Learn the art of connecting to students while teaching. It's what they crave most.

Check out exclusive video and pics from our book signing launch party.


When educators or parents work with students, challenges often arise. Knowing a subject does not necessarily mean one can teach it, let alone teach it effectively and inspirationally. So many factors, strategies, and actions combine to make an exceptional learning connection. One-on-One 101 is the authoritative roadmap to mastering this art.

As the educational landscape becomes steadily more tech-based, the students themselves confess that what's missing the most is a real human connection while learning. We know that dedicated and passionate educators are out there. Our hearts wish that every student alive could learn from such gurus. These professionals are highly sought after, because they're able to impart the information smoothly, while also keeping the student engaged, and even interested. I am proudly one of these people. So I decided to write a book that outlines every tool I've developed over the years, so that you can spread the same results in your lives as well.


What is the “secret sauce” that goes into prospering within this realm of education? The precise formula is known by a select few but direly needed by so many. This book serves to empower anyone to be a successful teaching/connecting expert.


Learn critical strategies that'll engage you and your students, which include:


  • using specific socio-emotional cues

  • leveraging praise without falling back on faulty longstanding conventions

  • exact ways to meaningfully connect with students

  • using specific verbal phrases

  • avoiding pitfalls

  • permanently ending student shutdown

  • saying and doing everything students desperately need from you, as their teacher and mentor


Inspired instruction is a true art form. The book is written with honesty, and the messages within its pages have the power to permanently change lives. Many parents have already reached out, sharing how the book offers them tremendous insights into connective parenting as well.

Meet the author


Robert Ahdoot began his teaching journey 13 years ago as a classroom math teacher. Throughout that time, his personal mission was to explore every specific way to reach his students. He saw firsthand how learning exploded when he connected to them as people, and such an elevated connected reversed any state of shutdown they experienced. One mental note led to several, which led to a living and growing teacher playbook. Through years of dedication and focus on student connection, his classes became fun, lively, and positive beacons of learning for both him and his students.


Yet within so elevated a space, he and his students felt a restlessness. It was the dawn of the video era, and they knew that what they were stumbling upon something that could truly benefit others, if they could only experience it. So out came an impromptu camcorder perched atop a precarious stack of books, and the Yay Math movement was born.


YayMath.org is a free online collection of math video lessons, filmed LIVE in Robert's classroom, featuring authentic student interaction that's inviting and emotionally connective. It has given life to now iconic, full costume math characters, like the "MathemaGyptian" and "MathemaChicken." Since its inception, Yay Math videos are viewed at a staggering 2 million minutes per month.


Yay Math's online proliferation has provided him the opportunity to give multiple TEDx talks on conquering math anxiety, speak at schools about how to permanently achieve inspired learning, and pen his debut book, One-on-One 101: The Art of Inspired and Effective Individual Instruction. It's the complete guide to connecting to learners, and it has been adopted by multiple school administrations as a blueprint for cultivating transcendent student-teacher learning relationships.
