    Default Enrichment Use

    I have two children in parochial schools but both struggle since the school is very hard and competitive. We had the children in the SCORE centers where they had computers for online tutoring. We paid alot $35/hour. There was some supervision mostly reviewing how much time they had done.

    I have just tried Time4Learning and found that the software is actually better than the materials at the SCORE center. It's more convenient since I don't have to drive. And I'm now spending for two kids, $35/month for unlimited use versus $330 / month.

    I'm thinking of adding a tutor to come by weekly and review their work (they don't respond that well to my involvement).

    Anybody have experience with this mixed approach? Also, the SCORE center forced us to follow their routine curriculum but with Time4Learning, now that they have the lesson plans online, we are planning it ourselves to cover their areas of weakness.

    Hi,

    Have you decided on getting the tutor? You can always check on their progress through the program. Check it out in the Hints section, if you haven't already done so. I really like that the lessons plans are up too.

    Have you seen the Teacher Resource Guides/Answer Key? It's up now and it's really nice.

    Switching to T4L really saved you a lot. Who knows, it may be all the help they needed and you won't have to get that tutor

    I like Time4Learning much better than my daughter's school. At school, she seems to have a problem with over socializing. So, I think she isn't paying full attention.

    And, school will just keep going with the curriculum even if she doesn't understand it. With Time4learning, she can't move on until she masters the area. And if she masters it right away, there is little need to waste much more time on it. I review all of her quizes and tests, so I can spend time with her on the areas in which she is having trouble.

    I agree jzk, at school they will just keep on going, regardless if the child does well or not. I think I like this feature the most, the fact that we can go at our own pace and re-do lessons.

    If my son doesn't seem to grasp it the first time, I can take him over those lessons again, and use the resources as well.
