A+ Math Tutor Software is a low-cost mathematics help program, most ideal for homeschoolers, but all can benefit. The curriculum is a hands-on Internet math software, designed for grades 1-6, plus pre-Algebra and Algebra 1.

- Slightly more advanced than average curriculum
- Somewhat similar to Khan Academy
Although it is primarily online, you have the option to print worksheets for on-the-go activities. And, you can add scores for offline math work. The lesson formats reminded me of Khan Academy, which is primarily for older grades. It contains a detailed video explaining the problems, and it contains a video for every single “skill”, so too much isn’t packed into one lesson.
After taking a detailed and thorough mini-test on multiple (10+ different categories), students are given a detailed and personalized lesson plan. Being primarily on computer, students can be independent, and it doesn’t require constant supervision. It has answers right away, and automatically grades and provides feedback and tutorials for problems.
When the curriculum says “strong foundation” – they aren’t kidding. I found this curriculum to be quite advanced compared to many other curriculums. However, of course, you can always go a grade lower or so. And, with individualized lesson plans, it really shouldn’t matter.
I think perhaps the biggest perk is the customer service, run by the owner and founder, Vinod. From others’ reviews and my own personal chat with him prior of this review, and I can definitely say their customer service beats our 2 hour long struggle with Comcast’s service this morning. Vinod is quite passionate about it, and is happy to answer any questions.
