Thinkwell Homeschool Review

I have been homeschooling my boys for 12 years.  I will be graduating my oldest son this year which is really bittersweet.  On one hand, I want to see him succeed and walk the path God has planned for him.  On the other hand, it is hard to imagine not being with him everyday helping him learn and grow.

One resource that I have found particularly helpful in high school is Thinkwell Homeschool.  We actually have used Thinkwell for both middle school and high school math.  The curriculum is all online.  Material is delivered via video instruction which is really rather entertaining at times.  There are questions that need to be worked through with every lesson as well as quizzes, practice tests, and unit tests.  There are other resources available such as worksheets, lesson planning, and additional support from Thinkwell.

I am not a math person, and I have learned so much watching Professor Berger.  Professor Berger is a college math professor, but he has a way of explaining the concepts in an easy-to-understand manner.  He uses props and examples as he writes things out sort of Kahn Academy style (although you get to see him in the videos).  I have one boy who loves math, and one who is glad that being forced to take math classes has come to an end.  I must say that Thinkwell has been instrumental to the success of both my boys.  My evidence: my oldest was able to take a college level math class and pass it!

So this is a bit of a “plug” for Thinkwell.  If you are a homeschooler and interested in  exploring Thinkwell as an option for your own math courses, here is a link which will provide you with a 15% discount:
