"We received a copy of this course and my son really enjoyed it, I had to stop him from trying to do it all in one day! It was awesome to learn about historic mathematicians and techniques. My son found some of it challenging, but did not give up, and there were some things that were explained to him in a different way than I had before that really helped him. We recommend this course."

"My daughter took this course and loved it! Perfect mix of math and history. She loved all the informational lessons mixed with the math."

"My 12 year old daughter had the privilege of taken this course and I was more than impressed with the content. To have not only the technical side of our culture but the historical side mixed in. Well organized. Can’t wait to see what comes next."

My name is Brandon Berry and I am of African ascent (I say ascent because we are rising,
not falling). As an Academic Coach, I have experienced the insecurities
of children of African ascent in the United States who don't have a
sense of who they are or what they are capable of. I have made it my
mission to let them know that they are capable of much more than they
have been led to believe by the media and outside influences, with much
I have mainly coached children of African ascent. Not one of them have shown me that they were not capable of learning everything they wanted to learn. The one thing that ALWAYS stopped any of the children I coached from succeeding was the BELIEF that they could succeed.
A wise man once said, "A people without the knowledge of their history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots." After coaching so many students, I came to the realization that many children of African ascent were like trees without roots. This is especially true when I comes to math.
Well, no more.
I created Motherland Math to be a curriculum that caters to children of
African ascent, so that they can feel rooted in the material they are
learning. In Motherland Math, there are math concepts for grade levels
4 - 12, that are taught from an African perspective. Currently, only the first level for 4th - 7th grade is available. Levels 2 - 5 are still in production.

"I was referred by a friend to Brandon to tutor my daughter in math when she was a senior in high school. For more than 10 years, she’s struggled tremendously with Math and its been my opinion that although she has great teachers, she needed someone that could spend time with her one on one to help her to comprehend what she’s working on. After trying several tutors, Brandon came through like a winning lottery ticket! His approach to teaching is unique in that he helped my daughter to improve tremendously by helping her learn the “language” of math. He was more concerned about her ability to test and work on her own than he was about just completing homework. He’s truly one of the best in the business!"
