## Here’s Our Research-Driven Foundational 7-Step Method That Has Been Making Math Champions Across the World

step1/7

### Teach Math In a Way That Will Make Your Child Remember It For Life.

Media 1 is a video explaining how to teach math to kids so that they remember it for life

#### The Old Way

• In the old way, students were required to memorize steps to solve problems. They made students do math repetitively, and without any guidance to understand the “why” behind the methods used to solve problems.
• Students were not exposed to the fact that each problem could have been solved using other strategies.

#### The New Way

• Teach students to use multiple methods and strategies to use to solve math problems. Teach them why certain strategies work. Expose them to multiple ways of solving different kinds of problems - including computational, analytical reasoning, and critical thinking problems.
• It is also important to make sure that students consistently get to practice math problems that involve the application of multiple strategies. When they consistently practice problems, learning math skills and concepts can be like learning a new sport - the more learners practice, the better they become.

#### The Old Result

• Students did not understand why they were using a particular approach to solving problems,
• They got proficient in solving specific problem types but when they were confronted with word problems or those involving critical or analytical reasoning, they were lost and easily got frustrated. They lost confidence in their own abilities despite feeling like they worked hard.

#### The New Result

• They become better problem solvers, and are able to easily adapt and solve newer problems because their reasoning abilities have improved.
• They are less stressed and anxious about solving problems that appear to be new as they are able to unpack them using foundational first principles, break the problem down to discrete steps, and pick the appropriate approach to solving the math problem.

A world-class curriculum, designed and developed to ensure comprehensive understanding of the “why” behind every concept is critical to build a rock solid foundation in math.

A lack of practice solving math problems that teach multiple ways of solving each problem is another principal reason students fail in math.

### Researchers In Neuropsychology Have Found Three Specific Domains That Are Most Clearly Associated With Poor Math Performance

• Many types of research have found that the reason why most students fail in math is not because they are inherently bad in math, or they don’t have an aptitude for math, or that they are afraid of math; they fail because they were not taught math correctly and did not understand the reason behind everything.
• There are specific reasons why just memorizing solutions to math problems simply does not work for many students. A review of neuropsychological research1 in math skills has found that many low achievers in math show weaknesses in skills that fall under the umbrella term executive function.
A
##### Working Memory
• Have you ever gone shopping without a list, thinking you’ll remember everything you need…but realize when you get home that you forgot several items? If this has never happened to you, you’ve experienced the limitations of working memory. Working memory is the mental sticky-notes we use to keep track of information until we need to use it.
• Students use working memory to hold the new information of a word problem in their mind while connecting their prior knowledge on math fluency facts, such as addition and subtraction.
• Unfortunately working-memory is not in endless supply. It is possible to “overload” working memory. As math problems become longer, more involved, and procedurally complex, working memory is tasked to a greater degree. Students must remember multiple facts, procedures, and flexible strategies for solving problems at once.

If students can remember as few things as needed as possible, but derive other facts when needed in solving problems, they no longer have to overload their working memory. Learning math strategies is a HUGE help with the reduction of cognitive load.

B

#### Mental Flexibility

• Solving math problems requires conceptualizing multiple solutions and choosing the best course of action. It also requires the ability to reflect upon already completed work, determine if the answer appears correct, and take new actions to self-correct if necessary. These steps require considerable mental flexibility.
• Students can learn this skill through mental and written modeling. With this approach students can think about the various approaches, try them out by writing them down, and see if their approaches are likely to make them arrive at the right solution.
C

#### Automaticity

• There is clear research evidence that “developing fluency of math facts and automaticity of math operations helps to improve math achievement.” The Automatic Information Processing Model states that we only have a certain amount of cognitive capacity at any given time.
• Completing math work relies heavily on working memory. So, if students are not fluent with math facts (example: using fingers to solve basic addition problems), they do not have any additional “cognitive space” for their working memory to complete any higher order thinking or problems. Students can build fluency by practicing multiple math problems using different strategies for problem-solving. By understanding the “why” behind the use of specific strategies, they will be better able to devote some of their cognitive load to executive functioning skills.

step2/7

### Hyper-Personalize Content for Your Child

Media 2 above is a video explaining how to hyper-personalize content for your child.

