“ One school district reported that overall student performance in math improved by more than 90 percent after using Tabtor Math for three months. ”
Raj Valli, Founder & CEO, Tabtor Math
Tabtor Math is an educational technology platform for tablets and a leader in personalized math tutoring for students in grades K-8. Tabtor Math is tailored to every child by a dedicated, virtual tutor using patent-pending digital-paper technology that allows sharing and review of handwritten work, automatic grading, video tutorials, mind-mapping abilities, and adaptive analytics. The award-winning Tabtor Math platform is used in private and public schools in the United States and India, and has over 60,000 registered users across 12 countries.
Just 33 percent of U.S. eighth graders score ‘proficient’ or better in math—lagging behind other nations. But without insight into how or why kids get answers wrong, how can teachers help them improve?
With Tabtor Math, an individualized math program with digital worksheets for iPad and Android tablets, tutors can see exactly how a student has tackled questions rather than just seeing their answers.
Deep insight into the thinking process, made possible with cognitive technologies, enables tutors to give individual feedback and personalize lessons—boosting their understanding and their grades!
