We began with a name and changed it to
When we founded this company in 2010, we chose the name Tabtor because it was a combination of “tablet” and “tutor.” Unfortunately, our clever wordsmith-ing didn’t translate to something meaningful to a majority of our students, partners, and greater community, so we wanted to choose a new name that truly resonated with our approach to math education.
We picked a name that represented our philosophy of learning.  It also makes “thinking” cool and also encourages our students to become thinkers. We’ve had great success with our educational approach on “thinking” (more on that below), and wanted a stronger brand that embodies this success, along with our vision of transforming the way the world looks at learning.
Becasue we spark Thinking.
Thinkster is a math tutoring program that leverages human interaction and groundbreaking artificial intelligence to create personalized learning programs. Our technology actually tracks how a child arrives at an answer, something that after-school “learning centers” have long overlooked.
Our students experience our uniqe approach to learning that makes them -
1. Become aware of content and information
The result? Learning that evolves into lifelong education.
Think about this:  If you only know English, can I expect to get an intelligent response if I spoke with you only in German?
Do you think that we can converse better if both of us spoke the same common language?
We create lifelong learners
by anchoring problems to the real-life situations.
For example, here’s a word and number problem that involves distractors: 

You have three apples, four oranges, and five carrots in a basket. How many pieces of fruit are there? Students have to understand they can’t just add the numbers to get the answer. Instead, they have to realize that carrots are not fruit, and remove that from consideration. This teaches them contextual skills.
The reason we present problems this way is because we don’t want students to think that numbers only belong in a number line. Four isn’t simply a number that comes after three and before five. We want our students to realize that each number occupies a position in space — that four can be four units added to each other, or it can be 2 plus 2, or 6 minus 2, or 9 minus 5.
We want our students to implicitly understand that math isn’t simply numbers. It’s a language. The more nuanced their understanding, the easier it will be to develop confidence and fluency.
We Make Math Champions
Imagine you’re on the tennis court with a coach. He doesn’t just hold your hand and hit volleys with your tennis racquet. Instead, he teaches you to think about the angle of the ball and the different ways you can hit. This is how tennis champions are made. 

Your coaches have the same goal: To make math champions. Thinkster coaches don’t just observe how our students work out problems. They understand and visualize their thinking using our Active Replay Technology (ART), identify where students make mistakes, and provide guidance so students can solve new problems that improve their understanding of math.
We breathe innovation
We use artificial intelligence and machine learning to visualize how a student is thinking  while he or she works on a problem. This helps improve how fast and precisely our teachers can spot problem areas. 

This is about being nimble, about innovating and about significantly enhancing learning outcomes!
We know accelerated learning means accelerated understanding of life and opportunities for growth.
All of this happened because we care deeply about our students.
We spend each and every day turning our students into Thinksters.
We welcome you to embrace our new name and framework for education.  
As math is a language.
2. Absorb what is being presented
3. Process the information
4. Interact with the problem
5. Probe, think, resolve and figure out how to    answer the problems

Thinkster is a math tutoring program that leverages human interaction and groundbreaking artificial intelligence to create personalized learning programs. Our technology actually tracks how a child arrives at an answer, something that after-school “learning centers” have long overlooked.

We are firm believers that thinking is the foundation of learning. It’s about sparking “thinking” – because it makes us understand the “why” behind everything.
Whereas traditional teaching makes students vulnerable to just following steps — they figure out “rules” to “answer” questions — learning through thinking helps people problem solve in a variety of contexts.
When we help students understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, it becomes a life-long learning opportunity. It’s what students need for the real world.
Our expert coaches are available to help your child with their homework problems. Our comprehensive test prep program will ensure your child achieves better grades with greater confidence.
