[Sticky] Online Learning
Homeschooling is best when it isn't left solely to Mum or Dad to do the teaching. Using online schools is a great resource and there are countless options to choose from, whether you just want some extra math help or a fully integrated curriculum.
PattayaParent is compiling a list to be kept as a sticky at the top of this thread. Please add a reply to any of your own choices and admin will add them to the sticky post.
Please do share your own personal experiences with any online learning sites so that other parents can be better informed too.
IXL math - IXL have been established for over 10 years. They started out just offering Math but have now expanded into many other subjects like science, languages and social sciences. Membership rates are low, math is $9.95 per month and 4 core subjects total just $19.95 per month. The usability is engaging and comprehensive with frequent fun tests and many weekly/monthly progress charts available.
Maths Online - This is an Australian math service offering great easy videos in the wonderful easy going accent that is the Australian accent! It actually really makes a difference as new math concepts do not sound as tricky or foreboding in the friendly Aussie accent. We have had great success with this programme.

Do you have any experience of 'support' schools for online learning ? I have used one thats based in UK for 1 of my children BUT of course it being based in UK does present problems with timing as classes are based around UK school times, meaning late classes can be 11pm , yikes.
Are there any you know of that are more Asian based , Singapore maybe ?
