Amazing Math Powers Testimonials


I was able to make a connection between the strategies taught and the scope of P.E.P.

Thank you! It was an AMAZING first round!

This was absolutely fantastic, insightful, informative, and presented in such a comprehensive manner.

This session was quite informative and the information garnered will be beneficial to my school.

The hands-on activities were unique and interesting.

The presenter was able to stimulate my ability to learn the key concepts of understanding Fractions.

Children often struggle with these concepts, however if more workshop like these could be given to parents also then the phobia for Math would be gone.

The presenter was able to elicit meaningful conversation from participants.
