So it's true to a certain extent, even in this era, that if one wants to study, he/she doesn't need any tuition or nagging.. He/She can still excel de.

I think it also boils down to personality.

Last Friday, ah boy chose to break a piece of not so good news to us while we were walking to Tim Ho Wan for dinner.

He just passed the recent Maths test, highest score in class was 2 or 3 marks above the passing grade.

Dun ask me how difficult the test questions are.

I can recognise the numbers and some symbols, but I surely cant understand their relationships when string together

I left the matter till today to ask him exactly how he managed to just pass the test paper (elder boy and hubby not at home).

He said some concepts he was wrong, some careless mistakes here and there.

Now I am on a lookout for a Maths centre or a Maths tutor who can do an assessment of ah boy's understanding of Maths concepts covered in school and then give a crash course - preferably a few consecutive days, not more than a week.

If anyone knows of such centre or tutor, kindly please pm me.

Your kids are so much younger than Jennifer's - you can't really compare? Just let go a little at a time.MrsKiasu wrote:If only I could let go...guess I m paying my dues now.

Totally agreed.

Each child has his/her own pace. Some faster, some a bit slower than what we as parents would like.
