Even within a single family, children can be very different. And because of this, they all require very different assistance to find success and reach their full potential. Karen, a busy mom of six daughters, found what all of her girls were needing with Elephant Learning.
Most parents will tell you that their children are very different. And it’s true. Even raised in the same household with the same rules and expectations, siblings will have very different personalities, interests, and motivations.
These differences can create a challenge for parents who want to help their children be the best they can be. There is no one size fits all approach they can take.
For Karen, mom to six daughters all under the age of ten, this was especially true. Ten-year-old Makayla is autistic and globally delayed, but her mom describes her as very sweet and funny. Reagan, who is eight, is mathematically inclined but is also very social. A natural leader, she often lacks the motivation necessary for schoolwork. Seven-year-old Alexis is a highly intelligent and gifted reader. Karen is also homeschooling her five-year-old daughter, Charlize, who struggled to adapt to the traditional school environment's rigorous structure. Also, the girls have two baby sisters, two-year-old Scarlett and one-year-old Sienna.
Karen needed assistance for Makayla to help her overcome the gaps in her mathematics knowledge and also to deliver homeschooled Charlize’s math lessons. At the same time, she hoped to find something to challenge Alexis and Reagan and introduce essential number recognition to Scarlett.
Karen discovered Elephant Learning on the internet and was impressed with the many reviews from parents and teachers. “I was very hopeful of your program’s acclaimed success,” she wrote.
The Elephant Learning app did not disappoint. When Charlize first started with Elephant Learning, she had an Elephant Learning age of just 3.5 years, over two years lower than most of her peers. Within six months, Charlize had gained over two years of math and had surpassed many of her peers. Makayla and Alexis had similar results, gaining one year and almost two years, respectively!
You may cancel at any time by logging into the website and going to Manage Account > Plans & Payments. There is a cancel button on this screen. We only ask that you complete the month that you are on.
Your student's Elephant Age will go up by 1 year over 3 months if they use the system 10 minutes per day, 3 days per week. If it does not, or if along the way you do not feel your students are making sufficient progress please contact us.
At 3 months if the goal is not achieved, we will either give you 3 months for free with additional person-to-person coaching OR a full refund.
We are not common core. We created our system independently of any other curriculum or standard as a way of "starting over" and "doing it right." Having said that, we cover the essential topics and treat mathematics as a language, so we are compatible with ALL curriculums and standards including common core.
Many parents find common core frustrating and confusing. Our system is straightforward, and our reports allow parents to understand how we intend to teach each subject. We also provide activities that parents can do with their students to take learning outside of the system.
We cover from counting through Algebra. We have seen students as young as 2 years of age achieve success. If you have an older student who is struggling with upper level mathematics, it tends to be due to a misconception that occurs in Algebra or earlier. Our system will detect gaps in understanding and fill them with activities that were proven by third-party research to teach the concepts effectively.
