Teachers’ Qualifications/Teaching Schedule/Class Sizes/Curriculum




Q: What qualifications do your instructors have?


A: All MathEdge instructors have at least earned their bachelor’s degree. Some hold master’s degrees or PhDs as well. Our math instructors are capable of teaching the advanced logic and concepts needed to understand the mathematics our students learn. Several of our instructors have engineering backgrounds and were trained to apply mathematics in applications. Most of them were also mathletes who participated in math contests in middle school or high school, and they have strong logical thinking minds. Instructors for our Writing+ program are all native English speakers. Some are experienced English schoolteachers, while others are professional and/or published writers. Please see our Teachers page for more information.
