Math had always been and remains a critical subject students need to grasp, as we counter it in our everyday lives.
“When I was young, I was particularly gifted with math,” recalled Tadros as he looked back at his time at school. “I never shied away from a test or a competition to the point where I ended up on the cover of our local newspaper.”
Driven by his love for numbers and cracking complex equations, Tadros became a math teacher. As he transitioned from student to instructor, he soon realized how much students struggled to grasp the material.
To encourage his students to appreciate the subject and learn in a fun manner, he decided to develop an interactive mobile application.
Gaming as a Competitive Advantage
This generation is enthralled by technology. As kids engage in gaming and surfing the web, Tadros decided to leverage on that when developing Math Achievers.
“Through the use of fun and intellectual gaming challenges, the aim of the app is to help children between the age of 5 and 12 to develop their math skills,” the entrepreneur explained.
The application works on increasing their focus, retaining their memory, and enabling them to solve problems faster.
Through the application, children will have the opportunity to practice and challenge their friends for a chance to win rewards, and because many children love to compete against one another, this serves as an extra push towards practicing mental mathematics.
“The games are as interactive as they are fun,” explained Tadros. “They stimulate children’s minds and keep them entertained. This was most proven during the pandemic when several of our users used the app to kill time and learn all at once while they were stuck at home.”
The Tank as a Lighthouse
According to Tadros, The Tank by Umniah served as a lighthouse that guided the startup safely towards the shore. Through their networking opportunities, consultations, meetings and several other activities, they provided Math Achievers with not only guidance but a set of skills that is pivotal when it comes to entrepreneurship.
On a final note, Yazan Tadros wished to send a message to all aspiring entrepreneurs looking to kickstart their entrepreneurial journey. “The road will start off as impossible to cross before you realize it’s filled with many hindrances. But as long as you know where your next step lies, there’s nothing to be afraid of.”
