Alexei Beltyukov is a Russian entrepreneur with many successful startups and ventures under his belt. Mr. Beltyukov was recently hired to help develop and launch an educational online platform called Solvy. This online learning program is geared towards high school students who are looking to enter college.
Solvy stands out for many reasons from other math learning programs. The first major standout of Solvy is that it incorporates real world examples and problems in its equations. This is done to grab the attention of the students and encourage them to work through the problem to achieve a real solution. Today’s youth often ask questions why is this important or why should I study math. Solvy shows them that math is used in the real world in fields like architecture, engineering, chemistry and finances.
Another great thing about Solvy is that the instructor of the classroom can easily tweak and customize assignments to fit the student needs and interests. Solvy offers an individual approach to mathematical education. For example if a teachers knows that one of his students is interested in banking, he can offer them questions that incorporate banking into the assignments. This will motivate the student and help him or her prepare for college studies and work in the field of banking.
Solvy’s ability to offer custom tailored problems to students is making math more fun and helps motivate students to try their best in a subject that is often lacking in popularity. Not only can Solvy offer problems to students in a field that interests them, but a teacher can provide more problems on a subject matter that a student is currently struggling in.
Yahoo Finance has heralded Alexei Beltyukov’s Solvy project as being a highly promising educational project. Educators have also praised Solvy and its software. Mr. Beltyukov is a former medical doctor who studied business abroad in France at INSEAD College. He is an entrepreneur in residence and business adviser there.
