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.
Does your child often study for hours – with little to no progress? That’s a strong indication that they study ineffectively. Studying ineffectively slows down their progress by 3-5x. In addition to that, there is nothing more frustrating than wasting hours with absolutely no results.
It is definitely destroying your child’s confidence and motivation!
Conversely, with effective study skills, your child will progress much quicker, be able to solve harder and harder problems in a matter of minutes, and gain speed. The confidence and grade will follow. And so will willingness to study more. Without the frustration caused by studying for hours with no results, your child will feel much more encouraged and motivated to put more effort into math.
The key fact is: studying effectively isn’t difficult. It doesn’t require your child to study more. As matter of fact, it means that your child will understand more in less time.
It’s a matter of applying a few important principles and adopting them as habits. Your child needs to study actively, by solving problems and analyzing mistakes, not just reading the textbook or watching videos. They need to convert every mistake into a learning experience – analyze it, understand it and correct it. They need to apply the Rule of 3, after every mistake they understand, they need to solve at least 3 more examples of the same type to solidify their understanding. By making these critical changes to their study routine, your child will be able to feel progress every time they sit down to study math. It will motivate them to put in more effort and help them enjoy math more.
