Comment: We have been homeschooling now for eight years. We just completed our first full year using time4learning.com. As a mom and teacher I love everything about t4l. It is so easy to track the completion of lessons and automatic grading is great. The t4l customer support is wonderful to work with. The kids quickly figured out how to navigate and then they were pretty much independent with their work. The audio/visual has been a huge help even for my seventh grader. We purchase the 12 month plan at a greater discount than the monthly plan. The price is still way below if we had to purchase a computer/online based program!

Comment: Used for 5+ years. 1st-8th grade and new high school level (11th). Personally, Time4Learning helped me with the fears I had about homeschooling those first couple of years. I used to help fill in the gaps with my oldest after he was pulled from 5th grade in the public school system. Some of the subjects he had a lot of gaps in what he knew either from the fact that we had moved around 3 times before that or that the school system had one pace and it was most times too fast for him to master some techniques or concepts. With my youngest who was considered average in Kindergarten he allowed him to jump ahead in LA and math as he loved those subjects. The customer service is very helpful and courteous, as well. Overall, it is something I have recommended to anyone who has pulled their kiddos out of the school system. It allows for learning to be fun again!
Comment: Wonderful resource when I first pulled my child from public school. The Language Arts and Extensions are wonderful. However, the math did not work for my child. The graphics and fast talking were not the same quality as the Language Arts. We are still using it right now. I pick his math lessons to correspond to his other curriculum. In that regard, the math portion is sufficient as a supplement.
Comment: We used time4learning for about 6 months. It was a good transition from deschooling but we outgrew it. Over time I realized the math wasn't sticking and we tried something else. It was too expensive to use it just for language arts. We eventually found something else less intensive and more direct for language arts that worked for us.
