MathVantage Innovate Teaching with Technology & Techniques


Honolulu (KHON2) –  MathVantage teaches advanced math to children as young as 12 and those who want to overcome math anxiety and sharpen their skills.

“The biggest challenge to learning math is not against a professor, parent, or classmate.  It is really against yourself.,” says Chairman Patrick Chevalier. “In my own life, I initially suffered from “math anxiety”. My fear, lack of confidence, and dislike of math translated into dismal grades. Subsequently, I created new techniques and procedures to overcome my shortcomings and became confident and comfortable. Today, I have five degrees which required excellent math abilities. I also realized that these new techniques and procedures, I could change the lives of young people as I changed my own life.”

He taught his son Kevin calculus at age 12 and saw his teaching methods were effective.

Chevalier says MathVantage is different from traditional school and tutoring centers because it has developed techniques, procedures, and a learning process over 16 years of research. Each MathVantage course is a mix of traditional lectures and an innovative tutoring system supported by a high technological environment.
