Schoolhouse Review: A+ Tutorsoft
A+ Tutorsoft, Inc. is an interactive, multimedia, multi-sensory math program for grades 1-6, plus Pre-Algebra and Algebra I. A+ Tutorsoft offers both online and CD software math curriculum. For this review, I received the A+ Interactive Math 4th Grade CD Software, Premium Edition.
Don't let the website overwhelm you like it did me. Once you've spent a little time there, you will begin to see all that this program has to offer. Things like free math placement tests, free pdf downloads of grade specific worksheet packs, a free one month online subscription, just to name a few.
Here is a testimonial from their website:
"A+ Tutorsoft happens to be one of those exceptional and outstanding visual math programs. What initially attracted my visual non-math self to this program was not just the visuals but how many features you get with this program."
"Give me all the help I want with math and present it to me in a variety of ways. A+ Tutorsoft gets rave reviews from me on that part. You don't get just one way to tackle this program but you can mix and match these features depending on your needs. It is like having both a student curriculum and teacher's guide rolled into one program."

There are three options for A+ Interactive Math:
~~~ an online subscription
~~~ a physical CD standard edition
~~~ a physical CD premium edition
A+ Interactive Math is a full math curriculum. My 11 year old daughter is using this program.
It includes multimedia lessons which are great. I didn't have to sit with her and be the teacher, everything is already there. I can easily monitor her progress. It has a lesson plan which is very helpful, an easy way to keep up with things.
The Interactive Q & A section comes with each lesson and is where she was able to respond with an answer to what she was learning. This section has several multiple choice questions. She said she really enjoyed this. It would give her immediate feedback on her answers. She had an option at the end of this section to print a certificate.
The curriculum book is a math textbook that can accompany each lesson. There is also a worksheet and exam that can printed out to complete. It also has an answer and solution section.
Over all, my daughter thought the program was good. She is using it as a supplement with her other math program. I asked her if A+ Interactive Math would be something she would like to continue using and her response was "Yes". I think this is something I will be able to pass down to my younger bugs since I chose to review the CD software.
The Premium 4th Grade CD Edition can be purchased for $124.99 and the program works for up to 5 children. The standard edition is available for $99.99.
The online version is $19.95 a month, $49.99 quarterly and $124.99 yearly.
As an added bonus, A+ Tutorsoft, Inc. is offering a 50% off discount through the end of March.