#### The Old Way

• Before, when you wanted to get custom curated math worksheets or assignments specifically designed for your child, you would have to download them from the internet or join other tutoring programs like Kumon, Mathnasium, Sylvan or others who did not have the ability to curate them for your child.

#### The New Way

• But now, with digital technologies that are available, you can get customized digital worksheets that are personalized to your child. Because of this personalization, your child can get specific worksheets that are tailored to the specific concept areas that need improvement. This also ensures that your child will not get worksheets that are too easy or too difficult, making them work on topic areas that are both appealing to them and motivates them to continue to work on areas that they can demonstrably show improvement.

#### The Old Result

• Since these worksheets were not tailored to your child’s specific needs, your child became bored if the worksheets were too easy, or frustrated if they were too difficult, making your child lose interest easily.
• Plus, since these were paper based worksheets with no ability to track how your child did in them or get any insights or intelligence about their work, it would be difficult for you to constantly evaluate which topics your child is already showing proficiency in and which ones your child will need additional help. You can do this manually, but most parents end up not doing this given that it is tedious, time consuming and the labored effort is simply not sustainable on a consistent basis.

#### The New Result

• This really motivates your child as they can measurably see that they are consistently improving, covering new ground, and making progress - enabling them to become engaged and confident learners.
• The added impact is that you are able to accelerate your child’s learning without having the hassle to download them from websites or get them from other learning centers and doing the tedious and labored work.

• Custom curated math worksheets tailor made for each student is critical to accelerate learning and maintain student engagement.
• What each student needs to learn now and next should uniquely be decided by how well they do with their assigned work.

#### The Goldilocks Tasks - Sweet Spot for Flow & Mastery Daniel Pink, Author of “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us”

• In his book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, Daniel Pink indicates that everyone who works on any topic reaches a flow state, where people feel accomplished about their achievements.
• He essentially states that people aren’t seeking to be lazy, but would in fact pursue a feeling called ‘Flow’, a feeling that comes about when we are ‘stretched to our limits… to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile’
• He calls these activities as the ‘Goldilocks tasks’, in that they aren't too easy and they aren’t too hard. This feeling of Flow therefore tends to occur at the boundary of anxiety and boredom.

#### So, How Do The Goldilocks Tasks Apply To Learning Math?

Imagine, as a parent, someone walks up to you and asks you to show if you can count aloud from 1 to 100. Of course, you can easily do this, but you would be wondering what the purpose would be and would find this to be a totally pointless and boring exercise.

On the flip side, imagine this same person walks over to you and asks if you can tell them how many Saturdays there are between January 1st, 1980 and December 31st, 2019. You will probably immediately determine that this is too hard of an exercise and might abandon the task.

But what you are given a math problem that is slightly challenging, but not too difficult — like how many Saturdays are there in 2020? What if it uses a majority of what you already know? What if it contains an element of thinking that gets you excited and also reasonably confident that you could solve this problem? This is this golden zone between anxiety and boredom that gets your juices flowing. You have a sense of accomplishment as soon as you complete this exercise and you’ll feel good about yourself. How would you feel if you were to answer these questions now?

Hyper-personalization is the science of letting your child work on the “Goldilocks tasks” or “Just right math assignments/worksheets” at any given time. This enhances student engagement, motivation, development of positive attitudes, and ability to accelerate learning at the most optimal pace.

#### Students Excel When Operating In The Zone of Proximal Development Zone of Proximal Development was developed by Soviet psychologist Lev Vygotsky (1896 – 1934)

Teachers need to know what concepts each student -

• knows
• can work on with some help
• will struggle with if given too soon

to move them through the zone of proximal development and accelerate learning.

