Your child needs help gaining practical understanding of math concepts, going through (completing and understanding) homework without being frustrated and overwhelmed, preparing for tests ahead of time (in a structured way) and covering essential fundamentals applicable for the upcoming math topics.Their fundamentals level is very low, because they likely forgot or never learned them well. All of your child’s math difficulties are hurting their confidence, as they struggle with most math problems, with understanding math in class and with taking tests.
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.
