Inessa Rifkin and Irina Khavinson fled the Soviet Union in search of a better life for their children. Together, they created a math education that mirrored their own - one of quality and depth. They would spark a movement.
It has been over twenty five years since that first class was held at Ms. Rifkin's kitchen table outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Today, the grandchildren of RSM's founders and children of RSM alumni and teachers continue as students. Our commitment to the quality of our program means that RSM remains a family business. We do not franchise, and only open a new location once a gifted and experienced teacher becomes available to lead it. Today, RSM serves over 50,000 students across North America, and has been covered by the Boston Globe, TED, NPR, and the Atlantic.
Our students post remarkable scores on math competitions, in school, and see a greater confidence in their math and learning abilities overall. Our alumni go on to attend the best universities in the world.
