Why Mathnasium Avoids Helicopter Tutoring

Helicopter Tutoring_02

Ready for the new term of the day? Helicopter Tutoring. It occurs when a tutor lingers over the shoulder of a student, not allowing them to make any mistakes or think for themselves. It happens often in the tutoring world and unfortunately, can result in A's on homework and much lower grades on exams. 

Mathnasium of Kelowna knows that in order to master a concept, most kids need experience with trial and error. When mistakes are made at Mathnasium, we're equipped to put your student back on the right track. When the concept is truly understood, a student won't be left high and dry during a test, looking around for a tutor who isn't there.

What students need is a healthy mix of instruction and independent practice. This is the best recipe to gain self-confidence and skills in math. Our instructors are ready to encourage, teach, and course correct your student in every session they attend at Mathnasium, either in person or online. 

Come see us today at Unit 137 - 1835 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, in the Capri Mall, or send an email to connect online. We've helped more than 70 local students in the last year. We'll be happy to show you around either in person or online and introduce you to our Mathnasium instructors. Sign up today for a Free Assessment & Trial Session!
