Homeschooling has definitely grown in popularity over the last decade. The Center For Education Statistics reported that in the 2011-2012 school year, 3% of the school-aged population were homeschooled. Nine years later, that number jumped to 9%!
More and more parents are ready to try a new approach to their students’ education. However, homeschooling your child's math is easier said than done. (Especially if those parents didn't like learning math themselves.) One homeschooling mom, Amy, said: "When you think about homeschool math time, what words come to mind? Words like misery, panic, and stress might rise up like bile."
So how can homeschooling parents get quality math education for their students without losing their minds? (This seems urgent...)
A popular blog, Rock Your Homeschool, has some advice: "There are situations where you might not have the time, energy, or attention span to fully meet your kid's homeschool math needs. Instead of adding stress to your homeschool, consider outsourcing homeschool math time. Outsourcing homeschool math is a very smart and positive choice. If you are unsure of your own math knowledge, have multiple kids to teach, or have limited time due to busy schedules, outsourcing homeschool math will be doing you and your student a great service."

A Mathnasium parent, Carolyn Linson says, "My daughter has been coming for about 6 months now and we have seen A LOT of improvement in her math skills. The tutors are friendly, encouraging, and always willing to help in her problem areas."
