MOFFETT FIELD, Calif., Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexei Beltyukov knows the importance of a quality education. The serial entrepreneur, who holds a medical degree and an MBA, has been brought on as the Chief Operating Officer of Solvy. Solvy is a new educational online system that focuses on making math education more accessible to high school students and educators. This new software will allow students to practice solving equations, word problems, tables and graphs online and have the option to receive instant feedback after completing math drills.
As a board member of Interactive Educational Services, Alexei Beltyukov understands what kind of direction this software needs to become successful.
"The goal is for Solvy to become a household name in high school math education," Alexei Beltyukov explained. "We want to make it easier for teachers to understand and manage their students progress and offer them feedback when outside of the classroom."
Solvy will focus on a subject where American students consistently underperform, mathematics. The program will allow students to study and explore math in a customized approach. Performance will be tracked and personalized recommendations will be made to help students achieve the best results. Students will also have the opportunity to see how 'real world' professionals use math for both work and play in the areas of the student interest.
"Solvy can help high schools around the country gain an edge in math education by making it more accessible and increasing comprehension of the given math subject," Alexei Beltyukov said.
For teachers, Solvy will generate automated homework and quizzes according to the parameters set. This will allow teachers to create customized assignments according to the students' needs in a timely and effective manner. Solvy will also partner with most advanced educational programs to seamlessly integrate with other education services.
Under the guidance of Alexei Beltyukov, a seasoned entrepreneur, Solvy will provide a key tool necessary for the interactive math sector. Solvy is set to make its first public release in March 2015.
