The pandemic ended the school year early and many students did not finish 3rd grade math. It also looks like the virus will continue to disrupt education this year.

In 3rd grade math students are being taught multiplication, division and other essential concepts. It is hard to master these concepts virtually. 3rd graders need concrete, hands on practice to master multiplication and division or they’ll fall behind and lose confidence in their ability to do math.

If you’re worried the available virtual learning will not be enough for your 3rd grader, we’re here to provide the math help needed, We provide individualized attention and learning paths paced to your child. We use Singapore math methods to help 3rd grade math students master a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) progression. We’re local math teachers who know how to make learning fun and interactive.
