Our Belief: Zeal believes that great teaching is the key to students' love of math. At Zeal, we support teachers by giving every student a live math coach to bring out their best.
The Problem: Students’ math knowledge is like Swiss Cheese. Every student has gaps, even top students. Because math builds on itself, gaps prevent students from understanding, progressing and loving math. With today’s large class sizes and many student gaps, this creates an enormous challenge for teachers.
The Zeal Approach: Zeal supports great teachers by giving every student their own live math coach, an educator who works with that student to help them build confidence by listening to students, understanding their prior knowledge, and reinforcing the approach that they have been taught in school.

- are retired teachers and professional tutors, often with math and science degrees. We focus on helping coaches understand the key skills to great coaching - listening to the student, bringing in their prior knowledge, focusing on one key misconception, and making them feel successful.
