The immediate goal of iLEAP is to help students transition to the Common Core State Standards. The long term goal is to help students accelerate through Common Core curriculum and achieve top grades while taking honors math classes.  With solid foundation in math accelerated through elementary and middle school, students will be able to take rigorous courses, pursue advanced studies, conduct science research, and pave their pathways to top colleges.

iLEAP Math offers individualized learning, small group tutoring, and accelerated curriculum based on Common Core Standards for students in grades 2-8. To sign up, follow the instructions below:

  • Schedule a Common Core Diagnostic Exam. The comprehensive diagnostic exam will take about 50 - 90 minutes, and will be $50.00 each, which count as new student registration fee. Click here to sign up.
  • Select Class and Location: iLEAP class placement is based on the results of the diagnostic exam.  Once placed in a level, students are able to control their own pace of learning.  They can advance to the next level whenever they are ready.
  • Complete Enrollment: enrollment is based on 10-week session similar to other Avid programs. Whenever possible, we will group 3-5 students of similar learning levels into small groups.

Materials

There is a materials fee of $35.00 per session.  It covers the costs of math contest participation fees, classroom handouts, problem sets, and other instructional materials.  It does not cover the costs of problem solving textbooks.

Problem Solving Textbook

Some of the classes require textbooks.  Problem solving textbook prices range from $45.00 - $75.00 depending on the training program.  The cost of the textbook will be billed separately.
