Introduction

Cuemath is a Bangalore based startup started in 2013 that aims to provide an after-school math enrichment program to revolutionize the way math is experienced by both teachers and students all across the world. 

Based on gamified and adaptive learning, Cuemath partners with qualified tutors who facilitate the pre-designed curriculum. 

Using a multi-mode format (worksheets, tabs along with physical models), Cuemath has adopted a “learning-by-doing” methodology to tackle math learning at three levels – 
(a) School math – fundamental curricular learning 
(b) Mental aptitude – building the child’s mental swiftness in calculation and non-calculation skills 
(c) Creative reasoning – the ability to solve open-ended/unseen problems.

Cuemath’s standardized methodology and certified tutors ensure extensive coverage of maths, aptitude, and creative reasoning.
 

Coming to the discussion of Cuemath tutors and teaching partners, we have Aswini Wani, who would like to discuss this whole process of becoming a Cuemath tutor and the impact it has had in her life. 

Aswini Wani, an engineer by profession and an IT employee for six years, decided to take a break from her career for her son. She has since then restarted her career as an academic teacher with Cuemath.

The main reason she states for the same is to ensure a healthy work-life balance. 


How she came across Cuemath?

Aswini came across Cuemath while searching for a good programme in Mathematics for her son. She always had a belief that having a strong mathematical foundation is a must-have skill for every student. 
So when her son was facing issues in Mathematics, she searched for the Cuemath programme and was instantly convinced to enroll her son for the same. 

It was later while doing some more research in Cuemath that Aswini came to know about the Cuemath-Tutor Partnership wherein even she could become a teacher at Cuemath. It surely proved to be something she had been looking for mainly because of Cuemath’s value proposition of working from home for just a few hours a day. This could definitely ensure a smooth work-life balance along with restarting her career. As a parent, Aswini was sure about enrolling her son for the same but had second thoughts about joining Cuemath as a teacher for her career. She after realizing she had nothing to lose decided to give it a shot.


Cuemath Training

Cuemath training programme was the one responsible for freeing Aswini of all her doubts regarding this.

Her confidence increased day by day after starting to interact with the team members at Cuemath.

In fact, by the time Aswini was done with the training, she absolutely had no regrets regarding this and was extremely happy with her decision of joining Cuemath as an academic teacher.

She also proudly shared the news of becoming a certified Cuemath teacher with all of her friends and family. She happily quoted;

"I'm a certified Cuemath Teacher"
 

Cuemath Teaching Experience

After the training, when Aswini started out as a Cuemath Teacher her first student to enrol was, in fact, her own son.

Soon after, one of her close friend’s daughters also joined her class. So she started her class with just 2 students but still believed that it went better than what she had planned for.

The fact that Aswini had enrolled her own son and was doing the programme for him gave a sense of trust among all the other parents who were having doubts regarding this programme.

Because of this, she ended up with 5 enrollments by the end of the month and that is how Aswini began her amazing journey with Cuemath.

All this proved to be an excellent confidence booster for Aswini who then decided to host a community event of Cuemath quiz with the support and help from the Cuemath team.

She addressed over 100 people and gained a lot of exposure from the same. This event made people in her community start recognizing her as a Cuemath teacher and hence enrollments started rising for her.

Overall, this was a very satisfying experience for Aswini and hopefully for many other Cuemath Teachers across the country as well. 


Cuemath Team and Support

At each and every step of the journey, Aswini feels grateful to have the Cuemath Team to support her.

 
important notes to remember
 
"At Cuemath, I feel a sense of belonging in a community among other fellow Cuemath Teachers"
 

They were always there to extend their help and support through any issue or problems. She in fact also considers them as a family since then.  Aswini considers these 8 months of her journey with Cuemath simply phenomenal.


Summary

The advice that Aswini would like to part to fellow women who are thinking of restarting their career or want to enter the Academic teaching field is that if you like kids and also love maths, then Cuemath Teaching Programme is for you. 

Even if you have doubts regarding this, just give it a try and opt for it, you will see the difference yourself. 

A highly-scalable and capital efficient model, Cuemath has since 2013 empowered over 1,200 teachers across six cities who have been successfully running home-based learning centres as a Cuemath Teacher.

At least 70% of the Cuemath teachers break-even within 90 days and more than 25K women have shown interest in the program.

Cuemath is creating a significant impact at two levels – on one hand, it is making quality and personalised after-school math learning accessible and affordable for the masses and on the other, it is also empowering educated tutors to become financially independent.
