The Math Edge - Tuition

We are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals for your child.

  • Very Small Groups- Optimal environment for learning.
    • 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 learn even more from each others’ questions/insights/errors.
    • Gain more confidence when they realize that everyone experiences times of confusion.
    • 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.
  • Consistent Instructor and Grade Specific. Drop-in centers may seem convenient on the surface, 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 subjects/levels.

    At Kids With an Edge, your child will be placed in a small 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.

  • Highly Interactive and Engaging. No one likes to sit quietly filling out worksheets or conquering workbooks. We share their joy in that “Eureka!” moment when a concept suddenly makes sense. Children in our programs know that their instructor truly cares.

  • Parental Support. After every elementary level class we meet with parents to share the exact terminology and techniques we taught in class so that parents can effectively support their child throughout the week.

  • Customized Classes with Material to Practice New Skills. Each week, we customize the class content for each small group of children and provide material each week so that your child can practice their new skills. Practice really does make perfect!

  • Complement the School Curriculum.
    Our classes can be used to either help your child:
    • Excel in their current grade.
    • Take a look ahead.
    • Or take a second look at last year’s material and fill in the gaps.
  • Attention to Thought Processes. Very small class sizes allow us to clarify your child’s thought processes before incorrect patterns take root. We don’t just ask your child to calculate the answer, but also ask them to explain how they arrived at the answer.
  • Prove that “Math is NOT Magic”– not only teaching children how to solve problems but why to solve them in a particular manner. We will lead your child into discovering new concepts as an extension of previous concepts. They will understand that math is a wonderful 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 manage. We will also show them how to best express their work on paper to avoid careless errors/confusion.
  • Eliminate Common Misconceptions. Based on experience, we know exactly what areas to address and how to make sure your child understands the key basics every step of the way. We intentionally explore corner cases and ask questions in class that require your child to dig deeper…
  • Focus on Building Numeracy in the Elementary School Years.  We never want kids to rely on their fingers.  We teach them to truly understand numbers. Even our first graders can mentally add 9+7 or subtract 15-8! We start learning how to memorize our multiplication tables as soon as first grade. Numeracy is an imperative foundation for fractions, story problems and so much more…
  • Clearly Explain Advanced Concepts. 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. Even children earning an ‘A’ grade in school are glad they came to our classes!
  • Designed to Build Confidence. We believe confidence is imperative to success. In order to succeed, a child needs to believe they can succeed!
