Problem solving is the mark of an independent employee.

Employers look for proactive people, who can detect a problem and come up with a solution, instead of waiting to be told what to do.

A large number of companies currently make use  of  employment  aptitude  tests,  which assess qualities such as problem solving, critical thinking, and attention to detail. All of these rely deeply on mathematical reasoning.

However, the need to improve the problem solving and reasoning skills goes beyond passing a test to get a job. In fact, the ability to solve problems is an essential part of any employee’s skill set, even if it isn’t specified on the job description.

To solve a problem and make sound decisions at the workplace and in life in general, one needs both general strategic knowledge and specialized domain knowledge. At our workshops, we will focus on the general strategic problem-solving math related abilities. You will practice with exercises similar to those  in aptitude tests (including SAT). In this way, you will strengthen your problem solving and mathematical and logical reasoning skills, and will be better prepared to tackle problems at the workplace and in life.

These workshops are addressed to adults ages 18 and above.
