Philosophy

At Capstone Learning, we strive to provide enriching learning experience designed to promote higher grades and better sense of confidence.

1 Promoting Understanding

Our teaching method focuses on promoting in-depth understanding of important concepts in math. We have developed set of instructional strategies and student activities that help students really get it.

Too often, students memorize the formulas and procedures and neglect to think about how and why a formula or procedure work. As a result, these students fail to perform well in tests and have trouble keeping up with math in higher grades.

Have you heard your child say “I did all the homework but I did poorly in the test.”?

In Capstone Learning, we break down complex concepts and procedures into simpler pieces and explore them with students from various perspectives, using research-backed instructional strategies.

2 Promoting Skills in Application & Thinking

We believe math is useful only if you can apply them.

Application questions, thinking & inquiry questions, and word problems are feared by almost all students. Yet, over 30-40% of grades in any given math test in high school come from application & thinking questions.

We teach our students effective problem-solving strategies and word problem strategies that students can use to solve harder questions systematically and with ease.

Skills our students learn in Capstone Learning can be used in higher grade math courses, university, and workplace.

3 Promoting Good Practice and Study Skills

In order to obtain higher grades in school, just studying is not good enough. Studying must be done using effective studying technique to be effective.
