# Everyday Mathematics Curriculum

Nov 30, 2014 | Glen Rock/Ridgewood

If your child is struggling or just getting by with Everyday Mathematics, call us now and we can help him/her excel.  Our method of teaching is to make sure that your child understands what he/she is learning with the current school material.  To take it one step further, we will also "pre-teach" our students ahead of time so he/she understands the upcoming lessons that will be taught in school.
