Mathematics is not only important in and of itself but is also the foundation for many other subjects that your children will encounter throughout their years in school. Therefore, it is essential that they maintain a strong grasp of mathematical concepts at an early age. Most students have the potential to advance beyond their grade level, which will inevitably benefit them in their later years. So whether your child needs help keeping up with his or her coursework or has the ability to jump ahead, we have a program that is just right for your child.
What makes our programs effective is that we emphasize practicing strong arithmetic skills, as well as build students’ critical thinking skills through the use of challenging word problems. We also provide special test preparation courses that focus on improving SAT scores, state exam scores, and entrance exams for specialized science high schools. These courses focus more on practice and familiarizing the student with the different types of problems that show up on these respective exams.
Honors Math Program (5th-12th Graders)
Honors Math program is one of our best-selling programs. The first reason is that it pinpoints what the students’ weaknesses using our specially designed diagnostics test. The class aims to develop current competencies into algebraic mastery.
This is an integrated Algebra program that includes Pre-algebra, Algebra I and Algebra II. Honors Math program doesn’t go by grades, but by the students’ levels. The class pace can be according to students’ task skills. There are only three students in class, so teachers can give a fair amount of attention to each student.
Like in a health clinic where you find a disease and get cured, we do the same with students’ math skills: finding out their challenge and helping them master it.
Once students complete this program, they will be prepared to study for the SATs.
Critical Thinking Math (3rd – 5th Graders)
This program is designed to advance and sharpen students’ skills in mathematics accordingly to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This course is offered during summer vacation and again during the school year: The summer session class would be the intensive preview course for those who want to prepare for the coming elementary school year; however during Fall and Spring, the class will actually move at a similar pace as the students’ math classes in school to better prepare them for the upcoming tests. Topics are covered more in depth and students are provided with extra practice problems. Students also have the opportunity to apply what they are learning to more practical purposes by solving more challenging analytical problems. This helps them master the material thoroughly, which is essential to excel throughout the higher grade levels.
Math Workshop (6th – 12th Graders)
There has been lots of change in the school math curriculum in the last decade. The current school curriculum, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), requires students to demonstrate a deeper understanding of math concepts, which means teachers should have changed how they teach those concepts too. Our math workshop classes are small and interactive so that each student may participate easily in class discussions with the expert teacher. These courses offered for the summer would be the preview course for the coming school year. Those courses offered during the school year are more focused to enrich students’ comprehension by practicing extra problems in the small interactive class. Therefore, topics in the class will be similar to the school math classes and move at the similar pace as well to better prepare students for the upcoming tests.
Topics are covered more in depth, and students are provided with extra practice problems. Students will also have the opportunity to apply what they are learning to more practical purposes, as well as acquaint themselves with the types of problems that may show up on standardized tests. This helps them master the material thoroughly, which is essential to continuing to excel in high school math classes. At its conclusion, the student will be well-prepared for college entrance exams.
