I love Time for learning, I was desperate for a quick curriculum for my daughter and found Time4Learning! What a life savior. Here's my story. My daughter Samantha was Adopted late in life and she struggled in school and with peer pressure. She struggled with abandonment issues. By age 16 she had flunked 2 of her 9 th grade regents and was failing 3 of her 10 th grade subjects. She was not attending school and had a 32 average. She was getting in trouble and was not on course to pass the 10 th grade or to lgraduate. We were desperate and pulled her out of school. We used time for learning for her 10 th grade year but she completed many classes 9-10& 11 th during the year and she was able to them take the NYS TASC test and passed it the first time. Samantha was so frustrated with public school she was not attending and was flunking out. She didn't fit in, she felt useless. There is no way she would have been successful taking the test had she not of spent the year learning using time for learning. We included a business curriculum with her home schooling. Sam started her own Facebook business page and her own business. She made a lot of sales during the year selling crochet hats, mittens, blankets, and tons of other items. She still has the business which is now 2 years old. Samantha is enrolled in college full time now, she is doing really well and has completed a semester. Her self esteem has flourished and she is becoming a responsible adult. I would not of been able to find all the books and curriculums she needed mid year. I signed up for time for learning on a Friday and she literally started full time on Tuesday. Everything was easy, we even got approval for her to home school the first try. Everything we did was approved the first time New York State is not an easy state to home school in and out school is one of the hardest.
We are actually pulling our 6 th grader out this year and homeschooling her and a. Friends 4 and 5 th graders together and we will be using time4 learning for their core classes.
Thank you time for learning for everything. Cassie Clipston

I love how interactive this homeschool program is! It's absolutely wonderful for visual learners, keeps their attention, and is fun and understandable. I was also pleasantly surprised to see how affordable it is compared to other curriculum similar to it. I definitely recommend Time4Learning!

As a Roadschool Mom Time4Learning has been a lifesaver! In case you might be wondering what roadschooling is, it is when you homeschool while on the road. For some that could mean while driving to appointments in a car or during vacations. For others like myself, it means while living on the road permanently; full or part time (hotel, tent, RV, etc.) My family and I have been living full-time in a 5th wheel for several years now. We really love the freedom of this lifestyle, but living in a big house and living in a RV is two different animals. Space for one is very limited and very valuable to say the least. So, after a little while on the road, we knew the way we homeschooled would have to change. I can’t tell you how happy I was to find T4L. I didn’t have to worry about where to store all the books, folders, graded papers. Plus, I no longer had to grade papers!!! T4L does all of the grading and record keeping for you, which meant more time for me to spend with the family. All we had to have was a laptop (or tablet) and since that was something we would bring anyways, it wasn’t going to be taking up any extra valuable space ;) I think the best thing I have discovered so far about this curriculum is that my kids love it and have really excelled with it. T4L has this option where you have access to 3 grade levels at once. So, for example your child is in 5th grade, they would have access to 4th, 5th, and 6th grades material. For my kids this has helped because they can learn at their own pace. That means that even if they are a bit slower in one subject, they can work longer in that grade level, but can go ahead and move on in the others. I couldn’t really afford to allow my kids to do that with their old curriculum. Whether you are a roadschool mom like me or just a homeschool mom looking for an awesome curriculum, I would definitely give Time4Learning a try, especially since they have a money back guarantee ;)

Our family has been homeschooling for many years using a combination of more traditional text, unit studies, etc. This past year, however, we wanted to change things up incorporating an online curriculum to tap kids' tech savvy desires. We finally settled on Time4Learning and found it to be a great fit for our family. Currently we have kids in Kindergarten, 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th using the program.

The kids have enjoyed engaging in the interactive lessons. Our youngest two are having a blast with the recent addition of Science4Us to their grade levels. Our middle school kids love the portability as they can do class on their Kindle with no books to lug around! Our high school student has found her classes to be interesting and although a previously reluctant writer, she's been eager to work on writing assignments within her own portal. Her only 'complaint' is to add more electives!

The parent dashboard allows me to see at a glance individual progress and any areas which may need additional focus. We love the ability to customize the program grade levels by subject for each child – so our math whiz can jump forward a level in math to remain challenged! We also were able to drop down a level temporarily for another child to rebuild confidence – then move ahead again when he was ready.

At all levels the scope and sequence is available – giving us the option of allowing students to follow lessons in order or assign/skip as preferred. Additional extensions are available along with printable worksheets for extra practice or offline work. In comparison to our previous curriculum – Time4Learning has been just as thorough academically. The program is secular which we were fine with as we prefer to teach our children our faith/belief system on our own separately. While kids are able to work independently, we oversee and have had terrific discussions / learning opportunities.

Things our family loves: 1) Affordability (no contracts!); 2) Ability to design our own schedule (daily, weekly and even yearly – doing what is best for us!); 3) Comprehensive lessons which encourage kids to learn in an appealing way (which helps with retention!); 4) Option to custom-fit to each kid's needs; 5) The massive amount of time saved in lesson planning/grading has freed up time for other activities (as a family and for kids!
