Time4Learning Review

Can you believe that I'm on my 3rd year of home school?

My oldest has been a reluctant student and really drags his feet in reading but does fairly well in Math and Science.

He is very computer oriented and a visual learner so I was looking for a program that he could do online and that I could supplement with extra courses, like bible.

I came across and he LOVES it!  He is getting so much better about doing his lessons.

I am still learning how to do things like how to set up a schedule to keep him moving.  It is a little confusing to me but I am going to make an even bigger effort to figure it out.

The games that he gets to do help him learn without being a worksheet. He can take a fidget break between lessons.  I can go back to his quizzes and see how he did and the supplement it with a worksheet or other game (pinterest and online home school sources have a lot of great ideas!)

I am able to have him work on 1st grade language arts and 2nd grade math.

I would recommend it to the mom who has a full house and needs an affordable home school option.

I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning is an online educational program that can be used in many ways including as a homeschooling curriculum or afterschool tutorial.

  1. We've been using Time4Learning several years now and my daughter still loves it! I love that she can work on different grade levels for each subject. My daughter is actually better at Language Arts than math. Boys tend to be better at math. ;)

    I don't use the scheduler. She's learned to move from one lesson to the next. Depending on how long the lesson is or how difficult it is, she'll do one or two a day for each subject. I like her to take a break every 45 minutes or so....though sometimes she'd like to just keep going. lol. School is never a fuss. I wish I'd had it for my older kids when they were little.

    Not sure if you know that some of the lessons have worksheets. When you go into the parent login, it'll show you which lessons have worksheets.
    I've had to call the staff at Time4learning a couple of times with questions and they've been very kind and helpful. So don't hesitate to do that if you feel you need help in figuring anything out as you're trying to navigate the site. :)

    Great review!! Thanks!
