Grandparents are Thrilled Their Grandkids are Excelling at Homeschool

By Elephant Learning | Case Study

Zoey and Buddy bring tons of joy to their grandparent’s lives. Though both grandparents adore their grandchildren, they struggled to homeschool them in mathematics. 

1.) Challenges

Both kids had distinct challenges met by Elephant Learning’s math program. 

Zoey

Zoey was behind in mathematics by national standards, even though she excelled in art and languages. To her grandparents, Zoey is, “The butterfly in our family, always happy and singing.” Zoey loved school but struggled in math, despite her best efforts. Her grandparents worked on her confidence while tackling her weaknesses.

Buddy 

Buddy was at-level in mathematics by national standards. In fact, he excelled in all school subjects. Buddy was, “A perfectionist by nature.” He got upset when he missed answers and was elated when he earned 100% on any exam. His grandparents worked hard to supplement his math to make sure he did not give in to laziness. The bottom line is that Buddy needed more mathematics to keep him interested in the subject. 

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Money is tight in the family, so their grandparents looked for programs with scholarships. They immediately applied when they learned that Elephant Learning offered a scholarship with Math Matters. Their heartwarming story lowered their fees from $35 per student a month to only $10 per student!

After 6 Months on Elephant Learning Elijah and Kamaria Are on The Path Towards Math Success

By Elephant Learning | Case Study

Summary

Elijah and Kamaria are two peas in a pod — ambitious and creative. Elijah (13) wants to be an engineer, while Kamaria (15) wants to graduate her homeschooling program early to become a pro modern dancer. Both are extremely bright, yet mathematics was the only barrier holding them back. After six months with Elephant Learning, both kids are back on track to meet their biggest dreams. 

1.) Challenges

After a big family move, each child struggled to adapt to a new academic environment which regressed their math skills even further. 

Elijah

Elijah once excelled in math and science, but pulling him out of his comfort zone caused: 

  • Low confidence in his math abilities
  • Low engagement in his coursework
  • Regression in basic math fundamentals

Kamaria

Though Kamaria excelled in creative studies, mathematics was her biggest barrier because of:  

  • Slow math comprehension
  • Difficulty meeting math goals
  • Scoring low on math tests

2.) Finding Elephant Learning

Elijah’s and Kamaria’s mom Malaika found Elephant Learning while looking for low-cost and affordable math supplements. She applied for Elephant Learning’s Scholarship and said, “I was determined I would sign up and apply. I knew if we got the scholarship it would be even more affordable and my children would be on the road to excelling.” 

3.) Elijah’s and Kamaria’s Results With Elephant Learning

After six months on the program, both kids are performing with wonderful results. 

Elijah 

Even though he started with an Elephant Age below his level, after half a year, Elijah’s competency is up and he’s achieving 100% on all his course work. 

  • Age: 13 years
  • Starting Elephant Learning Age: 9.38 years (below level) 
  • Current Elephant Learning Age: 12.65 years (at level)
  • The difference after six months: 3.27 years! 

Elijah's scores

Elijah is working hard in mathematics again because it is essential for engineers, what he wants to be when he grows up. His mom is happy the math gap is closed and looks forward to enrolling him at Rooted, a revolutionary tech-based charter school. 

Kamaria

Kamaria is making leaps and strides on her Elephant Learning program. With six months of coursework under her belt, she is also stepping up her math game. 

  • Age: 15 years
  • Starting Elephant Learning Age: 9.16 years (below level) 
  • Current Elephant Learning Age: 11.24 years (at level)
  • The difference after six months: 2.08 years! 

Kamaria's scores

Kamaria no longer spends late nights trying to digest mathematical concepts. She is earning better math scores at home and is working even harder to graduate early to pursue a dance scholarship. 

“Elephant Math can help both of my children achieve the goals they have set for themselves knowing that math is not a barrier but math is possible.” – Mom, Malaika
