jams-classroomOur Mission:

JAMS specialize in providing Abacus & Anzan instruction, our goal is to build a solid and strong foundation of Mental Mathematics with lifelong skills. Where Success Adds UP!

Our Vision:

JAMS is committed and dedicated to become the leading provider of brain development and power for all students: Abacus is not just power in it-self but supports number sense (place value, and algebraic operations) concentration, patience, memory and judgment which in return increases brain development and power.

Our Philosophy:

JAMS believe that every child is Intelligent and Gifted. The only difference is in the learning curve and performance: This is because of the skills and tools a child has, or doesn’t have. Give your child the skills and the best tools available – Learning Mathematics through Abacus and Anzan. This is the best gift that you can pass on to your next generation.

From Our Parents & Students...

I am deeply grateful for the time we have spent with JAMS and to Sensei Miwako for the impact she has had on my children. She has aided in the molding of each one, something that could not have happened without her. -- Kelly & Erin Wheeldon
