Customer Testimonials

We love Right Start Math, great hands on learning that really works for my slow learner and my advanced learner. They love the games and are learning without realizing it. The teacher manual explains everything perfectly! All the manipulatives are wonderful and truly helpful!

Ben is having such bittersweet feelings about finishing this class. He’s been doing RightStart since he was in first grade, back in 2010 when we started homeschooling, so this really marks the end of an era for him (and for me, too!) This class has been such a wonderful experience for him. He has grown so much in terms of both his mathematical reasoning and his independence as a student. Holding himself accountable to his teachers has been very powerful, and he’s really finding and appreciating the joy in learning Math. So thank you, thank you, thank you for putting together the online class and for allowing Ben to be a part of the pilot program. We look forward to his sister starting the class in a couple of years!

In gratitude, Sharon

My son had been in the habit of refusing to do anything that even remotely resembled math. I spent a very long time searching for the right program to peak his interest. Right Start Math has been the key that opened the math door for him. He went from running from math to asking to do math a couple times a day! Both my children love it. They both enjoy playing the math games and will ask to play them over and over. We curl up together and go through the lessons and play the game. I love seeing them easily learn the math facts that often had been a struggle in the past. No more flash cards needed! No effort to try to memorize. They simply play games in the lesson and the math facts just sort of “click”. That made my son so happy. He now feels like he has a chance at being successful in math. It was worth every penny we invested in the program! I plan to continue using it for as long as we can. I’m so glad to have found a program that is in line with our philosophy that learning should be fun.

I am so glad my friend recommended this program to me. We’ve been homeschooling for five years now and although math hasn’t necessarily been a difficulty for my children it was never enjoyable. One of my goals in home educating is to instill a love for learning in my children and RightStart has done just that. Math is now one of the favourite subjects in our home. The games are a game changer; no pun intended. They really take the concepts learned and apply them in a concrete, enjoyable way that sticks! RightStart is a great mix promoting both Charlotte Mason’s thoughts alongside memorization for Classical learning.
Is there a big commitment involved: absolutely, but it is so worth seeing math turn from a bore to a delight.

I wanted to tell you what a blessing the math is. My son is actually looking forward to math and it is so enjoyable playing the games instead of endless drilling. Today, he said, “Let’s do the fancy math!!” Not sure why he thinks it’s fancy but the enthusiasm is not something that I’ve seen for math EVER. As a child on the autism spectrum, to see emotions is enough to make my mommy day!!!


This will be my 3rd year teach RSM. It has been a God send! My daughter struggled a lot with other curriculums. She struggles with her focus and she had an awful time trying to memorize math facts. I really wish I could have started her with RSM when she was Kindergarten age. With this curriculum she has just soared. She adds two digit numbers in her head for FUN! She absolutely loves math!


“Just wanted to share our great experience with Right Start Mathematics. I was first introduced to this program through a good friend and homeschooling mentor. I had already researched into other math programs like Saxxon Math and Math-U-See. I was drawn to the math manipulatives available in Right Start Mathematics.

You know a program is good when your children ask you to sit and learn that subject! My son, age 5, and daughter, age 3 happily sit for the brief 10 min lesson in math using the Level A program. My son has maintained more interest and is comfortable adding and subtracting numbers from 0-15 within only 5 lessons! The three year old seems to be enjoying the hands on lessons and finally got through the learning phase of rote counting to accurately counting objects (under 10).

We’ve been very satisfied with our first purchase with the co-op and have since then made a purchase in science and language arts. Thank you for your great services!”


I just wanted to thank you again for the curriculum. My son has loved doing the Right Start program and it has helped him so much.


I swapped to RightStart for my children about 6 weeks ago, so haven’t yet had the full benefit of the RightStart method. What I am noticing is an enthusiasm for math which had been lacking until now. My girls were finding their old curriculum a little dry. I love that they now can’t wait for their math lessons and when choosing 2 toys/games to take away on holiday the RightStart cards were among their choices!


Thank you again for providing this excellent program!

On another note, my 13 year old who also watches along with your online level G program has said this is helping him a lot with his pre-algebra that he is working on.

My 15 year old who also watches along, who started with the RightStart Math Curriculum and worked through the program when he was very young, has just filed for his first patent and is about to patent his second device. He is able to design very complex designs in a Cad program and 3D print his prototypes. He has started reading a Calculus book for fun (even though he is only in Algebra 1). I think Dr. Cotter’s program is a great foundational program!

Thank you for teaching the math to my children and for your exceptional Geometry program and encouragement!
