I share your sentiments and I guess we have all grown up in that type os situation where math can never be fun.
However, my boy is now in MathMonkey, its an american math enrichment program but their techniques are asian so its something with solid foundation after research. I used to have my kid at kumon and the same thing happen as you. But over at MathMonkey, my boy is actually WANTING TO GO to class.. I have only attended the trial class to see, but what i have seen is that they have a game-based curriculum and thus eliminating the "boring" worksheet part that math always require.
Instead, it is thru this game that the kids will practise their skills and I guess my boy doens't really think that he's practising, but rather they are playing a game! ( kids always love to play i suppose! )
This games are individual as well as team so it also promotes the teamwork and social skills at the same time too. as my boy is a little shy, but after just 2-3 lessons, he seems much happier after lessons.
just sharing my expeirnce, i hope it helps and maybe you could give it a try!
by the way they are located in katong area.
many thanks! have never heard of this mathmonkey! wil do my own research and check with u if i have more qns ya?
