“Thinkster has been an excellent addition to my children’s education. Everyone is professional, prompt and genuinely cares about students getting the most of their experience. Our tutor Erica is wonderful — she customizes her approach and assignments based on my kids’ two personalities. She’s a great motivator, but also holds them accountable. I would highly recommend Thinkster.”
- Liz F., Thinkster Parent
“We have found the program incredibly beneficial for our two children. Both have been able to move forward considerably within their cohort under Caroline's tutelage. Caroline is a very good tutor. She has a great rapport with the kids and is always very positive. The kids trust her to assist them. She is very responsive to any messages I send via Skype and I appreciate all her efforts.”
- Elissa T., Thinkster Parent
“[My son] likes her. He likes his tutor, he really does. Because of that, he looks forward to the sessions. He doesn’t think of it as work. It is math, but he’s getting to talk to someone who he feels some level of a connection with.”
“[My son] really feeds off that positive reinforcement… he’s a person that really needs to be poured into. He’s getting that, but he’s also getting the feedback he needs to be successful moving forward.”
“Anytime that she sees [my son] rush through work, she basically will text me and say, “Hey, why did he get 50% on this? Why did he rush through this? He obviously understands, but he’s not taking his time.” So she’s really on it!"
Once Natalia’s four children were out of the Montessori school system, their family decided that they needed to keep up the pace that they were doing with math.
They tried different programs for four or five years with their kids, but they still weren’t happy. They did not want a program that helped only with memorizing concepts, but wanted one that had more word problems and would make their kids think.
“My daughter really loves her tutor! I don’t know what the assessment process is, but I feel like we were paired with the perfect tutor for our student. She understands her mind, she understands her thought process (better than I do, I think). And she also encourages her in a way that our student really responds to.”
“The tutoring and the live video chat is fantastic. It’s funny… you see how a kid will listen to a third party. And you’re like, “Wow, I could never have her listen to me like that!” We’re parents, they’re not going to show you that same level… The teacher is still sacred at that elementary level. And she really wants to impress her, wants to do well.”
Your child gets an elite, highly-qualified math tutor who is dedicated to your child and delivers highly-impactful learning experiences.
Your child always works with one math tutor, who develops a learning plan customized to your child’s learning needs. This tutor is a highly-qualified math teacher and your own private coach. Your child works with one tutor, who is fully invested in your child’s learning improvements. Plus, your child develops a rapport by interacting with the same tutor every day!
The tutor also helps your child develop a wide variety of skills — such as organizational and communication skills. This helps your child become an effective, efficient, and respectful learner and thinker.
Your child’s math tutor is involved in your child’s learning plan and progress daily. (That means all seven days of the week!)
A half hour tutoring session with Thinkster is the equivalent of having a 1 hour session with another tutoring company. If your child shows up to a session with private math tutor, that tutor may spend the first 10 minutes figuring out what your child needs to review since their last session a week ago.
Thinkster tutors are incredibly prepared when they start sessions with their students! They are armed with data and insights into struggles your child may have had on their assignments. The very first minute your child interacts with their Thinkster tutor becomes a learning opportunity.
Why? Because the tutor does not need to spend time discovering what challenges your child may have had during the week. They’re already doing this every day of the week! They’ve been monitoring your child for the last six days (every day!) and bring that perspective to the one-on-one session.
Your child’s math tutor is a data scientist. They utilize technology and AI-driven insights to make smart decisions about your child’s learning plan.
Your child’s tutor uses their expertise, observations, and AI-driven insights to accelerate student performance outcomes. AI tracks important data, such as time-taken and accuracy, which our tutors review and use to help when developing the next set of assignments.
The combination of data-driven insights, enabled by AI and machine-learning capabilities, and our patent-pending Active Replay Technology (ART) are a powerful duo. As a data scientist, the tutor uses this information to understand more about your child’s performance.
While the tutor is the one who ultimately makes the decision on the direction of your child’s learning plan, they do use technology and data to their advantage to make smart learning plan decisions.
