Will multisensory math work for your child?

Run through this visual checklist. If your child struggles with any of these, then multisensory math is a good fit!

Math Resistant Child

If math has become a battle or homework is taking longer than 30 minutes, it’s time to bring in one of our coaches to teach your child how they best learn. Many of our students report feeling tremendous relief in the first 10 minutes!

Middle+High Schoolers

These years are the best to tackle math deficits. Waiting only deepens the problem and slows down progress. Our students experience rapid results and increased confidence! Multisensory math works even at the algebra level.

“Lazy” or “Unmotivated”

Are you hearing from the school your child is bright and smart, but lazy and unmotivated? We know that’s just NOT true! They haven’t been exposed to how their brain learns best which is through multisensory math.

Out of the Box Thinker!

Does your child have a knack for seeing the big picture? Do they seem to problem solve best when they are doing something? Are they excellent at building with their hands? Multisensory math is a great fit!

1f4d1 2

IEP, 504s, RTIs

Does your child have a current intervention plan at the school to help with various learning needs? Multisensory Math can be the anchor to all learning at school as they continue up each grade.

Neurodiverse Thinkers!

We help student’s with differently wired brains! Such as 2E (twice exceptional), ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, processing disorders, sensory issues, and autism spectrum disorder

Frequently Asked Questions

What are MFM Specialists?

MFM’s specialists are highly trained in mutlisensory math methods. None of our tutors are contractors with their own methodology.

All tutors are trained through a rigorous program for multisensory math and learn about the neurodiverse students we work with.

Many of our tutors have Master’s degrees or Ph.D.’s! They choose to work with us here because we truly do what works for students.

Who do you serve?

We serve the following students:

3rd grade – high school students

So in a nutshell, we’ll work with your student! Our roots started in middle school but we’ve since expanded.

We provide intervention services to students with:

  • dyslexia
  • dyscalculia
  • ADHD
  • autism
  • math anxiety
  • math learning disability

 

Will the assessment cause my student anxiety?

We totally get that testing can make for a miserable experience. This is an informal assessment administered by our math specialist. They typically are game-based unless the student is older than 7th grade at which point the specialist will decide which assessment is best.

How long will it take for my student to get to grade level?

Great question. Many parents are worried about the length of commitment and how quickly they can see results. As with all things that require sweeping changes, there is no magic bullet.

It can take years before they reach grade level but usually, parents start to see results immediately.

  • Anxiety goes down.
  • Confidence increases.
  • Self-advocating begins to happen.

To give you a picture of what this looks like, a student typically works with us for several years before they start phasing out of our help. Students start earning the grades they’re looking for, speaking up for themselves, and even challenging a teacher’s thinking in class when they discover a different way of solving.

When a student starts coming to lessons with very few questions and feels confident they understand, we begin moving students into an “as-needed” basis.

Will you help with homework?

No, what we do is inherently different and more akin to intervention or therapy. We will not help your child stay afloat in their current math class.

We assess to find the gaps and start teaching the student where they are at as mathematics is a sequential progression. Holes must be filled before moving forward.

Where do the sessions take place?

All online using Zoom.us, a live-video platform that allows us to use several different types of software.

We’re multisensory, so don’t be fooled! We mail materials to your child to get hands-on learning in each time they work with us.

All materials are included and will be mailed to your home.

Is online tutoring safe?

Safety and quality service matters to us! All sessions are recorded to capture learning and keep students/specialists safe.

Students love having access to the recording to refer to during the week when they are not having lessons.

Families will have access to a portal to watch tutoring sessions, update your debit/credit card details, and access courses

Can we stop lessons once we start?

Absolutely. If your child is not “feeling it”, just let us know. We’ll walk you through how to stop. No refunds of unused sessions will be given. Notify us by email at hello@madeformath.com

Monthly payments are the worst! Can we pay as we go?

No, our tuition model helps families plan for sessions. We don’t want our families to be surprised by a big bill ever!

Our tuition rates are based on the average amount of sessions used in one semester. We do have built-in holidays that coincide with most school calendars like Thanksgiving and Winter break.

Please don’t email and ask for an exception.

How long do students stay at MFM?

On average, our students stay for about 3 years. Many could leave sooner but like having our support as they continue in their math education. 

Our goal is the same as yours! We want independence and confidence in learning.
