“Thank you TabletClass for all your help. My son has always struggled in math. Beginning in second grade, numbers are just another foreign language to him. Unlike so many parents out there who struggle teaching high levels of math due to difficulty, I am the opposite. Math is like an extension to my arm, yet teaching it to a student who is struggling immensely is often nerve wracking to say the least. With the help of TabletClass we finally have that “Ahh ha” clicking moment when it all makes sense. My son is currently in TabletClass’ PreAlgebra class after already taking PreAlgebra before. It is such a great moment when a parent can see a light turn on and it all makes sense again. I am grateful for the gifts this program has given us.”

“I started homeschooling my son in 5th grade at the age of 11 for several reasons, one being lack of being challenged in math in the public school system. We used a different math program the first year and I found he still needed to be further ahead and needed an instructor to walk him through it instead of reading the directions in a book and me trying to interpret them. Then we found TabletClass! He is enrolled in PreAlgebra this year at the age of 12 and really loves it. TabletClass gives clear and precise instruction that makes it easy to understand. Practice for the concepts are practical and not excessive “busy work.” Their support is wonderful as well with any questions I’ve sent being quickly responded to. I would highly recommend this program to any homeschool family looking for a great Algebra course!”

“Loving Tablet Class. As a mom, I don’t have to worry if I am teaching algebra correctly which means I can focus on my younger daughter while my son is being taught by John. Hands off for me!”

“We have tried many home school curricula and TabletClass is our favorite one! It doesn’t take a long time to do and my daughter is learning and retaining the information wonderfully! John really loves to teach and is able to break things down to a level that every student can follow. We have recommended TabletClass to all our friends, home schoolers or not. We just love it, it the best thing we could of done for our daughter!”

“TabletClass has really been a great addition to our home school. As a Mom that is “math challenged” this program really takes the pressure off of me to be able to teach my daughter algebra. This program lends itself to independent study which is important as I have 7 children needing my attention during the day. My daughter has been able to go back and review the videos as many times as she needs to get the concept down and this has been another great aspect of TabletClass. John has been so very helpful and just an email away to answer any questions I have. I will be using this with all my children in the future.”

“I just wanted to share our praises for your website. We are the "College By Twelve" family and TabletClass.com fits in with our accelerated/childled method of getting our kids into college by the age of twelve. My 10 year old has finished Algebra 1 and is waiting for the Algebra 2 course to start. Online learning is the best way to teach kids who are selfmotivated. We have had GREAT results in helping our 9 kids excel in Mathematics and TabletClass is exactly what we needed to make my workload as a mom easier. Blessings!”

“Last year was our family’s first year to use your TabletClass.com as our homeschool math curriculum. My three kids were so pleased. One even said, “I love math!” for the first time in her life. My youngest was doing so well that he actually did both PreAlgebra and Algebra in one year! So this year I have two needing Geometry and one needing Algebra II. Thanks for your help on this!”
