I would give Time4Learning a try! My daughter is a visual learner and this computer based program has really made learning so much easier for her. It is also very cheap! less than $20 amonth and all you pay is month to month so you can buy when you need it, break when you want. Also it grades and record keeps for you, which is so nice. Plus, they allow you 3 grade levels at once (like you can have 1,2 & 3  or 6,7 & 8 etc)

I hope this helps :)
