa F., Co-op Member
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)is awesome! A terrific tool for conquering math anxiety. Covers all learning styles too; audio, visual, and tactile. A tremendous resource for learning, and review. I recommend it to everyone, especially those with math anxiety. They present the material in step by step format. You can't go wrong with this! Plus all the college entrance exam prep curriculum!”
Chris F., Co-op Member
A+ for MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)! Not being a former Math major myself and finding most texts written for the classroom setting (and for teaching by those who were Math majors), I was thrilled to find MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) on the Co-op. My formerly math-phobic kids are excelling. Their understanding of math concepts has skyrocketed. Now, they usually pick Math as one of the first subjects of the day instead of procrastinating.
We had used YT in the past; but I sheepishly admit that last year, I looked for a computer-based program that had more bells and whistles. We tried two different programs, but we were greatly disappointed and have come back to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher).
YT is basic but comprehensive. The pre-tests ensure that the student doesn't waste time on topics already mastered. YT doesn't bog the student down with busywork but gives opportunities for more practice if needed (and tells the student where he/she needs the review!).
I'm so thankful that the Co-op is here and provides the cost-savings that my family so greatly needs. YT is affordable (or much less expensive than) and comparable to traditional texts, and it's more interactive as well.
I've shared info about HSBC and YT with many homeschool friends and passed it onto the email loops, and I plan to use it for the coming years of high school. Thanks, HSBC and YT!”
C Harrison, Charlotte, NC, Co-op Member
I have a child who hates math. We have tried so many different approaches, including Saxon, Math-U-See, Khan Academy, Life of Fred and Teaching Textbooks. My favorite was TT but he remained miserable and frustrated. After using the free trial offered for the summer months we had a winner. I am so thankful for the discount that made this affordable for my family. It is my sincere hope the offer is repeated, both the free trial and the discount. Homeschoolers in WV are on our own and I don't think I could afford this without one. Thank you Homeschool Buyers Co-op & great big thanks to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)!”
Stephanie, Co-op Member
We have used MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) math for 1 month and have liked it so far. We didnt realize that the 5th & 6th grades were not a complete curriculum so we have added another program to this. The short, precise lessons are well liked by my 'students'!”
Tracy, Co-op Member
My 10 year old has a mind for math. He whizzed thru Math Mammoth thru to the end (6th grade math) and I was wondering what to use this next year. We tried the summer freebie and he is really enjoying it, so we bought the subscription. He finished pre-algebra and is doing algebra without my help. The lessons are clear and short, and build on the previous concept. We will continue to use the MM 7th and 8th grade worksheets to give extra practice, but it really is stand-alone. A great product.”
Jenn K., Co-op Member
This math program was a great addition to our high school curriculum. My son was starting to become more advanced in math than my husband and I and he was impatient waiting on us to figure it out and then teach him how to do it. MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has an active teacher teaching the concepts and provides very useful tips and tricks. I am even learning some new things to make advanced math easier. My son used to hate word problems, but now that this program has taught him how to approach them, he doesn't fight them anymore. We will continue to use this program to the highest math available because of it's flexibility and approach to teaching the concepts.”
Heather W., Co-op Member
This is a great program. Online lectures, exercises, test and quizzes. My daughter needs a textbook for math and we loved the fact that MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) allows you to track to the chapter and page number of a large list of great textbook choices. We will be using them again.”
Nita, Co-op Member
Our family has benefited tremedously from MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). It offers the one on one teaching that a mother of 5 cannot always offer. It allows the kids to go at their own pace and not have to wait for me to get to them to answer questions. My oldest daughter started Community College this year, and uses MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to help her understand math concepts that weren't clear to her in the classroom. It is money well spent.”
Sondra Moritz, Co-op Member
I enjoy MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), and my daughter enjoys MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). Algebra becomes easy when you understand what your doing and MathHelp.com 's (formerly known as YourTeacher) methods of teaching make algebraic concepts easy to understand. My daughter loves math because she understands what she is doing. I would give Your Teacher an A+.”
Vickie B., Co-op Member
I finally found a program that fits my son's needs with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). Online public school was just as politically charged as brick-and-mortar schools. They try to cram so-o-o many unnecessary things into our kids' heads. We thought LifePacs would be great for him because we are Christian; however, it seems the material is religiously overloaded, which actually worked AGAINST getting my son more involved with the Word of God. He just stopped doing the work, even though he could do it. With MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), the video teachings and practice problems are clear, without all the complicated thoughts of the day, so to speak. My son actually made the comment that he wished MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) had other subjects that could be taught in the same manner. Thumbs up for MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)!”
Christina M., Co-op Member
We have been using "your Teacher" this summer for Algebra II, and so far, it has been a huge blessing to us. I was concerned about how I was going to teach this subject, I found that Algebra I was probably as far as I could take my children. I was also concerned about teaching two students who absorb math in totally different ways. This program enables them to work at their own speed and I feel much more confident with the instruction. I like the format, it is mostly on the computer, but each lesson also has problems that can be printed out for extra practice.”
Jennifer V, Co-op Member
I love the fact that my son could switch from Algebra 2 to Geometry without needing to buy anything else or contact them. I love that you can switch back and forth and use whichever math you need at the time.”
S. Romero, Co-op Member
The test preparation lessons and practice questions were great. They were more challenging than the test itself therefore great preparation! I will continue to use your service and tell others about it! It will change lives, as careers now require so much more than a high school diploma. Thanks for the free offer.”
E. Penn, Co-op Member
I am mathematically challenged, but my children LOVE math! I'm so thankful for the free summer subscription to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)! My 13 year old is starting 8th grade this year and is almost finished with algebra already! She likes having a person on the screen talking and working the problems rather than just voice and graphics. a full subscription my be on my list soon!”
R. Ball, Co-op Member
Oh, we so loved it. I think I'm going to buy it for my daughter. She is having trouble with her 8th grade math. It really helped her. She can go to the problem and get the answer. She doesn't have to go through all the other problems to get the her answer. I would tell others about it. She went to Hunterton for a year and they didn't help her but with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) she's understanding math.”
tammy cordery, Co-op Member
I am so thankfull to the Homeschool Buyers Co-op and to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for making this great online math program available for a free trail. It has made a huge difference to my daughter's ability and attitude towards math.
Before MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) math was a constant struggle and fight at home but now she agrees to sit and do it and has learned so much more in a couple of months time than what we would have covered in a whole a year. I am very grateful for this.
I highly recomend trying this program out. I am looking now at purchasing the yearly subscription. Thankyou MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) and thank you Co-op”
Michal T, Co-op Member
Very helpful to my kids for learning math. I have told many others about it and they use it for their kids too.”
Edward Jackson, Co-op Member
This is the best tool I have seen for teaching and re-enforcing high school math concepts and providing efficient learning opportunities for specific math skills. I especially like it that I can see exactly what was accomplished and how the students did. As a mathematician, I appreciate the thoroughness and accuracy of the instruction.
My kids thought it was very user friendly, not much time used to figure out just how to use the sight, more time to learn the math.
I will be trying to continue to use it. It is well worth the cost.”
Kim, Co-op Member
Wow! My children are enjoying using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) and learning Math in a very efficient way. I like that they can take a pretest, then decide if they need to go in depth into that lesson.
I highly recommend it.”
Amjad Najjar, Co-op Member
This is an awesome program! I had previously the electronic version of the Pre-Algebra book and signed up for the free use of MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op. My daughter is doing so well and she will be able to take the class she is scheduled for in the Fall! The instructors on the videos do an excellent job in explaining the lesson.”

