Having helped over 100 families since 2002, we design each Door-2-Math program according to the student's current math level, age and personal goals. A brief summary of each type of program is given below with a link to a more detailed description:
Programs to re-engage students who'd been failing in math - Door-2-Math has successfully worked with numerous students to whom math has not made sense for as long as they can remember. Typically, to get by, the student has had to rely on memorization and luck. Often, the ability to memorize is outpaced by the increasing difficulty of the math and failing grades ensue. The main goal in this type of program is to restore a student's confidence so that math is not a stumbling block in the future. This is done through a thorough rebuilding of a student's math foundation, followed by re-working of study and test taking skills.
Programs to re-establish students who were doing well until recently - This program is tailored for students who have not been having problems in math and receiving good grades until a change in math topics, teachers, or schools suddenly impacted the math grades. For this program, Door-2-Math determines what caused the deterioration in grades (holes in the math foundation, test taking skills, study skills, etc.) remedies the problem, and puts a foundation in place for a solid and confident math performance in the future.
Programs to challenge the "A" student - This program is for students who have done relatively well in math so far and want to stay ahead when new math topics are introduced in school. Typically these students are not receiving enough challenge in school and want to be prepared for increased competition in a top-tier university. This is a longer term program where we keep an eye on a student's math progress and alert the parents and fix any potential trouble spots before they become a problem.
