  • Start with basic topics and then takes students to much higher level to prepare them for high school math
  • After sucessful completion of this level, child is ready for Honors Geometry and/or Honors Algebra 2
Rising 7th grader can join this course if he/she passes placement test of 7A and 7B both.  Placement tests are avaialble at free of cost.  Placement Test 7A        Placement Test 7B

LOM's math is known for it's higher level of curriculum and it's methodology.

In general, most schools teach students “how to solve a problem”, they don’t teach students why they are doing these steps, and concepts are not always clear. I enrolled my daughter in the Algebra II because I realized she was only learning steps of solving problems, basically memorizing how to solve them without understanding concepts and without having the ability to approach a problem that she didn’t encounter before, because she was memorizing steps and not understanding concepts. This program teaches students concepts and a problem solving approach so the student will understand what to do verses just going through steps.  They teach students independent thinking and various ways of solving problems without completely depending on calculators which is heavily used in Algebra 2 classes in schools. Parent: Safa Jibrin
Thanks to Alpa’s patient, methodical, and personalized approach, my daughter not only passed the exam but also gained a new sense of confidence in her math skills.
Alpa went above and beyond to help my daughter prepare for her exam (eligibility for Honors Algebra 1) in a short time. She took the time to understand my daughter's learning style and tailored her lessons accordingly. She provided clear explanations, helpful examples, and plenty of practice problems that challenged my daughter in just the right way. She also offered valuable study tips and test-taking strategies that proved invaluable on the day of the exam.
She communicates clearly and promptly and is always willing to answer any questions or concerns that arise.
Overall, I can't recommend Alpa enough. She has truly made a positive impact on my daughter's education and I know that my daughter will be more confident in math with her help next year.
Thank you,
Sibel K.
 “Mrs. Alpa really helped me during my Algebra 1 journey. For starters, she made the environment friendly, so I felt comfortable asking questions. If I was struggling with a concept, we reviewed it and strengthened my skills. Without her help, I don’t know if I could’ve worked through the course as fast and with a good understanding. I scored a full 100!! And I'm finished with Honors Algebra 1!!! Yah!!! Now onto Honors Geometry!!! Thank you so much for your help; I wouldn't have finished this course without you.”
