Mathus Academy Courses: 2020-21 Academic Year

Dear Friends,

2020-21 Academic Year Course registrations are now open. After careful considerations, we decided to make all classes online only for this Fall. We have also discounted the fees across the courses to make the online classes accessible to more students during the current pandemic period. Schedules, fees and other details are available below.

Register for any of the courses at: Mathus Course Registration

New academic year classes will start from August first week. All courses will be once a week for the entire academic period Aug 2020 – May 2021 (10 months), with the exception of some SAT and ACT courses which are available as short term as well for each SAT and ACT test dates*.

For administrative convenience, academic year courses are broken into two semesters (Aug-Dec: 5 months & Jan-May: 5 months), but the curriculum is for the entire academic year. There will be a class every week of the academic year except major US Holidays such as Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Spring break and Memorial Day.

Following are the courses offered for the Academic year 2020-21 (Courses available as small groups as well as one-on-one private coaching):

  • PerfectScore (PS) SAT, ACT, PSAT 8/9 – offered both as long-term course for the academic year and short-term course for each SAT/ACT Test date*
  • MathGenius (MG) Critical Thinking Math for 1st – 9th grades at 8 different levels
  • MathCore(MC) School Math for 1st – 8th grade & also Pre-Algebra, Algebra-1, Algebra-2 and Pre-Calc (other High school courses are one-on-one only)
  • LanguageGenius ELA(LG E) covering Reading, Writing, Grammar, Vocab, Sentence construction, various writing styles etc for 1 – 10th grades
  • LanguageGenius Public Speaking (LG PS) for 3rd – 9th grades to develop oral communication skills and speak confidently on any occasion
  • ScienceGenius (SG) Advanced Science classes for 3rd – 9th grade (including Biology [SG B] and Neuroscience [SG Neuro] courses for 7th-9th graders)
  • CodeGenius (CG) Python coding classes for 4th – 9th graders to help grow next gen entrepreneurs
  • DebateGenius (DG) Congressional Debate for 7th-9th graders
  • SpellGenius (SpG) and VocabGenius (VG) Spelling Bee and Vocab prep by Scripps National Spelling toppers (Vocab is now part of Spelling Bees)
    1. We are excited to take Mathus Academy Online classes to the next level by implementing a Learning Management System (LMS) to aid the live, interactive, online classes and to make the learning more comprehensive, accessible, and fun. The LMS will provide a login to the parents/students to access the classes, content, class recordings, as well as to track the student progress. We are also working on ways to make learning more fun for the kids by rewarding them for good behavior such as submitting homework on time, attending classes without absenteeism, etc. (sometimes known as gamification of learning).

        Webinars

          Our Founder Mr. Ram Yeleti will do a series of webinars/open houses during the month of July on every Sunday. At 2 PM EST on Sundays, there will be a webinar/open house on all Academic Year Online Classes. At 5 PM EST on Sundays, there will be a webinar on all SAT/ACT/PSAT Test Prep. Link for all the webinars is https://meet.google.com/kpf-wxau-ohs.

          Please note that these webinars replace the Saturday 5 PM webinars that Mr. Ram has been doing and so there will be no webinars on Saturday. Please join both webinars on any Sunday this month starting this Sunday. If you haven’t attended one of the webinars led by Mr. Ram in the past, these are must-attend events. Please feel free to direct any of your friends or families with K-12 children to the webinars. They are totally free and no registration required.

            MathGenius (MG): MG focuses on building strong Critical Thinking and Problem Solving skills in children. It is designed for children who are already doing well in Math at school. These skills will help in (a) preparing for Math competitions such as Mathcounts, AMC8/10, Math Kangaroo, NSF Math Bee, MathGenius online National competition etc, (b) building a strong foundation for SAT Math, challenging AP courses, Ivy college admissions, and (c) developing a flexible and analytical mindset that helps in acing high paying future careers such as Data science, Artificial intelligence, Neuroscience, Genetics (with heavy Math inputs), Nano-science etc. Parents are advised to note that Critical Thinking is a journey and not a crash course. It takes time to attain a flexible mindset and patience is paramount. Students who stayed with MathGenius for multiple years, even if it is initially challenging, got tremendously benefited. Please visit the ‘Testimonials’ from the top menu for the current/past parents first-hand comments. There are no credible competitive classes available in the marketplace for MG program. This program is offered in 7 levels (MG1 to MG7) and is suitable for students in grades 2 – 9. Levels will be decided based on an assessment/discussion with parents. It is available both online and onsite.
