VIPTeacher and MIND Research Institute Announce Partnership to Deliver Online High-Impact, Grade-level Tutoring
Irvine, Calif., Nov. 15, 2022 —VIPTeacher and MIND Research Institute have partnered to accelerate student learning through online high-impact, grade-level tutoring by state-certified teachers. ST Math powered by VIPTeacher will give students greater access to build and demonstrate a strong conceptual understanding of mathematical concepts through lessons that leverage ST Math visual instructional puzzles within the VIPTeacher online tutoring platform.
ST Math powered by VIPTeacher allows students to build foundational grade-level skills and improve self-beliefs in mathematics. The solution is flexible to fit school and district schedules with one-on-one or small-group tutoring sessions available during school, before- or after-school, or during summer school.
“Tutors through VIPTeacher are state-certified teachers with a proven track record of delivering engaging virtual lessons for young learners. The combination of MIND Research Institute's premier product, ST Math, with VIPTeacher's robust platform and 10 years experience in tutoring operations make this a perfect partnership to support students' growth,” said Kevyn Klein, Head of VIPTeacher Operations.
ST Math, created by MIND Research Institute, is a PreK-8 visual instructional program that leverages the brain's innate spatial-temporal reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems. Rather than emphasizing missed skills for students who have been most impacted by interrupted instruction, ST Math removes the barriers that prevent them from accessing grade-level content.
“MIND is proud to partner with VIPTeacher to bring the power of ST Math to students with support from certified teachers,” said Brett Woudenberg, CEO of MIND. “As students develop conceptual understanding and growth mindsets to persevere in math, proficiency on standardized tests will increase along with their ability to apply mathematical concepts to real-world challenges.”