#### So, What Is The Point?

Every student needs to get personalized assignments that are targeted to their needs.

Absent this kind of a personalized approach, your child may continue to be at risk in not delivering the math improvements that you are seeking.

When we apply this approach, the student performance improvement is staggering.

As a parent, how can you solve for this hyper-personalization approach? Stick around for a bit and you will find out.

step3/7

### Get a Dedicated Elite Tutor or DIY

Media 3 above is a video explaining how an elite coach can transform your child’s performance.

#### The Old Way

• Before, you got tutors to be with your child a few times a week - either at a tutoring center or at your home.
• No tutor was available to monitor and grade your child’s work everyday of the week.
• At the tutoring center, your tutor will teach your child along with a few other students at the same time, diluting the attention your child got in the tutoring hour.
• If your child needed help during the week, your child had to wait for the next tutoring session in the week to get help from the tutor.

#### The New Way

• But now, with digital technologies available, you can have a dedicated tutor assigned to your child who will ensure that your child’s learning objectives and goals are met.
• You no longer need to go to a tutoring center and you can even connect with a tutor using remote video conferencing tools from anywhere.
• Your dedicated tutor can pick and assign tailor made worksheets and assignments to your child and can monitor, provide feedback, and grading on your child’s work everyday of the week
• You no longer have to fill in for your tutor on days you did not have a tutor available

#### The Old Result

• Private tutoring was very expensive with very little personalization on a daily basis.
• You and your child were frustrated with lack of timely help and support and as a parent it was too demanding on your own time to fill in for a tutor and provide help to your child.

#### The New Result

• Your child becomes a confident learner very quickly given that support from a dedicated tutor is available everyday of the week.
• Your child’s math scores start to improve dramatically over a short period of time with all the motivation, coaching, and specific feedback from an elite tutor.

• Daily monitoring, grading, and feedback from an elite tutor, assigned specifically for each student, is essential to achieve superlative performance improvements. This is no different than the personalized coaching that Tennis champions get to improve their game.
• Weekly 1:1 contact with a tutor for tutoring/coaching for clarifications on school work, homework, or any test prep help, is significant for improving confidence and thus student performance.

#### Tutoring Has Outsized Impact on Student Performance Improvement

• Professor Bloom, Univ. of Chicago and Northwestern University, is an incredibly well known education researcher.
• In his most influential research on the impact of tutoring, he found a jaw dropping performance improvement - average students (who were at the 50th percentile in class) were able to move to the top of the class (performers in the 95th to 98th percentile) after getting tutored.

#### Bill Walsh - Coach, San Francisco 49ers

• Walsh led his team to 5 Super Bowl championships in 14 years, one of the greatest achievements in sports history.
• Walsh inherited a dysfunctional 49er team and organization that had gone 2–14 in the season prior to Walsh’s arrival.
• Within 18 months of his 2–14 first season as 49ers head coach, Walsh led his team to win its first Super Bowl. And then he proceeded to lead the team to win another 4 Super Bowls in the next 14 years. How did he do it?

#### Bill Walsh’s Gospel

Expect defeats, but “stand up and fight again.”

Focus on continuous improvement, not victory.

Prepare, perform consistently, own the details.

#### Rafael Nadal, Tennis Champion - Also Has A Coaching Team But Why Does He Have a Coach Even Though He is Already a Champion?

Currently ranked in the World’s top 3 players in men's singles tennis. Nadal has won 19 Grand Slam singles titles, the second-most in history for a male player, as well as a record 35 ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles, 20 ATP Tour 500 titles and the 2008 Olympic gold medal in singles.

#### Tony Robbins Has Coached These People - Because They Want Their Tomorrow to Be WAY BETTER than their TODAY!

• Tony Robbins is recognized as the most impactful and popular self-help coaches in the world. He grew up very poor. His stepfather, who was working as a salesman, struggled to take care of the family and often couldn’t even afford to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.
• He is the author of several best-selling books including, Money: Master the Game and Awaken the Giant Within. He has coached some of the most successful people in the world including celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Leonardo DiCaprio, CEO of Salesforce Marc Benioff, and President Bill Clinton to name a few.