I love this website! I tried a couple of Algebra 2 curriculums for my daughter and i didn't understand it so i couldn't help her. MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has a video to explain everything. This is working great for my daughter! She's ahead now for this school year.”
Anna Kinney, Co-op Member
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has made a tremendous impact on my daughter's math scores and her confidence. She has struggled in math but she is understanding the concepts now after starting MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). The program is easy to use and very well done. I would definitely recommend MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to anyone who has a struggling math student.”
Jodi B, Co-op Member
I was astonished to say the least when I found out how much MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) had to offer to me and my children. We were digging in and finding all kinds of help for our mathematical issues. This website has helped us beyond what words cans describe. Thank you so much for this program and it's ability to make math fun again, even for a 40 year old.”
Walter Jossey, Co-op Member
We were struggling to get our oldest to do his prealgebra, though we knew he could. Once we started with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) he excelled in prealgebra and after only a short time, tested in to algebra for the following fall.
He enjoyed the fact that he could turn the teacher on and off depending on what material was being taught.
Thanks for curriculum!”
Donna, Co-op Member
Our whole family was impressed by the free trial, and my kids are HARD to impress. We did sample lessons from 4 different computer based math programs, and this was the one they chose to use for the fall.”
April D., Co-op Member
This has been an excellent product. I have 2 LD sons who struggle with math. I have been using this program over the summer to keep them fresh and to pick up some of the concepts they missed or didn't understand well enough the first time. It isn't flashy, it is solid and easy to use. We usually use the ALEKS program over the summer and both kids commented they liked this much better and felt like they " moved " faster.”
Pam, mom of 3, Co-op Member
We have been quite pleased with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)! My high school student needed some refreshing in algebra and MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has been the perfect fit. The videos are clear and concise and he can move quickly if he understands a concept by doing the pretest or slow down and spend extra time on a concept. We appreciate being able to print extra practice problems when needed and print the notes from each section. We will definitely be purchasing this for our fall studies!”
L.S., Co-op Member
Our free subscription to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has been a great help in our homeschooling. I love how it is easy to test where each child is.
Our 16yo daughter has struggled with math for years. She is now using the pre-algebra videos. The pre-tests are great to help her see where her weaknesses are. She says these videos have been clear and helpful to help her advance (finally!).
We will also be starting our 10yo daughter on the pre-tests for fractions. She just finished a program for fractions and I want to make sure she truly knows it before I move her on. I feel confident that if she shows a weakness, that these videos will get her up to speed.
Thank you for this resource!”
Stephanie Jackson, Co-op Member
This was a very positive experience for me! I love it. The videos are short and succinct, very easy to understand. The short quizzes were nice. The math teacher at my home-schooling association said that it would count towards my math mark. I would definitely continue to use it, and I have told my friends about it.”
Grace, Gr. 10, Co-op Member
My daughter had struggled all year in Algebra I. I saw this offer and thought - why not? We started over and she is doing so much better and understanding it better. I'm keeping this for the rest of her highschool.”
Jenny D., Co-op Member
My daughter loves this program. She has been advancing in math faster than I can keep up, and it is giving her the advantage of short clear lessons with flexibility to change the class she is taking.”
Hillary M., Co-op Member
It is great to have the ability to focus on their weaknesses and improve them without wasting time on things they already know! Thank you!”
TDM, Co-op Member
We love MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) program. Our son enjoys the interaction and option to work on the computer. As a parent, the lesson plan are easy to follow and understand. This is a great tool for summer work!”
Mrs. Borrero, Co-op Member
I jumped on board with this free trial for the summer. My son has Loved it!! This is the first time we have used the computer for Math, now we are changing to a Math computer program. We are comparing this program with others on the market. We are leaning to keeping this one :) I told the moms at our year end meeting about this special, and about the Homeschool Buyers Co-op! Thank you for serving us so well!”
T. Lavy, Co-op Member
I have struggled to teach algebra 1 for a long time. The way things are explained in this curriculum is very understandable! My son is using Alpha Omega Monarch curriculum for geometry. He was having trouble understanding some of the principles. After listening to a few lessons on YourTeacher.com (now at MathHelp.com), he could understand and complete the problems in his A&O lesson. I am so thankful a friend told me about this Co-op website in order to get linked to the free lessons in algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, and more. I have told others whom I thought could benefit from it as well. Thank you!!”
Deb Compton, Co-op Member
My son and I are enjoying using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher). Because of the "pre-test" feature it allows one to review, display knowledge and move on. As a teacher/parent I appreciate the word problems (though wished there were more of them) for they truly help to concretize the knowledge gained. The lessons are short and to the point. Great bonus when you have an ADD/ADHD child!
I have indeed told other homeschoolers about this product.
Currently we are using it as a review tool. Shortly we are going to use this product to learn new material. Based on its effectiveness I shall decide if we keep on using it or not. As of now so far, so good!”
Mrs Jaeggi, Co-op Member
I have a son in 7th grade with ADHD. He likes everything on the computer, and dislikes most school books. Comparing MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) with his old textbook, he loves it! At MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), the lessons are short (but thorough), and to the point, which works really well for him. He is able to do multiple lessons a day without a problem. They are explained well, and he seems to have no problems understanding the concepts.
I like it because I don't have to teach him the concepts, nor be disappointed that he didn't read something in a book he was supposed to read to understand a new concept. It takes away some of the hand-holding that I had to do.
It also gives instant feedback. He can see right away where his grades are at. It takes that pressure off of me to be constantly grading and giving feedback.
I would recommend MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) especially for kids who need a variety in their school day, or for parents trying to teach multiple grade levels, or to any homeschool family who is lacking time...and isn't that really all of us?”
R. Easter, Co-op Member
I'm trying this with my daughter who is 16 as a refresher course. I love math, her, not so much. While I could teach this level of math to her, having someone else do it has been beneficial for her. We like this so much that I've already recommended it to several friends. The guy they have teaching knows what he's doing and can convey how to do it to the student. We will probably continue using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for her last year of high school since she is responding so well. One of the better online math programs we have used.”
Lynne Auchterlonie Tidei, Co-op Member
We have used MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for a couple of weeks to review what the girls learned this past year with another math curriculum. It has been a tremendous help in finding the holes where they needed extra practice. The lessons are short and to the point. I like the ability to take a test 20 times with different questions each time. While they have usually passed in one or two takes, it is there for them to practice later if needed. I like being able to quickly watch with them and make sure they understand the concept without it taking a lot of my time. The number of review questions on screen are adequate with extra problems to print out if needed. The deep thought question has tricked me from time to time. Great logic practice.
My 11 year old wants to use MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) as her only math curriculum next year. That is quite an endorsement since she hates math.
My 14 year old is working through geometry lessons that she needed to prepare for her national standardized test. We will use this along with her Videotext Algebra II next year.
All in all I have had no complaints from either girl and both have wanted to use this through the summer to keep up with what they have learned so far. Doesn't get any better than that.”
Laurie Keehn, Co-op Member
This has made it possible for my two oldest children to do their math while I teach the younger ones to read. I also have found it especially useful to find areas of weakness.”
Liisa, Co-op Member
I was really impressed with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)-the video explanations of math sample problems are easy to follow. I can refresh myself by viewing videos before teaching my son a new topic or my son can view them either as a refresher for a topic previously learned or to learn a new topic. I like the short 5 question pre/post tests and that the student has 20 opportunities to take the test. My son will return to public high school in the fall but I may renew my subscription to have as support for him if he has a hard time grasping a new topic. I also like that topics can be sorted by common core standards or my subject matter, e.g. Pre Algebra, Algebra, Geometry. We will use it this summer to retest him on math topics he covered in public school and math topics I taught him before I discovered Your Teacher.”
Diane Terry, Co-op Member
We have been using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for a few weeks now and LOVE it. Math is not our favorite subject, however that is starting to change. Everything is laid out very nicely and is easy to use. The videos and step by step help are really great and easy to follow. My daughter loves doing the tests and scoring 100%. Her motivation to do math using Your Teachers has greatly increased making it much more enjoyable for us both. Thank you to the Co-op for making this great deal available to the members.”
Fiona Nottoli, Co-op Member
I love this program and would recomend it any one who wants to learn math.”
Hodan Abdiaziz, Co-op Member
This has been such a blessing for our family. Two of my children are doing the Geometry. My 14 year old son has Asperger's/ADHD and is a very visual thinker, so this is a perfect match for him, and the fact that it is online means he doesn't always have to go searching for his misplaced math book :) The teaching is clear, engaging and interactive.
I am really grateful to Homeschool Buyer's Co-op for making this product available (this was a free trial so even better!) at reduced cost. I would not have known about it otherwise.”
Nanci S., Co-op Member
My 12yr old son is using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) this summer as review. He is currently working on the Pre-algebra section. I really enjoy it and think it is a great learning tool as well as a refresher. My son enjoys it because the lessons are not to long and there are not a lot of problems. There are extra problems though that can be done should you need more practice in a certain area. It is also self grading which is a benefit to me and to him.”
Kim G, Co-op Member
I love it. My son uses it every day. He actually asked me to subscribe to it when the freebie runs out. The lessons are easy to follow and the index is well set out, making it easy to find lessons on concepts he needs extra help with. I've recommended it to everyone i know.”
penny, Co-op Member
My daughter now enjoys Math after using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) program. She has requested that we continue using it for next years math courses. Takes stress out of learning for her. She likes that she can see the problem, hear how to solve the problem, and can self test to see if she has learned how to do the problems. She enjoys printing out and working on the extra problem worksheets.”
Dianne J., Co-op Member
My son used this program for his 10th grade geometry and loved it. My daughter is now doing the same. She much prefers it over Saxon in that the lessons are shown to her and they are short. The feedback is wonderful as well. She feels so proud when she does well. Thank you so much for this program. It really has made math as enjoyable as it can be for a child who would prefer to be reading a book:)”
Kelly Tressler, Co-op Member
Two words: life saver! My daughter was struggling with pre-algebra and "hated" math. I was already dreading trying to teach her algebra next school year. She loves MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher)! The lessons are easy for her to follow, and she likes being able to repeat the videos as many times as she needs to until she gets it. I like the gradebook feature that makes it very easy for me to certify her grades. We highly recommend MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) and will definitely be purchasing the year license for her to use for freshman algebra 1. The price for a full year of access is very affordable. THANK YOU!”
S. Sims, Co-op Member
My three high schooler students have been using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for the past 9 months and love it! After using 3 other math curricula, finally a program that explains each concept thoroughly.
As mom, I appreciate the opportunity the student has to relearn and retest up to ten times. This encourages true understanding of the material. The MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) curriculum provides every opportunity for math success.”
JoAnne, Co-op Member
Simple to use and it is like getting a one-on-one teaching. Great product for kids and adults too. My daughter compared it to IXL and said she likes this one. We will continue to use it for this summer and may purchase it should she need further help with Math during the school year.”
P. Roberts, Co-op Member
I chose to use MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) as a review for the end of the year. I wish we had been using it all year! Easy to use for my son and I. Also, the background lessons are a great help when he struggles with something.”
J. Green, Co-op Member
We have been using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for about a month now and my daughter seems to really enjoy her lessons. She is not a math lover, but seems to have made progress with this program. We are seriously considering adding it for the next school year. The lessons are well taught in a simple, straight forward manner. I would definitely recommend this program”
Kids first, Co-op Member
My 10 year old is very happy with MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) program. This videos are very short and to the point. We are planning to stay with this program. He is filling in the blanks going through the pre-algebra program. We previously used Math Mammoth though 5th grade. Great program. But he switched to Khan for the badges. Big mistake. The MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) program is easy to use and if he finds something difficult he an go back a grade and learn the concept quickly. I wish I had known about this program for 6th grade and up. Thankful we have it now.”
Donna, Co-op Member
My daughter was very concerned about taking college entrance exams and was thrilled when we found this program!”
p raif, Co-op Member
I bought the program for my math reluctant learner to catch up during summer break. So motivation wasn't exactly the highest. My teenager however liked the lessons and the flexibility of being able to watch the lesson or look at examples, practice problems or an assessment. My teenager liked it better than a DVD based program we have. I would recommend it and I am using it now for act review.”
Deann, Co-op Member
MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) is a fantastic resource for maths. The video teachers clearly explain each topic in a way that my children can understand.”
Jane, Co-op Member
