Giraffe A+ Math

There are no gifted kids, only forward learners.

Giraffe A+ program is the only program in Greater Vancouver that focuses on forward learning – study beyond grade level. Most students learn Math as a requirement, with no motivation to learn ahead or to self-challenge. Meanwhile, under the current education system, teachers do not have the duty or interest to instruct students with advanced math knowledge even though such knowledge is essential to students’ success in their Grade 11 and 12. That’s why we want them to learn forward in order to push themselves beyond their limits at their early ages.

 

For Whom?

  • Local BC students
  • Currently in Grade K-10
  • Using English as the primary language in learning
  • Students who need extra practice to assist their school work
  • Students who experience minimal difficulties at school and want to be more advanced
  • Students who lack understanding in their earlier grades

What Can You Expect?

  • 75% of students improve in-school performance by at least 20% within the first 3 months
  • 90% of students complete their grade-level math (e.g. Grade 6 student completing Grade 6 math) within 35 class hours
  • 92% of participants are at least 1 year ahead of their grade level (e.g. Grade 4 learning Grade 5) after participating in Giraffe A+ Math for more than one year
  • 83% of participants are at least 2 years ahead of their grade level (e.g. Grade 5 learning Grade 7 or above) after participating in Giraffe A+ Math for more than one year

“School never gave me enough time to focus on one subject, and I really don’t understand the full concepts. At Giraffe, I am able to think everything I feel confused and ask for help when I need it. ” – Kyle C.

 

“I am a grade 5 student, and I think I am different from my fellow classmates. I can already solve grade 8 math problems. ” – William W.

The Giraffe Method

Both Giraffe A+ math and A+ English use “The Giraffe Method” (click to watch our video for details), a method of learning created by the founders of Giraffe to ensure every student learns at their own pace, while also learning topics beyond their grade level.

Classes will have a maximum of 4 students at a time where the instructor will hand out worksheets to each student. Students will begin by reading the new material, which also includes examples and exercises. If students have questions at any time, the instructor is there to help. At the end of class, homework will be given out that must be done by the next class. At the beginning of class, instructors will mark their homework and students must fix all their mistakes in the homework before moving on to new material.

Although it depends on your kid, most current students take 2 classes at Giraffe per week to allow for progression and balance with school. Students who want to learn more are suggested to take 3-4 classes per week. One class is one hour long.

Who Are Your Instructors?

The founders of Giraffe have obtained their master’s degrees, are UBC alumni, and are currently studying at Harvard University for their second master’s degree. Giraffe hires instructors who have recently obtained their bachelor degree, or who are currently in their 3rd year or above in pursuing their bachelor’s degree. Giraffe instructors are from UBC, University of Toronto, and other prestigious universities in North America. We only hire candidates from these universities to ensure that they have a strong academic background and have the most recent knowledge about cutting edge technology. All members of Team Giraffe teach depending on their schedules; however, unless for private classes, students who are in 4-person classes cannot select instructions.

How to Track My Progress?

Giraffe Learning uses a scientific way to measure success. We record, assess, and analyze students’ progress to constantly adjust their learning plans. We acknowledge and celebrate every little success. Our regular assessment and monthly reports allow you to visualize your children’s progress and improvement. We also re-assess students every 3 months to help the student pick up any knowledge points he/she has lost along the way. Click to learn details about the Giraffe Insight.
