   Over 100 schools Pifagorka operate in Russia and its neighbouring countries

Mental arithmetic is a branch of mathematics that allows students to perform calculations in their mind at the speed of a calculator using imaginary abaci. The methodology goes back 2000 years. According to it, when a child learns to do simple maths using counting frames (abacus, soroban), it stimulates the activity of both of their hemispheres. By the end of the course the child will be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide three- and four-digit numbers in their mind. Students are taught in groups of 8. Each child studies at their own comfortable pace. The programme lasts approximately 8-24 months. Apart from mental arithmetic, classes cover other exercises: eye and posture gymnastics, memory and concentration development.

The head of the school Pifagorka, Aleksandr Matiushichev, talks about the peculiarities of mental arithmetic

Mental arithmetic classes will allow children to solve equations in their mind, increase their reading speed, improve their concentration, hearing and perception skills, increase their mental potential, improve their memory, think creatively, make their own decisions, etc.. Parents quickly notice the progress their children make. It is due to the high efficiency of the methodology that the chain Pifagorka is so rapidly developing in Russia and abroad.

*Whether or not your business is successful depends on your own hard work. The price provided in GBP reflects the date when the calculations were made as well as the relevant Big Mac Index.

Prices in Russia and in the UK differ. For you to understand the potential of the business we used the Big Mac Index in our calculations (the cost of a Big Mac). A Big Mac consists of a number of goods (bread, cheese, meat and vegetables) so it could be considered a clear reflection of the national economy. Of course, it’s not the best way of comparing the pricing in different countries but it can give you a general idea.

As of January 2017 a Big Mac costs £1.78 in Russia and £2.99 in the UK. The difference equals 42.3%. This is why Bonplan raises the cost of Russian services for the UK by 42.3%.

Judging by the operation of Pifagorka in Russia, after 8* months of running the business you will have 52* students. Average cost of a course is 4 000 Rubles a month* (£80, if we base calculations on the Big Mac Index*). If 52 students attend classes at your school, your profits should amount to £4 160 a month*, considering the Big Mac Index. Bear in mind that you’ll be able to set prices for your customers yourself. You may want to set a higher price for your services in the UK. It’s up to you.

* Results are not guaranteed and depend on your hard work.

Important: we don’t take into account the level of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita. This criterion is much higher in the UK than it is in Russia, which signifies a greater potential of the business.

Your expenses will include office rent, payroll, taxes. If you will be working on your own, you can exclude rental and payroll expenses from the list. However, there may be other expenses that you will have to take care of.

IMPORTANT! The cost of the package and all calculations are approximate. For your convenience all figures are provided in the GBP according to the currency exchange rates at the day of publication of this information. Real calculations will be made in the US Dollars according to the currency exchange rates that will be relevant at the day of the transaction.

Bonplan interviews the founder of the mental arithmetic school Pifagorka (VIDEO)

Aleksandr Matiushichev tells Bonplan that his school was opened in 2014. The management company runs 5 branches of the school in 2 Russian cities, and over 100 partners in Russia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Moldova and Tajikistan run dealer outlets Pifagorka.

According to Aleksandr, foreign dealers will receive guidelines on running the business, mental arithmetic methodologies, access to study materials (videos and texts), dealer support available in English, German, French and Spanish.

The founder of the school also talks about mental arithmetic. It’s a methodology of mental development that originated in Japan and China. Studying mental arithmetic allows children to improve their memory and concentration. Their parents quickly notice their progress. Due to the high effectiveness of the methodology Pifagorka school chain is rapidly growing in Russia and its neighbouring countries. Dealers see that their work brings great results.

Aleksandr points out that 3 classrooms in a small Russian city Cherepovets (200 000 ppl) bring proceeds in the amount of 700 000 Rubles to the management company (about £9 895), as of September, 2017. The size of a classroom can be just 15 sq m. Lately, other schools have been requesting the company Pifagorka to provide its services to their students. The company also hosts national contests among students of different ages, which is one of its competitive advantages.

The interview is taken by Ilnur Akhmerov.
