OUR UNIQUE AND INDIVIDUALLY RESPONSIVE PROGRAM

- meets each student where they are in math and carries them to their goals at their own pace

- relaxed, comfortable, and distraction free learning environment

- a digitally efficient, user friendly pathway which affords the student and the tutor a dynamic real time learning profile

- flexible scheduling and location arrangements

MAIN OBJECTIVE

competitive application of mathematics as college graduates

In the mad dash to teach math at a minimal standard with the practical goal of achievement in standardized tests, both at school and at the most well known learning centers, students fail to grasp basic concepts that are necessary in order to learn how to apply higher level math to real world problems. That is why standardized achievement tests in high school do not test for this. Most private learning centers use achievement test results to prove the efficacy of their programs.

A much better indicator of career success in the application of math is the level of proficiency the student acquires in higher level math BEFORE COLLEGE. Only a small minority of students set out to achieve real proficiency in calculus while in high school. Most are too busy prepping for the SAT/ACT. The main reason for this is that they have acquired too many cracks and holes in their ability and understanding of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. These students miss the enjoyment of learning these subjects, which otherwise amounts to nothing more than a boring mental exercise.

A college graduate with a BA in any science use to be a formidable promise for the ability to apply math on the job. Today, most competitive enterprises who have a demand for researchers and technological development assert that they cannot find enough capable candidates as college graduates in the United States. What they are missing is the ability to apply critical thinking in mathematics in a competition to bring innovation to the market.

METHOD

- initial assessment - to determine the best place to start
- custom dashboard - for work input, access of resources, and communication with mentor
- on line real time collaboration - visual and audio while mentor and student work through problems together
- scaled level of assistance - variety of media and references pertinent to each problem
- problem recognition strategy - analysis of problem type
- mentoring for understanding - math in general and the context of the topic pertinent to the problem

GET THE BALL ROLLING AND REQUEST A CONSULTATION !

Any student, parent, or guardian can schedule a consultation.

A student and at least one parent or guardian must be present for students under age 18.

Any other supportive adult is welcome.

If possible, bring the student's latest math homework, test, and current learning materials.

We not only assess ability but we lend equal importance to

UNDERSTANDING

both the understanding about the nature of math in general and also the specific understanding

of basic math concepts along the continuum of math complexity from Algebra I through

AP Calculus

CONFIDENCE

about how much math the student believes they have learned and what specific challenges are most intimidating

MOTIVATION

from the student's perception of the importance and relevance of higher level math

From installation and orientation to software and utilities

We clear up the confusions and fill in the knowledge gaps in prior math subtopics
