From Our Parents & Students...

My parents took me to ms. Sakabayashi when I was 5 and it has definitely helped my mathematical abilities as I am able to compute equations and problems quickly due to my practice when I was young.  going to her class definitely made me a stronger math student for sure.  I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to become stronger math student besides having fast math calculating skills. -- Gen Kimura (Santa Clara University)
