Educator.com Review and Giveaway!


Do you or your children need help with schoolwork? Or maybe your children need help with schoolwork, but you don't quite understand it completely either? Would you like to have a tutor that works on your schedule? Or maybe you just like to learn things. If you answer yes to any of these questions Educator.com might be just what you are looking for!

Educator.com provides lessons for the following subjects Math, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, and a special section named Math Magic!

Learn Math -Has 34 different lessons. Including lectures on Algebra 1, Algebra 2 , Calculus BC, Calculus AB, and Statistics. Each Section is taught from beginning to end. Educator.com not only uses lectures to teach math, but each Professor walks you through many examples to get their point across! When I say walks you through I mean that you can see the equation the professor is working on and while they explain verbally they also write each step out as they complete it! These sections are great for auditory, visual, and tactile (hands on) learners.

Learn Chemistry - Has 22 Courses available. Professor Goldwhite does an excellent job explaining Chemistry. This is one subject I had a lot of difficulty with in Nursing school. Mainly because I had a poor professor. I think that if these lectures had been available at Educator.com then I would have done a lot better! These lessons would be especially beneficial for auditory and visual learners.

Learn Biology - Has 12 Courses Available. These lectures are provided by the California Regents, Professors from the University of California. These courses are quite different from the Math and Chemistry Section. The biology section is a video with the professor speaking in the background. I personally like the first two sections more because it feels like the professor is actually trying to communicate with you. I still believe that this could be beneficial to Biology Students. You just have to get past the computer like voice.

Learn Computer Science - Has 11 Courses available. Professor Gyham provides lectures for this section. Professor Gyham does appear excited about Computer Science and uses an outline during his lecture to help teach. The only issue I had was that Professor Gyham spoke really fast in some of his lessons. This may not be an issue for students who are taking his class and please keep in mind that I do not know anything about Computer Science. With that said, I have to admit I could not really keep up.

The Math Magic Section- Math Magic offers videos explaining fractions, divisibility rules, coin probability, and more. This section could even be helpful to parents who need a refresher course to help their children with schoolwork. I hope Educator.com is still around in a few years because I can already tell you I will probably need a refresher course when Brea starts bringing math home!

I think I would have to say that the best feature of Educator.com is the Outline setup. This makes it easy for students to find exactly what they need help with. I am sure that we all agree that being able to find information quickly when studying for a test is essential. Educator.com has set up their programs with this in mind!

Another thing to keep in mind is that Educator.com would be beneficial to high school students as well as college students. If you are taking a class in one of the subjects available then I would definitely encourage you to give Educator.com a try. If you want to check it out for yourself head on over to Educator.com now. They have free movies to get you started and from there you can decide if Educator.com will benefit you!

I a am homeschooling mother and educator.com looks to be a wealth of information for me and my brood. I am a math and science junkie so I can't say exactly which I would use most, or would be the most helpful since I love it all. However, I think the mathmagic would be wonderful for my son right now.

Wow, this would be a fantastic prize to win. I am not really computer saavy so I would start right off with the intro to computer/computer system. Work my way up :)
I also have a daughter going into 10th grade . I think she would find other available courses useful.
