Dedicated to serve young learners of mathematics

Who is Gigamind Explorer?

Gigamind Explorer Education is founded by a group of professionals in the Education, Psychology and STEM fields in 2011. Our educators have a special dedication to serving young learners of mathematics. Gigamind has been promoting the abacus and math olympiad programs in the Bay Area and offering classes in different after-schools.

 

Our educators are certificated instructors of Abacus Calculation with Two Hands and Mental Arithmetic Skill and Math Olympiad.  All of our instructors have teaching experiences (Pre-K-12) in the U.S. and other Asian countries. Our curriculum is designed according to the child’s growth and psychological development. Our materials are created and modified based on a group of teachers’ years of professional teaching experience. 

We respect and value every child's individual development and learning ability. As a nonprofit organization serving the education community, our mission is to promote children's positive attitude and inspire their interest in learning math.

My 5 year old has been coming here for about half a year. I simply wanted him to gain a better sense of numbers and foster a love for math. So far he has achieved both. He understands how 10 ones equals 1 ten and so on because of the abacus...  Now he actually knows what the numbers mean. I'm hoping he continues to enjoy "playing" with numbers.
