Company Profile

 

Established in April 2013, Abacus 4 Kids possesses the passion to make a difference in kids’ math -

learning journey.  Our program trains the kids to be able to do mental calculation with great speed

and accuracy using the ancient calculation tool called abacus (aka soroban in Japanese).

From a humble beginning of less than 20 students in 1 location, we now have nearly 200 students

across 6 different locations (as at March 2017). With this growth, we have an online system to keep

track of individual student’s weekly progress which is accessible by parents. Verbal feedback is also

given to parents after each class.

Our teachers are carefully selected and receive regular training to maintain a high standard of

teaching. Persisting on small class of 6 enables the teachers to give good amount of attention to

each student. Homework is included as an essential part of the learning, reinforcing the formulas

and skills learnt in weekly class.

Our material is specially and carefully designed by our Director who has received the professional

training from PAMA and CMA.  The material includes a whole teaching of abacus technique to fully

engage students in many different ways of mastering the skills of abacus.

With great honour, our school is acknowledged to be the only member to represent Australia in

PAMA Global since 2016. Through this membership, we are given the privilege to send our students

to participate in the annual international abacus competition. We also organise international grading

exams locally for all our students, in both abacus and mental arithmetic, which motivate our

students to excel in their journey of learning abacus.

The method of learning and exams combined are to train our students to maintain the international

standard of using abacus. Our aim is to make mental arithmetic a lifetime automatic calculating skill

for the students so that they can apply more of their cognitive resources towards higher-level

understanding in complicated math problems.
