Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Leaside Campus. With classes, Monday through Thursday and Saturday – the Leaside campus supports students from a wide variety of public and private schools within the area.

The students attending Leaside are highly-motivated and eager for a challenge. We meet their needs by helping them work through a series of challenging math problems that promote logical thinking and quick problem solving while working in groups to solve complex, multi-step problems.

We work closely with both students and parents/guardians alike, to help children achieve their goals as they continually improve their mathematics skills. Our unique curriculum is delivered by professional and highly trained Spirit of Math teachers who are as passionate about teaching, as your children are about learning. With our curriculum, SoM students achieve exceptional results in their day schools, in math contests, and in competitions.

I look forward to teaching, learning and working with our new and returning students and their parents/guardians throughout their Spirit of Math journey. I invite you to arrange a visit to our Leaside Campus or you can contact me for more information.

Sincerely yours,

Rebecca McClune
Campus Director

What our parents & students say!

  • Teodor Cotnareanu: "Otherwise an excellent student, at the end of Grade 4, Odette was struggling with math. We felt that we needed to do something for her,so that in grade 5, as math became harder, she would make adequate progress. She needed better guidance and more practice in an organized setting, and more development of her analytical skills. Having seen our son Joseph's success and now being familiar with Spirit of Math, we enrolled her in your school. She was faced with a very steep learning curve at the beginning, but her teacher understood the challenges that Odette faced. Odette connected with her teacher immediately; her kind style, profound empathy, and extremely competent teaching truly motivated Odette. She ended last year with over 90%. We are very happy that this year. Within a year, Odette changed from being a kid who was not sure of herself to being a top student who helps her colleagues and loves to share her knowledge. The self-confidence she gained from seeing that she can succeed in math, where she was previously insecure, spilled over into many other areas of her activity, deeply transforming her into a high achiever in all other subjects. We could not have had these two success stories without Spirit of Math. Two children, very different from each other, needing help in very different ways, benefited enormously from your program. We, just like you, approached your program on the basis of a balanced triangular relation between student, teacher and parent, and it worked!" ~ Teodor C., parent of Odette, grade 6
  • Teodor Cotnareanu: "When Joseph was in grade 5, we noticed that the math he was getting during his regular school classes was not sufficient a challenge for him. We asked his classroom teacher to give him additional math problems, but she flatly refused. During grade 5, I taught him some additional geometry from Euclid's elements at home. I noticed that while he was absorbing the concepts quite well, what we were doing at home was not good enough because there was no opportunity to practice the concepts and there was no peer group. At the beginning of the next school year, we heard about Spirit of Math. Joseph was faced with an extremely steep learning curve. Most, if not all kids in his Spirit of Math class were very far ahead of him, having started in earlier years. However, with adequate support at home and very competent and kind guidance from his teacher, Joseph finished the year with over 90%. Since then, Joseph has become independent. At his regular school he is one of the best students in his year and one of the top students in math. His teachers appreciate him for his willingness to help his colleagues and share his knowledge with them. Today, Joseph would have a hard time imagining how it would be not to go to Spirit of Math. Joseph aspires to be an assistant teacher at your school next year." ~ Teodor C., parent of Joseph, grade 8
  • Elise Yanover: "My daughter has been a Spirit of Math student since Grade 2. The experience and education she receives at this program has blown us away. For a girl to love being called "the human calculator" or "math geek" is a testament to the confidence and skills she has gained through this program. She is talking about pursuing a math/science program in high school and loves the challenging work she receives. The staff at SMS are amazing. They have always been available by phone or email to help out with questions posing problems for my daughter and she is able to use that guidance to answer them. The teachers truly have the students' best interests in mind. My daughter loves going to math class and that alone is an amazing testament to this program!" ~ Elise Y., parent of Jada, grade 7
  • Parent of Yinling: "Although Yinling just started her journey in Spirit of Math, for the first time she expressed a strong interest in math. It's amazing!" ~ Parent of Yinling, grade 3
