We arrange a Getting Started Session, where you will meet your YDM Tutor and discuss the suggested game plan. We will make sure the plan meets everyone’s needs (Student, Parent / Guardian, and Tutor) and that everyone understands their part.

Your YDM Tutor will help you learn the math you are currently covering in class, help you fill in any gaps from previous math topics, and help you discover how fun and interesting math is!
As students “truly” discover math, many realize that they enjoy math, much more than they ever realized before.
Some students go on to join the YDM Team as Math Student Leaders, and help others discover math too!
