Cuemath was born with a vision to help students learn math the right way and overcome the difficulties they face due to traditional blackboard learning.
Cuemath provides after-school maths tuition classes. It uses physical worksheets, quiz cards with other tablet-based in-house content. It essentially targets students from lower kindergarten to standard 10.
It operates on a micro-franchisee model, where local tutors sign up with the company to conduct classes at their home. Cuemath is a technology-driven content platform which combines adaptive and gamified learning with a curriculum that focuses on first-principles learning.
