  • Does it really work? Goldstudent really works.  As parents, we know that for children to learn things, such as sports or piano, regular practice is necessary to enforce the concepts and techniques they need to learn and master.  Math is no different.  There are many math concepts that need regular practice, and GoldStudent provides a convenient way for students to do this.  We recognize that doing more math may not be the first thing a child wants to do, so we created a point system to reward them with fun, cool prizes to make learning more fun and reward their progress.
  • Is it right for my child? GoldStudent is right for students who are behind in math as well as for students who are good in math and are looking for additional challenges.  Through our personalized assessment testing program, we tailor the worksheets we assign to each student's particular needs.  In addition, we have brain teaser questions for those who like to solve fun, harder math problems.  Every problem a student works on provides a chance for earning more points.
