Providing quality tutoring and mentorship

Our Instructors help you succeed.

Our instructors are screened from a large pool of talent and specifically chosen for their passion for teaching and competency in mathematic subject matter.

Many of our instructors have pursued or are currently pursuing math and engineering majors from respected national universities.

Note: All instructors for Thinking Tree have completed Live Scan fingerprinting and have been cleared through the Department of Justice to work with children.

Why Thinking Tree

We have modeled our curriculum on common core standards, and follow the California Department of Education’s High School Math Standards Framework. In many cases, our chapters track closely with your student's math textbook. Our take-home worksheets and interactive math tutoring will provide students with a stimulating academic experience that will boost performance in the upcoming school year.

How it works

Students take home about an hour of homework for each day of the week and can always ask their instructors questions about their homework. But we get it — it is summer after all, and the kids have plans too — so, while we don’t force our students to turn in our homework, we will send out weekly emails with answers to the worksheets or the solutions to the mid-terms.

Focused Learning

We ensure our student ratio is no larger than 1:10, so that each child gets the attention they deserve. Our sessions are priced very reasonably, and it would cost less to come to us than to hire a high-school tutor. If your child fell behind in math during the school year, or wishes to get ahead in the upcoming school year, our comprehensive curriculum serves both types of students.

FAQs:

What does a day of typical math session look like?

9 AM: Parents drop off students at the facility at the designated time.
9-9:15: Our teachers start off by spending 15 minutes reviewing the previous sessions lessons and questions from the prior meeting date.
9:15-10:15: Instructor teaches new comprehensive curriculum
10:15-10:30: Students take a 15-minute snack break (Parents: Please provide a nut-free snack and water)
10:30-11:30: Instructor continues with lessons for another hour.
11:30-Noon: Review assessment: Everyone settles down for a formative review that reviews what was taught that day and informs instructors who may be struggling in particular criteria to accommodate and scaffold their lessons accordingly.
12-12:15 *Optional: Students with questions can stay back for another 15 minutes to get their questions answered if needed.
Noon: On their way out, students take home assignments to complete. Answers will be provided for students to check their work, as this is an independent learning experience for them.

What are the instructor’s qualifications?

Our instructors typically possess or are currently pursuing math and engineering degrees in local college programs and have demonstrated a passion for teaching and competency in mathematic subject matter. All instructors for Thinking Tree have completed Live Scan fingerprinting and have been cleared through the Department of Justice.

What program is appropriate for my students current grade level?

Our typical audience is as follows:
Integrated Math-1: Incoming Freshmen during the 2019-20 school year
Integrated Math-2: Incoming Sophomores during the 2019-20 school year
Integrated Math-3: Incoming Juniors during the 2019-20 school year.
Of course, if your child’s math grade is more advanced, you are welcome to enroll them in a class that is more appropriate for your child.

Is there a restriction on which camp my child can go to based on their current grade level?

Our courses are not meant to replace the school's teaching. They are an excellent source to supplement what the kids have learned at school and so, ideally, if your kid was in 9th grade, then he/she would benefit most from the camp that teaches advanced material for that grade. However, you know your child's ability best and are best positioned to gauge their competency level. If you wish to speak to our academic counselor, please let the office know and the counselor will call you back to discuss the appropriate grade for your child.

Can my middle-schooler attend your high-school camps?

We are seeing more and more middle-schoolers enroll in our summer programs. In our experience, we see three types of middle-schoolers attending our summer programs:
If your child has prepared all through the year and has challenged the upcoming school year’s math curriculum, this is an excellent time for your child to re-take the course and get lots of practice in their target lessons. For example, an eighth grader who challenged the Integrated Math-1 course and passed the challenge test can re-enroll in the Summer IM-1 camp and get additional practice.
If your child has passed the challenge test and wishes to get a sneak-peek into the upcoming school year’s math, our camp is an excellent avenue to get this additional training. For example, if your child has challenged the IM-1 test and passed it, then enrolling into Summer IM-2 camp will be a good way to get introduced to IM-2 concepts during summer.
If your child wishes to challenge a test after summer, then please do note that our summer camps are NOT a substitute for the actual school year, they can be a source for your child’s preparation but should not be the only source. Student’s practice and comprehension of the actual topic, amongst other factors, play a vital role too.

