Founder J.R. Rivera a seasoned successful 8 year highly qualified math teacher saw that he was reaching students other educators couldn’t lesson plan or dream to reach.
Using his sports, African American culture, sense of passion and inspiration year after year he was noticing students would do really well in his class and move backwards many times in their classroom success down the line with other instructors.
