Senna And Talaia Are Two Unique Learners Who Found The Right Teacher In Elephant Learning

Get Started Now


Senna and Talaia struggled with both reading and mathematics. Both girls felt “dumb” while they were in school, and these feelings persisted in homeschool.  Worried that her daughters were falling even further behind, their mom decided to send them back to school. However, she was equally determined to ensure they caught up to their peers before they returned. Here is how Elephant Learning helped. 

1.) Challenges

Not everyone learns the same way. Unfortunately, it is not always possible for our schools to teach children in the unique ways that they need to be taught.

This was the case with both nine-year-old Senna and eleven-year-old Talaia. “My daughters are unique learners,” says mom, Tani, “and both struggle with math and reading.”

At school, the girls felt like “dummies,” explains Tani. She decided to homeschool, but their lack of confidence and disinterest in learning continued. Tani knew that it was critical to rekindling both of her daughters' interests in learning. “I tried to find unique educational experiences to help them grasp math and language arts and to instill a love of reading,” explains mom, “but even after our second year of homeschooling, I knew they were falling farther behind.

Their mom knew her girls were bright. However, discouraged by their lack of progress, she decided this would be their final year of homeschooling. The girls loved the family time they spent together in their homeschool, but Tani felt she couldn’t risk their falling even further behind.

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Tani also did not want to send Senna and Talaia back to a school environment, which would further diminish their confidence. “I was hoping they could at least catch up to the grade level they would be placed in at school so Senna and Talaia wouldn’t feel “dumb” like they had when they were in school before,” she says. 

 “They are smart kids,” Tani says, “I just don’t know how to teach them, but then neither did their school.” She needed a program and an approach that could get through to the girls.

Her search for the affordable, unique learning resources she knew her daughters needed led Tani to Elephant Learning.

3.) Senna and Talaia’s Experience With Elephant Learning

Elephant Learning helped Senna and Talaia understand mathematical concepts and begin to learn and excel in a way that neither Tani nor their teachers had been able to. Suddenly they were finding success with mathematics, an achievement that could eventually lead to confidence in all aspects of their academics and life.

Within just six months of starting the program, Senna had gained 1.2 years of math, while Talaia had gained 1.4 years. Both girls were now almost on par with their peers in their understanding of mathematics.
