RSM Enters New York Market

Thursday, September 11, 2014 - 13:38

NEW YORK, Sept 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Russian School of Mathematics (RSM), the award-winning after-school math program renowned for developing excellence in mathematics and lifelong critical thinking skills, marks its entry into the New York market with the opening of two math schools - in Brooklyn and Port Washington. The move comes in response to growing demand for advanced after-school math education from families of K-12 children in these communities.

Both New York math schools will be run by Branch Director Victoria Gartstein, a veteran math teacher and Long Island native who brings to her role nearly a decade of teaching experience.

Please visit an Open House to learn more about RSM's program and to receive a free math evaluation. Brooklyn's Open House will be held on Sept. 14th from 3 - 5 pm, Port Washington's on Sept. 21st from 3 - 5 pm.

Fall classes are now enrolling at both branches. The Brooklyn math school will hold classes at Elite Academy of Science & Technology (EAST) 2115 Benson Ave. in Brooklyn. The Port Washington math school will hold classes at the Vincent Smith School 322 Port Washington Blvd.

Inessa Rifkin and Irina Khavinson, the two Russian immigrant women who started the Massachusetts-based Russian School of Mathematics in 1997, believe that anyone can do well in math given the right learning environment. For more than a decade, RSM students have consistently posted top scores in national and international math competitions and on standardized tests. But as the founders point out, achieving top test scores is just one of the benefits of RSM's math enrichment program. RSM students also see higher grade point averages in school, more confidence, and a strengthening of problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

The key, they say, is creating an enjoyable learning environment that emphasizes understanding over rote memorization and having a systematic curriculum and well-trained, enthusiastic teachers who can pass their love of math on to their students.

Once based in the Rifkin family living room, the school's aim has always been to help students get into the best colleges by giving them a set of skills they would find valuable in any profession. RSM has seen demand for its math program increase dramatically over the years and the math school today enrolls more than 12,000 students at its 23 locations in eight states.

By Tina Forbes, Nashua Telegraph

Science, technology, engineering and math skills continue to be coveted qualities for potential employees, particularly in New Hampshire. With that in mind, Nashua is set to welcome a new after-school charter program this September. The program has the sole purpose of fine-tuning students’ advanced math skills.

The Russian School of Mathematics plans to open its After-School Math Program at 84 Lake Street on Sept. 4. The program teaches advanced math for kindergarten through 12th-grade students. The Nashua location for the Russian School of Mathematics will be the first branch in the state.

Winchester Offers Two Exciting New Summer Courses!

Friday, June 27, 2014 - 11:23

RSM-Winchester is providing two new summer courses for students interested in trying something new:

The Course of Music Appreciation

This course is an exciting program that combines fundamental principles of the elements of music, solfege, ear training, music theory and music history. This class will incorporate the basics of music notation and sight-reading as well as history and classification of music instruments as members of different types of the orchestra. We will compare and explore different styles of music as well as build an appreciation for variety.

This course will be taught by Sergey Khanukaev, an accomplished maestro and professor with over thirty years of experience in Russia, Israel, and the United States.

The Music Appreciation course is designed for students entering grades 3–8. The class will meet once a week on Tuesdays 4–5 PM, the cost for 6 weeks is $150. (Playing on a musical instrument is not required.)

Public Speaking Course

A program that will help our kids express themselves, eliminate fears of speaking in front of others, strengthen their self-confidence and develop their leadership skills.

Public Speaking for Youth was founded by Roberta Chadis, a former VP of the Advanced Access Toastmasters Club, in 2012 with the mission to help children develop speaking and leadership skills which will give them an advantage as they grow in all areas of their lives. Partnering with RSM, Roberta has created a program that will integrate speaking skills with mathematics to help students express themselves more clearly and feel comfortable talking in front of a group.

Public speaking class will meet once a week on Thursday 5–6 PM, the cost for 6 weeks is $150.
