Here are some comments about my flipped classroom from former students, parents, and teachers...

"One of my son's former teachers referred me to Mr. Bledsoe because of the different approach he takes in his classes. He was a little apprehensive about the flipped classroom at first, but because he struggles so much in math we decided to give it a try. After one week and getting more comfortable with the format, he was performing better than he ever had in math and really enjoyed the class."

"This was my first experience working with a student who was enrolled in a course that taught using a flipped format and it was phenomenal! I was fairly skeptical when I first heard about the the format of completing notes for homework and completing worksheets in class but I am now a firm believer in this method of teaching. Mr. Bledsoe has prepared his online videos to be concise and informative while explaining exactly what the unit is about with little to no confusion using relateable, real life examples. Each video is easily manageable, averaging 15 minutes give or take, this allows ample time for those students who need to re-watch sections for better understanding. Tutors, parents, and other family members can easily use these videos as a resource to assist their student where many would otherwise be unable to help. His website is very well organized, easy to navigate, and provides online copies of all handouts to guarantee there is always one available from home. If every teacher adopted this method of teaching I truly believe there would be a rise in students grades as well as their understanding of the course material as a whole. Mr. Bledsoe has found an effective, interesting, and refreshing way to teach a subject that has often been viewed as frustrating and confusing by many students."

"Mr. Bledsoe, thank you so much for all your help!! I'm pretty sure I would be failing if my brother hadn't told me about your videos! I've checked all my [worksheet problems] already and missed hardly any, so it means I'm learning a lot. Thanks!!"

"As an ESL teacher, I am very impressed with Mr Bledsoe’s  math classes. He videotapes all of his lessons and puts them on his website which makes them available anytime for his students to review the material. Even my students who are not in his class watch his videos. Geometry is a very difficult class for ESL students so this extra support really helps them understand the material since they are able to watch his videos as many times as they need too. I have had students spend their lunches in my classroom just to watch his videos. I am very fortunate to work with Mr. Bledsoe.

"Mr. Bledsoe's virtual lessons are an excellent resource for my Advanced Functions and Modeling students who might not have a complete understanding of the topic in class and would like a chance to hear it again from a second source before starting homework."
- GMHS AFM teacher

"Whenever one of my students tells me they're having trouble with Geometry or AFM, I tell them about your videos. They're a great resource."

"The flipped format of your class saved us this semester. In the past we spent a lot of time trying to figure out what the assignment was and understanding the material that was lectured on at school so we could support our daughter if she got stumped by the homework. The flipped format allowed her to watch the entire lesson without distractions and replay any part she didn't understand. Then we were able to assist her when needed because we had access to all the videos. I wish more teachers would adopt this model."

"Mr. Bledsoe's flipped classroom is a great asset for [this student]. It gives him an opportunity to take in the information at his own pace."

"This class is very easy if you pay attention; I like the way Mr. B teaches with the math videos and how we do homework and classwork."
- former student

"I can't thank you enough for the way you organize your class. It's so helpful [for our daughter] to be able to watch a lecture more than once, pause and rewind, etc."
- parent

"Your videos and on line materials make a very good tool kit for tutoring! Thank you!"
- tutor of a former student


"I like the videos because if I don't understand something I can just go back and watch them again."
- former student

"I have learned more in this math class than I have in any other!"
- former student

"It was fun! Even though people say you're mean, I don't think so. I learned a TON! Thanks!