I have graduated 3 students of my own and help to tutor my friends children in math. I have used MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to help me particularly with those children that I can't see everyday. It is one of the most effective tools out there. My students get to take a teacher home with them allowing for them to get their work done every day instead of waiting until they can see me again. Math is one of the hardest subjects to out source for homeshchool parents because it should be absorbed a little at a time each day but when you take an out class once a week that means that the other days that you are at home you are on your own. The instructor is put in a situation where they have to try to push into the student five or so days of learning so that the student can finish at home. MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) allows the student to receive instruction on a day to day basis and that is a huge plus. The instructors are easy to understand and thoroughly explain each lesson allowing for independent study for the students. I love it.”
Tonya Watson, Co-op Member
Using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) has been amazing for my high school student! Being able to watch the math problems step by step makes it so much easier! It is amazing seeing the reactions when the children realize how to do each step. The teacher is Wonderful at explaining all the processes. I really really enjoy this product and will continue to use it in the future.”
Becky W., Co-op Member
I have found MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to be a valuable homeschooling tool. My son is taking geometry this year and I am very rusty on the subject. He can go to MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher), find the area he is working on, and have a teacher explain and demonstrate that area of geometry with examples. Love it!”
RM, Co-op Member
This program offers clear, concise treatment of the math topics. You receive flexibily to move up and down courses without another fee. Highly recommended. It also allowed "our perfectionist" to retake quizes until she earned a perfect score. I would, however, recommend that the site make available more challenge questions and more than one printable practice sheet for each topic.”
L Burns, Co-op Member
My daughters, who were struggling with Algebra and Geometry, have found MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) to be very helpful. The video explanations have helped them to succeed in math.”
Carol I., Co-op Member
My son has been using MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) for almost a year. His advances in math are astounding. The video lessons are so easy to understand. He can do math on his own now without struggling. He even likes math now!”
Ami L., Co-op Member
My daughter was really struggling with the math curriculum we were using and every school day was torture for both of us because of it. I was so frustrated until I remembered that we had tried a trial version of MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) last summer and it was so easy for Erica to pick up on that it made her summer math time enjoyable. Thanks to Homeschool Buyers Co-op and MathHelp.com (formerly known as YourTeacher) partnering with them, our family was able to afford the yearly subscription!”
Heather Stanton, Co-op Member
This math curriculum has been a perfect fit for my daughter's needs. She has a math textbook, but she really wanted a teacher to show her how to do the problems. With this program, she can look up the math concept she needs help with and watch a great video presentation on how to work the problems. She can also test her understanding with a pre-test and additional math practice problems. Thanks for making this program available! I will be sharing this with my homeschooling friends!”
Tammy Hulse, Co-op Member
I enjoy math and like teaching it but needed help with keeping track of grades and schedules. Last year two of my high school children used Thinkwell for Geometry. They despised it and groaned everytime they had to work on Geometry lessons or problems. We tried the free trial of YourTeacher and really liked it. Therefore, we are using YourTeacher for Algebra 2 this year. The kids don't complain, are understanding the concepts better, and are getting great grades. I will probably be using YourTeacher for all my children's high school math needs from now on.”
Cheryl E., Co-op Member
I really love this program! I watch as my daughter works step by step, her quize scores are going up dramatically. The class room activities are clear and to the point. Thank you Your Teacher.”
EBL123, Co-op Member
Yourteacher.com has been a life saver. My daughter was struggling working through a traditional textbook. We were at wits end. When a friend told me about homeschool buyers co-op. It was there that we discovered YourTeacher and suddenly Math became possible again. I can't say enough good things about it. My daughter was able to work through independently. Now she loves Math and always does that subject first because she says it's the easiest. Whereas before using a textbook approach it was the most difficult, near impossible. It is set out better than anything else I have seen. We both love the way it is broken down into bite size pieces so that the student does not get overwhelmed. It is extremely simple and practical to use. The video explanations are like having a teacher in your own home. Only better because you can replay them as often as you like. The testing on-line and the fact it keeps a record of all the test results is both convenient and time saving. This is certainly great value for money.
Thanks so much for offering YourTeacher. I seriously don't know what we would have done without it.”
Mandie K., Co-op Member
I really appreciate this math tutorial. Our son is learning both geometry and algebra 2 very well by this method. Much better than last year before we found "YourTeacher". Thank you for this fine service. We like the fact that we can see how he is doing online on any computer. :O)”
Karen R., Co-op Member
This is a great program, totally relieving the parent of math duty! Your high schooler will be taught by a great and easy-to-understand teacher. No math book is needed, everything is done online. We looked at several other programs, and the teachers talked fast, and were harder to understand. This is just right, and the feedback system is great. Concepts and problems are repeated until your student "gets it"! Most of all, my very picky student likes it!”
Diane H., Co-op Member
So far we like YourTeacher very much. We've only used it a few weeks, but it is working well with our family.”
Marjorie B., Co-op Member
YourTeacher is a great program! Every summer we take advantage of their free trial. This Summer my 15yod completed the High School Geometry. She begged to continue using YourTeacher for AlgebraII. I am pleased at the thoroughness of the teaching. It is in short snippets and has plenty of practice.
I really like that they have a place where they tell you what is being covered in each level by taking a test and listing what lessons are being covered in Saxon Algebra II. This helps to fill in the differences between curriculum.”
Teri B, Co-op Member
My 12-year old son has been using YourTeacher.com for one month now. Math was not a strong subject for me, so I was thrilled to find such a comprehensive curriculum that my son could do independently. My son says that the lessons are laid out in an easy-to-understand format. He also said that the instructors do not ramble on like his previous math teachers in school! We have told other homeschool families about the program and I look forward to signing up again next year as well. Thank you, Homeschool Buyers Co-op for making it affordable, too!”
L. Faris, Co-op Member
YourTeacher.com is a great tool for our family. It offers my son extra help and extra practice in Algebra 1. The tutorial teaches him another method to solving the problems. We will sign up for it next year. I have been sharing information about Yourteacher.com with other parents who have expressed concerns about their children learning upper level math in public and private schools. Thanks so much for offering this to home schoolers!!”
Sheryl, Co-op Member
My son was weary of filling out notebooks with "bookwork". I was weary of hounding him to do math with the books. The online videos are clear, he can watch them 100 times if needed, and the reinforcing applause never hurt anyone's enthusiasm after answering an algebra equation. I just got home from a few hours out, and what was he doing at 5:15pm? Math without a word from me. We look forward to more years from this fine program.”
Laura Carlson, Co-op Member
My son began using YourTeacher.com over the summer. He loved it so much, he requested I purchase it for the next school year! This is a great program for visual learners. Sometimes it takes going over a lesson several times for my son to understand a concept. YourTeacher.com patiently explains it again and again until he gets it. The lessons are short enough to hold his attention and the practice problems are wonderful, because they proceed step by step through each problem. I have seen improvement in just this 1st quarter!
YourTeacher.com is great as a stand alone math program, but it also is an excellent suppliment if you prefer a textbook math program. Many lessons correspond to exact lessons in, for example, Saxon. You can type in a page number from the Saxon book, and get a YourTeacher.com lesson where a teacher is explaining that very topic.
I would strongly recommend this program. We plan to use it from pre-algebra to Calc!”
Kathleen S., Co-op Member
My children enjoy the program. They like the "notes" section. It sums up the material perfectly.”
Mechele, Co-op Member
We had nothing to lose from trying the free summer access YourTeacher.com offered through Homeschool Buyers' Co-op, even though our son is 10 and, while he has good math aptitude, wasn't especially advanced for his age in his prior knowledge of math. The pre-algebra course has provided a good review of the math he'd already, and he has also gone on to material we hadn't yet covered. I'm not usually that interested in video courses or lessons for my kids, but he has really learned from this! We do not have the largest homeschooling budget but my husband and I were in agreement that we should purchase a year's subscription (also through the Co-op) when the free summer access ended. Our son goes over each topic until he has mastered it, not just "passed" the tests, and it is easy for us to keep track through reports on the YourTeacher.com site of his progress and any areas in which he seems to need extra help, but this program has been great for helping him learn the material better and more efficiently than we probably could.”
Theresa F., Co-op Member
My 13 year old son loves yourteacher.com! He and I were finishing chores around the house one day and he said, "Do you need anything else done?" I replied "No, why?". He said "I want to go and get my math score up!". He loves doing the tests until he gets 100%. He loves the instant feedback and he is choosing to do more math than I would ever assign him. We love it!”
Angela and Nick, Co-op Member
My twelve year old, mathematically precocious son loves Yourteacher.com. He has completed Algebra using Yourteacher.com and will use it for school geometry as well. I am a college English teacher. Although I took advanced math through calculus, it has been a very long time since I have practiced advanced math. The videos that go with Yourteacher.com allow my son to hear math from a math teacher in short "board" lessons. Then he can practice what he has learned, checking his practice problems with further "board" lessons that show solutions for the practice problems. Then he quizzes himself. If he misses any, he can review the lessons again and re-take each quiz until he is confident with his mastery.
We have also used Thinkwell, and we like those videos, but my son prefers the instructors at Yourteacher because the are calmer and slower in the teaching. Likewise, he likes the clean presentation of Yourteacher (the whiteboard for Thinkwell can be cluttered and distracting). Whereas he would sometimes have to pause and rewind the Thinkwell videos, he doesn't generally have to do so with Yourteacher.”
Susan H, Co-op Member
I am so thankful for Your Teacher. My 12 yo son was intimidated by math, but with Your Teacher, every topic is explained fully and consistently with video and printable material for extra practice. It was always a struggle to get him to work in his Saxon workbook, but Your Teacher appeals to his visual learning style with real teachers doing the lesson on a white board. Parents can keep track of lessons completed and the overall score of quizzes completed. No cartoons, no cutesy graphics, no games, yet he loves it! Since math has never been my strong subject, we will definitely continue to use this product. I have been able to learn from it as well!”
Suzanne P., Co-op Member
My 8th-grader started using this site during a summer trial and we were both delighted with the video tutorials, step-by-step explanations, extra worksheets and variety of practice opportunities for all topics. My daughter loves the tone of each lesson and enjoys moving through at her own pace. When she needs a little more explanation she can review the lesson at leisure and when she's confident, moves on to the next. Her attitude toward understanding advanced math is no longer apprehensive; now she's excited! I feel even more positive because I know we have four levels of math topics to explore and will have the same support for each. I was happy to sign on for a full year of access this wonderful site and can't wait to watch my children excel because of it.”
Heather K., Co-op Member
YourTeacher.com has been worked extremely well with my son. He has ADHD so it's difficut to keep his focus. The program allows us to hone in on more lecture and problem help when needed and the pretests give him immediate feedback on how he is doing. It's an easy to use program and well organized. I will definitely continue to use this product in the future!”
N. Ross, Co-op Member
I must say that my 9th graders just love YourTeacher.com. They said they would do math all day long because they actually "get it" and are having fun learning. I never thought I would hear this coming from a teenager having to complete a Geometry class. We will be signing up again next year for sure!!!!”
R.Josephs, Co-op Member
We are so pleased with our subscription to YourTeacher.com! My 8th grade student is very strong in math, even though I am not. Since this is our first year homeschooling, I was very concerned about making sure he got the instruction he needed to continue to excel in math, but I really needed a complete program he could work with independently. YourTeacher.com is it! The instruction is strong, and presented in several different ways depending on the learning style of your student (auditory, visual, written...). It has printable worksheets and exams so that you can take work with you or provide samples as needed. I love that you have access to several subjects at once and he can move backward for additional review if necessary, but more often than not he is moving forward, and quickly. The program tracks his quiz grades online which makes for easy record-keeping and the technical support has been stellar, with exceptionally quick response times. Also, he can do his work anywhere he has internet access! We are very grateful for YourTeacher.com and the great discount we received through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op.”
Michelle D., Co-op Member
We are very excited to continue using yourteacher.com. We especially like the lessons that are synced with other curriculum. It has been very helpful with my son's understanding of his Saxon lessons. Great product!”
M. Montoya, Co-op Member
I have never felt inclined to write a testimonial about a product, but I truly belive YourTeacher.com is a Godsend for my son. He is in 7th grade, and has done primarily Singapore Math. I was really stuggling to teach the pre-algebra and algebra that he had moved on to, so I knew I needed help! We tried Yourteacher.com out this summer and I cannot say enough about how well it has gone for us. It is super user friendly, and it packs a lot into the lessons. My son is flying through the pre-algebra because he self-tests out of sections he knows he is strong on and I expect he will be moving onto algebra part way through the year. He keeps telling me that math is going great! I keep track of what he does on-line with his grades and I score his tests,etc. You get 4 high school level math programs for one price! What's not to love?!”
LAH, Co-op Member
We tried several different math curriculum and I was getting frustrated. My daughter was not happy with any of them. She does well, math is her best subject. When she tried this, she was so excited about it. It encompasses different parts from other curriculum we have used - video of teacher explaining, step by step instructions, practice and challenge questions, even printable tests and extra work. She really is enjoying this curriculum. The only 'negative' is on the printable test answer sheet, it only has the answers, not the steps broken down so she can see where she made a mistake. If they fixed that - perfect 5 star rating! So glad for the cheaper price as more people order it. I would not have been able to get it if the price had not gone down. Thank you!”

