The A+ Parents podcast, Hosted by “Mr. D Math Live” Founder Dennis DiNoia, speaks with parents, homeschool organizations, and homeschool influencers on how to help our students become self-directed learners.

Our programs encourage students to discover how to learn vs what to learn and how to teach others what they are learning along the way. Mr. D Math Live programs empower students to correct their work, discover their own ah-ha moments and develop lifelong self-mastery skills.

We share tips, tricks and stories from educators on how students can think for themselves by teaching them to operate with free will, accountability, honor, and respect.

Our unique approach awakens students to discover their own unique expression of how they view education. They communicate what they’ve discovered and apply their knowledge to “the world outside of a classroom.” We focus on multiple learning styles allowing students to discover their own strengths in how they learn.

After all, what does every parent truly want? We all want our children to have a great life beyond what their report card says. That is what it means to be an A+ Parent. Grades are important. But not as important as the lifetime of happiness through self-discovery and knowledge mastery.

Welcome to the A+ Parent podcast and thank you for listening.

Meggrissom ,

What an awesome kid and interview!!!

Just listened to Anjali and Mr. D- such and amazing kid and gracious host! Thanks for sharing with the universe!

WordObserver ,

Chock full of insight!

As a retiree, Gen Xer wife and mom, I had not expected to be homeschooling my two Gen Z daughters. But it’s going on three years and I feel like Deputy Barney Fife at times—bumbling in my efforts to provide my kiddos a fulfilling home education. What has helped is to listen in on podcasts such as A+ Parents. The insight has been exceptionally helpful as it comes from actual homeschool students, their parents, and those in education. Hearing teens speak genuinely and candidly about their experiences as a homeschooler has enlightened certain approaches I use with my students. Likewise, I’ve received beneficial guidance on concerns related to secondary education and graduation. Thank you Mr. DiNoia and your team for creating an invaluable platform for parents such as myself. I may never become completely comfortable as I facilitate my kiddos home education, but your podcast has provided much needed support to encourage me to stay the course.
