Overall Experience:

Working with ALEKS has been very good for me.

What challenges did the student face in math prior to using ALEKS?

Remembering math that I learned 25 years ago was my only challenge.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

I needed something that was fast and focused, and ALEKS is both!

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

I have been able to teach my son Algebra with confidence.

How does the student feel about his/her progress in ALEKS?

ALEKS is amazing. I wasn't the best math student in high school, but ALEKS quickly got me up to speed. In fact, it helped me realize that all of the things that I thought were difficult in high school aren't really difficult at all.
