We run math classes for Elementary and Middle School Math as well as Algebra 1. For Preschoolers, Kindergartners and First Graders, please refer to our Early Learning pages.
We have repeatedly found that small groups can actually be more effective than 1:1.
In small groups of only 2 – 4 students, children are automatically motivated to focus so that they can actively participate. They also want to do their homework because they know that their friends will do theirs. They genuinely enjoy the sessions and learn even more from each other’s questions/insights/mistakes. You never have to hear, “Why am I the only one going to tutoring?”
Please request to attend a complimentary class for one of our existing small groups!
Drop-in centers may seem convenient, but having a different tutor for each session can actually be inefficient and even confusing for your child. Also, the attention your child receives is very divided because all the children around them are studying different topics/subjects.
At Kids With an Edge, your child will be placed in a group where all the children are studying the same topic and your child will have a consistent instructor who will be able to really understand your child’s unique learning style and help them to grow from session to session. Our instructors genuinely care for and believe in your child. So many parents have told us that their child sees their instructor as a mentor and a role model.
In fact, all of our small groups are taught exclusively by our founder, Anu Jain. See what our parents have to say about her.
Our sessions are highly interactive and effective – no sitting quietly answering worksheets. Kids can do that at home…
We know that your child:
Elementary School Math, Middle School Math, Algebra 1
*55 minute session; 4 weeks/month; we may place up to 4 students in any group; all payments are non-refundable
Please contact us for details on space available in groups that are already running. If we do not already offer something that works for you, bring some friends and propose a small group!
Students are welcome to bring in their school curriculum to our sessions so that we may further customize our materials/approach to meet their specific needs. There is an annual school year customized curriculum support fee of $99 for all elementary school students. The summer curriculum support fee is $30 for all students. All tuition payments and fees are non-refundable.
During the elementary school years, we focus a lot on numeracy. Mental manipulations of numbers are imperative for speed and confidence throughout their school years and beyond. From the very beginning, we teach them techniques so that they no longer need to rely on their fingers. We have even taught our first graders to add 9+6 or subtract 15-7 mentally. Drilling basic addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts is essential to speed and accuracy in all future calculations. Understanding fractions is another big area of focus. In fact, we start introducing fractions in our Intro to math and our First Graders can adeptly compare fractions with different denominators! Based on grade level, we also focus on telling time, subtraction across zeroes, long division, story problems, etc.
Middle school is the last step before high school. It is here that your child really forms their identity and lasting impressions regarding math and this is also where they establish their foundation for the faster paced high school math classes. What your child achieves in middle school and how they feel about it, will impact the courses they take in high school and actually ultimately shape their career choices. It is imperative to give your child the skill set and confidence they need so that they don’t inadvertently limit their future opportunities. A strong foundation today … a limitless tomorrow!
