Does anyone know about Beestar?Is it good?
Not sure how old your son is or what level of math he is in but...

I used Mathhelp as a refresher course and found it to be excellent. I was able to place into college level mathematics at my community college after getting a qualifying score on the placement test (first attempt) and I then went on to Ace the course.

A lot depends on the age of your son and his intrinsic motivation, or lack thereof, for studying. I would imagine that, for younger kids especially, they benefit from going to the physical center where they have teachers/tutors there to keep them on track. Older MS/HS age might do fine with an online program.

But, again, it's an individual thing. What works well for one kid, might not be the best option for another.

My son used to join Mathnasium. However, we have to pay hundreds per month for the basic service. Then, we did sign up online Beestar last year and found the amount of weekly work reasonable. The questions are interesting and not repetitive so my son likes them. Math and Science practice are what we signed him up so far at Beestar. Moreover, he is becoming a better student at school.

I would recommend Beestar. It covers a wide range of math topics and provides practice exercises and assessments for students at various grade levels. It follows a structured curriculum aligned with educational standards, ensuring students get a comprehensive math learning experience. Moreover, it offers weekly math competitions where students can challenge themselves and compete against their peers. This can foster a sense of healthy competition and encourage students to strive for excellence in math.

Try Beestar.org. It is a good alternative to Mathnasium. It is an online math platform that offers a wide range of subjects including math, English and science. It also offers both free and premium options, making it accessible to a wide range of students with different budgets.

It's funny I started this thread years ago and got a notification through my email.

My son did fine when he was older, in junior high he had extra math and was put in more difficult math classess and took them in high school.

My daughter was the opposite and had a hard time with math. I tried mathnasium for her, and she did ok twice a week for about 3 months, but didn't seem to retain much. They did help with homework if necessary but it was expenive. I also was angry when 15 months later after I quit they re charged my credit card.

Nowadays there are so many online resources that are either free or way more affordable. good luck to everyone!
