Review of Virtual Nerd

Virtual Nerd is a website geared towards those students who are struggling with mathematics.  A conglomeration of online video resources are used to assist the student in solving a variety of mathematical problems.  In addition, a white board and a live teacher are additional  up to date benefits that work to help the student feel ready and capable of learning.Virtual Nerd LogoVirtual Nerd Logo

Both my son and daughter have used Virtual Nerd since we were asked to review the website.  My son and daughter, who are in the 8th grade and 6th grade respectively, were both impressed with the Virtual Nerd website.  They found it to be easy to use and also to understand.  My daughter especially commented after watching the video on numerical and algebraic expressions that she found it easy to understand what the teacher was explaining.  My husband, a former math and science teacher, also looked through the website and viewed many of the videos.  He found that Virtual Nerd would be a useful tool for teachers, parents and students to use.

Virtual Nerd is available for $49 for a month long subscription.  Other pricing options are available as well if you are in need of a different time frame.  To find out more, visit

  2. As a supporter of Virtual Nerd, we wanted you to know about our Math Boot Camp. To help students avoid the "summer slide", we are offering boot camps in: Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II. The five-week camps cost only $19! A pre-quiz will assess student's knowledge, and weekly playlists will be assigned to help them attain a better understanding of the subject and build upon concept knowledge. Finally we wrap up with a quiz that assesses how far they have come! We hope you will share the good news. Get started today!
