Since 2004, Whizz Education has pioneered online, personalized learning in math. Math-Whizz started as a parent’s desire to help his own children learn math and was coupled with a need for an online product that could successfully simulate a live tutoring experience resulting measurable progress. Today, Math Whizz is used by thousands of students worldwide and includes Math-Whizz Teachers’ Resource and Math-Whizz Tutoring Plus.  The company was founded on the belief that every child deserves a learning experience that caters to their individual needs and pace of learning.

In this webinar, co-founder and CEO Richard Marett will take the audience through the design of the Math Whizz content for early grades, and share the live tutoring feature that assists children who are struggling.  Richard will also share the teachers' resources and discuss how school communities have benefited from Math Whizz.  Richard holds a BA and MA in Mathematics from Oxford University and previously worked in the finance and banking sectors.  He founded Math Whizz in 2004 with a mission to enable individuals, families, and communities to reach their full potential, through effective personalized learning, worldwide.
