**Where Young Enthusiasts Train to Excel In Competitive Mathematics**

In 2012, MathGenius was developed in response to a need we perceived in the Tallahassee Community. Our oldest son had developed a love of competitive mathematics and began participating in events such as Mu Alpha Theta and middle school MathCounts. He did well in these competitions, finishing 1^{st} in State MathCounts two times during his middle school career, and placing 7^{th} Nationally as an 8^{th} grader. In 2017, he finished 1^{st} in the national “Who Wants to Be a Mathematician?” competition.

Realizing that students with a love of competitive mathematics had nowhere to “train” for their competitions, we began MathGenius.

We now offer classes at the Elementary, Middle and High School level. Because we don’t believe that age or school grade level is the best indicator of ability, we administer a placement test to all of our students and place them into a class that we think is best suited to their level of ability. Thus, we have 4^{th} graders in with 6^{th} graders, middle schoolers in with high school students. We generally take students beginning in the 4^{th} grade, but we will accept exceptional 3^{rd} graders. Unlike a regular school classroom, we tend to teach to the highest ability student in each class.

CLASS SCHEDULE AND COST

MathGenius classes are offered on a semester basis in the fall and spring.

Each class meets one day a week.Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

classes meet from 6:00 - 7:30 in the evening. Sunday classes meet from

1:00 - 2:30 and from 2:30 - 4:00. Each class is designed to focus on the

ability level of the students in the class based on their performance on

the placement test.

The students are given homework each week and are expected to complete

the work prior to class the following week.

Each semester consists of a minimum of 12 class sessions.

The cost for each semester is $175.
