Have any of you used these? MathtutorDVD or MathonDVD's?

I was thinking of getting mathtutorDVD, it looks really good and seems affordable too.

THis is for my sons 11 and 10. I am looking at the arithmatic, which seems to cover a lot!! And I like that it is so visual and clear.  I am not great at explaining concepts and I do not love math :( 

Currently 10 yr old is doing singapore and has great math skills, ds 11 has a more challenging time. mammoth math multiplication workbook has helped him with times tables.

I would like to hear from anyone who has used any of these DVD's. It  kinda looks like it could work for both my boys(and me!!) but I really need to hear some feedback before I buy :)

The quick answer is Mathondvds.com videos are superior to mathtutordvds. Jason Gibsons from mathtutordvd does have teaching talent but his videos are why too short and does not cover all the material. Also, it's bad enough that his videos are short in length, but then he talks too much and actually does little math. Professor Gottlieb from mathondvds is a college math professor who has the best teaching talent I have ever seen. He knows the easiest way to solve any math problem and explains it amazingly well. On top of that his videos covers all the material that should be covered and works out hundreds of examples.