I love YourTeacher.com. The lessons are concise and clear, presented in easily understood steps, I wished that I was taught math this way!”
Tricia Santos, Co-op Member
This is the best online math tutorial I have ever seen. The teachers are excellent and the explanations are clear as crystal. The lessons are short, understandable and not too wordy. The interactive features are easy to use. My son struggles with math and he is learning a lot from this program. Highly recommended! YourTeacher.com is the best!”
Jill G., Co-op Member
We have used two different math programs for my 12 year-old. She struggles with math. They were not working and every day was a struggle for us. We decided to try yourteacher.com through the summer free trial that was offered through Homeschool Buyers Co-op. My daughter loved it! We were able to work on math 'all summer long!' We like the style of the teachers, the practice questions, how the answers to questions are presented in different ways, the deep thought question and the final test on each lesson. The only area I would love to see would be more word problems. We like the direct way the teachers present the material. All in all, a great purchase, and we are extremely happy with it!! Thank you to the Co-op for the wonderful price!”
Jill H., Co-op Member
My girls tried out Yourteacher.com this summer while looking for a new math program. We loved it. The features that I love that set it apart from others we have used are:
1. Available all day 24 hours....anytime you want to work
2. They have a choice to hear audio, just teacher/audio or animation
3. Gives the kids practice problems that are a way of learning and practicing that are stress-free as they do not count toward their score with solutions for all. They have a few problems per day that do count lessening the stress
4. They have an opportunity for more practice IF NEEDED
5. They have daily notes that can be printed from the lesson
6. The fact that we have access to other courses espically the SAT prep for the same price!
7. Self-graded
8. Lets the child/you know what area of weakness they have and shows them what work they would need to do to help
So far my kids have loved this math program. I have a child doing Pre-algebra and Geometry. I would highly recommend this to others.”
Diane, Co-op Member
What a great program. We started over the summer and got a jump on our school year. My daughter says this is the easiest way to learn yet! Thanks for the great, easy to understand program”
Heather in Cape Coral, Co-op Member
I absolutely love this program. The videos are very clear in explaining the concepts. And it really helps my kids to see the examples being explained instead of trying to figure it out in a book. And now, I don't have to spend so much time teaching the concepts at the beginning of each lesson. It has made my kids more independent.”
B. Temporal, Co-op Member
Love it. Has been very helpful with math. It's like having a personal tutor here with us.”
Alicia S, Co-op Member
I am so pleased with this curriculum! I especially love the fact that if a student is having trouble with a particular skill, it identifies the skill and the specific lesson that teaches that skill. It has the learner repeat that lesson/skill until she reaches mastery. So helpful! I will keep using Yourteacher.com. Thank you so much!!”
Christy F., Co-op Member
My son has been reviewing Algebra skills this summer. He loves the review and the instruction gives clarity. The tests at the end of each chapter ensures that he understands the material as he goes along. He prefers the online as opposed to the book for the immediate feedback. This freebie has been great to bring him up to speed and would definitely consider now ordering the course for the next year! I also want to have him go through SAT Prep which we have not even started yet and definitely will be getting prepared for the test.”
Debbie C., Co-op Member
My daughter has been using yourteacher.com for algebra 2 and she likes it very much. It's a great curriculum. She can go at her own pace and skip lessons she's comfortable with. It's like having a math tutor at home any time of day.”
Ozlem, Co-op Member
I think YourTeacher.com is a great resource! My sons have started the algebra I course and are working their way through it achieving mastery of each lesson. When they have completed it, I will definitely give them full credit for the course because using YourTeacher.com, they will have earned it and should have a good grasp of the subject. Love the pretests, lesson presentations and ease of use of the site.”
T. Johnson, Co-op Member
What a great product and what a great opportunity for our family! Thank you so much, Homeschool Buyers Co-op, for making it possible!”
NanaJudy, Co-op Member
Received a guest subscription for a couple of weeks. My 15 yo son ENJOYED using the site (easily distractable & he stayed focused) ... we are definitely adding this to our curriculum (ages: 15,13,10,6) for the '12-'13 school year. Here I was worried about "holes" in their education. Thinking your new nickname should be stop-leak. So grateful for the ease of use and thorough information presented in an easy-to-understand format.”
Mrs H, Co-op Member
My 12 year old son has constantly struggled with Math and I was looking for something to get him ready for pre-algebra in the fall. I cautiously signed up for the free YourTeacher.com program. Well, he loves it. We have been doing the pre-algebra program and he loves the format and is getting the answers right! The lessons are short and to the point and really get the concepts across. I am so pleased and his confidence is growing because he really gets it.”
dlwood83, Co-op Member
I signed up my 7th grader for Yourteacher.com, I have no regrets. She loves it. I like the short and to the point videos, the short lessons and written explanations etc. I myself learned a few things I have forgotten. Loving the 50% off right now. If I goes cheaper, even better. But I am looking into keeping it for next school year. Thanks”
Calditer Saunders, Co-op Member
easy to use and clear explanations of the algebra and geometry concepts. Could use a quick intro video on how the program works (in terms of the questions and explanation video).”
Utrecht1, Co-op Member
I signed myself up for the yourteacher.com freebie on the Homeschool Buyers Co-Op. I wanted to "test the waters" before making the leap into another math curriculum for my son. So far, I am loving the curriculum. I'm learning Algebra 1 all over again so that I will be better able to help my son in the fall. I love the ease of the online curriculum and the fact that I don't have to purchase books or CDs, it's all right there. It's like having a textbook and a teacher right there on the computer with you. What I like most is that your children won't have to wait for you to correct their work before they move on, they can check it on their own as they complete each problem. I know my son is really going to like it! I've even told my sister and friends about yourteacher.com Personally, I think it's the best online program on the market. Thanks!”
Karen L, Co-op Member
My son is using YourTeacher.com Geometry course during the summer to review and get ready for next school year. It has been great! He is reviewing Algebra from last year and learning important concepts in Geometry. It is easy to use and very organized. My son feels very comfortable and enjoys the lessons and quizzes. I told my sister and my nephew is using it too. The grading system is excellent: very organized and a great tool for teachers and parents because it gives details about the lesson and the student performance. I strongly recommend this program for anybody who wants to learn and have fun with math.”
Ivonne D., Co-op Member
I absolutely love yourteacher.com I like how you have option on grade levels, definitely would like to keep using it. I use it for college math, and love the experience, can't say enough about it.”
Diana T, Co-op Member
I took this free preview just to see if I'd like the site, but my child is too young yet to benefit from it. I think it's great and look forward to purchasing it when he gets advanced enough to use it.”
Pollynowva@yahoo.com, Co-op Member
As a visual learner, I was excited about all the videos in Your Teacher's Algebra One that I could watch. The teachers went in-depth and did a great job explaining how the answers to different problems come to be; they taught me new ways to solve math problems and led me through each lesson at a good, steady pace, allowing me adequate time to understand everything. I constantly found myself amazed and bursting with pride when I discovered I could understand a particular problem without any confusion involved. The self-tests and extra problems recap what you have learned in that particular lesson and prep you for other home works. In addition to all that, Your Teacher has introduced me to math in a fresh way--and it has helped me to look forward to math rather than dread it.”
Rachel Lin, Co-op Member and 8th grader
My 9th grade son was struggling to learn Algebra 2 but, when we started using Your Teacher.com the light bulb went on. He is enjoying math and understanding also. We have tried other online math services but nothing compares to this. We will be using this from now on. I can't wait to tell everyone I know.”
M. Lewis, Co-op Member
This is a great website teaching your child(ren) in bite size videos step-by-step Mathematics, Algebra I and II, Geometry, and much more!”
Darlene S., Co-op Member
Thank you for offering this program. I have used other programs, but this program seperates concepts and builds on concepts. When My daughter was doing her summer work, she did not understand multiplying mixed fractions. Instead of sitting through a whole lesson on multiplying fraction she just went to "multiplying mixed fractions" and was able to return to her workbook. She has always gotten frustrated in the past with having to sit through several lessons to get to the concept she needed to learn. Thank you for making a helpful math tutorial.”
Erin D., Co-op Member
I have looked at many, many math tutorial web sites, and I consider this to be one of the best. My high school age son is rapidly moving through Algebra 2, and asks to work on it every day! I am amazed, because he doesn't even like math. This is a wonderful product with easy to understand lessons and continuous feedback on completed lessons and problems. I will be happy to use this with my other children.”
Patty Duncan, Co-op Member
Algebra is my daughter's favorite subject. She was doing well with the online program I was using. However, with the videos from YourTeacher.com she is able to complete the lessons in less than half the time.”
AP, Co-op Member
We have found YourTeacher.com to be exactly what we needed. My daughters started Pre-Algebra in January this past year. Though they completed most of the lessons, I felt they needed more reinforcement. The format of the tests/lessons fits in perfectly with one of my goals, that is, to help them be more independent learners. The lessons are so helpful and clear. The pretests help to pinpoint problem areas and eliminated wasting time on areas they already know well. I was so thankful Homeschool Buyers Co-op offered this because I didn't know about it before.”
