A revolutionary way to learn math online
Live online teaching
Now looks like this
By relatable, brilliant people
Anchored by expertise
Are you in any math class from Pre-Algebra through Geometry, and find it easy? Welcome to the best online math classes for launching your potential into the stratosphere!
Our live math courses don't just accelerate. We go deep. And inspire. We cover math from competitions like MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10, as tools to teach you to invent.
Then we add personality: real, interesting people. Our new tech blows up interactivity (and looks nice). It's the fun of Instagram Live and Twitch, applied to serious education, for the first time.

Meet the Math Streamers
Learn from the brilliant high school students in Po-Shen Loh's nationwide program which finds exceptional math students and teaches them improvisational comedy and performance. They hone magnetic communication skills by live-streaming their teaching.
The application process is as competitive as top college admission.
You're not alone anymore. We've solved the problem of Zoom class being so boring that everyone secretly watches YouTube instead. The breakthrough was to put the chat on-screen, as a centerpiece to focus discussion and interaction. How? By moderating it. A feature that is not available in Zoom.
In each class, two live-streamers teach 40 students. Ideas flow in so many more ways, and elevate the excitement level of the class. This teaching style is our unique combination of performance techniques from improv comedy, combined with broad math expertise.

Live interaction? Or professional math insight and expertise, with crystal clear, polished, explanations? Who says you can't have both? Our live-streamers multiply the Prof. Loh effect by interspersing his short pre-recorded clips. With our technology, when they smoothly ask, “Prof. Loh, what do you think?”, it's just like he's in the room too.
We've cracked the code. Online courses are now more lively than in person. This lets us create class cohorts without geographical limitations. You don't have to squeeze your schedule around an 8pm class, or wait for the next season to enroll in a camp. Just share your times of availability, and our system will automatically search for schedules that match. We'll contact you as soon as we create a new meeting time that suits you.
Actual Course Footage
Words can't describe how engaging and immersive this new experience is. See our techniques at work in this raw (unedited) video capture from an hour-long Zoom class, taught by multiple former MATHCOUNTS state representatives. Audio and video from students in the class has been blocked for privacy. The people in the video are the brilliant high school math students who are teaching. The on-screen chat messages show their students participating in the discussion.
The backbone of middle school math competitions. Efficiently covers important topics that are not part of standard school curriculum. Modules are available for a wide range of levels, from middle and elementary school students familiar with Pre-Algebra, to high school students who need to learn Combinatorics and Number Theory for high school math contests.
Classes per Module
Each 60–90 minutes long. Structured around big questions that you get to think about, and discuss your ideas. Our streamers improvisationally lead students to discover how their ideas could contribute to a solution, before Prof. Loh's segment provides comprehensive coverage.
Carefully Designed Problems
Each module contains over 150 specially crafted problems, each of which teaches new concepts. Many are quite challenging. You'll discover abilities you never knew you had. Includes homeworks and practice tests.
Our LIVE courses are priced at just under $20/hour. They follow the same curriculum as our self-paced courses (which have been taken by thousands of students).
Introduction (Module 0)
An efficient tour through all areas of beyond-curricular math (aligned with MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8). Teaches topics in Algebra, Geometry, Combinatorics, Number Theory, and Probability. Designed to inspire students to love challenging math.
Algebra Basics (Module 1)
A deep dive into the algebraic concepts which can be understood with just a Pre-Algebra background (prerequisite knowledge: decimals, fractions, and percents). These concepts form the majority of the early problems on MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8.
Geometry (Module 2)
Rapidly teaches geometrical concepts through custom-designed problems that are understandable to students who have not yet taken a proof-based high school geometry course. Covers geometry which appears in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10.
Combinatorics (Module 3)
A systematic introduction to one of the most interesting math subjects which is not taught in the standard school curriculum, but which often appears in hard problems on math contests. Covers concepts in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12, and AIME.
Algebra Tools (Module 4)
Since algebraic problems appear twice as frequently as other subjects on MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8, this course makes a second pass at algebra, covering more advanced topics that Algebra Basics (Module 1) did not have time for.
Number Theory (Module 5)
Our most challenging course. A systematic introduction to abstract concepts across number theory, illustrated through custom-designed problems that make difficult-to-grasp ideas concrete. Covers concepts in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12, and AIME.
Answer a few questions, and we will recommend a track.
Have you taken any systematic math contest classes outside of school which are beyond Algebra?
Each introductory course costs $399, for 20 hours of instruction (~$20/hour).
We are running a comprehensive and systematic academic year program. It's the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn challenging math during the school year. View the full breadth of our offerings by clicking on the button below.
Free Demo Class and Info Session
Prof. Loh regularly holds interactive information sessions for parents, where he explains the power of our teaching philosophy and our new live video technology. He also explains the curriculum, and guides parents on what courses their students should start with.
