The Best Homeschool Online Courses for Math, Science, Grammar + More

This post: Homeschool online courses for just about any subject.

I was the weird kid who loved academics. As early as my elementary years, I remember stressing over making top grades. As strange as it may sound, I actually liked school. (I think it’s an INTJ female thing.)

But there were two exceptions: math and science .

As much as I adored literature, history, spelling, and grammar, I struggled so much with math and science that it almost made my high school years unbearable.  

When I started homeschooling our oldest child (who graduated in 2021), I felt an impending sense of dread about what I knew was coming (math and science). A long way off, perhaps, but looming in the future none-the-less. 

The Honest Truth

I never have mastered teaching math and science. After years and years as a home educator, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that these subjects are simply not in my wheel house. 

Obviously, my kids can’t just skip math and science because Mom doesn’t like to teach them. (Some of my kids are actually pretty amazing at these subjects.)

The solution?

Homeschool Online Courses

We’ve tried a variety of things over the years, like tutoring, classes, and online courses. So far, what’s worked best for everyone is the latter- online video courses.

In other words, I’ve learned to outsource what I’m not good at.

High School Science Classes
Homeschool online courses are a home educator’s best friend.

If you’re a home educator needing help with part of your child’s learning experience, I encourage you to consider an online video course or two.

Below are some of the best courses that equally affordable + enjoyable. Simply click on the subject to read about my favorite recommendation.

Top Homeschool Online Courses Our Family Loves

Math

Math has been a bit trickier for us to navigate, but a few years ago we discovered a curriculum that everyone (mostly) loves: Master Books. The elementary level math (which I can totally conquer) is comprised of workbook-style curriculum; starting with sixth grade math, they offer video courses through Master Books Academy.

My kids have had good experiences with these courses over the last two years, and three kids are enrolled in courses for this school year.

Grammar/Language Arts

They offer everything from kindergarten and lower elementary courses to high school-level courses. (My daughter completed the Jensen’s Grammar course for her 9th grade Language Arts credit.)

Latin

If you’re a classical educator, chances are Latin is one of the subjects on your roster. In the three years our family was involved in a Classical Conversations community, we found a lot of help from the Latin With Andy online videos.

(I would go so far as to say that Andy makes Latin almost enjoyable- and that’s saying something.)