A. Allen, Co-op Member
Both of my high schoolers struggle with algebra and YourTeacher.com is such a godsend! They are finally understanding what they're doing and they're learning math vocabulary where it just stumped them before. They enjoy the challenge of taking the tests and they take each test until they score 100%. I was just going to use it for summer, but it's has proven itself to be something I could use a subscription to all year long. If I hear of anyone's students struggling with math, I will send them to YourTeacher.com in a heartbeat.”
Wendi W, Co-op Member
My daughter loves the live explanations. Just what I needed. Thanks!”
K. Hill, Co-op Member
We really enjoy using YourTeacher.com with our middle schooler. It's ease of use is great for our son and he particularly likes that he can pre-test if he wants to. The lessons are walked thru with a teacher on a whiteboard, extra problems are given if needed, printables are available, and it is easy to keep track of what has been completed as well as well as their scores.
This site is a great tool for parents with students at different levels, it allows for independent work with a tracking system, and is very easy to use. We are hoping to purchase this at the end of our current subscription.”
J. Koonce, Co-op Member
My 11 year old daughter now looks forward to her math lessons! YourTeacher.com allows her to go at her pace and she loves using the pc to listen to her lessons. The fact that she can also know right away how she's done on the self-tests is very rewarding as well.
We would highly recommend using YourTeacher.com for middle school or high school math!”
Heather Stanton, Co-op Member
My son is loving YourTeacher.com. He loves to work at his own pace and really likes he can skip ahead if he already knows the problem. We have used other programs and you have to follow each lesson before moving on. I have recommended it to my friends who homeschool and they are liking it too. Glad we came across it.”
DNixon, Co-op Member
Not only are the site and lessons simple and easy to use, for both teacher and student, they're perfect for everyone in the family. My husband even used the site to work on difficult concepts from his college level math courses. What a neat tool for any home school family!”
Mary A., Co-op Member
My 11 year old son has Asperger Syndrome and excels in Math. I have tried teaching him on my own but have never found a good fit for curriculum. I decided to try YourTeacher.com and it has been perfect. The lessons are short and to the point and the tests are not so long that he gets discouraged. I am so happy to have found something that seems to have been made for us! He has even been enjoying working over the summer. We plan to have Algebra I and II finished by August and will renew the subscription and finish all of the curriculum. I think this would even be appropriate as an aid for kids struggling in class.”
Emily S., Co-op Member
We have found yourteacher.com video/class very helpful. My children and I highly recommend it, the quick reply to quizes, video on new topics and wide range of skills to be learn make yt a big plus in learning math.”
Myrlande, Co-op Member
My mom got this program for me.. I LOVE IT. I think it is the best math program that i have done. With my old math u see program you could not do a lesson then test -- i like that part of it a lot.”
Priscilla, Co-op Member
My husband and daughter have used this program to help reinforce her Algebra skills. He is a mechanical engineer so he uses math ALL the time, but trying to help her with homework, he's founding out how approaches to Algebra have changed. YourTeacher.com has helped tremendously! We plan to use it all summer.”
T. Fladstol, Co-op Member
I love how they explain the lesson out easily to you. As your child is being quizzed, there's back and forth feedback with applause, and even when the child gets it wrong. There are so many lessons to choose from. It's a big help in areas that I as the teaching parent might struggle with.”
Jeannette V., Co-op Member
My son loved the notion of algebra, but I was looking for a way to fill in his pre-algebra skills. This program has been perfect. It is covering everything he needs to know and provides just enough practice without him getting bored.”
Cheryl, Co-op Member
What a find! For homeschooling Algebra I this year, we attempted to use a traditional text (which was written for a full-time math teacher in front of a classroom) and a video-based program (which focused more on Cartesian coordinates and graphing than equations and problem-solving), and then we found YourTeacher.com. What a relief for me and no more frustration for her!
My 9th grader is zooming through the parts with which she was already familiar, and the new information is so thoroughly explained that she is even able to navigate the more challenging material on her own. Granted, she is a motivated student and will re-watch the instructor and work more problems until she is certain that she has mastered the material before testing.
But the real benefit lies in the explanations, the why, of the problems. She can attempt a problem, and then if she misses it, the solution is presented step-by-step. The tests are brief (another plus) yet complete. The 12 chapters are broken down into about 10 lessons each, and the student works at his/her own pace. We've been at it for a little more than a month and she is now on chapter 5 (as noted above, she was familiar with some of the material), and we are working toward digesting as much as possible before the EOY annual test.
This is a real blessing for parents like me who majored in something other than math! The videos have helped me as well. And finding YT at a discount through Homeschool Buyer's Co-op actually cinched the deal for me, as I was thinking about another program. So glad it worked out as it did.”
C. Harrison, Charlotte, NC, Co-op Member
This is by far my favorite math curriculum for high school. I love the step by step instructions that make learning algebra so much easier. My family can go back and watch the video's over and over till they grasp the concept fully. Worth every penny!”
V.Kinderknecht, Co-op Member
We LOVE YourTeacher.com! My son was really struggling trying to enjoy the ALEKS math that we had signed him up for. Although it may be good for some students, my son didn't enjoy it at all. Math was very stressful for him. Since switching to YourTeacher.com, he has once again found his spark for math. He loves the fact that he can see the work demonstrated AND hear it being explained to him at the same time. He is understanding it much better and no longer has a strong desire to "punch the computer". I am very happy with the program as well. I also like that the site is matched up with many of the textbooks used in schools as well. My 11th grade son can come home, click on his textbook, plug in what page he is on and there is a lesson for him to help if he didn't quite get it at school. It is litererally like having a private tutor in our home. We would highly recommend this program to anybody, whether you are homeschooling or not, but it has been AWESOME for our homeschool curriculum! Try it for yourself, I doubt you'll be disappointed!”
Carol D., Co-op Member
I really like how the lessons are organized. It is really nice to have them in small units that are easy to study a few at a time. The explainations of concepts are easy to understand and well presented.”
Steve Gonzalez, Co-op Member
We finally have found a geometry program, after 6 other tries, that both my 14 yr old son and I can agree on. I like the extra practice, multiple tests and standards correlations! It makes it easy to figure out how he's doing, and how to help him. He likes the length and explanations.”
Louise J, Co-op Member
Our sons have been using YourTeacher.com to better understand high school math concepts for the past three years. We are hooked! I have to admit that math is not my area of expertise and as a homeschool mom, I believe we owe it to our kids to give them the very best materials we can to help them succeed. When I can't help them, YourTeacher.com can. Not only through their video lessons, which are excellent, but also through all the extras you get -- the extra problems and solutions, the further explanations, and once I even spoke to someone on the phone when one of my sons (and I) couldn't grasp a concept. They were so incredibly helpful. I will never use any other math product. We have three more years of homeschooling, and our math will all be done using YourTeacher.com.”
Megan Hoyt, Co-op Member
My son began using YourTeacher.com for Algebra last year. This year he is continuing with Geometry. He have used other "video" type programs but this seems to work the best for him. I think having the lessons explained by a real person is very helpful, there are plenty of practice problems and self-tests, which are cheat-proof, that's important, it holds him accountable. There are notes that he prints out on every lesson and extra practice if he needs it. I really like the website, it works well for us and we will continue using it.”
S. Henderson, Co-op Member
I have researched many websites for math instruction, and have found this website excellent. I highly recommend it.”
Mrs. Leafe, Co-op Member
We purchased YourTeacher as a supplement to our Algebra II homeschool curriculum and as prep for the upcoming PSAT practice exam. We could not be more pleased with the confidence it has given our son to feel like he can tackle any problem he encounters. Absolutely everything you could possibly need for high school Math and test prep is there. And it is the most thorough approach to practicing and receiving good feedback on Math concepts that I have seen.”
P Garlen, Co-op Member
Our 16 yr old son started it this fall. We had been using Saxon for a number of years (and it's a great program, also), but he needed more help then I could give. When I heard about YourTeacher.com, we checked it out and he loves it. YourTeacher gives him the visual help he needs and he can go back over a problem, if needed. The only change I would like to see is the date given for when lessons are done. We will probably continue to use YourTeacher through graduation, as our son really likes it.”
Patti E., Co-op Member
I am so glad that we purchased YourTeacher.com for our 12 year old in 8th grade. Before we purchased it, he found math very challenging. Right now, he cannot wait to log-on to his computer to go to YourTeacher.com. His math grade has improved tremendously. I am so grateful to Homeschool Buyers Co-op for making this available to us and at such a reasonable price. Thank you.”
Julie B., Co-op Member
YourTeacher.com is wonderful! The lessons are clear and concise. Having done well in Geometry and Algebra II in high school, I thought I would have no trouble teaching my son these subjects. However, we were both extremely frustrated. I could not have taught my son Geometry or Algebra II without YourTeacher.com. I only wish it continued for even higher math courses! I have told many of my homeschooling friends how great the program is.”
