"Mental Math without tears" - With Komodo's personalised approach, your child will learn to solve complex problems in her head without any calculators. And with speed and accuracy. Our students start learning on the Japanese Soroban abacus and rapidly learn to visualize a problem and make a mental image of the abacus. In a few weeks, they learn to do problems mentally without relying on abacus. "Komodo's Language Arts (Creative Writing)" program is intended for Grades 1-5. The goal of this teacher-led program is to nurture reading and writing proficiency through theme based instructions. "Komodo's Grade Level Math" program is intended for Grades 1-6.
