Back by popular demand this summer, Anthony Gillespey the founder of MathNinja.Org and coach of the State 5A TMSCA Number Sense, Calculator, and General Math Champions will be hosting weekly online summer classes for all 3 TMSCA Math Events and Basics of MATHCOUNTS.   The classes sizes will be kept small so make sure you sign up early.   For any students or coaches who sign up by May 14th, the cost will be $100 dollars after May 14th the cost will be $125.00.  I typically charge $60.00 an hour for tutoring so this is a great bargain.  All classes will be via the internet.  All that is required is a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access and microphone.  All classes will be recorded and sent to the class members.

Here are some comments from those that took the class last summer

-I am a relatively new coach to a TMSCA team for Number Sense, General Math, and Calculator. Taking the Number Sense classes 1 and 2 and General Math was a great experience! Anthony did a great job of clearly explaining, breaking down how concepts were related and gave really smart ways to apply math based reasoning to some interesting and complex math problems. These classes have helped my confidence in tackling math problems that I, quite frankly, don’t really remember anymore! Having the videos available to refer back to during the year will be a great resource for me as well. I think these courses were a great investment for me as a coach and I would highly recommend the classes to others!

-This was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you so much for all of the information you shared. I can’t wait to get back to my team and share with them the different strategies I learned from your course.

-Classes were great I learned many new things and tricks that will help me get better and faster. THANK YOU!

    If you enroll in 2 or more classes there is a $25.00 discount per class after the first (once I verify you are in multiple classes I will refund the difference.)

    I did not find your contact phone number to talk for clarification.

    1. anthony gillespey

      Send me an email to mathninjavideos@gmail.com
      I’ll send you my cell number. I’ll be happy to answer your questions.

      1. David Bai

        yeah me too on the cart the discount was not included so i don’t really get it, if i pay 500 for five classes then how will i get 125 back?

        1. anthony gillespey

          Unfortunately I don’t have a way to give you a discount at checkout without radically changing my website. I can give you a refund for the extra classes after you pay or I can send you a bill for 400.00. The first class is at full price every class after that is 75.00. For a total of 400.00. Just let me know what you want to do.

          1. David Bai

            Okay I’ll think about it I think I’ll choose the bill Thanks

          2. anthony gillespey

            Sent you an email with bill.

          3. David Bai

            Thanks I will pay within this week and for the textbook too, I heard you are writing a new one, when will that be available?

          4. David Bai

            I’m confused, why is billing address necessary for the lessons?

          5. anthony gillespey

            I actually added that because I realized that many people were purchasing the book with the class but I didn’t have the billing information to send the book.

          6. David Bai

            nevermind I have paid for the lessons, how will they work, do I have to wait on this website 9 oclock and something will pop up?

          7. anthony gillespey

            I will be sending you an invitation to a webcast. We will be using the app GotoMeeting.com I’ll send more information in the coming weeks. Each class will have a login invitation. We will be testing it all before we start.

          8. David Bai

            I ordered the book on friday, when will i get it?

  2. Cheng Tan

    Will HP 33s work with Calculator Application?

  3. Cheng Tan

  4. anthony gillespey

  7. rajiv totlani

    Do you have a july schedule?

    1. anthony gillespey

      Unfortunately, my family and I will be on vacation during that month so no. I do offer the classes as a video series. I taped each lesson from the previous week’s training. They are a little bit raw because I haven’t edited them but they are exactly what I taught the students in the class.

      1. john

        I can not do anything in June but am interested in looking at number sense level 2 how do I get the video series also what is the cost

        1. anthony gillespey

          I am no longer doing the classes till next summer. You can purchase the videos that I used in the class. Send me an email to mathninjavideos@gmail.com if you want more information.
