CEO & Co-Founder @ Woot Math addresses arguably the single biggest pain point in education - making all students algebra-ready. The areas that keep students from succeeding in math are finite and well understood. Woot Math addresses these with a platform that takes the best instructional content and adaptively tailors that content to meet each student's personal needs. Woot Math doesn’t seek to replace the teacher, but to provide tools that make teachers more effective in reaching more students.