#### There Are 5 Clear Reasons Why Having A Personal Coach Works To Deliver Improved Math Results

Help your child face any fear - have someone available to help with anxiety and face any fear of math your child may have.

Focus on your child’s specific goals - identifying and making sure that your child’s specific goals continue to remain the focus everyday.

Making your child accountable - to ensure that they are following up with your child on a regular basis to confirm that your child gets their work done.

Daily Monitoring & Feedback - someone who watches your child daily to ensure that they get help with trouble spots every day. This helps your child remain on track

Create a personalized plan - to achieve success and become a math champion

When you've found your elite dedicated tutor, you can guarantee that your child will begin to show amazing performance improvement.

In 3 months, your child will begin to surpass their peers. In 6 months, your child’s scores will have improved by 90%. And in a year, your child will be placed into Honors.

When you combine a highly motivated child with a elite dedicated tutor, you can achieve 90% improvement in math scores within 3-6 months.

step4/7

### Achieve Mastery & Accelerate Learning By Getting Insights Into Your Child’s Performance

Media 4 above is a video explaining what it means to get insights into your child’s performance.

#### The Old Way

• Private tutoring was very expensive with very little data-driven personalization on a daily basis.
• To get insights into your child’s progress, you had to physically visit and speak with someone at a retail learning center. Or, you would have to ask your private tutor who comes home for insights which were mostly only verbally given.
• In the absence of clear data available to track, since only manual tutoring methods were employed, your child did not get any personalized attention on a weekly basis. Or, your child was subjected to a drill and kill approach and was repeatedly asked to complete math worksheets that was not personalized, leading to frustration and dislike of math help using tutors or tutoring companies.

#### The New Way

• But now, with digital performance monitoring tools, you can monitor your child’s progress with weekly and monthly reports. These reports highlight specific areas that your child needs to focus on to accelerate learning outcomes. You also can have access to a knowledge mastery matrix that dynamically gets updated each time your child makes progress.
• Mastery learning ensures students obtain mastery in a given topic before moving on to the next unit. Any student following this approach can reach high levels of achievement given sufficient instruction, time and perseverance”
• You can now have a smartphone app that gives you insights and information about your child’s daily activities, have the ability to actually review the grading and feedback on problems from your child’s dedicated tutor, as well as email/text/call your tutor.
• It’s easy to fall in love with progress when there is trust, credibility, authenticity, and transparency.

#### The Old Result

• You had no access to detailed and clear weekly or monthly reports that was shared with you to continuously update you on your child’s progress.
• If you wanted to understand how your child was progressing in math, you had no ability to do this other than paying for some private one-time diagnostic assessments. You had no access to periodic reports that told you how well your child is performing on specific topics and concepts. You also did not have access to how well your child was performing compared with the performance of their peers.

#### The New Result

• Weekly assignments give students a sense of accomplishment and a sense of movement through the curriculum. Timely, monitoring and appropriate follow-up increases student success. Successful students show positive attitudes and enjoy learning more because of their success.
• You no longer need to be in the dark about your child’s performance on a daily or weekly basis.
• You have access to insights and information transparently because tutoring services need to show and demonstrate performance improvement as data and insights sharing becomes table stakes and just the way things should be.

#### Get Insights Into Your Child’s Performance To Achieve Mastery & Accelerate Learning

• Hire tutors who can give you daily or weekly insights on what your child needs to do to gain mastery in math. Getting access to more frequent data driven insights quicker, better, faster - is a huge advantage to improving student learning outcomes. Mastery learning ensures students obtain mastery in a given topic before moving on to the next unit. It is the approach that allows students to reach high levels of achievement given sufficient instruction, time and perseverance.
• Ability to track and monitor performance improvement, from anywhere and at anytime, is important. It tells you that your child’s efforts are being rewarded and helps maintain student effort and gain confidence in the process being followed. This helps to accelerate progress and achieve learning goals for your child in the shortest time possible.

