    Note from our founder: “A proactive approach to learning is the key to success. Every parent knows that it is easier to maintain a child’s confidence rather than build it back up again. As a parent, one of our greatest desires is to help our child maximize their potential. This is what my parents did for me and this is what I did for my children. I am excited to announce the launch of our new program enabling us to do the same for your child!”

    We offer classes to perfectly complement any child’s learning at school. We offer grade-specific and highly interactive, fun Math Classes to build strong fundamentals. Weekly classes will discuss concepts from the Core Standards, not only teaching children how to solve problems but why to solve them in a particular manner. We want kids to realize that “Math is Not Magic.” There is a reason why 3/5 ÷ 4/7 = 3/5 x 7/4! We will also show them how to best express their work on paper to avoid careless errors/confusion.

    Even children earning an ‘A’ grade in school will be glad they came to our classes. We do not want your child to just blindly memorize facts and methods, as often occurs in school. Eventually, they will reach saturation. We want them to be able to CONJECTURE and DERIVE methods as needed.

    We will lead your child into discovering new concepts as an extension of previous concepts. Your child will have the edge they deserve and need to succeed. They will understand that math is a beautiful puzzle where all the pieces fit together to reveal the big picture. They will not be burdened with carrying around a bag of unrelated pieces that are becoming harder and harder to keep track of.

    Math is a powerful tool that teaches children to REASON, ANALYZE, and LOGICALLY SOLVE PROBLEMS. With these skills there is no limit to the opportunities that will open for your child in our techno-savvy 21st century marketplace.

    As parents, we never want to see our children lose confidence. Our classes are designed so that parents can be proactive and make sure that their child grows up with the skills and confidence they need and deserve to develop a life long love of learning math.

    With our classes, your child will start strong and stay strong! And our class format will ensure that they will enjoy the journey

     

    A Strong Foundation Today… A Limitless Tomorrow!

    Here you can see how a strong foundation allows even the youngest of children to quickly grasp advanced topics in math.

    Truly understanding the number line allows our Kindergartener to do integer math!

    Class Format

    Our goal is that by the time children are out of high school, they will be capable self-learners. But in the meantime, we want to make sure they develop a love of learning. No one likes to sit quietly filling out worksheets or conquering workbooks. 

    Our sessions are highly interactive and energetic. We are there to clarify their thought processes before incorrect patterns take root. We share their joy in that “Eureka!” moment when a concept suddenly makes sense. Children in our programs know that their instructor truly cares. 

    We will devote special time to areas that we know can be stumbling blocks for our young learners. In a classroom of thirty children, it is often not possible for a teacher to address or even recognize each student’s specific needs.

    A mini-group is the optimal environment for learning. We limit our sessions to just 4 children. There is no doubt that children remain more focused and motivated in the presence of other children. You won’t have to hear, “Why am I the only one taking extra math classes?” This also allows us to set up fun team challenges: the students vs. the instructor. (Somehow the instructor always seems to lose – but not without a fight!) Even our shyest children walk out of our sessions with a confident smile.

    We run these classes from Preschool through Algebra 1. Unfortunately, our girls are subject to the stereotypes surrounding math from a very young age. We have even heard a little Kindergarten girl state that boys are better at math than girls. When asked why she thought this, she said she had read it in a book! Many boys also develop an “I am just not good at math,” outlook and that is not fair to them. Time and again, it is because their foundation each year has gotten weaker due to gaps in understanding carrying over from the previous years.

    The sooner children are equipped with the appropriate tools, the more successfully they will build upon their skill set. Here is a Seattle Times article on math and preschoolers. Our classes can help a child excel in their current grade, take a look ahead, or take a second look at last year’s material.

    We want math to become a tool in your child’s hands and never feel like it’s a “hammer hitting them over the head.” It makes us so happy to hear our math students actually say, “This is fun! I like this…” Here, you can see some testimonials from our parents and students!
