Meet Zoya Koza. Zoya is director and founder of the program. As a retired, former NYC Math Teacher, the one thing she notices most about new students, whether they come from public, private, or home-school programs, or have attended popular after-school Math programs such as Kumon or Mathnasium is that they are not prepared for abstract mathematical thinking.
The curriculum Zoya has developed for ICA fundamentally allows children to become better academic math language readers and teaches them how to think mathematically about everyday life events. The curriculum incorporates educational tools and techniques (the Singapore Math System, the Beast Academy Curriculum and the Art of Problem Solving) and consistently yields impressive results. Most students that have gone through the program score at the highest proficiency levels in math, and the program has helped a large number of students to achieve the top scores in Math Olympiad competitions and national and international competitions,