#### “Mastery learning ensures students obtain mastery in a given topic before moving on to the next unit. Any student following this approach can reach high levels of achievement given sufficient instruction, time and perseverance”.

• Over a 50 year period, 1000+ articles and publications involving over 22,373 students conclusively proved that Mastery Learning worked to -
• Boost achievement levels
• Improve positive attitudes in students
• Give students more confidence when they’re learning new concepts.
• The effectiveness of mastery-based testing is increased when the amount of feedback on mastery tests/assignments is increased.
• The effectiveness of mastery testing is related to the rigor with which it is implemented.

#### Be in the know. Come to the easy way of life and learning with Thinkster!

Cohen (1987) observed that large instructional gains are possible when the curriculum, the instruction, and the measures of student progress are aligned.

Such alignment facilitates -

• Increased instructional efficiency, because instructional activities are clearly focused.
• Student gains, because of the clear relationship between teacher effort and student outcomes
• Positive student attitudes, because students are more likely to react positively to instruction that demonstrates a clear and consistent relationship between student investment in instruction and student test results.

#### Without Data Driven Insights, Mastery Learning Is Not Possible

• Many students fail in math not because they are not capable of being great math learners, or they are inherently challenged to understand math...
• They simply are not diagnosed to understand what their unique challenge areas in math.
• They are not clinically analyzed to understand what specific areas they struggling in and what is needed to improve their scores. This is where you need specific data-driven insights.
• Or they are taught by math tutors or joined tutoring companies that simply do not have the data to hyper-personalize their approach to each student

step5/7

### Make Sure That Your Child Gets Timely Assistance When They Solve Problems

Media 5 above is a video explaining why students need to get timely assistance when solving math problems.

#### The Old Way

• Before, if your child wanted help with any math problem, you would have to go online searching for math “how-to” videos or pick a textbook to teach yourself the same math and then help your child.
• Before, with Kumon, Mathnasium or other tutoring programs, you never got a dedicated tutor who would watch how your child was solving the problems each day or provide daily feedback. Because no one was assigned to watch your child’s work, you had no other choice than to hire an expensive private tutor who would sit with your child and watch them do the work to provide timely feedback or you had to do it yourself. And even these private tutors will not be available to monitor, provide daily grading and feedback.

#### The New Way

• Now, with digital technologies that are available, every worksheet can comes with multiple videos, each teaching different ways of solving a particular math problem that your child is working at that moment!
• You can also have access to concept tutorial videos just in case your child wants to brush up on some foundational theories about the math problem in front of them.
• But now, tutors from anyplace are able to visualize how your child solved each and every math problem without the need to hire expensive at-home private tutors or do the work yourself. This allows tutors to quickly understand not only what mistakes are being made by your child but why they were made.
• Given tutor’s are able to watch how your child is solving each problem, they are able to give specific, descriptive, actionable and timely feedback to your child - thus improving your child’s performance.
• Since AI and machine learning tools are available, a digitally driven tutoring program is able to use advanced technologies to accelerate your child’s math learning.

#### The Old Result

• Your child will be frustrated with no immediate help available when they solve math problems on a daily basis. They will have to wait for the next scheduled meeting with a tutor at home or at a tutoring center to get math help.
• If your child is stuck on a concept, because of the lack of timely support they will be unable to progress to the next set of problems, thus slowing their progress considerably.
• Your child’s will begin to hate math, because everytime they sit down to solve math problems, they will run into some difficulty or the other, and have a negative experience because of the lack of timely support. When these negative experiences build on each other, it leaves your child feeling that math must be a bad subject to tackle.

