Hear It From Parents...
Dear Teaching Tape Technology
During the past few years I have used both your Algebra 1
and Algebra 2 tapes with my homeschooling high school children.
I find that your strengths are in the following areas:
1. Your instructor states that her goal is to make algebra
easy for the student. She made an immediate "hit"
with my boys and completely changed their attitude toward
2. Her lectures are not ridden with excess stuff to make
a 30 or 45 minute "class time." She gets immediately
to the point, explains the concepts, and leaves the rest of
the time for the student to work the problems. Reviewing a
lesson is no chore because only the lesson is presented and
not a lot of extra stuff. My boys may watch a lesson three
or four times to comprehend a very difficult concept yet they
have not wasted a lot of time.
3. Once I have invested my money in your tapes. It is MINE.
I can lend it or sell it at my own discretion. I have no obligation
to use it only in my own home. I have friends who absolutely
cannot afford to buy these tapes yet can very much benefit
from my investment.
I have used tapes from three or four separate publishers
and find your tapes to be among the most practical and beneficial.
God bless you as you endeavor to make tapes available for
more advanced math….and hurry up!

Dear Teaching Tape,
Thanks again for the tapes. They and the teacher are excellent.
These tapes were an answer to prayer. All summer I had planned
to change my daughter to another company so I could have tapes
for her. She was very upset about the change since she has
done Saxon for several years and prefers it over the other
company. I was so happy last month when I learned there were
videos available for Saxon Algebra. Lindsey has been very
pleased with them. They are just what we needed.
Dear Teaching Tape,
I would like to express my appreciation for your making
available the video teaching tapes of Saxon Algebra 1 and
Algebra 2. My daughters have been using them for half a year
now. They have been a great help to all of us.
My girls enjoy having the teacher explain the lessons. They
appreciate not having to wade through the Saxon explanations,
and much prefer the way the teacher walks them through, step
by step. For myself, the tapes released me from having to
do the lessons with my children, or from even to lay out lesson
plans. This has given me extra hours in my day.
Having these tapes has relieved the tension of having to
administer a subject that I do not have expertise in. Also,
my girls haven't complained about doing math (not everyone's
favorite subject) because they enjoy the format of the teacher
explaining the lesson, turning off the video to do the practice
set, then checking the practice set with the teacher. After
that, they feel ready to conquer the problem set!
Dear Teaching Tape Technology,
Thank you so much for making the videos for Saxon's Advanced
math and Algebra 2. Before your videos, math was so discouraging
for my two high school daughters. After viewing the lessons
taught by your teacher, they love math. They say she explains
each concept so thoroughly, now they not only understand how
to solve the problems but know why and how each concept fits
Your videos are an answer to prayer and have made our homeschooling
much more positive and successful. Thank you, too, for your
efficient and courteous service.
Thank you so much for all your work and for the great teaching
available on videos. May God continue to bless you and guide
you in your work.
