What People Say About Us

Your site have been a Godsend for me as I learn Singapore Math methods. The videos have been extremely helpful (lesson plans and worksheets too) for me as a teacher/learner and giving me a way to explain a concept to my students. THANK YOU!


My kids love the way it is laid out. Keeps their attention and they want to complete the worksheets. We use it with along with Primary Math Singapore Math so I have to pick and choose through some of the worksheets but overall it follows a similar path as the work we are learning in our books.


My kiddos were struggling with this Math and your packet really helped them understand! Thank you so much!


I work with a wide age and skill range of remedial math students. Your worksheets are so well labeled that I can easily find what I need to meet individual needs.