#### The New Result

• When student frustration is minimized to zero, all energies are focused on math and confidence improvement and none on remaining frustrated.
• This new approach allows tutors to accelerating learning curves for every student, and with technology like this, you know that you get this extraordinary benefit and the satisfaction that you now have your child’s academic success all but guaranteed

• Research Says - “Good Feedback Is Targeted, Specific, Timely” and that feedback should be within 24 to 48 hours.1
• Specifically, among several studies, research from National Institutes of Health (NIH) observed that those who received immediate feedback saw a significant increase in performance compared to those who received delayed feedback.2

#### Over 40 Years Of Research Confirms Timely Assessment & Feedback Cycle Has Significant Impact on Student Performance

Figure 1. Comparison of formative assessment and summative assessment impact on student achievement

Darling-Hammond (2008) asserts that using feedback and formative assessment continuously has immeasurable implications for effective learning.

Assessing student learning continuously, and providing clear and constant feedback leads to significant gains in student performance.

Researchers, like Nicol and MacFarlane-Dick, suggest that crafting multiple low-stakes assignments creates positive motivational beliefs and self esteem among students. These help students gauge progress and achievements rather than focusing on success or failure.

#### Timely Help is Critical

If your child doesn’t know something and you are not able to give timely help, it will only frustrate your child. Make sure that whenever your child is working on new concepts, you are available or have a private tutor available to not just explain concepts, but how to solve problems involving those concepts.

step6/7

### Ensure That Your Child Remains Engaged

Media 6 above is a video explaining what student engagement means and why it matters.

#### The Old Way

• Before, your child’s math work was not tailored to their specific needs. If the math work was too easy your child would get bored. If the work was too difficult, your child would get frustrated, making them lose interest easily.
• Worksheets were generally paper-based and gave no ability to track how your child did in them or get any insights or intelligence about their work.
• If your child had questions about a math problem, they would have to wait for the next tutoring session at a learning center or wait for a private tutor’s next visit home.
• Manual methods used for tutoring your child meant that there was not gamification elements,

#### The New Way

• But now, you can get customized digital worksheets that are personalized and tailored to the specific concept areas that need improvement. This ensures that your child will not get worksheets that are too easy or too difficult, motivating them to continue to work on areas that they can demonstrably show improvement.
• The gamified approach to learning using digital environments has made it relatively easy to reward students for showing positive behavior that helps them accelerate math learning. Students can get points for showing up and doing math everyday, and also get bonus points for consistent right answers without any second attempts, streak of right answers, double the points if they complete their last few questions in a worksheet quickly, etc.
• It is also easy for students to compare themselves with how other students are performing using a leaderboard. They can see who within their grade level, across their state, country or the world are getting more points than them.

#### The Old Result

• Tutoring sessions were not enjoyable to your child since there was a lack of personalization of work to meet their needs.
• It was difficult to keep your child motivated and because of this they lose focus, develop a negative attitude towards math, which prevents accelerated learning.

#### The New Result

• This really motivates your child as they can measurably see that they are consistently improving, covering new ground, and making progress - enabling them to become engaged and confident learners.
• With the ability to add video game design and game elements in learning environments, student enjoyment and engagement is maximized by capturing their interest and motivating them to continue learning.

#### When your child remains engaged, they do not get frustrated and remain focused on completing their work. Progress is automatic.

• Engagement is typically defined as attention to the area of focus, active participation in learning, and time on task.
• A vast body of research has confirmed a strong correlation between student engagement and achievement.
• Research has demonstrated that engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful learning experiences.
• Studies have reported that student engagement and academic performance are influenced by self-efficacy, educational aspirations, parental expectations, and parental educational involvement.

#### "Expectancy-Value Model" of Learning When Students Think What They're Learning Is Relevant To Their Lives, They Give It Greater Value

Group A students improved their course grades compared with controls and were more interested in taking science classes in the future (Science, 2009).

#### No. Your Engagement Needs to Be Constant

Let’s look at an example of engagement.

