Avoid: Better free online math help, no customer service, cant stop charges to CC

after signing up we very quickly discovered this was not better than many free websites out there. We attempted to cancel, which appeared to work since we get a message that the account is not active if we try to log in. However, we have been charged for 3 months after the cancellation. Calls do not get answered, if you leave messages they do not call back. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere.

Very bad customer service.

The program wasn't quite what we were looking for. We purchased Learnbop online, in minutes. To cancel, I had to call during business hours, and wait on hold about 45 minutes each time. I've waited almost a month and the amount hasn't been refunded to my credit card yet.

Is It Any Good?

This site does an admirable job of simulating a one-on-one personal math tutor. Its detailed, gentle system helps kids target and remedy their problem areas. Of course, LearnBop isn't nearly as good as an actual live tutor, but it's still helpful; if the preloaded hints aren't enough to help a kid understand, it will at least pinpoint the problem area, and a parent or a teacher can provide the extra help.

Though there's no real "fun factor," kids may be motivated enough by the empowering feeling of understanding math and the desire to avoid feeling lost and confused in class. Parents can set up a home account, and kids will certainly learn by working through the problems at home, though the site is actually directed more toward use in school as a tool for teachers to provide individualized math tutoring. LearnBop will work best as a bridge between home and school, making sure kids truly feel up to speed with what they're learning in class.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
