Skating on thin ice is nerve-wracking! Wondering if you're going to fall through or fearing that you might go down in a mighty heap… sounds pretty stressful, right?
This is exactly how students, who are clinging onto an incomplete math foundation, feel when their teacher continues to introduce more concepts! Understanding multiplication might have been enough to keep you skating through division, but what about when we add on multiplying fractions and calculating percentages & variables too? Is the ice your student is skating on getting too thin?
One concerned parent decided to bring his daughter to Mathnasium to address some of her math issues. After enrolling Sunny, he said:
"The (tutors) explained things step-by-step so Sunny could understand them. It has really helped my daughter." -D.S.
Other satisfied parents are noticing too:
"Even after just six months of tutoring at Mathnasium, our son has gained over a year's growth on his tests! We are very happy with our son's progress in Mathnasium. His confidence has soared! -J.B.
"Mathnasium has helped my son get caught up. The instructors have done a wonderful job teaching him math. If you have a student who is struggling in math, or just isn't 'clicking' with his teacher, Mathnasium is a great way to keep your child from falling behind." -G. V.
If you feel like your student could use a more solid foundation in math, come and give Mathnasium of Kanata a try! Your child’s beginning experience will look like this:
1. Our specially-trained Mathnasium Instructors meet your student where they are. We find any weak spots in your student's mathematical understanding by giving them a comprehensive math assessment. This assessment is specifically designed to reveal any gaps in your student's math foundation.
2. Second, we address those weak spots. Our tutors will teach your student step-by-step, going over as many examples as needed. We often use multiple teaching styles: auditory, visual, hands-on, etc. Then, your student is given independent practice time. This is where they find confidence in solving problems on their own using their new math skills, and this is where we see “Eureka!” moments.
3. Finally, we will celebrate with them when they conquer a subject matter that stumped them before. The cycle continues with more advanced math, while reinforcing the message to your child that they CAN do hard things. (It brings a pretty awesome confidence boost too!)
