Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a full ride to Duke University.
“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”
"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."
"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."

Atlanta Public Schools follow the Georgia Standards of Excellence in Mathematics (GSE). These standards help ensure that teachers access the resources they need to prepare their students for assessments. One of the overarching goals is to teach students how to use what they know to find new information.
For students in kindergarten through 5th grade, math textbooks focus on using physical manipulatives and engaging examples to help students improve their problem-solving skills. For example, kindergarten students learn counting, addition and subtraction, and the basics of place value. Fifth-grade students work on fractions, basic geometry, and algebraic thinking.
Middle school math students focus on applying math concepts and skills to relatable, real-world scenarios to solve problems. In 6th grade, students learn about ratios, single-variable equations, fractions, and data distributions. By the end of 8th grade, students should understand irrational numbers, integer exponents, and the Pythagorean Theorem.
High school math material focuses on getting students ready for college in five areas of math: number and quantity, algebra, geometry, functions, and statistics and probability. Students are encouraged to use logical reasoning to solve problems and correctly use appropriate tools (e.g., protractors, calculators).
Like schoolchildren throughout the US, Atlanta students earned lower scores on the state's standardized assessments in 2021 than in previous years. This drop in test scores correlates to students' attendance and remote learning challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Only 34% of Atlanta Public Schools students in 3rd through 8th grade took the assessment in 2021, and only 28% scored high enough to be considered proficient in math.
Of the 2021 Georgia graduating class, 41% took the SAT exam sometime in high school. The average score on the exam's math section was 534 out of a maximum score of 800. Additionally, 88,524 Georgia high school students took the PSAT or the PSAT 10 exam during the 2020-2021 academic year. The average score in the math section was 480.
In 2019 (the most recent year for which data is available), an estimated 49% of graduating seniors in Georgia took the ACT. The average score on the math portion of the test was 20.7, and 40% of graduates met the ACT Math College Readiness Benchmark. The average composite score for Georgia students was 21.4, which is higher than the national average of 20.7.
