The Math Institute Launches Both Virtual, One-on-One, and Small Class Size Learning with Mentoring and Tutoring Programs

School has started back today and with distance learning and hybrid, more parents are resorting to tutors to complement education for their kids.

The Math Institute Launches Both Virtual, One-on-One, and Small Class Size Learning with Mentoring and Tutoring Programs

 

The Math Institute, a tutoring and mentoring firm in Las Vegas, announces its “Back to School – We Got Your Back” supplemental program and in person and online tutoring programs.! For as low as $10/hr they will ensure children are organized, attend all of their online sessions, complete all of their assignments, learn and get the extra help they need.

 

The Math Institute offers four distinct services:

  • One on One Tutoring
  • Small Group Tutoring
  • Supplemental Classes
  • Camps

 

The online class sessions engage students in a small class setting: twice/week (class with 2 students) or one on one: with 8 or 10 sessions.

 

Some of the online and in-person classes concentrate on mathematic topics including: Elementary (3rd to 5th grade), Basic (6th to 7th grade) Pre Algebra (7th to 8th grade), Álgebra (8th to 9th grade), Geometry (9th to 10th grade), Algebra II (9th to 11th grade), Pre Calc (10th to 12th grade) and Calculus (11th to 12th grade).

 

Reasons for needing additional learning classes within a smaller class size environment include:

 

✔️ Students moving to 5th grade —> Get ready for Middle School

✔️ Students starting Middle School —> To make sure the transition won’t affect them in a negative way and they’re ready for their new, higher math level.

✔️Students already in Middle School —>Filling in the gaps they’ve struggled with, in order to continue (with more confidence and success) their current middle school level.

 

All of the services give each students the personalized attention they deserve, as the largest classroom holds up to 15 students and our regular classrooms hold up to 6 students, that way the sessions exclusively focus on our student’s needs.

 

Service is available Monday – Friday 7am- 3pm and scheduled hourly, to practice social distancing protocols.

Infinity – The Math Institute is a terrestrial and online tutoring firm designed to help anyone with math education. Located at 6370 W Flamingo Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89103. For more information call, 702-768-1777, or visit the website at TheMathInstitute.com.

Las Vegas Natural History Museum Opens Summer Traveling Exhibit, In the Dark

Las Vegas Natural History Museum Opens Summer Traveling Exhibit, In the Dark

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum (LVNHM), located at 900 Las Vegas Boulevard in the downtown Las Vegas cultural corridor, announces the opening of a new traveling exhibit, In the Dark.

Darkness beckons exploration and represents the unknown, but it’s also a natural evolutionary pressure that caused plants and animals to adapt. This exhibit invites visitors to discover the dark, often unseen, ecosystems of the world like caves, the deep sea, the forest at night, and underneath the ground. Guests explore these mysteries via electronic, mechanical and computer interactives, immersive dioramas, and lifelike models.

“In the heat of the summer, this is the perfect exhibit to immerse our guests into the dark, cool places of the world while showcasing the amazing adaptations of the plants and animals who live there,” said Marilyn Gillespie, Executive Director of the Las Vegas Natural History Museum.

In the Dark is included with Museum Admission or Membership.

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum reopened on June 1st with new protocols for guests to safely and comfortably experience exhibits and educational programming, following CDC guidelines.

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum began in 1989 with a small group of citizens who knew the community would benefit from the educational resources it could provide. After very humble beginnings, this private non-profit museum is now a Smithsonian Affiliate, accredited with the American Alliance of Museums, and is a federal and state repository for fossils and artifacts. From the desert to the ocean, from Nevada to Africa, from prehistoric times to the present, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum takes visitors of all ages on a learning adventure around the world.

Please visit www.lvnhm.org, follow on Facebook at Las Vegas Natural History Museum; and @LVHNMuseum on Twitter and Instagram. For additional information, please call (702) 384-3466
