Inside: Learn how Mr. D Math courses can make your homeschool teen happy and your life easier!
We were heading into the year of geometry. Math had not been going well for my son up to this point. I knew geometry would be a problem. How could it not? All those parallelograms, angles, and the Pythagorean theorem which sounds like a Greek god, not math.
Honestly, this was not my strong point. I loved Algebra, but geometry, not so much. So I felt my son’s pain and realized there may be an issue with me teaching it. I really didn’t feel like having one of THOSE years, if you know what I mean.

Online Math Courses- High School
In my search for the best online math course, I came across a math program that started at the pre-algebra level and went all the way through high school. This meant it included geometry!
The friendly face of the instructor grabbed my attention. (Let’s be real, if your kids don’t like who’s instructing them they will have a bad attitude, tune out, and blame you for picking the program.)
I started watching testimonials and reading reviews. The students were all going on about how they understood math concepts for the first time and the instructor made it fun! Ha! That was not a word we’d used in math up to this point.
We only understood misery, frustration, and confusion.
He’s the Real Deal
Later that spring, I attended one of the instructor’s classes at a homeschool convention and saw him live in person. There were kids in there that voluntarily came to his session to do math! Who does that?
He is everything you would want in a math teacher. He’s full of personality, keeps the kids engaged, and has a great sense of humor. All those testimonials were right! He was fun! And he explained things in a way that made math easy to understand. I was sold!
Who is this instructor? Mr. D!
Mr. D Math
Surely you’ve heard of Mr. D Math. That was 5 years ago when I discovered him. Since then, he’s become very popular due to his success with students.
My son took his geometry class the next year, and it went so much better than I had envisioned! He grasped the concepts, built a better foundation for Algebra II, and even chuckled during some of the lessons. He was happy again!
Why Mr. D Math Is Different
Mr. D Math classes are not like most classes out there. He doesn’t leave your kids stranded to figure things out on their own. All students (and parents) have a built-in teaching partner to support them during his courses to answer any questions that come up.
The classes are online with a video format, and students will follow along while watching Mr. D work out each problem step-by-step on a whiteboard. He also has live interactive group sessions students can join.

A typical computer based homeschool curriculum will give a score and the student might glance over the answers to see which ones he missed. Mr. D Math is different. After lessons or tests, students must check their own work using a solutions manual. I have seen firsthand how this helps my children grasp math concepts better. Me telling him what he did wrong is way less effective than him working through the solution and discovering it for himself.
If students have trouble with a problem, they can always reach a Mr. D Math staff member via help sessions or email them.
He caters these math classes towards multiple learning styles (which you know I’m all about), so it’s great for all types of students.

Payment Options with Perks
Homeschooling is not free. In fact, it can be costly, especially when you get into the higher level classes.
Mr. D Math offers the option of paying for courses in full or monthly payments. His classes are similar to the cost of other programs I’ve used that have no assistance. You are getting a lot for the price of these courses and all the help necessary for your child to succeed.
I’m grateful I took a chance on a Mr. D math course and I know my son enjoyed that year of math WAY more than he would have. It saved me a lot of time and energy not having to relearn a subject I really didn’t want to study again in order to teach it. And best of all, my son and I didn’t have to butt heads all year over math.
Perhaps math was not your strong subject, and you fear teaching a homeschool high school level math course. You don’t have to be the teacher! This is a great option that doesn’t sacrifice your child’s education.
Or maybe you have a child who is struggling in the higher level math courses and could use a fun instructor who makes the concepts easy to understand.
Check out Mr. D and prepare for your child to be surprisingly happy this year!
Fall enrollment is open now! Classes fill up fast and several are already full!
