What is ALOHA Math USA, the Contest Sponsor, and Prize all about?
ALOHA Math USA provides math tutoring in a unique way that gives kids life-long skills. For kids who needs help with math, or are falling behind in school, parents can get math help for their children with the unique mental math tutor program provided by ALOHA-USA.com.
The program is called ALOHA Mind Math, and “ALOHA” stands for Abacus Of Learning Higher Arithmetic. What’s an Abacus? It’s an ancient calculator tool used by sliding beads on posts to count. If it sounds too simple to work, you might be surprised to learn that these instructor-led small-class-size math tutoring sessions teach children to solve complex arithmetic questions (think: (128+432-46+514) / 82) in their heads quicker than most people can on a standard calculator. It also helps them reduce their fear of arithmetic. This is not the repetitive or rote-learning approach to teaching kids math. The method focuses on a kinestheic way of learning that promotes development in both the left and right lobes of the brain and improves focus gives them a head start in all academics.
Founded by Mr. Loh Mun Sung in 1993, ALOHA learning centers are ideal locations where children can receive additional math support from trained professionals via the ALOHA Mental Arithmetic Program –- an after school program designed and structured by a panel of experts in the field of mathematics. The program’s 2-hour, once a week classes, focus on whole brain development, and has a positive effect on a child’s confidence level and result in improved academic performance in school.
The ALOHA Mind Math program began in Malaysia and spread rapidly throughout Asia because of math tutor results that speak for themselves. It now teaches more than 8,000 students in America, since arriving here in 2006. ALOHA Mind Math operates more than 4,200 schools around the world, and parents have the opportunity to not only improve their kids’ math abilities, but their students will also learn to have fun while doing it.
