Aspire Math Academy has also worked closely with Singapore Math trainers, including the Davidson Group. We have taught Singapore Math training in Canada for grades K-7. Aspire Math Academy helps our teachers develop from a memorized content delivery to a more problem-solving, conceptual approach. We help to ensure our teacher trainees develop confidence and the conceptual understanding needed to excel in their profession. We work closely with educational institutions to provide exceptional coaching, themed workshops, annual support for teachers, and follow up analysis.