What should my child bring to the camp?

A composition book to take notes, a calculator, a compass, a pencil, an eraser, and a pen. They can bring a light nut-free snack and water if you wish. We provide all the materials and worksheets for the students to complete in class and to take home for more practice.

What payment plans do you offer?

You can reserve a spot in our camp until with just a $50 down payment until June 3, 2019.
We offer four different payment plans to choose from at the time of registration:

Option 1: Customers can pay in full at the time of registration.
Option 2: $50 deposit and the rest in equal installments as follows: Customers choice of 2, 3, 4, or 5 installments to be paid of the remaining balance in equal installments, after the deposit has been applied.
1st installment - 5/27/2019
2nd installment- 6/27/ 2019
3rd installment-6/24/2019
4th installment-7/8/2019
5th installment-7/22/2019

A credit card should be on file for automatic payments to be eligible for the payment plans.

What is the camp’s absence policy and refund policy?

As our student to teacher ratio is very small, it is vital to keep our classes as full as possible to be able to staff the classes appropriately. If you already know your vacation plans for summer, please call the office to register and you will receive a prorated amount for the classes your child will attend. If your child has to take unscheduled time-off during the camp, we can offer a gift credit for up to 2 consecutive classes, which can be used any time in the future without an expiration. We ask for a 24-hour notice for class cancellations (Sorry, but missing the class because your child woke up late in Summer is not a valid reason for class cancellation)

Do you offer sibling discounts?

Yes. If 2 or more siblings register for the camp, we offer an automatic 5% discount to all the siblings there after the first enrollment.

What textbooks do you follow for the program?

We follow CA Department of Education’s Math Standards. The curriculum is extracted from various textbooks that our Sacramento area schools follow for middle and high school math, but not specifically from any one textbook. Our focus will be on teaching the math concepts and helping the kids with the generalization of the standard so that kids can apply the techniques they learn to any math question in their curriculum irrespective of the source textbook.

I understand and accept that there are no transfer fees when transferring to another Thinking Tree program with open space. Discounts will also be transferred as a courtesy on any transfer. If there is a difference in price between the two programs, I understand that I must pay any cost difference between the program prices. If the new program is less expensive, a Thinking Tree gift credit will be issued.

Ansence Policy

As our student to teacher ratio is very small, it is vital to keep our classes as full as possible to be able to staff the classes appropriately. I understand and accept that in the event of my child’s inability to attend classes during camp, I may receive a pro-rated gift credit of the program fee, less any discounts, for up to a maximum of 2 consecutive classes. We do require at least a 24-hour advance notice to honor the class cancellation.

Minimum Enrollment

I understand and accept that Thinking Tree requires a minimum number of participants to hold a class. In the rare event of insufficient enrollment, a full refund will be processed, and no cancellation fees will be imposed.

Returned Checks

I understand and accept that if Thinking Tree receives a returned check from their bank for a payment I made, I will be invoiced for the original amount of the check plus a $25 returned check fee. The payment of the invoiced amount will be due immediately upon receipt. Thinking Tree will not re-submit the original check, nor will they accept another check for the re-payment; a different form of payment must be submitted.

Discipline

I understand and accept that Thinking Tree must be able to conduct their programs in a respectful environment.If my child becomes so disruptive that other participants or instructors can no longer participate in the program effectively, Thinking Tree will invoke a 5-strike system:
1. verbal warning
2. 2nd verbal warning
3. private verbal warning from on-site instructor
4. phone call to parent
5. dismissal from the program without refund of any fees.

Any participant that physically harms anyone else during a program will automatically be advanced to strike 5 (mentioned above).
