DISCIPLINE is the key for child to be successful in short time when using video courses.
Physical Abacus tool and material: This option is available only for residents of USA.
If you need a physical abacus tool and want us to ship it to you, please add $30 in your first payment along with level fees. This is a onetime buy.
Also, if you want us to ship material it will be $40 per level. Shipping is $20. You can opt out of .pdf assignments in place of physical material.
You can use a digital abacus tool in place of physical one. There are free as well as some paid apps that allow you to download Abacus tool. Look for Japanese Soroban.
Make sure you have either physical abacus tool or digital one before you purchase the level. We can recommend some apps if you would like.
WHAT LOM PROVIDES: Every level will come with video lessons and .pdf assignments that you can print. It is recommended to print those assignment pages and have your child work on the assignments with pencil. However you can just display them on screen and child works out in a note book.
Video lessons access time: 4 months to 6 months maximum access will be given per level depending upon the level. If needed more time, an additional charge of $59.99 per month will be applied.
What if my child finish the level before 4 months?: Considering child can finish the level before 4 months, upon request for next level to be opened before 4 months, first level access will be removed and next level will be available once payment is received.
Would I get refund or roll over fees if my child finishes the level before 4 months?
NO. Purpose of video courses is to give total flexibility so child can learn on his or her pace. $159.99 per level is a flat rate for 4 months access to videos per level.
Refund Policy: NO REFUND in any case. All purchases are final. Whether you use video lessons or .pdf for assignments or not, once you pay there is no refund. Check out Teaching videos and Work sheets below if you need to before making a purchase.
How much involvement is needed from a parent? : Parents need to make a game plan on when child will be working on the video lessons on regular basis. Few kids require parents to sit with them, few are independent worker, and few takes little time to understand how the process works. It is all depend on an individual student. Even in our physical classes or online interactive classes, we have seen a little parents involvement makes a huge difference in child’s success. We DO NOT EXPECT parent to teach, we want them to provide a strong support to their child. We want parent to help child play video lessons, and make sure child does the required assignments.
Can we skip any level or start from higher level: Each level is based on previous level’s skills. Every one starts from level 1.
