KENDALL PARK, N.J., Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tabtor Math™ (www.tabtor.com) has expanded its math tutoring program for K-8 children into Canada following the success in the U.S., Australia, India, South Africa, and the U.K. Tabtor Math is the math tutoring program that fuses the most effective elements of personalized teaching with a fun and engaging iPad® and Android™ tablet-based experience for measurably improving student math performance. Its focus on mind mapping improves foundational skills in problem solving and critical reasoning, preparing children for life-long learning success. As a result, Tabtor Math has seen 335 percent growth in the number of paid subscribers since the beginning of 2014, with a whopping 97 percent retention rate.
Parents and teachers alike credit Tabtor Math (https://vimeo.com/137248259) with providing enrichment beyond the grade level curriculum while also transforming children who once struggled with math into confident learners. Within the first three months of using Tabtor Math, overall student performance in math improves by more than 90 percent. Children also average a 40 percent increase in engagement with math based on number of hours and worksheets completed. Within a few months, children demonstrate an average increase of 50 percent for learning speeds and 65 percent for answer accuracy.
Another reason for parents to love Tabtor Math is that it is completely portable and can be used virtually anywhere. Parents save up to 156 hours per year — nearly an entire week! — since Tabtor Math doesn't require time-consuming travel to tutoring center appointments, or help with teaching or grading of assignments. Tabtor Math is also used effectively in school classrooms in the U.S. and will be expanding into select private academies in California and Hawaii this fall.
"Two-thirds of the parents who choose Tabtor Math have children who are already at grade level but are looking for additional enrichment or test preparation, not remediation," said Raj Valli, founder and CEO of PrazAs Learning, the company behind Tabtor Math. "Our proven approach is revolutionizing math education worldwide, as evidenced by our impressive measurable results, and is preparing children to compete successfully for tomorrow's most highly sought-after careers in science, technology, engineering and finance."
He added, "We're tremendously excited by the opportunity to extend our presence this fall to Canada. Children there typically score higher than the worldwide average in math but scores have deteriorated over time, according to a report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). We look forward to helping parents in Canada give children the tools and support they need to succeed in math."
Thanks to its highly personalized design, Tabtor Math provides the opportunity for children who excel in math to complete modules quickly while delivering extra support to students who need more assistance to master subjects before moving on. Parents are able view their child's dynamic proficiency matrix and can interface with their dedicated tutor to fine-tune their child's learning plan based on how the child is progressing, their learning needs at school, or to prepare for standardized/entrance exams.
"Tabtor Math is changing how children learn. Its game-changing combination of technology and mind-mapping capabilities provides tracking of each child's approach to problem solving," said Dr. Barbara "Bobbi" Kurshan, the executive director of academic innovation and senior fellow in education at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. "With its innovative new product features, Tabtor Math has the opportunity to impact the math tutoring model and impact all learners. For all these reasons, I am very excited to be joining the Advisory Board at this critical stage of growth for Tabtor.
Revolutionizing Math Tutoring Worldwide
Parents looking to provide their children with a competitive edge in the new school year will benefit from the next generation of the Tabtor Math tutoring program, which is geared for better learning outcomes. Program enhancements include:

(See today's other Tabtor Math announcement and http://get.tabtor.com/parent-insights/ for more details.)
- Communication: New Tabtor Math features support closer engagement between parents, children, and tutors, including the ability to do both live chat and direct calling, in addition to the new Tabtor Parent Insights app.
- New Learning Pathways: Tutors have an improved proficiency matrix and adaptive diagnostic assessments for even more precise monitoring and analysis of their students' progress. Children will enjoy the updated Tabtor Math games, and have better access to detailed solutions immediately after an incorrect answer.
"Tabtor Math is a truly groundbreaking math tutoring solution in that it leverages the newest technology but places an emphasis on the 'old-fashioned' human element in education," said Dr. Kevin Merges, the executive director of Global Education Programs and director of the Innovation Center at Rutgers Preparatory School in Somerset, New Jersey. "This combination of tablet-based learning with a certified instructor is a real differentiator in the online learning market. Because of the personalized nature of Tabtor Math, children can quickly move past the things they know and spend more time working with tutors on the concepts that challenge them."
