Homeschooling Mom Reviews "1st - 7th Grade Math Tutor"
Review By: G. Lindsey
I was hesitant as I stuck in the DVD for the first time. Should I watch it by myself? Or have the kids watch it with me? I wondered if watching someone teach math (step-by-step) would be too boring for my 8 and 9 year old to handle. I decided to have them sit down with me, figuring they would make it through a few minutes and then run off for me to finish by myself. I hit play and was blown away by not only the program but by my kids reaction to it.
I like how the tutor speaks clearly and slowly without being intimating or boring. He explains each problem thoroughly, going over concepts to insure the viewer understands it before moving on. The picture is crisp and focuses close-up on the board the tutor uses to work out each problem.
What most surprised me about the DVD was that is not only held my interest, but my kids as well. About 2 minutes in, my son asked to pause the program so he could grab a piece of paper and work along. My rambunctious 8 year old son actually wanted to do math work outside of math time. Amazing!
The 1st-7th Grade DVD is 7 hours long and covers subjects like adding/subtracting multiple digits, multiplication, diving with and without remainders, adding/subtracting, multiplying/ dividing fractions, decimals, percents and ratios (for a total of 20 sections/lessons all together).
Math Tutor DVD is my new favorite math resource and I highly encourage anyone with a child struggling in math to consider purchasing one of these very affordable DVD's. These DVD's make teaching and learning math easy. The content included for the price is unbeatable and unlike hiring a "real" tutor, the DVD can be played over again and again.
