An experience driven by the passion to cultivate the potential in all students’ math ability

About Us

Our Vision is to advance students’ understanding of Mathematics from 1+1 to improved self-esteem, enhanced career opportunities, and increased potential for success. Our Mission is to develop and enhance students’ confidence with all levels of mathematics through 1-on-1, in-home interactive sessions that simultaneously promote positive personal development.

We are an educational and mentoring service focused on strengthening students’ math confidence and skills through a family-oriented approach. We make an impact beyond the gradebook. It is our priority to ensure that all of our families have access to quality educational resources and opportunities that they may not otherwise have. These resources include a network of professionals with advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degrees, access to scholarships for college education, and external activities to learn more life-skills.

Core Values

We believe all of our students, parents, tutors, and other Afrithmetic associates should always practice their M.A.T.H. values:

Motivation

We motivate students to perform their best for success by heightening their self-esteem through improving their math skills.

Approachability

Every interaction with our service is warm and welcoming as we strive for utmost approachability. We dually serve as tutors and mentors guiding students towards excellent opportunities.

Transformation

Whether a student begins below or above average there is always room for improvement. We transform their self-confidence alongside their performance with numbers and operations.

Holistic Efforts

Our work does not stop at ensuring mastery in their math lessons. Afrithmetic fully adheres to our vision and mission as the holistic development of the student is our truest goal.

Schedule a Session

Tutoring sessions are a minimum of 1 hr and based off tutor availability. Our tutors conduct sessions at locations convenient for you. The location can be at your home, local coffee shop, school, library, or other study-like environments.

We are able to assist with K-12 math topics, introductory college math courses, and professional/continuing education exams such as SAT/ACT Math Prep, GRE Math, GED Math, GACE, and much more upon request.

During the summer we host Summer Math Programs for K-12 students and have unique Recap & Prepare Sessions. The Harvard Graduate School of Education reports that “on average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of learning in math over the summer”. The Recap & Prepare Sessions are for students to strengthen their math skills from the previous school year while preparing for the next year to retain those 2.6 months of learning.
