Khan Academy may be in my Future
Want your child to have more access to high quality learning? Want your child to have some tutoring on Algebra because you've forgotten all you learned in 9th grade? What about Chemistry? I didn't have to take it in high school so I have no idea how to help someone in that area. Maybe you're in the same boat. Or wait! Maybe your child needs SAT prep and you don't want to pay a huge fee where your child is one among the many in the Saturday morning classes. But what about you? Are you studying for your GMAT? Do you want to know more about banking? Trying to get a grip on Venture Capital or understand Macro- and Microeconomics? It's all there. And you don't have to do some random Google search to pull up all kinds of videos and websites that may or may not make any sense and may or may not be super boring.
Check out Khan Academy. (Oh goodness, I sound like a commercial.) Seriously, though. I had heard about Khan but never actually went to the website until I watched the 60 Minutes clip. Wow. It's amazing. One of my friends says he uses it to learn things they didn't teach us in school. I'm thinking I may do the same thing. The great and amazing thing is, it's all FREE! Now *that's* what I'm talking about! Free, quality education for all. That's the kind of world I want to live in!
Have you tried any of their classes? What did you think? Post here and let me know. I'd love to hear about ones you'd recommend!
