"Thinkster Math has been so amazing. The focus is on math but our son has improved in all subjects because he has gained so much confidence from figuring out how to study properly. It’s also so convenient to do the worksheets on an iPad at home and to do the tutoring sessions on our own time rather than the store hours of a tutoring place like Kumon." Michelle K. Seattle, WA
"Thinkster Math are great for the kids who wants to take math challenges. They are not like other math classes which work on their own pattern. If kids are doing well and taking higher level challenges Thinkster Math is the first choice. Coaches are really good and detail oriented. Happy to enroll my kid here." Anshika J. Irvine, CA
"A fantastic, customized tutoring program that doesn’t require driving to a center. Our tutor is communicative and responsive and always adjusting their assignments. Expensive but seeing good results. Three kids using, would highly recommend. Wish it went through high school!" Lisa G. Conifer, CO
"Fantastic. Having regular Skype calls with the tutor works really well. We are able to discuss what is being learnt at school and she puts in appropriate worksheets for further practice. Feedback and marking is very quick and queries resolved very quickly." Jacqueline S. London, England
"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. There have been some glitches with technical issues but I feel these have been resolved well and without fuss. We are very happy to continue." Elissa T. NSW, Australia
"We move about once a year, and this helps our child stay fresh in math and not get behind. We have also used it in conjunction with homeschooling and it has been an amazing supplement.
I love the feedback and contact with the teacher, and the videos that accompany most worksheets help my child feel self reliant and she knows how to get help on her own thru the app." Ashley A. Salt Lake City, UT
"Thinkster Math 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 Math." Liz F. Park City, UT
"Thinkster Math is a good option for my daughter to stay ahead and practice Math. It is much better than other options because it offers teaching guidance and support rather than just constant practice with 100s of worksheets with no foundational teaching.
I would ask Thinkster Math to add high school level math as well so the more advanced kids can work at an advanced pace." Divya M. Richmond, IN
"I am a huge fan of Thinkster Math having used it for several years. The topics are covered thoroughly, ensuring that my children really understand the concepts and have ample opportunities to practice.
If your child is particularly interested in a certain area of maths, or if you want your child to focus on one topic for a while to support them with their maths at school, then their tutor will accommodate that.
Both my children were recently moved into higher ability maths groups at school due to their regular (daily) practice on Thinkster. The app has improved not only their understanding of maths, but also their general confidence in tackling and solving new problems.
Thinkster Math is not a game, and there will be times your child won't want to do it. But I treat it as a normal part of their homework schedule, and we set our own targets and reward scheme at home to motivate them.
The tutor my children have is very responsive to their progress and adapts their curriculum effectively. We're in touch regularly via email so I can give feedback on where my children are struggling and need extra practice. I also receive weekly reports on how much they are using Thinkster Math.
My only criticism is that the system can be glitchy at times (both the Thinkster Math app and the Parent support app). But you can contact the tech support team directly and problems are resolved relatively quickly.
Overall I highly recommend Thinkster Math if you're looking for a maths app which is easy to use, motivating, visual and interactive, adapts to your child's abilities automatically, and will most definitely improve their understanding of and enthusiasm for maths." Gemma S. St. Helens, England
"We found Thinkster Math while searching for alternatives to Kumon (the nearest center for us is over 40 minutes away and is too far). Since our 7 y.o. is already being taught on 'paper' in school we felt that having an online program would offer variety.
The option to download worksheets was also a huge PLUS! Before I continue I will have to share early on that the best way to access the Thinkster Math worksheets is on an iPad. We started at first via desktop (Mac) and tried an android tablet first, but we accepted that getting an iPad was a worthy investment in addition to the Thinkster Math program.
We appreciate being assigned a tutor who could document and review progress and reassign worksheets as necessary. We work with her every week, 15mins/session and are currently on the Gold plan. We have direct communication with the tutor as far as which areas we feel our son needs more help on, and it is also extremely reassuring that we can share with the tutor our son's progress and the feedback we get from his school. Our son's homeroom teacher and his interventionist agree that since our son started Thinkster that he has gained a better grasp of Math concepts and that bridging the gaps in his knowledge has gotten easier.
The challenge for us as parents was to be even more involved with how our son was being taught in school as we noticed that Thinkster Math had some verbiage which was different or not being used in our son's school.
It has also been challenging to acknowledge that our son does struggle in certain areas, and that it does take time for some concepts to really be understood, AND that the expectations for his grade level are far more than what we remember from our days as grade schoolers.
If your child is still struggling with reading, or is not yet a very capable reader, it may be challenging to see him or her go through predominantly word problems.
While the Thinkster program was designed to encourage independence etc, I would not advise leaving your child to his or her own device (literally) all the time. Our input as parents is very important and our tutor appreciates all the input we provide her, in fact it assures the tutor how invested the parent really is when the parents get to know their child's learning patterns/behaviors/strengths and weaknesses.
For as long we can, we will continue to supplement our son's Math learning with Thinkster Math. Thanks Thinkster!!" Noelani P. Coryell, TX
"This has been a great program for my son. He has gone from a D to a B and he is still improving. He is much more willing to do problems on the iPad than on paper, and the live coaching has helped him in the areas where he is struggling. I highly recommend Thinkster Math!" Chad D. Carson City, NV
