By showing students multiple ways to solve a problem their understanding of how numbers work will grow. These mental strategies will help build confidence, speed, problem solving and reasoning skills. Math Monkey places each student in classes based on where they ARE, rather than age or grade. This makes the program a great fit for students that may have lost confidence to those that are gifted and need to be challenged.

Sarah
Sarah is mama to 9-year-old, Henry, 6-year-old Clark and 4-year-old Lucy. After growing up in Manhattan, Kansas (Go Cats!), she moved to Minnesota where she met her husband, Shea. Realizing how much she hated snow in May, she convinced him to move to Kansas City in 2010. Together they have lived in Midtown, Waldo, the Plaza before migrating to Johnson County. Sarah has her master’s in urban administration and is currently in the Kansas City Centurions program. In between the crazy, she likes to drink coffee, run, travel (but never to the same place twice), and experience all things Kansas City!
