We happened to find Afficient Math in June last year. My son took some tests, and he started with Grade 2 and Grade 3, mainly for review. After one year, my son loves Afficient Math, and his Math skill advances about 2 grade levels comparing to his grade. We will continue with Afficient Math for my son. The following are good aspects that I would like to share with others.
1. As we know, even in Cupertino top elementary schools, students don’t learn enough (both depth and breadth) math knowledge and skills. Afficient Math is a good learning center for the enhancement. Their product is self-paced, self-learning, online tool. Students can learn and practice at home, or at Afficient Math office. Students can do more during breaks and weekend. The pace is very flexible.
2. The online product provides all aspects of Math for elementary and middle school students, and they are developing contents for high school students. The product can trace the students’ progress, and is very interactive. For example, if the student makes some mistakes in one topic, the tool will go back to that topic repeatedly, until student makes good understanding and progress.
3. The staff are nice and professional. My son really likes their staff and teachers. The teachers make sure students really understand Math concepts. When needed, teachers will provide hints, and ask students first try to review demos and learning by theirselves. This way, students will have deeper understandings.
4. They have yearly one to one conference with parents. Dr Fang will talk to each family, provide student’s progress, and any feedback, etc. Plus, we can easily talk to Dr. Fang, and his staff/teachers, about concerns, progress, and suggestions. We really like Afficient Math, and expect my son will have great progress in the next school year.
