Gideon Math & Reading
4.7
Based on 253 reviews
We have been with Gideon since a year now, my daughter has extremely improved in her reading, struggling with phonic sounds to now reading her grade level books. That's huge! Besides, reading she improved her math skills as well - they don't move kids forward in lessons unless and until they completely learn things in and out and this has helped my daughter a lot. Highly recommend Gideon!

My son has shown great improvement in his grades and desire to learn. This program helps with dyslexia and allows the child to correct their own mistakes.

My son loves Gideon. One place that I don't have to drag him to :)Gideon has been great at building a foundation in English language for him. I think the grammar and vocab daily practice is amazing. It looks easy and doesn't make them sweat, but I think going over and over helps him in long term. I see improvement The team here in McKinney is great and very accommodating. Thanks all!

Absolutely the best learning center in Frisco. We have seen tremendous improvement in our daughter's confidence and test scores. She is doing above grade level math, thanks to strong foundation that Gideon helped build. Teacher give personalized attention and are always there to answer any questions. Highly recommend this Gideon center on Preston Road.

Management, Staff, and environment at Gideon Littlerock are friendly and encouraging. According to me understanding concept, concentration, practice, consistency is key for learning, we are noticing improvement in all aspects with our kid after he started Gideon and he is more confident now. Most importantly he is enjoying Gideon. I recommend this Gideon center to anyone without any doubt.

I cannot express how amazing Ms. Divya (the center owner) is. She is kind, understanding, patient, knowledgeable, and a very special person! My two girls are currently enrolled at her center for both math and reading and I have seen such an improvement in as little as 2 weeks and it just seems to continue. She really pays attention to the children and is able to identify my childrens downfalls even better than I can. I highly recommend Ms. Divya at this Gideon location in McKinney...you will NOT regret it!! TWO THUMBS UP!!

I wanted my daughter to practice a little more math to compliment her going to school to pulaski academy..I found gideon after school program..its twice a week half hour with a teacher and 5 pages a day a booklet they provide to practice at home..very reasonable,friendly ,outstanding service ..miss Sara the owner is amazing..she is great with the kids and helps in every way she can to improve my daughters skills.By far that was my best investment and now I am thinking of putting my daughter in english studying..by the way my daughter always comes out with a 95 in her class..and enjoys math and that was my goal

My son was struggling with writing, reading and comprehension. Everybody at Gideon was very understanding and helpful from the beginning, they created a good curriculum for him, after 6 months of going to Gideon he has improved tremendously. The staff cares about each student’s academic growth, I highly recommend them.

My daughter started here at this Gideon 8 weeks ago. This is the best place ever! She has really gained confidence in herself. And her teacher gave me a great feedback and told me today that she noticed the marked improvement and her willingness to learn. As a parent, I definitely this tutoring center to others. Fiona and her teachers work very hard to help my child make the progress. I really appreciate it! Very happy!

My daughter Kamila, started Gideon a few months ago, she was struggling with math and having a hard time at school. At first she was not very happy with the idea of math tutoring, but after only her first time at Gideon, she was super excited to attend. She has improved so much and we can already tell the difference. She used to not enjoy math at all, and now, even though it’s not her favorite, she looks forward to Gideon. I can not thank you enough for what you guys have done!! I highly recommend Gideon!!

My child has been enrolled at Gideon Frisco for past 18 months. I have seen great improvement with his reading and math skills. The ratios are low and teachers take their time to help each student. As parents, we receive feedback after each class and also regular conferences to monitor the progress.

Since two years my daughter was going to Gideon. At present she is in 5th grade. Trust me there is lot of improvement on my daughter progress card. The main reason is the management; how keen there were on each student. I sincerely appreciate Arati; the time she spends with the parents in explaining what they need. She explains the Student if needed by herself. I appreciate Vinita for all her coordination with student and parents for any missed classes. I am so so impressed the dedication they have.... . I guess Gideon is a systematic program that align with any ISD curriculum. Always my daughter loves to go to Gideon.

We enrolled our daughter shortly after school started this year. We recently received her second-9-week progress report and she has had a marked improvement in her math. I believe her concentration and confidence, particularly in her math ability, has greatly increased due to Gideon. I feel Fiona and her staff are top notch and would highly recommend this facility!

I am really happy that my son has joined this Gideon. He has improved so much and his confidence has increased. We moved here two years. Thank you, Ms Fiona, for helping us. I suggest not to ask for discount. When you see your child growing in confidence and succeeding, that makes the value of your money all worth it. I highly recommend this to my friends!

I am really with Fiona and her awesome teachers. Gideon in east Plano is run very smoothly and it’s environment is very conducive to a child’s learning. My son has been for 8 weeks. He was previously in Kumon for 6 months and got very frustrating with the lack of attention or interaction with the tutors there. His progress at Gideon has been dramatically improved. It is such a joy to see his confidence level raised up in such a short time. He looks forward to his classes at Gideon and loves his teachers here. At school, his teacher has noticed his progress and his new found confidence. I highly recommend the place and am spreading the word to my friends and family.

