"I always did really well in math, and didn't know what to do with the skill until I got involved with the Indianapolis Algebra Project. It was rewarding to be able to utilize a skill to help others. It wasn't until working with the Indianapolis Algebra Project that math AND education became a passion of mine. Once I went to college, it didn't take long before my major officially became Math Education. I have learned a lot through my education at the university level, but the values and vision of the Indianapolis Algebra Project will forever fuel my approach as an educator. IAP teaches me the true meaning of being student-centered."

“I first became acquainted with the Indianapolis Algebra Project through the Summer Youth Program Fund (SYPF) of Central Indiana. Scores of youth in the Indianapolis area have benefited from what the Indianapolis Algebra Project uniquely offers, thus increasing their confidence and proficiency in math. The organization is key to promoting academic success among many at-risk populations. Responding to the vast need of so many deserving students lacking the financial resources to attend college, the organization has seen fit to create a scholarship fund. Please join me in supporting this very important work in our community.”
PARENTS FROM EAST ALLEN COUNTY SCHOOLS
Ma Pae (Parent- K, 2nd, 4th,8th grade students)
As a parent, I really liked IAP. I have seen a change in all of my children’s grades as well as an increased interest in their schoolwork. IAP is a great program because I am not able to teach my kids mathematic skills. The tutor would engage my kids by using different teaching methods as well as providing the native language. This program benefits kids that are not meeting their full potential. My kids signed up with IAP for every school year.
Gold Sam (Parent-8th grade student)
As a parent, I was very happy with IAP because my son learned a lot. IAP has the bilingual tutors. The tutor was excellent and we were seeing a lot of progress in the time that she has been with my son. The tutor was very knowledgeable in the tutoring of the subject. My son has shown great improvement in his class, as well as in his test scores. Thanks to IAP for great performance.
Mee Baw (Parent-7th Grade student)
I was very pleased with IAP for my son. I have seen improvement after tutoring. IAP is a great program with experienced staff. I was always informed with progress reports monthly. I will choose IAP once again and recommend to the others.

Credibility is the lifeblood of an organization, and Indianapolis Algebra Project earned that credibility with me. They were so professional in every fashion of their day to day operations. I knew from the very beginning, of a three 3 year partnership, that they were true team players and would rise to any occasion, big or small, to make the situation better. They were very flexible with their tutoring hours which really accommodated parents’ busy schedule and differentiated their instruction to meet the needs of each student’s individual academic needs. I would not hesitate for one minute to recommend Indianapolis Algebra Project to anyone. Thank you IAP!!
