Is your child falling behind at school because they can’t do Basic Maths?
Do they really understand basic Maths? Are they using these fundamental skills to get good results at school? Your child can change the way they do Maths – so that they not only understand it and can do it, but start getting better results more consistently.
The key to getting better results in Maths isn’t just repetition and being shown how to do it. It’s having good basic skills. Having good basic skills will give your child the foundation and confidence to try harder Maths – and feel less stressed about tests. Yet without basic skills, your child will need to rely on their calculator and will get to a point where they don’t know how to use it for more difficult Maths.
So how does your child move ahead? How can they get a better education in Maths without just being shown how to do it without the understanding?
The Mathematics Workshop uses age-old methods
Basic Maths is basic Maths and hasn’t really changed over the years. It’s easy to learn and builds confidence quickly and is the critical foundation for being able to do more advanced Maths.
Imagine your child being confident with Maths at school – doing well in tests and getting great results. It can happen even if they don’t think it can.
Introducing the Back to Basics Maths Tutoring Program
The Back to basics tutoring program where your child will learn basic Maths skills they don’t have or have forgotten. Skills that will put them on the path to getting better results at school.
It’s a series of simple Maths exercises that will give your child an understanding of how to do basic Maths. It will help them develop skills that they can apply to the harder Maths they’re struggling with at school. It will also give them confidence with Maths – a confidence to have a go at harder questions without the fear of getting the wrong answer.
If your child is still struggling with Maths then it’s more than likely they have gaps in their understanding of the basics. If they learn those skills then they’ll have confidence with Maths and the underlying foundations of all the harder Maths they struggle with.
My Back To Basics tutoring program will help your child:
- Develop a solid foundation of basic skills.
- Learn key skills in Basic Arithmetic, Fractions, Decimals, Integers and Equations.
- Develop their Maths skills by completing simple exercises.
- Consolidate their skills and understanding with homework exercises.
As your child learns (or re-learns) and practices the basics, their skills & confidence will improve and they’ll find that their schoolwork will start to become easier to do.
Note: how much your child improves and how fast they improve will depend largely on how much effort they put in.
In their first lesson your child will do a basic skills test. Then I’ll help them to get started on some of the areas of weakness that show up in the test.
They’ll practice the relevant skills by doing one or more exercises for the remainder of the lesson. If they get stuck or need help with any questions, I’m there to help them.
If they’re like other students I’ve helped with basic Maths, then by the end of the lesson they’ll feel a lot better about the Maths in the exercises they completed.
Towards the end of the lesson I’ll give them a homework sheet based on one of the exercises they completed.
In on-going lessons your child will be working through their individually designed Back to Basics worksheet program that will target the specific areas that showed up in their basic skills test.
They can also bring their schoolwork to each lesson if they need help with it. However the primary focus in the first few lessons is to get them started on learning some key basic skills to help them build their confidence.
If your child likes the way I teach them and does the homework I give them, their confidence and understanding of Maths will grow and their results at school will show some improvement.
How much improvement will depend largely on how much effort they put in.
