Unbelievable!! Thanks for everything you have done with Wayne's reading coaching sessions. I luv to hear him read and not struggle. He's making daily progress. Thanks again for all your help. God bless xx
My 7 year old daughter was really struggling but after just her first assessment and two coaching calls, she's flying!! So happy to see her make such progress in such a small amount of time. Thanks.
Very helpful. My son Josh is really keen to do more maths calls and I'm super happy to book them!

This 2-hour self-paced course teaches students the foundation of fractions. Students will gain clarity on what a fraction is and how to recognize one. They will gain an understanding of key vocabulary terms related to fractions, explore visual representations of different shapes and sizes of fractions, and find common denominators/numerators with ease. Students will also explore equivalent fractions, compare and evaluate “same size” whole representation.
Middle and high school students will take their understanding of fractions to the next level and prep for high-stakes tests. Students will subtract fractions with same or like denominators and with different denominators. Multiply fractions, multiply fractions with cancellation, multiply fractions and whole or mixed numbers, divide fractions and divide fractions and whole or mixed numbers.
Go way beyond memorization of math facts up to 12. Learn how to multiply 2 figure numbers in different ways. Compare and evaluate the common core standard approach with Vedic Maths mental multiplication techniques. Vedic Math is a form of mental calculation designed to help you multiply in a simpler and faster way. After passing the assessments with a 95% score or higher, you should be well prepared to multiply problems such as 34 x 37 and 86 x 42 with ease as well as evaluating simple algebraic expressions.
When the only strategy students learn for elementary math is memorization then essentially they are tasked with memorizing over 100 isolated equations. That’s not good number sense because that often doesn’t stick especially with young learners. Students first need a deep understanding of number sense -- the ability to see spatial patterns and number relationships. This course will provide a refresher of the essential building blocks for strong number sense including: operations of digits within 10, spatial relations, number pair, doubling, halving, odds/ evens and more. This 2 hour course is a perfect complement to the 530 Scholars Comp10 card game.
This one is for teachers. An introduction to 530 Scholars teaching style. This includes a blend of Vedic Maths as well as traditional math techniques. You will have full access to self-paced training videos for the entire duration of the course and can study them remotely. On completion of the assessment tests an e-certificate will be sent. At the end of the course: You should be comfortable teaching arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) of whole numbers. You should be comfortable teaching concepts on decimals, fractions, exponents, and radicals. After passing the assessment with a 90% score or higher, you should be well prepared to teach basic algebraic operations as well.