Our 8 year-old daughter has been going to the Gideon Central Frisco location at Preston and Stonebrook for the last 4 years. When Ms. Aarti opened her second location in McKinney which is closer to our home, we didn’t hesitate to move our daughter there immediately. The Gideon focus on core Math and reading fundamentals have really gone a long way in helping shape our daughter’s educational journey through school. Given our confidence in Ms. Aarti and her staff, we also enrolled our 5 year-old at the McKinney location this year. Within a few months, she has greatly improved on her reading and math skills as well. Ms. Aarti herself is a personable, available and engaged teacher and great at providing feedback and answering questions which is extremely helpful for us as parents. Both our kids are happy working and learning from her staff. I highly recommend Gideon for providing strong fundamentals and a well-balanced education to kids along with regular school.

So thankful we made the decision to put our daughter in 1x1 tutoring over the summer at Gideon. She had been a solid B student last year, but, lost her confidence. Fiona and her teachers were great to work with and really helped her develop independence and improved her skills. She started high school confident and has already been achieving all A’s on her math tests. This has been one the best decisions we made for our daughter and we will continue with the tutoring.

I highly recommend Gideon Math and Reading in North Mckinney to parents who wants to see their children’s reading and math skills strengthen to the next grade level. The staff is highly skilled, professional and always willing to make time to address questions.I’m so impress with the flexibility of the owner and the staff. Gideon’s staff scheduled and completed a meeting with my daughter’s school teacher (at the school) to review areas of concerns and ways to enhance other areas. My daughter’s reading skills quickly improved base on the detailed analysis from Gideon. The environment is great and my daughter looks forward for her tutoring sessions. The staff gives excellent support to encourage children that they have the skills to grow to the next level.Thank you Mrs. Arora.

My daughter struggled with math and reading as demonstrated by her grades, attitude and confidence level. After six months of attending Gideon, she caught up to her grade level in class and homework, improved her confidence and finished the year on the A-B Honor Roll! She truly enjoys learning the Gideon way!

I highly recommend this place!! My son started the reading program back in October after being diagnosed with dyslexia. I did not believe the school diagnostic and decided to look up for help here at Gideon. I noticed a change on my son education in just a week. Therefore, it was the best decision I could ever make for my son success. He has improved tremendously from DRA reading level 14 to 29 in just 7 months. According to some educators, this achievemen was not possible but he did it!!!! He also improved his writing skills and mastered other subjects as a second grader. Gideon has a very efficient and productive curriculum. Mrs. Wendy and her staff are super friendly and helpful. I will forever be grateful to Gideon because they revolutionary my son's education and self esteem!!! He was misdiagnosed but my son's hard work through Gideon help him proved the school wrong.Please, do not hesitate to enroll your kiddos here!!! It is the best investment for your kids future!!!!

My son joined Gideon (Plano location) almost 3 yrs back in 1st grade after trying Kumon for a year & half. Both educational institutions have their speciality in teaching methods but we found course material & teachers @ Gideon made all the difference in motivating our child in learning in much friendlier env. Needless to say Ms Fiona & Mr Andy (in charge & owner) and her staff have put their sincere effort in helping our child to build strong foundation and confidence in both subjects & to be ahead of the game. During enrollment, she took special care in evaluating child’s level & ability to put the child into right starting line. Periodically conducts parent’s meet to discuss child’s progress (also when requested). Received honest feedback in areas of improvement based on child’s strength & weakness. Thanks to Ms Fiona for sharing valuable tips, advice & experiences in general. Wishing Ms Fiona & Mr Andy very best in keeping up the same level of excellent education service for years to come.

Gideon has revolutionized my children's education. In just a short time I've seen a remarkable improvement in both math and read. Specifically, my 4 yr old son who struggled with letter recognition is now reading short words in just 2 short months. The Coppedge family really takes good care of our kids and I'd recommend to anyone!

My daughter has been enrolled here for several months now, twice a week. Her growth in math, reading, and writing have improved dramatically. Her daily school teachers have commented on her advancement during her last review. Her confidence in taking on new challenges or speaking in class has improved to the point she wants to be the one with the answer each time. We interviewed many of the local centers that provide similar services to Gideon such as Kumon, Reading Ranch, Explorer Horizons, and Grade Power. While the other companies varied in their approach and were acceptable on many levels, we chose this place because of the staff, the progressive can do attitude and structure provided. My daughter looks forward to going here every time, so I know we have made the right choice and her grades reflect that.

We have been going to Gideon close to a year now. My main reason for getting supplemental math and reading help for my 10 and 7 year old is that me and my husband are not very effective teachers or tutors and we know that. Gideon has helped keep study times at home peaceful because the kids are not struggling with math and reading concepts. Gideon follows a focused program that helps kids with the foundations for math and reading that they usually breeze through in school. Over the past months, both kids have improved in school and has boosted their confidence as a result. Ms. Arati, the owner makes an effort to tailor the program to the child. Her entire staff is wonderful with kids. My kids are quick to complain if they are not comfortable in a place but they are always happy to go to Gideon. If my 14 year-old was not already so busy, she would also be going here too just to keep on top of her math.

