At MathsBuddy, practical work is prioritised over workbooks and computer programs because it helps children learn what each concept is about and it gives them the opportunity to learn and use the mathematical language in a meaningful setting.
Very often, children are doing lots of maths, either on computers or in workbooks, but they still have not really grasped the concept and get stuck when asked a question that doesn’t follow the typical pattern. This can make them feel that they are bad at maths or that they are ‘stupid’.
Tailored To Suit Each Child
To overcome your child's fear or lack of confidence in maths, Colette establishes where your child's confidence waivers and builds from there.
This could be through a 30 or 60 minute lesson and, as the classes are online, you can see exactly how to support your child and can follow this up at home.
Therefore you only need to book a class when it is necessary and you are not tied into a contract.
MathsBuddy offers individualised or paired support as evidence shows it's the most effective method of bridging the gaps in learning.
Teachers and parents often comment on the change in children’s confidence and their understanding even after one class.
If you feel your child could do with some additional support, contact Colette to see if the MathsBuddy approach is right for you.
