# How strong is your child's math foundation?

May 3, 2021 | Killarney

Skating on thin ice is nerve-wracking! Wondering if you're about to fall through, fearing that you might go down in a mighty heap… sounds pretty stressful, right?

This is exactly how students, who are clinging on to an incomplete math foundation, feel while their teacher continues to add on more difficult 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 her daughter to Mathnasium to address some of her math issues. After enrolling, the parent has expressed several times how grateful she is for the support we provide but what's even better is hearing our student say:

"Thank you for everything! I love how you guys take your time and listen to what we don’t understand and our problems." - Sofia

Another satisfied parent noticed that just after 5 months:

"Tutoring is making a huge change in Cas's abilities and confidence. Thank you." - B.H.

"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 'clickin' 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 Killarney a try...it will look just like this:

1. Your student will do a comprehensive assessment so we can identify what they know and what they don't. This is the basis for the custom learning plan. It is unique just like your child's current math situation.

2. Our specially-trained Mathnasium Instructors will meet students where they are, and fill in any gaps they may have in their mathematical understanding. Our tutors address any holes in that math foundation teaching skills step by step, going over as many examples as needed. Then they'll encourage your student to think things through during independent thinking time.

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 he/she CAN do hard things. (It brings a pretty awesome confidence boost too!)