Mary W., Co-op Member
I am VERY happy with Yourteacher.com. My daughter is doing very well in her math thanks to this online program. What I like most about it, is that it makes the student get the daily work correct before they can move on to the next lesson. She's got to learn the concept. I also like that the tests are given by the parent rather than online. This shows me how much of the information she retained. I highly recommend Yourteacher.com to any high school student!”
Debby, Co-op Member
I spent an enormous amount of time trying to find the most comprehensive, well-thought out math tutoring website. I was thrilled when I finally found this site, as the tutorials are well-organized and taught at a pace that my middle school child can follow along with. The pre-test, the awesome Help windows and the practice questions all help to make this site a true gem.”
Kelly F., Co-op Member
We have used several math curriculums over the past years and my son feels like this one is the best yet. It was also very helpful in his study for the College Math CLEP.”
Jan R., Co-op Member
As a teacher and mother, I must admit that math is not my forte, but, I have come to the place where I must accept that math is a part of our world and if we're going to gain any mastery we must approach it like learning a foreign language. So in order to help my son move through the curriculum in a positive light, we are working YourTeacher.com together, and loving it! We really like the direct method of instruction in the videos, the ability to apply the lessons in the practice problems/extra problems, and move on to the self tests. The only element I would add if on were on the YourTeach.com program design team, would be to add more practice problem worksheets per lesson. This would be a helpful option, to allow all the students the opportunity for mastery in each lesson area, hence, greater confidence. We are just completing Algebra I (MD/HS), and look forward to moving on to Geometry this next year!”
Chris F., Co-op Member
My 9th grader is thrilled to be using YourTeacher.com for Geometry lessons. She likes seeing a real person teaching the lesson, as opposed to just hearing someone teach and/or just seeing formulas /writing appear on the screen. She has always done well in math, but seems to have a renewed interest in it now that a real teacher, with knowledge of the subject, is teaching the lesson. She likes YourTeacher so much that she has asked if she could complete Algebra 2 over the summer. I don't know if that's a possibility, but I would hate to discourage her.
We have recommended using YourTeacher to members of our home school group and others who are just thinking about home schooling. We are very happy with the product and will use it again when the next child enters high school.”
Margaret R., Co-op Member
My daughter began using YourTeacher.com several months ago and loves it. Finally, after using several books and math computer programs she says she understands the explanations. She responds well to the format of having the "teacher standing in front of the room".”
Linda J., Co-op Member
YourTeacher.com is an absolute answer to prayer. It could not be more perfect for my daughter. The lessons are short and specific. There are so many different ways to learn the material, I don't know how anyone could not "get it". She went from a struggling D to an A - and I think the biggest factor is the short video presentation of each lesson. THANK YOU for being there for us!”
E. LaCoy, Co-op Member
We have been very pleased with these Algebra lessons. The video tutors are easy to understand and help my student when I may not be available to answer questions immediately. I am so glad we found this thanks to the Co-op.”
P Anderson, Co-op Member
This is the best homeschool purchase I have ever made. An outstanding program, YourTeacher.com provides a comprehensive mathematics education, including lecture, demonstration, evaluation, and tutoring, all with the convenience of home scheduling. My math-hating student loves this program and is doing excellent work with it! Her progress since purchasing the program is very gratifying, and I will stick with YourTeacher.com for the future and recommend it with enthusiasm!”
Lynda S, Co-op Member
Our daughter has been enjoying YourTeacher.com better than her former program. She says it is easier to understand because they give more explanation, more help and the student has the option to show the answer or the complete method of how they got the answer. She likes that they give extra probes and hints as well without giving the complete answer.
We would definitely recommend Teacher.com to others. Our daughter no longer procrastinates about Math but hops on the computer to do her lessons - that in itself makes Teacher.com worth it to us!”
Robert.G., Co-op Member
The free trial period is what got us to look at YourTeacher.com. I have paid for programs and curriculum in the past to only find out we do not like them and have to fight with my daughter the whole time to do her assignments. This is the first time she has enjoyed a computer math program or curriculum in two years. We do not fight anymore. She actually is happy and voluntarily does her math work.
The lessons are broken down into bite size bits so you move along one piece at a time and build on your knowledge from the previous lesson. YourTeacher has the perfect balance of instruction, practice, deep thought (extra practice)and testing. The program is easy to use and understand. It incorprates the perfect amount of computer work with actual pencil & paper writing. YourTeacher tracks grades so I don't have to. Being internet based, I did not have to load any programs into my computer. This saved me from using up memory in my laptop. I don't have to look for, run or install any updates to the program. We can see clearly where the lessons will be going for the rest of her schooling. She is no longer worried about what is ahead. She will be able to get ready for her SAT and ACT all from this same site. The site is very user friendly. We both feel comfortable with and understand the lessons on YourTeacher.com.
We have posted reviews of the site on our local homeschool groups websites. After having spent a couple of years searching for a good math curriculum, we wanted to share what we found with the Homeschool Buyers Co-op and YourTeacher sites. As a homeschool parent, I appreciate when others share info about curriculum. Ex: Did it work, what did they like or not like. I was so pleased with the results of using YourTeacher that I gladly told everyone. I was also very pleased with the discount I got by using Homeschool Buyers Co-op. I will continue to use them both and when my son (9) is ready for YourTeacher, I will start him on that also. Thank you for a great discount and a GREAT product.”
Margaret O'Dell, Co-op Member
We are very happy with YourTeacher.com so far. My son (12) likes the variety of teaching methods - video, practice, written explanation, and tests. He says it is very useful if he is "not getting it" through one explanation to be able to see it presented in a different way. The instructors don't rush through the presentation as in a comparable product that we demoed. I have shared with other homeschooling families how much we like this.”
L. Stewart, Co-op Member
I purchased your teacher.com for our children.Our oldest son used it more than the younger. He was very pleased with the idea of going to the page with problem which allowed him to hear someone else explain the concept. When the free trail period ended he stated it would benefit him therefore commited to pay for the subscription. He's really enjoying it. It also saves us money, by enrolling in this program, because we don't have to pay for additional tutoring. This product is wonderful in that it has updated text books used, with real teachers explaining information in very simplified manner. We have informed others of this program and will continue to use it as a supplement.”
J. Curtiss, Co-op Member
My 16 year-old daughter has been using the program for several weeks. So far, it has proven to be the best math curriculum we have ever tried. I love how easy it is to implement, in that nothing is required of me as a parent. It is completely self-instructional, and keeps up with her grades and lessons completed etc. For the first time ever, my daughter looks forward to doing her math and chooses to do it before any of her other subjects. We love how organized and simple the lesson format is. She actually feels like she is learning something every day with every lesson, and we expect that her ACT scores will continue to rise using this program. We have recommended Yourteacher.com to several friends and will continue to do so.”
Julie T., Co-op Member
During our family's 2nd year using YourTeacher.com, we are again pleased with the academic instruction, as well as the ease with which I (Mom) can keep up with each student's progress. I also appreciate that I DON'T have to remember the details of applying the Quadratic Formula or finding multiple variables or graphing equations or some formula that was crystal clear for me nearly 30 years ago!! We've been homeschooling for 16 years, and this has been the best middle/high school math option we've ever used! (How did I ever manage it before?)!”
Lynne H., Co-op Member
My son can take the lessons any time he needs . Every unit has very clear explanation which makes user easy to understand. By using this site allow me to have the time I need to do my house chores.”
Rita R., Co-op Member
My daughter is in the 9th grade. We signed up for free lessons this summer. She liked it so well that we signed up for a 1 year subscription. She says that "geometry is challenging." It is also easier to understand when presented by your teachers. This is great for me as a parent. I have a hard time with math. I never took geometry. I love your product! I will tell others how much we like it.”
Holly J., co-op member
Your teacher has been a blessing for us my son likes it that he can watch the videos and do the extra problems and he's done. I like it because I know he's getting the instruction he needs in an interesting and cost effective way. I have recommended the site to all my home school friends.”
Debby, Co-op Member
My 9th grader has been using YourTeacher.com for 3 years. She started with Pre-Alg. and now is in Geometry. It is a great program and since Im not much of a math mom. I love the way the program teaches the subject.You listen to the videos, print off the extra problems and notes and take the quiz after. Do the extra problems if help is needed. Since the quiz is online, I have her write the problems the backside of the notes and keep everything in a 3ring binder. If your student is advanced, you can move on to the next level without buying a new program. You get one year, so you can work in the summer if you want. I will you this program all the way to college math. I have tried many programs and this is the best.”

