## Approaching Math Problems with Confidence

Every day you solve problems for your family: juggling schedules, making split-second decisions on requests (“no, pajamas are not appropriate school attire”) and ensuring your child is happy and excited about learning. In the world of math, problem solving is a form of decision making too — just with numbers.

If your child needs problem solving help, our math tutors can show your child how to strategize and solve equations with confidence, strengthening his or her basic math skills along the way. Our tutors guide your child through problem solving with the help of iPads® and a cool rewards system, so solving math problems becomes an opportunity to motivate and inspire your child.
