You have completed your questionnaire. Based on your responses, we crafted a customized report for you.Keep reading to find out our recommendations for your child for reaching their main math goal, their potential for improvement and the exact reasons why they are struggling with math.
Your child’s homework and test scores are high but they aren’t progressing as fast as they could. In school math, they rarely encounter problems they aren’t sure about. Their class doesn’t move forward fast and your child, given the right approach and personal attention, could be progressing 2-3X faster. In addition to that, they like math so they welcome extra challenges. The problem is, school doesn’t challenge them enough, and your child’s math potential and enthusiasm is diminished.
Your child needs help covering and expanding on the most difficult topics. Firstly, most challenging problems from the topics they are covering in class. Secondly, expanding those topics to higher levels of complexity. Moreover, connecting the current material with higher-level topics from 1-2 grades ahead. Finally: interesting, fun and challenging problems they will never see in class, from competitions, analytical challenges and more.
Your child likes math and challenge and you want them to take advantage of that. You want to provide them with opportunities to progress faster, understand more math, have fun with it, challenge themselves, and increase their confidence. Your child is often bored with school math at their level. Instead, you want them to be excited about math, excited about their progress and what they are learning.
Your child’s math anxiety is likely caused by pressure: to consistently do well on tests, they need to solve the most challenging problems they are currently not confident about. To eliminate math anxiety, your child needs to boost their confidence.
They need to start by focusing their practice on the top 20% of the most challenging problems. They need to understand those in-depth, step by step, as well as be able to solve them independently. They need to cover many variations, to be prepared for absolutely anything they could see on the test. They need to solve problems under test-like conditions: without notes or guidance and with time limit.
