This new program, under the banner of "One Billion Math Minds," aims to grow math tutoring access and equity regardless of student location, economic ability or background. Today's top jobs all require a deep understanding of algorithms and math logic.1 However, the World Bank projects $10 trillion in lost future earnings for children due to the pandemic2 if they do not make up lost or delayed skills such as math. Cuemath's free access hopes to boost math knowledge and ready students for the jobs of the future.
As students struggle to recover from pandemic learning challenges, Cuemath's tutoring platform offers live and engaging one-on-one online sessions. Globally, more than 300,000 students are already improving their math skills using Cuemath, and the company hopes to double enrollment each month into 2022.
More than half of public-school K-12 teachers said in a recent study3 that the pandemic has resulted in a "significant" learning loss. And new evidence shows that the pandemic widened pre-existing achievement disparities in math.4 By offering free access directly to students to catch up, Cuemath also lessens the burden on teachers, schools and governments to make up the skill difference. Students can go at their own pace and be better prepared for the coming school year.
