Review: Virtual Nerd

~Real Help in Math and Science

Ages: Jr/Sr High School
Cost:  $49 mo subscription/$5 one day use/ $19 1x wk use

I say:  Awesome!  Very helpful!
I received a trial period of Virtual Nerd as part of The Old Schoolhouse Crew review group in exchange for my honest opinions without monetary compensation.

Math is just not my long suit and Virtual Nerd is a gem! If you have a child in PreAlg, Alg I or II or even Intro Physics who could use a little help or additional content, then give Virtual Nerd a try~and you can try it for FREE HERE~They offer a FREE  2HR TRIAL to their basic service for anyone~woot! Their subscription premium is $49 a mo or other pricing as I listed above, but you can check it out to see if it's a good fit for your child without obligation first~even purchase a one day pass if necessary~this is a win-win situation! Of course, I think Virtual Nerd makes great supplement to our regular math curriculum~my daughter taking Alg I used it to review some concepts and my son as well~The videos are GREAT! They are modern young adults who definitely teach to the student with great persona and energy as well as THEY ARE SHORT and to the point! Nobody but nobody wants to listen to ... 'uh, well...first you...and then ...and...uh...' from ANYBODY who is teaching~B O R I N G~but not so with Virtual Nerd~it's very engaging! No dumbed down kiddified teaching techniques or routines~WOOT!

New Dynamic Whiteboard
