·3 min read

One of only 30 EdTech companies in the world to be an official partner

BENGALURU, India, June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cuemath, a STEM.org accredited after-school, one-on-one math and coding program aimed at nurturing love and intuitive understanding of mathematics and coding for students in grades K-12, announces its partnership with Google for Education, to help transform teaching and learning experiences through Cuemath's platform.

Cuemath is one of only 30 EdTech companies in the world to sign a strategic partnership of this kind with Google for Education, and the first EdTech company in India to partner with Google's certification program for students and teachers.

Through the partnership Cuemath's students and teachers will be awarded Google for Education certification. Students who take a six or nine month Cuemath program will be awarded the Google CS First Creator Coder Certification, while their teachers will be given a Google Certified Educator Level 1 Certificate.

1000 of Cuemath's students have already been certified through the partnership with Google for Education, with >5000 students and >100 teachers expected to be certified by the end of 2021.

Cuemath's e-learning platform offers students live online classes – either one on one, or in small groups – for math and coding. Prices start as low as $15 per class, with flexible pricing plans available to make learning affordable.

Cuemath's app has received global recognition for its learning outcomes and is a proud recipient of STEM.org's Accredited Educational Experience Trustmark. In 2019, Grant Thornton - one of the largest US accountancy firms - ran an external study examining how well Cuemath students performed relative to non-Cuemath students. The Grant study demonstrated that Cuemath's students jumped on average two grades ahead of their peers, with 8th grade students outperforming other 10th graders on their SATs.

Manan Khurma, Founder and CEO of Cuemath, said:

"We're delighted to have partnered with Google for Education – and to be the first EdTech company in India, and one of only 30 companies in the world to be participating in Google's accreditation program. Accreditation that we can now award to our own Cuemath students.."

Together we can ensure Cuemath's students get the best opportunity to gain knowledge and develop 'real-world' skills. The First Creator Coder Certificate will help to ensure that every student has access to the collaborative coding and technical skills that will unlock opportunities in the classroom and beyond, no matter what their future goals may be."
