Frequently Asked Questions

Contact your local Mathnasium Learning Centre with any questions you may have about early childhood maths tutoring. Here are some of the more common ones we get:

  • How can I start teaching my child maths even before they enter school?

    Parents can serve as maths tutors for children by talking about maths concepts to help reduce their child’s frustrations with maths subjects down the road. Introducing simple, foundational maths can include activities like counting with your child, playing with blocks to improve spatial reasoning, and using music or sports to reinforce simple concepts.

  • Is there a way to tell that my child needs maths help before they go to primary school?

    Some signs that your child needs help with pre-maths concepts during their pre-school years include not being able to understand changes in quantities or count. They may have trouble choosing which shapes are larger or smaller than others.

    Every child is different and learns at their own pace, but if you have concerns about whether your child needs help before they start school, early childhood maths tutoring can identify and resolve concerns.

  • How can I prepare my child for primary school maths?

    One of the best ways to prepare your child is to enrol them in maths tutoring for little kids. At home, you can read books with them that build simple concepts. Many board games for young children also involve some element of maths.

    Point out ideas about position, direction, size, shape, and space with items around the house. Present them with simple “problems” involving numbers and help them solve them at home to supplement instruction from maths tutors for children.

  • Can you get your child a maths tutor before they enter kindergarten?

    Yes! Mathnasium has specially trained maths tutors for children as young as four years old. With short, poignant lessons that are easy to grasp and fun to learn, our maths tutors can impact the course of children’s lives.

    By making learning fun at this very early age, early childhood maths tutoring can help to nurture a passion for learning and set up a base for self-confidence and independence.

  • How can I make sure my child is prepared to enter kindergarten?

    Your child should have a healthy grasp of several pre-maths skills. These include concepts like number sense, measurements, counting, patterns, shape identification, and spatial relations.

    They should recognize the simple ways that quantities change as well as the connections between numbers and items. Your child will be prepared for kindergarten if they understand the concept of more or less as well as estimating. Maths tutoring for little kids is an incredible way to help your little one prepare for kindergarten!

  • What are some ways to introduce maths into your young child's everyday life?

    You can introduce maths into every day by talking about patterns your child comes across in architecture or nature. Taking a “shape walk” is a fun idea, and you can encourage comparisons. Ask your child to think out loud about their problem-solving adventures. If they are in a programme for early childhood maths tutoring, ask them questions about what they learned each session.

    Above all else, make every introduction fun to help them remain engaged. Short, simple lessons are key.

  • How can I start teaching my young child basic maths skills?

    A great way to teach young children basic maths skills is by using teaching aids disguised as toys. Role-play in areas like pretend kitchens and grocery stores. Use collections from nature to teach them to sort and analyse groups. Encourage them to use sculpting clay, help them draw maps, and let them help you measure for baking.

    Maths tutors for children are specially trained to incorporate fun into even the most basic maths lessons.
