From Individual Tutoring to Small Classes, We’ve Got You Covered!
Like a Math Class. Unlike Any Math Class.
If math classes were reinvented today, what would it look like? It would be rich with multisensory experiences and real-life applications. Mobile so you could take a class in your pajamas or on the road. And so interactive — with touch, sound, and sight. In other words, it wouldn’t really be a “math class.” It would be our multisensory math class.
MFM’s Homeschool Math Classes
Built for those who think differently! Our students have the gifts of dyslexia, ADHD, dyscalculia, and autism. You chose to homeschool your child because of these very gifts, but there’s a problem…
You know your child has gaps in their math education.
Finding and filling those gaps have been painful and time consuming. Often it feels like you’re on the math edition of 50 First Dates because no matter what you do, it just doesn’t seem to stick.
Getting Math Done Can Be More Painless
You chose to homeschool because you knew there was no way the school could provide your child with the assistance needed, but as your child has gotten older math has become increasingly more difficult to teach.
Imagine how your daily homeschool life would change if you could remove the obstacle that math has become?
How would it feel to not worry about teaching your child 5 different ways to solve a problem?
You’ll have more time to:
- Teach your passion topics
- Spend more time on interactive activities
- Enjoy being the parent and not the teacher
And that’s why we’ve created a math class like no other!
Homeschool Class meets Multisensory Math
Parents, we know how tiring it can be to find a math method that sticks with your child. You want to provide top-notch lessons, but lack the resources and time to do so.
We are a multisensory math tutorial center. We use techniques that are research-based to give your child exactly what they need to aid in their retention of math.
Our technique: C-R-A
Concrete – think things you can touch
Representational – think things you can draw
Abstract – think just numbers
You may have tried this framework inside of other programs like Math-U-See but struggled none the less. All of our teachers have been highly trained in multisensory math through programs like ASDEC.org.
Our homeschool math classes are provided all online so that you can access class on-the-go or from the comfort of your pajamas.
We take the guesswork out of homeschooling math at these higher levels. No more scrolling YouTube for one more video you hope will hit the mark.
Not only do students love working with others online, but parents adore online tutoring because it makes learning math hassle-free.
We promise you’ll have cramp free hands from all that scrolling on YouTube.
Wondering if this class is a good fit for your child?
While this technique is appropriate for all learners, it’s essential for students who:
- Feel resistant to doing math work in general
- Struggle to remember the steps to solve problems
- Fail to complete homework in a reasonable amount of time
- Label themselves as “math stupid”
- Thrive when presented with opportunities to learn by doing
$375 per month/4 Days Week
(homeschool charter schools welcome)
Starts in Sept. 2019
We use highly visual videos, mnemonics, the study of math language, and touching math objects so that the student can build a reliable way to remember HOW to work with math now and into high school.
Groups of 4 - 6
Allowing your child to see that they are not the only one that struggles can be powerful. There is little risk of running into a peer in their community. Many of our students become friends after the class ends.
4 Days Per Week
We know our students need lots of repetition to build strong neurons and new connections but in a way that their brain learns best…through the senses.
We provide all the independent practice pages which are easy to read and dyslexic friendly. We strive to only have 4 – 6 problems per page, providing ample writing space.
We use slower speech which allows your child to process what is being said.
Our class also has a holiday and vacation schedule to allow for time with family.
Quizzes and Test
Students will be quizzed and tested on the material they’re learning. We give students extra time if needed and as many retakes of a test as desired. Just like you, we encourage a growth mindset in our students.
Two Classes Available
4th/5th Grade Class
Monday – Thursday (time to be determined)
- Place Value
- Multi-digit multiplication
- Long Division
- Basic Geometry
Middle School Grade Class
Monday – Thursday 9:30 am Pacific
Just like you, we love our freedom to teach how our students learn best.
We’ll be using a blend of various curriculum. A materials fee of $100 will be collected before class begins.

RESERVE YOUR CHILD'S SPOT
Last day to register is August 18, 2019.
Our registration fee is $100 which is applied to supplies for our class.
After you pay, you’ll fill out a form to let us know which level you’d like.
We live outside of the U.S. Can we still participate?
Yes, you can! There are a few exceptions. Materials that we mail to students are only shipped within the continental United States. That means that if you live in Alaska, Hawaii, the UK, or Australia you’ll need to gather the materials for the class. This class is also for English speaking students only.
My child isn't performing at grade level now. Will this class be too hard?
Great question! Most of our students are 2 to 3 grade levels behind their peers. Our opinion is…that’s ok! We’ll begin with an assessment to see exactly where your child falls so we can serve them best. We also recommend opting to buy the class + tutoring. We give a special discount for families enrolled in our class. You can choose to do the class and pay for additional time with a tutor twice a week.
Can we use funds from our charter homeschool?
You sure can! We are vendors for several charter homeschools. We’d happily apply to be a vendor so you can delegate those funds to this class.
Is this class appropriate for my child with dyslexia?
Absolutely! Multisensory math is an absolute MUST when working with a child that has dyslexia. It will be a total game changer for your child.
How many students are in each class?
We have a minimum of 3 and a max of 5. Your child will get to know their peers well!
Individual Tutoring/Multisensory Math Coaching
Looking for more personal attention? We provide individual tutoring for families looking for more assistance with their dyslexic, ADHD, or autistic child.
All of our individual tutoring comes with:
- An in-depth diagnostic assessment
- Personalized lesson plans
- Communication with the tutor via phone, email, and text
- All required materials
- Recordings of lessons
- Homework assignments (per request of the parent)
Will multisensory math work for your child?
Run through this visual checklist. If your child struggles with any of these, then multisensory math is a good fit!
Math Resistant Child
If math has become a battle or homework is taking longer than 30 minutes, it's time to bring in one of our coaches to teach your child how they best learn. Many of our students report feeling tremendous relief in the first 10 minutes!
Middle & High Schoolers
These years are the best to tackle math deficits. Waiting only deepens the problem and slows down progress. Our students experience rapid results and increased confidence! Multisensory math works even at the algebra level.
"Lazy" or "Unmotivated"
Are you hearing from the school your child is bright and smart, but lazy and unmotivated? We know that's just NOT true! They haven't been exposed to how their brain learns best which is through multisensory math.
Out of the Box Thinker!
Does your child have a knack for seeing the big picture? Do they seem to problem solve best when they are doing something? Are they excellent at building with their hands? Multisensory math is a great fit.
IEP, 504s, RTIs
Does your child have a current intervention plan at the school to help with various learning needs? Multisensory Math can be the anchor to all learning at school as they continue up each grade.
We help student's with differently wired braines! Such as 2E (twice exceptional), ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, processing disorders, sensory issues, and autism spectrum disorder.
