Why do Homeschoolers love Thinkwell?
Watch these video testimonials by real homeschool students
Every day, someone tells us we have the best homeschool courses in the world.
From Homeschool Parents:
“I have recommended them to many friends, all of whom have used them with great success. Dr. Burger's sense of humor really adds to the class and makes it particularly engaging for my son.”
“It is wonderful to have the checklist of each lesson for my daughter to see her progress, and for me to have an easy evaluation for our homeschool program. It is so nice not to be the one grading her.”
“My 8th grader learns more efficiently by watching the instructor write out and explain the material in an interesting manner. He also benefits from going back and watching a problem he may not have quite gotten the first time around.”
“We will definitely be staying with Thinkwell, and as my son gets older, he will experience the epiphany moments more often with Thinkwell than with a workbook.”
“Our family has enjoyed the format and scope of the Thinkwell course we've used in our homeschool program. It is well organized, easy to use and has been an asset to our homeschool curriculum.”
“We believe we made a wise decision to use Thinkwell for our daughter's economic education. This was our first Thinkwell program, but I don't think it will be our last. Thank you for putting out such as outstanding product.”
“We love it. I recommend it regularly. People are under the false impression that 50 minutes of drudgery is better than 25 minutes of math enjoyment. The goal is to learn it, not to agonize over it.”
From Homeschool Students:
“Professor Burger is passionate about Math and he is able to transmit his passion and clear thinking through his lectures. I could understand not only the concepts and HOW to solve the problems, but WHY we solve them in a certain way. This is the characteristic of a highly qualified Instructor. You meet just a few of those instructors in a lifetime. Excellent program.”
“When I use Thinkwell, the retention rate of what I've learned is significantly increased. I would say that Thinkwell not only makes the material easier to digest but creates a fun way to actually learn math.”
“Thinkwell gives students hands on experience through virtual instruction that uses advanced media technology; such an experience is incomparable to the trivial textbook. Thinkwell brings life to seemingly mundane topics with the teachings of great professors and through numerous extensive interactive applications. Thank you, Thinkwell!”
“Thinkwell is far better than a textbook. It helps those who are visual and auditory learners because it has lectures to listen to and corresponding notes to follow the main ideas of the lectures. The wonderful graphs and illustrations also help one to remember the material with vibrant colors. All of this and the fact that it is accessible at any time makes Thinkwell superior to almost any other method of learning.”
“Thinkwell is a WONDERFUL tool for learning. I like the fact that I can pause and rewind the lectures to whatever point that I need it to be. This is great for taking notes. The transcripts and supplemental materials are very helpful in explaining the material and they make studying for the exams an absolute breeze.”
“I really like the fact that things are explained in everyday English. Yes, you use scientific terms too, but you aren't so complex that the brain of an unscientific-minded person can't wrap around the concepts you are teaching. I also like the fact that you utilize different learning style techniques. While the 'lectures' capitalize on verbal and visual skills, they also include a smattering of musical and kinesthetic learning as well. I am truly enjoying learning from you!”
“Thinkwell turns learning into enjoyment, only you learn so much more!”
“Thinkwell is a great resource, with videos, notes, sample problems, and animations to help students understand the material and solve problems.”
“Thinkwell is better than a textbook because it is more interactive! Instead of just droning over a book, a virtual person actually comes and teaches it to you.”
“Thinkwell is a program that allows students like me to learn these subjects while still keeping us entertained. Good job, Thinkwell.”
“Thinkwell contains all the necessary components for you to gain a thorough understanding of the course. The lectures are there, the notes are there, and the quizzes are there. It's a complete package.”
“Throughout the Thinkwell lectures, I never got lost. I never got confused. I was able to understand... The lecture section is outstanding.”

Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth
The Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University has used Thinkwell courses as the primary "textbooks" in their programs since 2000.
We're very honored by the fact that they use us in every subject matter that we make a course for.
We have enjoyed our partnership with them, and the families we've met through the Center for Talented Youth program, immensely.
