Gideon Math & Reading - SW McKinney
Gideon Math & Reading Programs offers a structured approach to improving math and reading skills in children aged four and above. They believe in using pencil and paper instead of excessive screen time, as it aids in better memorization. The program consists of step-by-step booklets with mastery standards to ensure real academic progress. Gideon Math & Reading in SW McKinney, TX, is one of their centers located at the NE corner of Hwy 121 and Custer near Target. The center offers regular class hours from Monday to Thursday, with additional hours for new student placements on Fridays and Saturdays. Pricing is determined after a free student placement evaluation, and classes are typically attended twice a week for 20-30 minutes per subject. The center maintains a low student-to-teacher ratio for personalized attention and focuses on building confidence through mastery.
Gideon Math & Reading is a family business owned by Aarti Dewan, who has a Texas teaching certification from SMU. After searching for an enrichment program for her own children, she was impressed with Gideon's philosophy and curriculum and decided to open her own center in 2014. She opened the SW McKinney location in 2018 to make the benefits of Gideon accessible to more families in the area. Aarti aims to provide a personalized experience for each child, with lessons based on their ability and mastery rather than grade or age assignment. The center focuses on helping children gain knowledge, skills, confidence, and self-discipline through their programs.
