An Overview of the Program

This course is designed for 5-9 year old children. I believe that this is the right age for your child to develop mental arithmetic skills. The course aims to train your child to use the left and right brain simultaneously, resulting in whole brain development. 

Program structure

 Classes are held in a game format, so the student does not have time to get bored or tired. Each class meets once a week and consists of 2-8 students. The students are matched together by the ability, knowledge and age to make the lessons more efficient. Math Magicians Academy offers after school and weekend math classes in downtown Woburn.

Prerequisites

A basic understanding of numbers and the ability to write numbers from 0 to 20.

Course Material

The abacus itself and the worksheets containing math problems (updated weekly). 

Make-Ups

If your child misses a class, it is usually possible to schedule a free make-up session. There is a limit of 2 free make-up sessions per level.
