Yes, but but I am wandering if there other options besides SOS.  Which teaching textbooks math is like a help mate . I reinforce the lectures, or the lectures reinforce what I have already explained. My son's math grade improve so as he could visually see what we were discussing, and he likes feeling like the lecture is directly talking to him with  the TTM software.

  Does switched on schoolhouse provide that  same atomosphere. I has some SOS software-older but couldn't get it to work with my vista system so I am not sure how it works.

Since I am not familiar with Teaching Textbooks I really can't say.  SOS is a stand alone software and they do a full year. Not sure if that is what you are asking sorry.

It's not really software, but rather delivered online, but K12 has wonderful Language Arts.

As for SOS, you probably needed and upgraded installation disk that works with Vista.

No, I don't think that SOS provides the same level of instruction and guidance for language that TT does for math. TT is very unique!
