### "I really enjoy going to Flux's because I'm one of those kids who loves, loves, loves math and she's helping me understand the harder concepts in an easier way. It's really nice because she doesn't just give me the answers."

### -Student, Age 9

“When my son was in 4th grade, he told me he wanted to learn more math than what was being taught at school. We found Flux of Math Magic Labs and couldn't be happier. Through complex origami, engaging games, detailed geometric drawings, focused discussions, and thoughtful exercises, my son has been discovering the wonderful possibilities of math and having fun in the process. Now, as a 6th grader, he is in an 8th-grade-level math class at school and is doing well, while continuing to work with Flux and explore math more deeply.” -Parent of 5th Grader

"Thought you'd want to know that your former student got an overall Math grade of "99" in her last trimester! She is excelling across all areas of math from algebra to pre-calculus. And while it's still not her favorite subject, she is inquisitive, persistent and works hard to comprehend all types of concepts. And most importantly, she has great confidence in her math abilities!" Parent of 7th Grader

"Working with Flux has made a huge difference for our 13-year-old daughter. Her grades have improved markedly, but more importantly her confidence has increased and math is no longer a source of stress for her. I consider Flux to be an exceptional educator - along with impressive credentials that show her commitment to math education, she is very skilled at explaining math concepts in an accessible way. I couldn't recommend her more." -Parent of 8th Grader

"My son was losing interest in learning Math. Not just that, he was staring down the "I hate Math" road. Flux’s classes turned him right around. Her use of Math games got him to soften his stance. Very soon, he started leaving his sessions with a spring in his step, telling me how much fun Math was. I especially appreciate the collaborative aspect of Flux’s approach. She takes the parents' goals and the student's personality into account; to that, she adds her insight into what the student requires and creates a curriculum specially suited to the needs of that particular student/family. Importantly, in the case of my son, she worked on his negative, self-defeating talk; she's got him using more "growth-mindset" language when he encounters challenges. I love that Flux uses a variety of approaches to math instruction: board/card games, logic puzzles, screen-based math games and more traditional computational curricula on screen and paper/pencil." -Parent of 4th Grader

"I can't thank you enough for what you've done for my math. You've not only bettered my skill at math, but you've changed my entire attitude towards the subject. Math used to be my least favorite part of the day. Just today I had math and smiled the whole way through. Thank you for believing in me and teaching me to believe in myself." -5th Grader

"Her teaching is very good. Her program works well for me. She showed me the real concepts of math not just problems on a piece of paper." -4th Grader

"When I first started math tutoring in fourth grade, I was struggling with math and confused with the concepts. I asked my mom to get me a tutor and she picked Flux. At first, I was skeptical but after just a couple weeks, I felt much more confident and understanding with the concepts. I am now in seventh grade and still go to Flux and she continues to help me learn and thrive in math. I highly recommend her!" -7th Grader

"My 7th Grade daughter worked with Flux to fill in knowledge gaps and worked with her teacher to identify current content being covered in class. Flux uses multiple math tools to engage her students and showed my daughter math really can be fun! It's COOL to like math. My daughter's perception of math has changed and she now sees it as a FUN challenge. Flux’s knowledge base and creativity make her a superb tutor!" -Parent of 7th Grader

"Flux has a different perspective to teach me things I don't get at school. My favorite lesson with Flux was geometry and I made a triangular hexahedron out of paper. Flux makes math fun!" -4th Grader

"Flux is great! She loves math and readily communicates this passion. My son, who has not loved math, has been inspired by Flux and looks forward to seeing her every week. She uses a range of different strategies and materials when working with him, but what stands out to him most is how enjoyable math can be. She was also wonderful about communicating with his teacher and targeting her work with him on the areas where he needs to improve. Flux is a gem!" -Parent of 4th Grader

"Flux is a great math tutor. I used to hate math but now I love it because I learn it by playing fun logic and use fun websites and apps, for example. I really miss you Flux." -3rd Grader

"My daughter always struggled with math and, by the third grade, had declared herself 'bad at math.' I found Flux Rutherford and after just a handful of sessions, my daughter LOVES math. Her confidence has soared. She even wants to go to math camp this summer. Flux has made math fun and engaging. I can't recommend her highly enough." -Parent of 4th Grader

"My experience with Flux was short and fulfilling. I was able to reach a higher level of math comprehension in a short time. In that time I passed my GED and prepped for my entrance exams. I will definitely continue my tutoring with Flux in the future. Math, it's too cool for words." -Young Adult Learner

"Working with Flux is fun and enjoyable!" -4th Grader

"Going back to college as an adult has been a real task for me, especially in the math department. So many of the problems seemed familiar to me, but I still couldn't make sense of them. It was hard for me to finally admit that I might need help, especially since many of the other students in my class were years younger than I was. Flux was very friendly, and never made me feel inferior. She didn't speak down to me, and had a way of explaining things on a level I understood, without making me feel overwhelmed. I would greatly recommend Flux Rutherford as a math tutor." -Age 28
