Why Mathnasium avoids Helicopter Tutoring?

Feb 19, 2022 | Abbotsford

Ready for the new term of the day? Helicopter Tutoring. It happens when a tutor hover over the shoulder of a student, and not allowing them to make mistakes or think for the answer by themselves. This type of tuoring happens more often resluting in A's in homework and much lower grades on exams.

Mathnasium of Abbotsford knows that in order to master a concept, a student have to go through trial and error, meaning that after explaining the topic a student should try to do the question by themselves even if they get it wrong. We at Mathnasium put the student right back on track whenver a student made a mistake. By this when the student have full understood the concept, he/she won't be looking around for a tutor who isn't here.

What a student really need is a healthy mix of instruction and independent practice. This is the best method to build self-confidence and skills in Math. Our instructors are ready to encourage, teach, and course correct your student in ever session. 

We've been helping students for 2 years. We'll be happy to show you around and introduce you to our Mathnasium instructors. Sign-up today for a free Trial Lesson!!!
