Get Started Now

Summary

Dillon has Autism. Finding a mathematics platform to help him soar was crucial to his mom, Alise. Though they struggled during homeschool, math is now their favorite subject, thanks to Elephant Learning.

1.) Challenges

Dillon’s autism holds him back from learning math strategies and skills. Since Alise homeschools Dillion, she needed help to teach math in a practical way for Dillon that he understood.

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Media that described and featured Elephant Learning’s "learn one year of math in three months" caught Alise’s eye. She immediately signed Dillon up and never looked back.

Is there a commitment?  Can I cancel at any time?

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.

How does the Guarantee work?

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.

Is this common core?

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.

What subjects does the system cover?  What ages does it work for?

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.
