Abacus Math – Making Your Child an Excelling Intellect in a Competitive World
Abacus math is the ability to do mathematical calculations exclusively in one’s mind. With this ability, your child is able to do day-to-day computations in their head without ever needing a pencil, paper, calculator or any other form of help. Using various arithmetic techniques and practicing them in the mental space, your child is able to perform calculations within seconds that even adults would need much more time for.
However, developing these skills in a child requires serious efforts. At Tinker Thinkers, we train children to do such calculations using visual learning. We do this by using an ingenious invention called a Soroban.
A Soroban is quite similar to an abacus, but due to its effectiveness in learning arithmetic operations, it remains more relevant in today’s world than an abacus. It is a Japanese invention and has been around for ages. It’s used in some of the most developed countries of the world to help children learn basic arithmetic and practice mental math.
At Tinker Thinkers, we have combined this old masterpiece of math learning with modern technology to develop a system that helps your child learn abacus math at a fast pace and in a fun environment. While the children play games and have fun they are really learning to add, subtract, multiply, divide etc.
Children don’t find this type of learning boring because they are not asked to use pencils and notebooks instead they learn what some of them have called “cool math”. In most cases, these children can complete calculations before you even take out your calculator or write out the problem on a piece of paper. The mathematical techniques that allow them to calculate so quickly are stored in their brain just like their first language.
With practice and time, your children become so good at mental math that they can calculate the total cost of your groceries at a supermarket or your dinner bill at a restaurant before automatic machines produce a paper receipt.
Meet These Little Genius Mind That Have Made Us and Their Parents Proud
Meet Anya. She is 11 and she plans to be a Dermatologist.
My dream job is to be a Dermatologist. I think it is very cool and I want to help people with their skin, so I picked a Dermatologist and mental math can help me in so many ways.
I will concentrate on what my patients will be saying so I can give them the right medications.
A good memory can help me because my patients will be telling me what hurts and what medications they already used, and what other doctors had given them so I would have to memorize all the creams, the pills, and what hurts to give them the right medications the help the patient.
Observation will help me to effectively exam my patients and it will be very helpful at the school like in science so I can observe during experiments.
All Dermatologists should be able to process information quickly if there is an emergency I will need to act fast and help people as soon as possible.
Abacus math helps me to improve my brain abilities which will make it easier for me to study in school and to become and good and successful Dermatologist.
Meet Victoria. She is 11 and she wants to be a teacher!
When I grow up I want to become a teacher in a Christian school. I think that Tinker Thinkers Academy can help me a lot in life and in becoming a good teacher. I am glad to have this opportunity to learn this technique of math because it will help me to memorize what kind of lesson I would need to teach, and figure out all math problems quickly instead of writing it down on paper and taking my time. I have noticed changes in my calculation. Before I started to study Abacus Math at Tinker Thinkers I used to count on my fingers but now I can do it in my mind. These classes have been a good use of time and I am thankful for the teachers that teach me and encourage me. I know that when I grow up this will come in handy.
This is Dasha. She wants to be a horse trainer!
When I grow up I want to be a horse trainer. Abacus Math can help me to improve my memory and I would be able to easily remember all horses and their owners. Also, Abacus Math helps me to be very concentrated and to pay attention to little details which are very important in horse training routines. At Tinker Thinkers Learning Center I become calmer. I listen to what my teachers say and I started studying more with interest.
Do You Often Notice Your Child Struggling with These Issues?
- Are your child’s grades always below average or quickly dropping?
- Does your child have a hard time following along and keeping up with their lesson in class?
- Does your child have difficulty listening and end up almost immediately forgetting what you told them?
- Is it frustratingly difficult for your child to memorize text or numbers by heart?
- Do you notice your child making up excuses for bad performance in mathematics?
- Does your child struggle with simple logical problems?
- Do you find that your child does not actively take part in creative activities?
- So they have trouble concentrating?
How Abacus Math Empowers a Child’s Education, Profession and Day to Day Handling of Life
Here are the abilities that a child develops while learning mental math, and a description of how these abilities shape up his/her intellect to be relevant and successful in the modern world.
Increased Concentration Power
Concentration improves your children’s in-class performance, and helps them in becoming professional surgeons, air traffic controllers, technical illustrators, chemists, architects etc.
Stronger Visualization and Imagination
This invaluable skill helps children throughout their lives. Children with great visualization make up for incredible graphic designers, landscape artists, CNC programmers, interior designers etc.
Memory helps your child in day to day activities, academic education and professional life. Good memory can help children become great professors, environmental engineers, agricultural science teachers, environmental economists etc.
Not only does observation help your children with a great career but also it helps stay safe from possible dangers around them. Children with good observation can be great QA analysts, intelligence officers, speakers etc. Great observation skills also make up for great business leaders.
Fast Information Processing
There is no field, industry or profession that does not highly value a person with fast information processing skills. The biggest gift that comes with fast information processing is the power of making accurate and timely decisions.
A child whose listening skills are great learns things much faster than his/her classmates. Good listening means the child will understand things fast and probably at first attempt. Listening skills make for great entrepreneurs, judges, family therapists, psychologists etc.
Now is the time to take an action!
Give your child the confidence they deserve. Today!

Reviews of students and parents
I found out about Tinker Thinkers Academy as soon as it opened. But, as a single mother, for several years I could not afford to give my child such an education. Then, Dennis, (the founder of the academy), made me an offer that I could not resist. For me, it was like winning the lottery!!!
Before we started classes at Tinker Thinkers Academy, my daughter had problems with math and other subjects in school. You cannot imagine how happy I was, and cried from joy, when my daughter brought home an award for being the most improved in mathematical abilities. To me, it was the best confirmation that abacus math really works. My daughter really likes the fun and interesting activities and useful masterclasses at the Academy.
Like any mom, I want a happy and successful future for my child. And at this stage, when he is still small, our job, as parents, is to invest into him as many useful skills and knowledge as possible. Before we started at Tinker Thinkers Academy, Artem always needed help in completing his homework from school. He was easily distracted by things; it was hard for him to concentrate on one thing. After 6 months of education at the Academy, my child comes to me himself, to show me his completed homework. Now I do not have to remind him or force him to do his homework. My son’s memory has also noticeably improved; he memorizes poems after reading them once! His ability to sit still and concentrate his attention has also significantly improved. Now, he can sit and work without breaks for 30-40 minutes without any problems, and he does this with no particular difficulty. Of course, I really like that my child is busy with useful activities everyday, instead of sitting in front of the television or playing video games.
Artem also likes practicing abacus math. At Tinker Thinkers Academy he has made new friends, and he happily attends classes.
