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.

How long will it take for my student to get to grade level?
Great question. Many parents are worried about the length of committment and how quickly they can see results. As with all things that require sweeping changes, there is no magic bullet.
It can take years before they reach grade level but usually parents start to see results immediately.
Anxiety goes down.
Self-advocating begins to happen.
To give you a picture of what this looks like, a student typically works with us for several years before they start phasing out of our help. Students start earning the grades they’re looking for, speaking up for themselves, and even challenging a teacher’s thinking in class when they discover a different way of solving.
When a student starts coming to tutoring with very little questions and feels confident they understand, we begin moving students into an “as-needed” basis.
My child has a lot of test anxiety. What is the assessment like?
We totally get that testing can make for a miserable experience. We can break the assessment up into different lengths to accomodate for the stress, but you should also know that your child will be working with a real human.
Can we stop tutoring once we start?
Absolutely. If your child is not “feeling it”, just let us know. We’ll walk you through how to stop.
Whoa! That costs a lot. Why?
We are not your typical tutoring experience. Our tutors are highly educated! Many of them with masters degrees and PhDs.
Our tutors receive continual training and have been trained in multisensory math techniques. This costs us a signifigant amount of money to continually invest in their knowledge.
Our sessions are different. There is no set protocol. Our tutors plan for your child. They understand how your child’s brain works!
In total transparency as well, it takes more money to run a business the right way. Other tutor companies choose to pay their tutors as contractors. We choose to hire them as employees which costs us more.
Our goal is to be around for the long haul. We control our future, not the government. We follow the law.
See how your money is spent:
Taxes: we pay money to the government to do business and pay employer taxes.
Fees: we pay fees to handle money coming in/out of the business.
Expenses: this covers materials and software to serve your child plus training for our staff.
Tutor: we pay our tutors a fair rate
Owner: we make sure the owner is compensated for tasks that are not billable such as free trials, email communication with families, training staff, and ensuring the quality of tutoring remains high.