My daughter started at Gideon 6 mos ago and I am so happy with her overall progress. In her preschool, she really didn't learn much. But within 6 mos, she can read all the step 1 reading books, learnt how to form sentences, and her math skills have improved so much. She's doing really great in Kindergarten compared to all other students. I love the overall structure, curriculum, and material offered at Gideon. I specially like the Preston center run by Arti since she's always on the floor answering questions or any concerns that we have. Love all the staff too. My daughter is very comfortable working with them and the staff really encourages her. Thanks a Bunch!!

I would highly recomend gideon to parents who have kids that are difficult to teach and slow to catch up. Now my daughter is very much interested in learning. The teachers are so good in motivating their students. Not only they will learn from basics but kids will enjoy learning.

Fantastic experience at Gideon Coppell! My 13 year old attended Gideon Coppell for 6 years. My 9 year old is a current Gideon student and has attended Gideon Coppell for 3 years. Their grades have improved dramatically while attending Gideon. My 13 year old is now an all "A" student now, and my 9 year old now gets "excellent" for every subject. Both just received their STAAR results and scored above the cutoff for "level 3/advanced". Gideon Coppell is a family run business. Ms. Coppedge and her daughter have excellent teaching/education credentials. The high school students who work there are all great kids with a passion for teaching. I recommend Gideon Coppell for anyone whose child is struggling in school, or for anyone who wants to give their child a competitive advantage. Gideon Coppell has been a wonderful supplement for our children's education and worth every penny.

Gideon is an academic program designed to improve reading and/or mathematics. It is structured around daily activities in workbooks which are designed to challenge students with progressive difficulty. Daily work is intended to be supervised/coached by parents and students meet two times per week with instructors at the Gideon facility.I have three young children--ages 6, 5 and 5 (twin boys). All currently enrolled in both reading and math; we've been here for four months. My six year old just completed kindergarten in a public school and the twins just completed pre-k in a well-known private school. These schools are rated excellent. I've had my children in several other academic programs over the last three years similar to Gideon.With the background established, you might be wondering about the need for an extracurricular program for reading and math since my children are already in great schools. It's been my observation that public school has placed a lot of emphasis on socialization as opposed to academics. The private school we attend is focused on hands on work. Gideon offers pure academic focus which improves the students ability to perform work and perform work under to specific standards--mastery is assessed weekly and students move on or repeat.The results of this program have been excellent. Not only have my children improved their understanding of reading and math; I've also observed a increased confidence in their social interactions and interest in applying the math they learn.I feel like this program in closing the delta between what my children should be learning at this age and what they are receiving at school. Public school cirriculum seems very unorganized with random handouts with lesson plans all over the place. My daughter--public kindergarten--was learning elements of algebra along with basic arithmetic concepts. (??)There is a focus on results at Gideon, and I find the program much more focused on coaching a child to master basic operations than the other academic programs in which I've had my children. It is also very progressive and the curriculum is very strongly locked together.The owner of this location, Aarti Dewan, is great. She has a background in both public and private education, so she knows what is being taught in schools and what is not. She is always busy running the center, but she will always take time to say hi and always seems to be in a great mood. When time permits (about once a week), she will also spends a few extra minutes discussing my children's progress--focal areas, the kid's personalities and so on. She is immediately very likable and naturally very funny but also focused and intense. It was her personality more than anything that convinced me to sign up and I am quite happy with my decision.The rest of the staff at Gideon Central Frisco are very nice and polite. I think Gideon trains children all the way into high school, so it's not a preK-elementary program only. I've found the older students here very polite.Great job!

I highly recommend this tutoring location of your child is struggling in school, or simply to have your child get ahead! Great teachers with a great atmosphere for learning. You can also count on lots of laughs and cool contests for the children to become more excited for Gideon! The two kids I take here have such great improvements it's hard not to tell everyone about Gideon! 🙂

I used to attend Kumon, and I previously worked at another tutoring center; however, in comparison to the tow, Gideon has proved to be different than the other two centers. While Kumon and other tutoring centers attempt to teach students the material they are learning in school, which is beneficial short term, Gideon is providing its students a fundamental foundation in math and reading that will help them both in the short and long term in school. By working at Gideon, I have seen many improvements in many of the students. Initially, as most students are, they will struggle and move slowly, I know I did when I had trouble in school, but as Gideon builds upon their mastery in a topic, the work gets done quickly and is thoroughly done with detail and the students actually understand what they are learning. If any parent wants their student to catch up in school, or get ahead, Gideon is a wonderful place to take them because the students actually enjoy their time there as well. The students have the chance to work all the instructors, which exposes them to the fact that every teacher has a different method, but it truly depends on the student how they decide how to utilize the information the instructor provides them.

My son has been going to Gideon for the past 3 months and there is already a noticeable improvement in his mental math abilities which his teacher as well as the parents of other kids in his class have commented on while playing math related games. Gideon ensures that kids get regular practice during the week which gives them the confidence to solve problems.
