After its success through the global expansion of its business in Australia, India, South Africa and the United Kingdom, Kendall Park-based Tabtor Math has expanded its tablet-based math tutoring program for K-8 students to Canada.
Tabtor Math has seen 335 percent growth in the number of paid subscribers since the beginning of 2014, with a whopping 97 percent retention rate. The company credits this to the product’s focus on mind mapping improves foundational skills in problem solving and critical reasoning, preparing children for lifelong learning success.
Raj Valli, CEO of PrazAs Learning, the company behind Tabtor Math, says the program can be helpful in getting students to perform above grade level. That is, in fact, what most subscribers use it for.
“Two-thirds of the parents who choose Tabtor Math have children who are already at grade level but are looking for additional enrichment or test preparation, not remediation,” he said. “Our proven approach is revolutionizing math education worldwide, as evidenced by our impressive measurable results, and is preparing children to compete successfully for tomorrow’s most highly sought-after careers in science, technology, engineering and finance.”
Citing a recent report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Valli says the expansion gives his company the opportunity to restore the typically high worldwide average math performance within the country.
That average has recently dropped, says the report.
“We’re tremendously excited by the opportunity to extend our presence this fall to Canada. Children there typically score higher than the worldwide average in math, but scores have deteriorated over time,” he said. “We look forward to helping parents in Canada give children the tools and support they need to succeed in math.”
