Super Math Program From 68% to 95%

Postby SuperKaisu » Thu Aug 06, 2009 4:33 pm

I am a parent of a boy, who has had problems with his math. First, there was a motivational issue. Second, careless mistakes peppered his work. However, recently I found an Oxford University full time tutor who was able to correct his problems.

From what I gather, motivation is key and the elimination of careless mistakes is also important. Finally, techniques to make sure the kids understand the concept well will truly unlock the kids' potential.

These are my observations from the fantastic results produced.

Unfortunately, he does not give home tuition but only group tuition. One wonders how much better it would be if my boy had one-to-one attention with him.

For all parents out there, the key is thus motivation, being meticulous and having a well-grounded understanding.

I totally agreed with you.

The kid must like the tutor, the tutor must be interesting when teaching math.With interest and the right concept impart, the kids will go very far...

Of course, the kids must also be careful during the exam and I think be it in whatever exam ,situational awareness is the key to success...

Hi SuperKaisu,

My son has the same problem as your boy. He is now P4 and he is pretty weak on math and science.

Could you pm me the tutor contact ? How much is he charging ?

Thanks.