We used Saxon math and decided we needed a change. As an 8th grade student we wanted to encourage our son to do more independent learning. This program has fit perfectly. My son has some learning disabilities and having the "teacher" explain with a video and then be able to walk through the problems so he can see each step is wonderful. Sometimes "it is not the message but the messenger". This program delivers the message from someone other than "mom". My son loves this and is doing well. He works independantly and I can give him additional problems to ensure he really got the concept. I also like that I can print the notes for each lesson and have them for review. Thanks for this really good program. You have made Math user friendly!!”

The instruction given by YourTeacher.com has been very concise and easy to understand. I used the trial subscription first, and then bought the membership because I was happy with the success my son experienced with the Algebra course. The course instructor gives step by step directions with plenty of practice problems to ensure comprehension. And I also appreciate that the lesson grades are recorded on the computer and easy to keep track of student progress. Thank you for this wonderful product and for special pricing!”

This math tutorial subscription is wonderful! It gives the student lessons by a real human teacher. Students can go back and re-play lessons as many times as needed. There are unlimited practice problems, post-lesson tests, and progress reporting all at your fingertips. I love that there are preps for every standardized test imaginable, plus prep outlines for entrance tests to virtually any university! This has made my job easier not only in teaching the material, but making sure that I am on track for my son's grade level and preparing him for various standardized tests.”

