“Here’s an update on Katie’s experience with Dyscalculia & UnLock Math... 

"This has been our best year of math EVER! She even said she was proud of herself, math & proud, I never thought I would hear that!” Kathleen Piper

"absolutely LOVE UnLock Math...

"We absolutely LOVE UnLock Math! I hope to be able to continue using it for our son at least through Algebra if not all the way through high school. We most definitely recommend you guys!" - Jennifer White

 

"as a former elementary math teacher...

"When I first learned of UnLock Math, I was curious, intrigued, and desperate to find a curriculum that would help my child who was struggling with math. I had unsuccessfully tried many other homeschool curriculums, and as a former elementary math teacher, I was discouraged. UnLock Math was an answer to prayer. My child, has been challenged, been stretched, and with Alesia's guidance, has succeeded. Today I overheard my child telling a younger child, "I love mixed numbers. I can show you how to do that." That confidence, that willingness to engage, is a result of UnLock Math. Thank you!"

"PS. We are excited for the future levels." - Traci-Lynn Burt

"has taken the stress and frustration out of math... 

"UnLock Math has really taken the stress and frustration out of math instruction for my son! The program has taken difficult concepts and broken them down into easy to understand chunks. It hasn't become frustrating because Alesia's thorough explanations and the practice problems allow him to really "get" each concept before adding the next level. He loves that he can watch a video over, if necessary, to make sure that he understands each concept.
We have also really appreciated the level of response we have received any time we have had a question. Matthew and Alesia have always responded promptly and professionally to quickly address our emails." 
"Our family looks forward to continuing our relationship with UnLock Math as our other 3 children reach Pre-Algebra level!" - Karlene McCoy

"communication from the creators when we need help is amazing...

“UnLock Math is a new program out of Canada, and it is WONDERFUL. My son has been doing “UnLock Pre-Algebra”. It follows a very logical path, building one skill upon another. He is doing much better now. Each lesson is well constructed and communication from the creators when we need help is amazing.” - Lisa Wadley

 

"Unlock Math is a wonderfully well thought out curriculum, that has everything...

"Alesia is very passionate about math. She not only loves it, she also loves teaching it and it shows through her instructional videos. We love the videos because it's just awesome to see Alesia on screen watching her do what she loves, :) because she makes the lessons so easy to understand. Math has always been a struggle for my daughter. Using the UnLock Math curriculum has been just what she's needed. From the short, concise instruction videos, to the lessons themselves and the personal help that Alesia offers when it is needed, UnLock Math is a wonderfully, well thought out curriculum, that has everything you would expect any great curriculum to have. Also, the way to open up a lesson with the rockets is very cool and keeps the child organized within the unit. Then the lessons themselves being given one at a time, so it's not overwhelming, is really helpful." - Carolyn Evans, parent

 

"packages Alesia's enthusiasm and knowledge...

“The media is full of stories about how Canada is falling behind other countries in international indicators of students' mathematics performance, parents, especially, are increasingly concerned. However, many parents lack the knowledge, confidence, and tools to help their own children in mathematics. Independent math learning centres are thriving. UnLock Math offers parents and students another option: a resource that can be used at home that essentially packages Alesia's enthusiasm and knowledge.” - Dr. David Poole, Professor Trent University Math Dept.

 

"What value do you put on having direct access to an experienced professional Math Educator?...

"What value do you put on having direct access to an experienced professional Math Educator?
Alesia promptly answered my email questions about my son's math skills; she offered to call my son, at her own expense; and, even asked to review his past tests, via email, so to isolate the areas that he needed help in then sent detailed instructions for his next steps."
"Alesia loves Math and loves to motivate and help students: A winning combination!" - Elizabeth Henstock, parent

 

"by far the best teacher I had ever had...

"Mrs. Blackwood was by far the best teacher I had ever had. She was more than a teacher... she was a friend. She treated each student like they were her only student. She made sure that if you did not understand something immediately, she worked with you until you did. She was never too busy for anyone, despite her busy schedule as a teacher in a prestigious private school. It was devastating when Mrs. Blackwood moved, I felt like a family member was gone. We have remained in contact, and that is not surprising at all. She still makes it a point to ask how things are going and shows genuine concern although it's been almost 10 years since she taught me. She is an asset to any educational organization she is a part of and every student she has should consider themselves honored to be taught by such a genuinely wonderful person." - Kendall Ham, student

 

"a phenomenal and very knowledgeable teacher in math...

  "I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Blackwood in 2002 at LaGrange Academy. She was a delightful, energetic and caring addition to the LaGrange Academy team. Mrs. Blackwood taught me Calculus I my senior year in high school in the 2002-2003 school year. Not only was she a phenomenal and very knowledgeable teacher in math, she took an interest in the ultimate success of her students. She promoted a very inviting and personable environment for us to learn in. Our Calculus class became a very close family under Mrs. Blackwood’s care. The time I spent with her was not only highly educational and essential to my success in math, but valuable to my development as a person. Mrs. Blackwood taught me essential skills to carry on in my college career with higher level math courses. I am lucky to call Mrs. Blackwood a dear friend after 14 years of growing with her by my side. I would highly recommend Mrs. Blackwood as a teacher, mentor, and friend to any student of any age, experience or education level." - Tamara Riadi, student, Class of ‘03, Juris Doctor

 

"the best math teacher I ever had...

   "Mrs. Blackwood was truly the best math teacher I ever had. I had her in the 11th grade and the material was not easy. Mrs. Blackwood always took time to make sure each individual student understood the concept before completely moving on to the next concept. If we still didn’t understand the material, Mrs. Blackwood would let us schedule a time after school to get more help. I think Mrs. Blackwood is a perfect example of how teachers should be. She is caring, enthusiastic, and you can tell that teaching math is her passion. She inspires so many people, just by seeing her reaction from students getting that “ah ha” moment after getting the right answer to a problem, you can tell that math and teaching is her passion." - Katie Harrison, student
