Finding resources for homeschooled children is a challenge for many families. For military families living overseas, however, it can be insurmountable. Four-year-old Amelia and two-year-old Evelyn’s mom joined a small homeschool group on the base. However, most of the children were older, so the shared resources the group offered were not age-appropriate. Their mom also tried to locate local and online resources but found very few were available in English. The girls’ close relationship also posed a bit of a problem when it came to homeschooling. “Amelia has trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time,” says mom, “and Evelyn only shows interest when Amelia is doing work with her.”
During her online search for resources, Amelia and Evelyn’s mom found Elephant Learning. The program, which combines gamification with age-appropriate learning and assessment, was exactly what she was looking for.
The girls’ mom realized the girls wouldn’t progress unless they were able to focus, but forcing children to do lessons can sometimes be counterproductive. “I don’t want to force them to sit,” she says, “but I don’t know how else to pique their interest.” She also didn’t want them hating school, especially math. Elephant Learning immediately engaged both girls. The gamification approach made learning fun. The focus on learning, review, and assessment tailored for both Amelia and Evelyn individually, was exactly what mom was looking for. The girls’ results confirm their success with the program. Both Amelia and Evelyn are now performing well beyond their age level.

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.
