At Thinkster, our coaches are trained math educators who build personalized learning plans for each of their students. They use their knowledge of both the math curriculum and their students’ strengths and weaknesses to guide students to math success.
Our coaches also use Thinkster’s patent-pending Active Replay Technology to playback a student’s work in real time. They have the ability to assign tests at grade and topic level. Our coaches observe data such as time taken and accuracy to discover which concepts the student needs to work on next. Whiteboard coaching and feedback sessions help the coach and the student identify the points of struggle, understand the nature of errors, and focus on difficult concepts.
Thinkster Math’s world-class math curriculum is aligned with Common Core and State Standards, and designed to build analytical and critical reasoning skills.
We then customize our curriculum to meet the learning patterns and needs of each student, such as for advancement, supplemental work, or extra help.
Coaches shape a student’s learning plan to mirror classroom work, providing extra practice or more of a challenge.
Coaches grade worksheets daily providing personalized comments for the student. Coaches are ready to support students through videos and notes.
1:1 whiteboard sessions with the student are used to coach through challenging concepts, preview topics, answer homework questions, or prep for tests. Phone calls with the parent occur in order to discuss the learning plan and goals.
