Rocket Club Math just opened their third Manhattan location at 23 Warren Street in Tribeca. Rocket Club Math isn’t just your average math after school program—it’s a fun tutoring club for children ages 4 to 12 that thrives on making math an exhilarating adventure.
“Everyone else says they make math fun, but Rocket Club actually makes math fun!” shares Sammy, a delighted 7-year-old member. The program’s testimonial page brims with praise from parents, young members, and even renowned founders. What sets this boutique program apart from the rest and makes it a resounding success in New York City?
A parent’s heartfelt reflection echoes the sentiments: “I signed up because my daughter was excited about learning math, which already surprised me. I had no idea she was going to start her own business. I’m amazed. This is the future of education.”

Children attend two-hour classes per week alongside peers of the same grade and skill level. To develop the program and create the best learning experience, instructors craft individualized lesson plans based on the child’s one-on-one assessment, implement grade-specific modules using different teaching methods (Common Core, Singapore Math, and Russian Math), and infuse of element of interactive and “gamified” math play to their classrooms with tools like Blookets, Kahoots and Gimkits. Instructors also tailor lessons to help members prepare for entrance exams such as ISEE & SSAT. Members earn certifications for their resumes and accumulate ‘Rocket Fuel,’ redeemable for exciting prizes, fostering a sense of achievement and fun.
For founder Alex Hodara, Rocket Club Math’s inception was a nostalgic revisit to his own childhood. Influenced by his father’s ingenious teaching methods—introducing math through a shared love for fantasy baseball—the foundations of Rocket Club Math were formed.
“My dad was brilliant in that he was teaching me math with things that I loved” recalls Alex. “Fantasy baseball taught me spreadsheets, ERAs, batting averages—the foundations for higher math concepts and even budgeting.”
Despite venturing into real estate and entrepreneurial pursuits, Alex couldn’t shake the idea of Rocket Club —a program intertwining math, entrepreneurship, and fun. Providing tutoring and enrichment with real world math applications. “I really wanted to build the club I wish I had as a kid.”
Rocket Club Math isn’t solely about learning formulas and equations—it’s an exciting sanctuary where math blossoms into an exciting journey, transforming young learners into confident, creative thinkers. They now have three locations in New York City: Tribeca, Upper East Side and Upper West Side.
