Become better at math with Soroban! Your child will learn how to visualize math to develop solid fundamentals and eventually do mental math like a champ! All while having a good time and building their confidence. All classes are held in English, but we can support in Japanese as needed. In addition, flash mental arithmetic will also be taught once a certain level is achieved.

Instructed by Mr. Tom Sato. He majored in Economics, and is a reader of Japan's Christmas Cup and English Reading Arithmetic Contest. He has won the NY tournament and the US tournament, and has won many prizes. He learned the abacus from elementary school as his mother runs multiple soroban schools in NY called "The Soroban School". Tom returned to Japan to continue teaching Soroban.
