WHAT IS YOUR INSTRUCTOR TO MEMBER RATIO?We have a 3 members to 1 instructor ratio with individual 1:1 time with a dedicated instructor.
DO YOU GROUP MEMBERS BY GRADE LEVEL OR WILL MY CHILD BE MIXED WITH CHILDREN OF ALL AGES?Classes are grouped by grade level, however, we want our members to progress at their own pace.
MY CHILD IS GIFTED & TALENTED, DO THEY HAVE TO WORK ON GRADE LEVEL IF GROUPED WITH SAME GRADE LEVEL MEMBERS?If members prove the ability to be placed in a more advanced class during the 1:1 diagnostic test, or during class, we will move them to a higher grade level.
DO YOU TAILOR THE CURRICULUM TO MY CHILD’S NEEDS?Yes. We host a 1:1 assessment to figure out where your child’s strengths and weaknesses are and create a plan with milestones to excel.
HOW WILL MY CHILD BE ASSESSED?We test students on all topics in the common core as well as assessing fundamental skills such as logical reasoning, spatial reasoning, and abstract thinking, as they apply to mathematics.
HOW DOES SCHEDULING WORK?Members join for one 2-hour class once per week on a dedicated day. Parents do not need to schedule classes each week. If a member cannot attend a class, we provide make up options.
HOW LONG ARE CONTRACTS?Contracts are month to month
IS THERE A FEE IF MY CHILD DOES THE DIAGNOSTIC BUT DOESN'T ENROLL?No, we don’t charge for the diagnostic exam.
WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF YOUR INSTRUCTORS? CAN MY CHILD WORK WITH THE SAME INSTRUCTOR EVERY TIME?Our instructors are trained math tutors and have gone through a rigorous Rocket Club training program. All of our tutors are hired because of outstanding experience and expertise as educators and they work closely with our curriculum team to prepare for lessons and meet your child’s unique needs. We have found a lot of success with members typically having the same instructor, and strive to keep instructors matched with members.
HOW ARE CLASSES RUN?Each class features a combination of group work, self-guided learning and homework help. Our instructors use games and activities to engage students in active learning while giving them individualized instruction. Our activities engage a variety of different learning styles and creative skills that our students use in mathematics.
CAN I SIGN UP FOR ROCKET CLUB ACADEMY (CAREER DISCOVERY PROGRAM) & ROCKET CLUB MATH?Not yet. We are working on a combination class in the future, but for now they are separate programs.
DO YOU HAVE TEST PREP?We create a custom plan for each individual member. If a member needs Test Prep, we tailor their curriculum to their needs. Our instructors are trained with many tests, including New York State exams, and are prepared to support your student’s testing needs.
WHY DON'T YOU ASSIGN HOMEWORK?We do not assign homework, but we do assign fun, challenging, optional projects where members can earn additional Rocket Fuel and revisit ideas from class during the week.
WHAT MATH METHOD DO YOU TEACH? MY CHILD DOES TERC/SINGAPORE MATH, HOW WILL YOU HELP THAT METHOD DURING HOMEWORK TIME?Our curriculum aligns with common core, however if your child has been learning a different technique, our instructors are trained to continue teaching with all methods.
I AM ON THE WAITLIST FOR ROCKET CLUB ACADEMY, CAN I START WITH THE MATH PROGRAM AND THEN SWITCH INTO THE ACADEMY?Yes, and your child’s Rocket Fuel will translate between the programs.
HOW CAN I REVIEW MY CHILD’S PROGRESS?Parents receive a weekly progress report about what their child is working on in class. Parents can also check progress and milestones on an interactive online resume.
