Hi Andrew! Tell us about yourself and your family. What are your children’s ages?
I have 2 daughters that are in middle school, one in grade 8 and the other in grade 6
What is your position at Ten Marks? How long have you worked there?
I am the co-founder and President of TenMarks. I started here about 3 ½ yrs ago with my co-founder Rohit before we were a “company” just an idea. Now we’re a company providing great user experiences to students, parents and teachers to make a difference to kids futures.
What is the best part of your job at Ten Marks?
Getting to work with inspiring educators every day and helping to make their life a little easier.
Which is your personal favorite feature of the Ten Marks program? Why?
I really like the way that the system can provide a hint or a video less right at the exact moment that a student realizes that they need help with a concept. We believe that moment when they realize they need help is when they are most receptive to learning.
How do you personally support your own children’s maths learning?
Both my daughters use TenMarks and we try to take advantage of local resources in Boston, MA that can expose them to real world applications of math, like the MIT museum. And of course we make sure that they get their homework done :-)
Which other online maths program do you admire? Why?
For young students I like what DreamBox has done to create an engaging experience to expose the early learners to math.
What are your predictions for the next year of online maths programs?
I believe that you will see teachers and schools continue to adopt on-line maths programs as a way to efficiently deliver differentiated learning. And that you will see more programs that help pull parents into the process.
