A New Program Allows Math Teachers to Help Their Students More Individually
Math teachers get frustrated. They want to help their students individually but understand that there is honestly not enough time to do that. In order to help a teacher help a student, Alexei Beltyukov came up with an idea. An idea he calls SOLVY.
What SOLVY does is gives a place that teachers can go and post homework assignments based on their interests and needs. The student does the homework and if they need extra attention, SOLVY informs the teacher.
It is currently available for Algebra One classes. Alexei Beltyukov stated his goal for the company as, “We want to make it easier for teachers to understand and manage their students’ progress and offer them developmental feedback when outside of the classroom” (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/alexei-beltyukov-to-launch-solvy-at-edsurge-conference-in-los-angeles-300071786.html).
Alexei Beltyukov is a Russian entrepreneur and philanthropist who believe in the need for education. He started out life as a doctor but with the recession he was unable to make ends meet, living in a run-down apartment with his wife and the cockroaches.
They took a chance and before he knew it, he had graduated from ISEAD, a business school with campuses throughout Europe. His multiple successes since graduating has allowed him to help students who are enrolling to ISEAD University in Russia. They can apply for a Russian Alumni scholarship that he helped create.
Sometimes the education goes beyond school. For this, he gives guidance through the Skolkovo Foundations, where he is the Vice President of the organization, a company that provides help for start-ups and entrepreneurs looking to expand throughout Russia. He is able to use is life experiences as the founder of several companies, including A-Ventures, Mecanicus, Endemic Capital, and of course, SOLVY. According to Angel.co, Alexei Beltyukov sees a need and he fills it. When it comes to education, sometimes that need is just to help the students succeed. Thanks to Alexei Beltyukov and SOLVY, we can now do that.
