WorldSpeak Elementary School for Gifted offers an intensive math program based on the UCLA Math Circle curriculum written by the LACM Director, Dr. Olga Radko, and a UCLA math professor, LACM Chief Curriculum Developer, Dr. Oleg Gleizer.

Russian school of mathematics and Math Circle program helps a child to develop mathematical thinking and acquire deep understanding of mathematical concepts, which help in succeeding in math and life in the future.

The approach we use helps a child to develop mathematical thinking and acquire deep understanding of mathematical concepts, which help in succeeding in math and life in the future.

The program is designed to be fun and entertaining. Most of the time, children don’t even think that our course is a math class as it naturally feels engaging and interesting.

WorldSpeak 2017 teaching team:
– Dr. Luminita Vese (UCLA Math Professor;  Lead of the program)
– Teacher Sergei (MA in Applied Mathematics and MA in Computer Science)
– Teacher David (Math Teacher, 1st–5th grades)
– Teacher Angelika (Master of Arts, WorldSpeak Elementary Head of School)

The program is designed to be fun and entertaining.
Most of the time, children don’t even think that our course is a math class as it naturally feels engaging and interesting.
Your children may enroll in the higher-level class regardless of their age, if the needed knowledge is shown at the evaluation test.
