Our ImmersiveMath! Approach

  1. In-depth Assessment and Consultation: During a comprehensive academic assessment, we evaluate each student's strengths and areas for improvements, as well as academic goals. Through the consultation, it is our goal to thoroughly understand the wants and needs of the parents and student – including his or her academic history, hobby, interests, and extra-curricular activities.
  2. Personalized Learning Plan: We use the assessment results to tailor math instruction to the unique academic goals and learning needs of the student.
  3. Strategy & Practice: We equip our students with useful strategies that will help them tackle real-life math problems. Also, regular practice is a key to rapid achievements in a short period of time. Therefore, we use daily practice activities to reinforce the day's education.
  4. Communication with parents, legal guardians, and/or other teachers: We invite and welcome parental involvement. We value open communication and coordinate student math development with secondary parties, including: parents, teachers, and other stakeholders. Parents are regularly informed about the student's progress and alerted if parental support is needed.
