OUR BELIEFS ABOUT MATH
Math matters, in school and in life.
Math proficiency impacts a child’s academic and career opportunities. It promotes critical thinking and teaches problem-solving. Success in math supports success in life.
Anyone can succeed in math.
Children are not hardwired to be good or bad at math. With the right materials, the right instruction, and the right support, any child can learn, enjoy, and thrive in math.
Math is fun.
Learning math and solving math problems are fundamentally stimulating, rewarding, and fun activities. Although math mastery is a serious subject, we know how to keep the process fun.
OUR BELIEFS ABOUT LEARNING
True understanding leads to higher performance and lasts a lifetime.
Building a child’s foundational understanding supports progressive learning, higher performance, and long-term retention.
Individualized instruction is the best way to address a child’s unique learning needs.
We tailor our approach with personalized lesson plans and engaging, face-to-face instruction to support each child exactly where they need it most.
People are the best teaching technology.
There’s nothing better than a well-trained, enthusiastic, and compassionate instructor to motivate achievement, provide emotional support, and celebrate student success.
Learning is a lifelong process.
Mastering math doesn’t happen overnight. Learning compounds with ongoing training. And the investment of time and energy pays lasting dividends.
