Reviews of Tabletclass math curriculum
Your situation: I barely passed Geometry in High School and so could not help my child in this subject. We started tabletclass.com and success! I watch the math videos too and am amazed that I am learning, understanding, and enjoying Geometry. My child is learning and more importantly is comprehending and retaining Geometry concepts. We both love it.
Why you liked/didn't like the curriculum: I like the mobility and flexibility of this math program.

We put daughter in pre-algebra in 6th grade in public school (in hindsight--prematurely). I had a gut feeling she wasn't understanding it, but teacher said all was fine and grades were OK. In algebra in 7th grade, we realized she did not comprehend basics. On our initiative (not the teacher's) we moved her back to pre-algebra. She received A's. Began homeschooling in 8th grade. One month into algebra realized she didn't comprehend basics. She also hated math and felt incompetent in that subject. Started her on TabletClass pre-algebra (yes, her third year of pre-algebra, which added to her feelings of incompetence). She began to experience success and competency in math. She will never "love" math, but no longer hates it. Algebra this year is going well; she is a B student. More importantly, she is demonstrating a comprehension of algabraic concepts.
Why you liked/didn't like the curriculum: Quick response to email questions and comments. The owner called me on the phone more than once to answer my questions.
My daughter views lessons on the computer at her pace. I'm a resource not the teacher. (Avoids power struggles in a subject I enjoy and she tolerates).
I've had my daughter email questions and she has received quick responses.
My daughter has learned math concepts and how to apply them.
Any other helpful hints: High speed internet important to view online videos.
