EXAMPLES OF HOW WE TEACH
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: Where are these bootcamps and workshops located?

A: Our bootcamps and workshops will be hosted online via Zoom video conference. Students and parents will receive a link via email prior to the session. These bootcamps can be done from the comfort of your own home, without having to waste entire weekends.

Q: Can I sign up for more than one bootcamp?

A: Yes, you may sign up for more than one bootcamp. This is ideal for students who will be doing summer coursework.

Q: Will there be homework for the bootcamps?

A: Yes. We want students to get the most out of their time with us. Students will have a few problems and assignments to complete between sessions, that should take no longer than 4 hours to complete per week. With math, practice makes perfect! We will drill down concepts with students during class as well, but homework will be a part of the process.

Q: What if I cannot attend every session due to a conflict or vacation?

A: No worries — all of our sessions will be recorded. Every registered student will have access to recordings for the duration of the course and through the end of the following school year. 

Q: Who are the instructors?

A: The instructors are TJHSST Alumni and are well-versed in Math. All of our instructors achieved the maximum scores on the AP AB/BC Calculus Exams, SAT, and SAT Math II Subject Test. They have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience and have run math preparatory bootcamps since 2016.

Q: How many students will be in each class?

A: While we are uncertain of the exact number of students, we will cap the student:instructor ratio at 1 instructor for every 9 students. We believe that this will allow for lots of individualized attention for each student, as well as a comfortable classroom environment.
