One Second Math

Don Sevcik

In 2007, one programmer started a small, automated math tutoring website with no money in a cold, Illinois basement. Now, this little math tutoring website gets 3.5 million visitors from 36 countries around the world. This book covers the full story behind MathCelebrity.

Don Sevcik found a unique way to use his love of math to launch a profitable career and help tutor thousands. It started when he used math homework tutoring as a diversion from his corporate job. As a result, Don has become one of the world’s go-to math tutors and an expert in building a thriving web-based business.

  • Understand how to work a side business while at a full-time job

For parents, you’ll discover the unfair advantages your child will gain in school and in their career such as:

  • Secure an automatic salary increase for your child before they ever start working (Page 155)
  • The must learn, lucrative skill for your child to learn for any job. Hint, this is not taught in school (Page 175)
  • Discover how increasing your child’s speed on quizzes and tests, even by a few minutes, puts them ahead of the pack for a raise and bonus in their future career (Page 190)
