Hi: Have you tried http://www.lymboo.com ? It's an online alternative to Kumon. The curriculum is comprehensive, and the structure is designed to promote long-term retention. The assignments are rich in basic concepts, word problems, and critical thinking exercises. Every topic is broken in to easy to grasp concepts so that children can become independent learners. The website is very easy to use. Advantages over Kumon: 1. Online - it's convenient. No grading by parents. All performance reports are available instantly online. 2. Free diagnostic tests - determines where the students begins the program 3. Daily assignments - requires almost full score and within recommended time limit 4. Periodic spiral review assignments - to reinforce and retain what was learned earlier. Very important! 5. Cost - fraction of Kumon! Check it out.