My son was having a really tough time understanding geometry but with the organized videos, step by step instructions, and example problems, he was able to grasp the concepts very well. Yourteacher.com has made a huge difference in his grades!!!”

My seventh grader has been a very reluctant math student. Online curricula have kept her interest more than texts, but some that we tried were not comprehensive enough for her to develop a full understanding. YourTeacher.com changed all of that. Finally we have a program that keeps her interest and covers the topic in full enough detail for her to gain mastery.
YourTeacher.com doesn't look as interesting or valuable at first glance as some of the other programs in the line up here, but it is a tremendous value. There are many semesters of math here from middle school all the way up.
My seventh grader has finally hit her stride with math thanks to YourTeacher.com. It is no longer a struggle to get her to do the work, and it is wonderful to see her confidence blossoming as she progresses through the modules. We are sure to be subscribers for a long time.”

The YourTeacher.com Algebra I lessons are clear and understandable. My son found the self-tests to be good, although sometimes frustrating, as he had to start all over again on the 5-question "test" each time he went back to the lesson for help. Sometimes he was on the last question when that happened. The student does get 10 tries for the self-tests, though. This program provides more practice on each lesson's "new skill" than Teaching Textbooks does, and it also tends to explain it more quickly than TT. However, there is little, if any, practice of previously-learned skills, which was disappointing. I had hoped to use this program alongside of Teaching Textbooks, but the skills are presented in a different order, and the terminology is completely different, so I can't understand how to coordinate the two programs. If you just want to use this alone, it is good, but you also do not have a text book to refer to for instruction in the skill. You can go back to the lessons again for help, however. I would love to be able to combine this program with Teaching Textbooks!”

My two teenagers LOVE this program. It's easy to follow and they can each move at their own pace. I love it because they can use it on their own. It lets them know if they are ready to move on to the next level. We will be using it again this year. :)”

YourTeacher curriculum has been a blessing from God for our family! Math had previously taken 4 hrs. a day, and I still had two other children to homeschool. YourTeacher does the teaching (instead of me having to figure out how to do the problems, before I can teach them to my child) and then it grades it as well! Now math only takes 30-45 min. My son is loving it, and he has, by far, surpassed me in Algebra. For moms like me, who feel less than adequate in algebra, this may just be for you! It is a little expensive (for us) but the time it has saved me has been invaluable. We will continue using YourTeacher. We have no desire to return to our previous curriculum.”

I have been very happy with our decision to have the kids use YourTeacher.com for their math this year. YouTeacher offers math instruction all the way through Calculus. One of the other online math programs I had considered didn't offer geometry, so we would have had to switch to some other program right in the middle. YourTeacher lessons are very clear and offered in small bites with practice in each "bite" before moving on to the next step. Each day has a small test to show if the kids got the lesson. Also, you can print out extra practice beyond what's on the computer lesson. My extremely math phobic daughter actually asks to do her math and tells me how easy it is. My math loving son really enjoys the lessons too. The instruction is dry (the teachers always look sad!), but my kids don't seem bothered by this one bit. I appreciate that one subscription allows you to jump to any lesson in any level of math so I can have the kids review any concept they may have missed in a previous year's math. I also love that doing math online allows us to travel for extended periods during the school year without having to haul books with us. There is always a computer available at grandpa's house or at an internet cafe somewhere. YourTeacher.com has been a terrific choice for us.”

Have an algebra student who hates math, and has trouble learning from a book? So did I!! But since we found YourTeacher.com, that all changed....Bobby LOVES it!!”
Tracy Chard, Co-op Member
YourTeacher.com was an excellent resource for homeschooling my son, especially in Algebra and Geometry, where my skills, (and memory) on these subjects, sometimes lacked the necessary vocabulary to explain more difficult concepts. So easy to use, for both of us, we just click on a subject or specific topic, then view video explanations / demonstrations which are thorough and understandable. Thank you so much for this great, useful tool to our education!”

This program was my salvation as far as Alegbra is concerned. I have suffered with Algebra for years. I needed this to complete my degree. After failing for a third time, I began to think I couldn't master this subject.
After seeing some of the Yourteacher.com videos on Youtube I realized these videos helped me instantly. I was thrilled. I searched for the best deal and found a special deal on Homeschool Buyers Co-op with a large discount. I ordered and waited to get my access. It couldn't get here fast enough, as I was suffering for the first week without the videos. Once I got the videos I became an "A" student, and I finished the class with an "A". I now have a good grasp on this material.
Thanks so much to the Yourteacher.com team!”

What a great year we had with this math program. We did Pre-Algebra this year with YourTeacher.com. This program was recommended by Mammoth Math and by Cathy Duffy. I was thrilled to see it offered through Homeschool Buyers Co-op. I was impressed that each lesson was thoroughly taught using careful and precise wording so as not to confuse the student. After years of spiral programs I found it extremely refreshing to spend time on one set of skills per chapter building in complexity as we went. Going into this year my kids were burnt out with math. Now I feel like they have mastered Pre-Algebra and feel better about the subject in general.”
Martha F., Co-op Member
Fabulous! The teachers are appropriately slow in speaking and thorough, There is endless opportunity to practice, both on-line and available to be printed. Covers pre-algebra thru college algebra, geometry, ACT and SAT and Clep practice tests. The student can switch between subjects at no additional cost. Email help is available if needed.”
Susan, Co-op Member
My 12 year old loves math and loves Teacher.com. He used it this past year for Pre-Algebra and Algebra I, completely independently, with great success. The teachers are engaging, the lessons clear and easy to follow. My son really likes that if he has mastered a concept, he can choose to move on but can also choose to do more practice when needed. My only criticism is that there's no easy way to print completed assignments and tests. In my opinion, Teacher.com is a great deal. We will use it again next year.”
Laura H., Co-op Member
Thank you so much for including YourTeacher.com among your group buys. My child thanked me for assigning the lessons as reinforcements. The presentation of the material aligns perfectly with his visual hands-on learner's learning style. Proud of having earned an 'A' on the test, he knows now the possibility of exceeding his preconceived limitations. Thank you especially for the time and effort you give in negotiating these wonderful opportunities for homeschooling families; making them not only accessible but affordable as well.”

I am a homeschooler, and we are using yourteacher.com to supplement my daughter's Geometry lessons. It's been a great help, thanks!”

I am a home-school parent and also write a blog for home-schooling. I came across your site researching good on-line sites for home-schoolers... I wrote up a blog regarding your site, and plan on writing a follow-up in about a month. So far, I am just so impressed with what you offer.”
Lisa E., January '08
I have been searching for exactly this type of resource for some time. I was a very good math student, but when "mom is teaching you" sometimes kids just don't listen. We had worked on one chapter, 8 lessons, for 5 weeks with very little results. After one day using your program at yourteacher.com, my son understood enough to pass his chapter test. He passed with an 83%, and that is up from the 50% or less before your program. Thank you!”
Jennifer, January '08
I have to tell you I love your lessons so far. I homeschool my children and my daughter was not understanding “multiplying fractions” based on the way the book was teaching it, and I couldn't explain it properly. But as soon as she saw your lesson on this she got it immediately. I am using your lessons to help with all the math lessons that my children aren't quite getting now. Thank you so very much for providing these types of visual lessons online.”
Cherie, Feburary '08
I am using it for homeschooling. I love it! Thank you for offering it.”
Melanie, April '08
I wish I had found this website first.Theother math websites did not help as much as this one does. I will certainly recommend this website to others as the best website for math on the Internet!”
Shirley, April '08
My two teenagers are home-schooled, and they were both taking their math class from a teacher that did not know how to teach. They were VERY frustrated and failing. As a last ditch effort I thought, "What the heck? Maybe I will get lucky and find something they can use". I typed in my search, and an "OH WOW!", "ALRIGHT!", and ... we were set. Now, my kids can't wait to get to the computer and get to math. How cool is that?!WE LOVE YOUR PROGRAM! By the way, you might like to know what my daughter said about you....."I really love the way he goes step by step. I've always had trouble with this, but now I get it! He makes it easy." From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for a fabulous program! I will be passing your site on to the other families in our group.”
Shawna-Rae, April '08
I just HAD to write and tell you that your website is "fantastic". I have learned more Algebra in these last few weeks than I can remember. My textbook does not even compare to your website. I like the fact that with each video explanation, each "step" is repeated - so that the information is drilled into my head. This helps me remember the information the next time around. I have FINALLY stopped sweating Algebra and am so proud of myself that I can do this and am actually enjoying it! I will continue to spread the word.”
Lisa, February, '08
Today was my son's first day of home schooling after being pulled out of public school (10th grade) and we were able to jump right in with a review of material he has already covered this year in Geometry. I can tell just from what we've done so far that your site is going to be an absolute godsend for us. It provides a teacher in our home for a subject that is not my strong suit. Thank you so much for making something like this available to the home school community.”
