You want to make the right education choice for your child, and they want to learn and gain confidence along the way. With Thinkster, we offer elite and expert tutors and coaches along with a math tutor app, so your child can see results in as little as 10 weeks.
Imagine being able to understand what your child needs to succeed, be it compete in the math Olympiad or get help with school work. This is what we do, by quickly creating a baseline. We start with a simple Skills Assessment of your child to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
During a call or webinar, an Academic Advisor will answer questions and share the many benefits your child gets as a Thinkster! You will also complete a student learning goals questionnaire. This helps our advisors match your child to a dedicated math tutor.
We’ll match your child with an elite math coach, who is dedicated to your child’s success. She is your partner in your child’s academic progress and is responsible for picking the right math worksheets, grading them daily as well as offer 1:1 tutoring sessions each week.
Our expert math tutors are available to help your child with their homework problems. Our comprehensive test prep program ensures your child achieves better grades with greater confidence.
Every math worksheet is specifically crafted and curated for your child. We expect your child to complete about 10 worksheets each week. Our goal is not only to accelerate your child’s learning but also provide a solid foundation for achieving mastery in math.
Oh, you also get to request custom worksheets to help with school work or other specialized test prep. A separate playlist is created for you to follow-up on these as well.
Once your child submits a completed worksheet, our teachers will review and provide feedback along with helpful notes. Your dedicated teacher is available all 7 days a week to provide you concierge level assistance. After all, learning does not stop just because it’s a weekend ☺.
Your child’s coach is able to visualize student thinking process and provide specific feedback on the questions answered incorrectly. Understanding “why” your child makes mistakes helps our teachers swiftly accelerate their learning.
We are aligned to the Common Core Standards as well as to your child’s school curriculum. We constantly upgrade our curriculum to ensure that we can challenge our students with real world problems.
Students in Gold and Platinum plans connect with their dedicated coach for weekly whiteboard-drive tutoring sessions. They get 1:1 tutoring to review Thinkster assignments or get help with classwork or school homework or to help prepare for any upcoming competitive tests.
In addition to assistance from your dedicated tutor, tutorial videos are available for each worksheet. They explain multiple strategies to solve the same exact math problem, and minimize frustrations that your child would otherwise experience when they attempt to solve math problems.
Our extensive library of tutorial videos is always available to you and your child to browse through our collection by topic and concept name. It gives your child quick access to videos to help with Thinkster assignments, school homework, and test prep.
