TestimonialsFollowing are some excerpts of what teachers and parents around the country are saying about HELP Math.
“I have recently implemented the HELP Program…I like that the HELP Program empowers the instructor by allowing the choice of utilizing the program to reinforce taught instruction, or teaching a complete lesson. The HELP Program can also be used as an adaptive technique. This means that the program assesses the students overall math skills, then it generates the individualized lessons needed.
“We have used the HELP Program in high school for a couple of years with great success. In this last year 82% of those students who were assigned a HELP class, in addition to their regular math class, made high growth (above the 66th percentile) on the State math test. 47% of the students grew at above the 90th percentile even though one of the HELP classes was taught by the woodshop teacher.”
“I have absolutely loved it! I have been able to put 5 students on HELP Math that had very little or no schooling, and with the aid of a peer mentor they were able to make great strides and eventually rejoined the rest of the group. I also had 2 students on it that were very ADVANCED and they were working on algebra and geometry. It saved me from having 6 - 8 classes that I would have to prep for in the same hour.”
“I just purchased HELP Math awhile ago and it is already making a huge difference for my kids. After only a few days they were coming to me raving about how much they had learned in categories that had somehow slipped between the cracks earlier on…HELP Math is not just for kids struggling in math. It is a comprehensive, instructional math program built on solid state standards. You can be sure if your child can complete this program that they are more than ready for the next level of education anywhere in the world!"
“The program allowed us to easily assess each student and customize a curriculum for them based on the assessment results. Additionally, students could work with the HELP Math program either in their regular classroom, the intervention lab, or at home … In comparison to some of the other programs we have piloted at our campus, I have found that the students are more focused and engaged in HELP Math, mainly due to its use of the SIOP model and the linguistic support it offers. I have watched as students’ eyes track along with the program’s oral presentation; their level of engagement is obvious.”
"I spent tons of hours looking for a math program that would explain the math concepts to my child, and do it in an interesting way. This program really delivers!...Thanks for such an awesome program. There is no other like it that I’ve found!"
Mrs. C. DeWitt, Parent

"...my students have definitely benefited from the program.....the assessment of needs and placement has really been right on for these students identifying their needs....I have been fairly effective with these type of students in the past but have always felt we have not filled in these missing pieces they need to continue in the higher level classes.....After 17 years of teaching I love that this helps me do that!!!"
"I continue to be impressed with the clear format and stepwise learning the program utilizes. Thank you for an excellent product that is making such a positive difference for my son."
"The results have been phenomenal and I plan on using HLP Math for many years to come, along with extending my highest endorsement to those who wish to purchase this software for their respective schools."
