I was a teacher for over 25 years. I still own and operate a tutoring service specializing in Math, Science and Test Preparation in Tampa, FL. One of the hardest things for me as a classroom teacher was to realize that I had one or a few students that weren’t ready to move on to the next skill. Maybe they were missing a pre-requisite skill or maybe they just needed a bit more practice. But, as a classroom teacher, I had to move on. There was a whole list of topics to be presented that school year whether the students truly mastered them or not. We had to KEEP GOING! As a tutor, I was able to address those topics that students needed help with but student's busy schedules often made it difficult to schedule consistent sessions.
With this program you can spend as much time reviewing a skill as you need. Your teacher may keep going but you can use this tool to look back and practice until you master a skill.
Math is an upside down pyramid. You start with a few simple skills: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Each year the number of skills grows and grows. Why does that matter? If you have a gap in your knowledge from a prior year, it impacts your success more and more as you move on.
I believe it is those gaps in their foundations that causes so many students to think that they are “bad” at math or are “just not math people.” With the explosion of STEM careers, math literacy is a huge part of the future. By allowing students the ability to review topics as needed, this program provides a way to strengthen a student’s foundation and help them gain the confidence they need to become “math people.”
