Pre-Algebra! Session 2

  • Nov 26, 2012 · 12:30 PM
  • Catherine's home

Join us for a Freshi on Math! Our favorite Freshi Academy folks are now bringing math to their amazing roster of classes. Join us as we continue with Pre-Algebra. New students welcome!

Note: This class will be in a private home. Address will be sent with RSVP. Thank you!

Our teacher, Mr. Jared, will be using a combination of tutoring and a structured approach to get our students ready for Algebra. Pre-Algebra will run for about 16 weeks and then we will start Algebra. Jared has had amazing success showing kids a new way to think about Math that makes it easy for them- he takes out all math language and uses just plain words so that they are not intimidated- he doesn't worry about them learning the vocabulary until they firmly understand the concepts- that really works.

Students will become proficient in using ratios, proportions, and solving algebraic equations. They will develop and expand problem solving skills (creatively and analytically) in order to solve word problems.


Ages: 11+ years

Mondays, 12:30pm-2pm

4 weeks: 11/26, 12/3, 12/10, 12/17, 10/23

Cost: $70/student

Sky Mountain vendor: Freshi Academy

Instructor: Jared Kiesby.

A key aspect in Jared's approach to helping students succeed in math is a guided focus on the concepts first, and the language second, as well as a reinforcement of key math concepts from throughout a student’s career. By focusing on the building block concept in
mathematics education, and teaching students key topics in easy-to-understand “everyday
language”, then focusing on the terminology once the concept has been understood,
students will better understand the material as a whole and become significantly more
confident with their overall math skills.

Jared Kiesby has over 12 years of experience in working exclusively with SAT Test
Preparation and Math. He managed the Math Support Services facility in Santa Clarita for
five years and organized No Child Left Behind classes for LAUSD’s northern LA County
program. Jared studied at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Arizona State and CSUN. He recently
returned to California after managing a custom construction company in Phoenix. Luckily for Freshi, he decided to return to his first loves, Math and teaching.

This is a drop-off class, but as always, parents are invited to stay and observe.

To sign up one child, please RSVP as yourself; to sign up two children, RSVP +1 guest, etc.

If you are not using Sky Mountain funds, please bring payment to the first day of class or pay online.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
