A Chat with Maryland STEM Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At Maryland S.T.E.M. Academy we have formerly CERTIFIED TEACHERS WITH CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE facilitating our tutoring sessions. And, we use a FILL-IN THE GAPS approach to tutoring which means we assess our students to develop a truly personalized tutoring plan for each student.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Our program provides all course materials. We provide Common Core based Assessments, Common Core based Tutoring Lessons, and Common Core based Practice Problems. The students do not need to bring anything to the tutoring sessions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When Common Core was first introduced to me about 5 years ago, I knew when it became the required curriculum students were going to struggle with it. As a result, I wanted to start a company that help students understand Common Core math.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the appreciation I receive from students when they start excelling in Common Core math. I love how excited students become about math when they truly understand it. And I truly love proving to students they can excel in math when they think it is impossible.
