“I work from home and enjoy running my Cuemath business!”
Mrs. Purvi Shirodariya used to work from home teaching students for many years before finding Cuemath. She was a beloved tuition teacher and was responsible for the exam scores of many children. However, after teaching for many years, she needed a break.
“I was fed up with tuition classes. There’s so much stress. We have to explain concepts, take care of homework, complete the syllabus and it was very monotonous for me.”
Purvi’s daughter heard about Cuemath one day at her workplace and told her mother about it. Having taught Abacus and Vedic math already, Purvi decided to sign up with Cuemath and become a teacher after going through the website. She recounts that the direction of the program interested her and she wanted to do something different from what she was already doing.
“I wanted to do something where the children can be benefited more and not just by heart concepts. Cuemath is creative and the children have something new to do everyday!”
Purvi explains that after becoming a Cuemath teacher, she herself found the program very interesting because it started right from the basics for children.
Being an experienced teacher, who designed her own curriculum for her students earlier, she was extremely pleased with the way the Cuemath program engaged the children from the beginning.
“The technology is fun to use and even my familiarity with technology is increasing day by day.”
When probed about her students performances using Cuemath, Purvi exclaimed that they all love the program and eagerly wait for their scheduled classes.
She gave us an example of a student who studied in the SSC board. The SSC board is slightly easier when compared to the central board. Initially this student found Cuemath a little above her level and difficult. However, the great motivator that she has always been, Purvi encouraged her to continue with Cuemath to learn the concepts.
“This child who used to get 30 to 35 marks in her exams, managed to obtain a wonderful 49/50 after her exercises with Cuemath! And she lost that one mark because she did an extra step!” said the proud teacher, laughing.
Another child who hated math and couldn’t understand questions in the exam, now has the highest marks in Math when compared to his other subjects. Purvi explains that this is because he learnt how to read and co-relate questions with concepts on his own.
“The best thing about Cuemath is that, the questions or puzzles bring about a thinking process in the children. Not just them, even the parents. The fact that it’s making people think itself is a big achievement right?”
Furthermore she explains that the design of the program is one of a kind and she has noticed that the children want to read and understand the different questions on their own.
Purvi mentioned that she always gets calls from women who are also interested in becoming Cuemath teachers. She always tells them 5 things,
- The concept is simply amazing, you get excellent results.
- The affiliation is very affordable.
- No unnecessary payment for infrastructure
- Excellent support from Team Cuemath.
- You can work from home! That’s the best part
“I’ve had fulfilling experiences because the Cuemath team’s support is fantastic” she said. “If we put our heart into the work, the returns are quite high and satisfactory.”
What does she do when parents seem doubtful about Cuemath?
“So far, no parent was doubtful. They loved the program from the start. In fact, one couple sends both their children to me and they aren’t very well off. But seeing their childrens’ interest and their performances, even they are motivated to work harder and earn well for them”
Purvi therefore believes that it’s not just the kids, but the entire family that collectively learns through Cuemath. She has devised a strategy wherein she sends a puzzle every morning to her Cuemath parents’ whatsapp group and gets collective answers by night.
“It’s nice when the parents actually spend time with the children to solve these puzzles. It means that they also see the difference on how Cuemath has made their kids love math.”
Purvi signs off saying that being a Cuemath teacher is so much more fulfilling than being just another tuition teacher!
