Time4Learning Review

Time4Learning Review

Hi, my name is Shawna and I am a mother of 4. My two oldest children are now adults, and my two youngest are 8 year old twins who are currently being home-schooled using Time4Learning as a main source of curriculum.

This is our second year of schooling at home. Our children started out in the public school system in Pre-K, and remained within that school system until first grade. At the end of first grade we decided that our children needed a more individualized education. During summer break at the end of first grade, we researched our options for schooling our children at home. After finding and trying (unsuccessfully) an online public school, we came across Time4Learning and we decided to give it a try.

Since I have twin boys who learn at significantly different speeds (One of the boys has a diagnosis of Autism and Developmental Delay), I needed a program that would allow me to address each child’s needs separately while at the same time using the same program for both boys. Time4Learning allows me to advance a grade, or go back a grade for each individual subject and for each individual child. This is especially helpful to keep my advanced student from growing bored with his work, while allowing my delayed student to work at his own pace. I think my favorite part of the Time4Learning program is the level of flexibility it has to offer!
The lessons within the Time4Learning program keep both of my boys entertained and engaged. Each child has their own favorite lessons, and they each love to see their preferred lessons on the weekly lesson plan. It gives them something to look forward to each week. I love to see the boys having FUN while learning and I honestly believe the fun mixed in with the learning is what leads to the level of success my boys have had with this program.

The program also contains a “Parents Tools” and a “My Students” section that makes my job as a “teacher” super easy! The Parents Tools section includes Many How-To videos that were quite helpful when we were new to the program. I still refer back to the videos now and again, and I always learn something new! Within the Parents Tools section are also Resources to use along with the lessons. All in one place for easy access. The My Students Section allows me to View Reports, Print Membership Letters, and more!

If I could change one thing about Time4Learning it would be to add more to the Science and Social Studies Curriculum. I have found though that I am able to supplement the Science and Social Studies Units with free online materials through various websites though, which adds to the curriculum already in place.

I can say without a doubt that we made the right choice when we chose Time4Learning. I hope that this review has been helpful to you in making YOUR decision easier. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

Please Note:
As a member of Time4Learning, I have been asked to review their online education program and share my experiences. While I was compensated, this review was not written or edited by Time4Learning and my opinion is entirely my own. Write your own curriculum review or learn how to use their curriculum for homeschoolafter school study or summer learning.
Thank you.
