Christina* (not her real name) has an unidentified learning disability that causes short term memory loss. Difficulties remembering short term information made learning mathematics at homeschool difficult until she started using Elephant Learning as a supplement.
For Christina, math time always meant tears. Low self-esteem due to her disability made learning even harder. She was held back twice in 1st grade and continued to move slowly through middle school. Even though Christina was an 8th grader, she was still at a 3rd-grade level. Her mom made the choice to homeschool her instead to help her catch up with extra attention and tutoring happening twice a week.
Christina’s tears at math time fueled her mom to find anything that would help. She realized her daughter wanted to excel past the frustration and anxiety and finally learn mathematics. After reading reviews and case studies about the success that other students with learning disabilities had on Elephant Learning, Christina’s mom decided to sign her up.

Playing math games with Elephant Learning not only helped her understand the concepts she desperately wanted to know but brought her tons of joy while learning. According to her mom, Elephant Learning has no doubt helped boost Christina’s confidence. Both finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.
You may cancel at any time by logging into the website and going to Manage Account > Plans & Payment. 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.