Suppose you are playing a game of soccer with your friends at school. Imagine the ball is being kicked around and every team is trying to score a goal.

Do you just wait for the ball to come to you and then hope that you will be ready to kick it at that time?

Or, do you keep track of the ball, who is kicking it, which direction it is being kicked and how the ball finally gets to you?

It’s likely to be the latter, as what you do to kick the ball depends entirely on who passed the ball to you, for what reason, and what was their expectation of your action when that ball was passed to you. This means that you not only had to be absorbed in every kick that was made for the previous 10-15 minutes, but you are also acutely aware of the scoreboard and what is expected out of you to change or influence the score in your team’s favor.

This is how student engagement needs to be as well. Are they anticipating what is going to come next, why they are being asked to work on a particular set of math problems, and what the likely outcomes are going to be. Is your child being rewarded for this behavior? If your child does not understand all these and is not motivated to put this behavior into practice each day, you may see a lack of engagement.

#### Similarly, Parents Need To Remaining Engaged As Well

There is sufficient and strong evidence to show that when parents are heavily engaged or connected to their child’s work, there is a significant increase in student performance.

Your own engagement sends subtle and not-so subtle signals to your child about what is important and what is not. They take cues from your emotions as well.

#### Rewards, Recognition, Personalization - All Lead to Motivated Kids

• Is your child anticipating what is going to come next, why they are being asked to work on a particular set of math problems, and what the likely outcomes are going to be?
• Is your child being rewarded for this behavior as well?
• If your child does not understand all of these and is not motivated to put this behavior into practice each day, you may see a lack of engagement from your child.

step7/7

### Make Learning Math Convenient

#### Research Has Validated That Students Performed Significantly Better In Cognitive Achievement When Using Technology For Learning Convenience.

This is not surprising at all as students tend to perform better with the added convenience and benefits of technology. They get the following immediate benefits -

• Anytime, anywhere access to resources like online video tutorials and similar example problems - helps with timeliness in understanding concepts and solving problems.
• Ability to interact with tutors on demand - reduces stress and anxiety of students.
• Improved real-time communications with tutors and/or student partners - enables improvement in confidence and a “can-do” feeling.

#### The Old Way

• Before, with Kumon, Mathnasium and other tutoring programs, you either had to take your child to a retail learning center to get help.
• This forced you to pick 1 or 2 days each week to visit the learning center with your child.
• At each visit to the learning center, you were never guaranteed that you will get the same tutor. Moreover, you either dropped your child at the center to run errands or you sat outside waiting for your child to complete the tutoring session. You had no idea how well your child was doing, or what they were struggling with and just hoped that personalized learning was happening.

#### The New Way

• In the Netflix world we all live in, you no longer have to go anywhere and can get digital tutoring that is personalized for your child from the comfort of your home, backseat of a car, or even from an airplane. You can get digital tutoring in all the places you have used Netflix!
• Just like Netflix movies, worksheets can be digitally delivered to any device you have. Your child not only can complete the worksheets without any availability of wifi once you sync all the new worksheets, but can also watch related videos, complete the work, and then get to see feedback appear magically from your dedicated tutor each day!
• You get a dedicated coach assigned to your child whose only objective is to make your child a math champion. You get a lot of data throughout your engagement telling you exactly how your child is progressing in math.

#### The Old Result

• The only guarantee was that your paid your tutoring fees each month. No one guaranteed that your child will show performance improvement. They all told you it was up to your child and you to put the effort, but no one gave you a definitive path you could follow to guarantee learning outcomes.
• You and your child were frustrated that you were putting the effort without any idea whether the effort would be rewarded. There was no way to auditably track performance improvement on a daily or weekly basis.

#### The New Result

• You get easy learning-on-the-go and in-the-minute convenience that makes happy. You save time without any commuting, which automatically translates to more time with family.
• You get the guarantee of learning outcomes and you precisely know what your child needs to do to become a math champion,
• Your child’s confidence soars and they get become very positive about math instead of hating math.
