** Overview**

To better prepare young generation of students to love and master STEM areas, to attain STEM college degrees, and to remain competitive in future, math is the key. Solid mathematics understanding and skills would enable many more students interested in STEM fields. Accelerating math in your elementary and middle school gets you into a more advanced math program in high school, and this in turn gets you into a great colleges in any fields. The value of a mathematics education lies not only in obtaining proficiency in computational tasks, but also in building a foundation for critical thinking. Our math program and tutoring will focus on *problem solving*, rather than the steps used to find the solutions. We instruct bright young students in the art of mathematical thinking and hope to better prepare their mathematical abilities and provoke/identify their love of curiosity, and thinking critically. Students who have never asked why things work the way they do are not prepared to lead the way to future scientific innovation. This independence of thought and questioning attitude is what our math program strives to nurture.

This flow chart deplays common math pathways for students form Grade 3 to Grade 12. The paths shown are typical routes taken by different students. The left column represents the minimum high school graduation requirements (college prep). If a student wants to stand out to admissions officers at competitive colleges, they need to choose honors courseworks, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses (from left to right). Transferring between paths is possible rom year to year based on student performence, teacher recommendation and acdemic counselor review.

Numerous researches have shown that the secret that kept kids from growing into professional scientists, engineers, and programmers is algebra, and the joy of learnig algebra as well. It is the algebra skills divide people into STEM professionals and non-STEM professionals. Coincidentally algebra also plays a significent role in AI machine learning technologies. Mastering algebra is a must. For K-8 students, our math programs forcus on "pre-algebra" and "algebra I" to better prepare our students to face their high school math challenges.
