Introducing: Bridges of Hope For All.
When schools closed their doors due to COVID, thousands of kids were cut off from school and learning opportunities. The data is in, and COVID has indeed caused devastating learning losses.

"I really like this one-on-one tutoring. It gives us an opportunity to really focus on each child, and tailor make each child's learning experience. You sit down and you learn what they already know and where their weaknesses are. And then, using the curriculum that is provided by Path2Math, we will then identify the next two or three areas for trying to fill in the gaps where, perhaps, they might be falling back a little bit compared to th...Paul Rathkamp, Path2Math tutor
