Rote learning is a teaching technique completely based upon memorization, and we believe there is a better way to teach so that children can truly understand what they learn. Megamind offers a unique mental math program in which students learn the four basic operations, (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) all without the use of a calculator. This is done through the use of an Abacus, an ancient Japanese tool used for the calculation of many different problems. Once students have mastered the Abacus, they begin to visualize the steps in their mind to complete the calculations themselves. It is a way to turn on the power of the active mind.
In 2013, Megamind began offering tutoring in all subjects from grades JK to 12. Whether a child needs help with math, English, French, or any other subject, Megamind is here to help. Our goal is to provide the necessary support for all children to excel in school and get the most out of their education as possible. Tutoring is a service that is necessary for many children to succeed in school.
Megamind has collaborated with a leading online private high school to provide credits to students in grades 9 through 12. Most students learn at different paces, and for some it can be challenging to keep up in school. For others, having to wait for their peers to catch up can be the issue. Either way, private high school is an excellent way for kids to learn at their own pace and get the high school credits they need.
