Secrets for Mastering Math
Nine core principles that underpin our classroom culture. We share these with students so they can excel in math and use them to tackle life's challenges as well.
Every Child is Brilliant
As educators, we recognize each child's unique gifts and help them use those gifts to excel at math. Every child's strengths are valued in our classes. Students understand they belong.
Find Joy in Trying Hard Things
We encourage students to conquer fears, tackle difficult problems, and build perseverance.
Great Things are Done Together
Learning happens best when we work together, share ideas, and support each other.
Meaningful learning starts with curiosity. Our students ask questions, explore, and wonder.
Start Simple, Build Up
The best way to tackle a challenge is to break it down into smaller, simpler problems.
Play, Experiment, and Have Fun
Children thrive and learn through play. We have fun exploring puzzles and games.
There are No Mistakes, Only Lessons
We promote risk taking and remind students to view mistakes as part of the learning process.
There is Always More to Learn
Every question answered is an invitation to tackle a new question.
Answers Matter Less Than You Think
Answers matter, but answers in the absence of thinking are of limited value.
Learning happens effortlessly when we create an environment of love, safety, and trust, where everyone is curious and excited to learn together.
Hour-long, engaging, weekly classes where students tackle challenging problems and learn better ways to do math.
Our curriculum focuses on mental math and problem-solving because thinking always beats memorization.
All of our teachers are state certified and highly trained. They love kids and they love math.
Students earn 'experience points' for doing math and exhibiting positive behaviors. Points may be redeemed for fun prizes.
One-on-One Tutoring Included
Individualized sessions reinforce what is learned in class and help students excel.
Each class of up to 8 students becomes a team where students encourage each other and feel safe to make mistakes.
Clients Love Math Plus Academy
Best program ever. I teach math and science in a public school. I enrolled my son almost a year ago and I have seen amazing changes in self-confidence, and increase in strategies used, excitement about solving word problems, etc.
Best decision to bring our kids to Math Plus Academy. They have so much confidence in their math skills now and enjoy learning and going to class. Math Plus gets my highest recommnedation.
Thank you for creating online math enrichment classes! This was such a crucial thing for my son who has been attending Math Plus Academy since first grade and enjoys every bit of it.
My family likes everything about Math Plus, especially the way math is taught and the approaches they use to make kids understand math rather than just solving sums.
Founder's Message - Dr. Raj Shah
Math changed my life, partly because it opened doors to careers in science and engineering. But more importantly, math taught me how to think, how to solve problems, and how to persevere. I want to share that gift with every child.
Now, I travel the country working with school districts and math teachers to help them make math irresistible for kids.
