Jin’s Mental Arithmetic Academy began 35 years ago in the home of Mrs. Chen. Prior to moving to San Jose, California, Mrs. Chen taught abacus for 12 years in Taiwan. At the time, class sizes were small as abacus was a new cultural phenomenon; through word of mouth, interest in learning abacus quickly spread among the community.

With a growing number of students, Mrs. Chen eventually expanded her classroom to the current location. Today, classes are held for students in all age groups, ranging from elementary school all the way through high school.

Jin’s Mental Arithmetic Academy not only provides an educational environment but also a place where students build valuable friendships and assist in each other’s growth through mutual encouragement and healthy competition.
