You want the best for your child. Whether it's support because they find maths difficult, or extra practise to prepare for entry exams. You want your child to succeed and feel confident in their math skills; after all mathematics is an essential part of daily life.
The trouble is private tuition is expensive! I should know, having taught it for over two years. It's not always suited to everyone either. Not everyone can get to a centre/tutor or perhaps other commitments make time management difficult.
Whatever the reasons, if you're looking for an alternative route to support maths skills with your child, this course is it!
This course is designed to support self-study for the Mathematics element of the 11+ exam. It is suitable for use by parents who wish to support their child in their studies, or for children themselves to follow. The course contains a number of lessons with demonstrations of the 'how to' element of each mathematics topic, alongside worksheets to aid further practise in these skills.
11+ Mathematics for parents and children can be studied at any time in any location although for those looking to gain success in the 11+ should be started in year 5 of Primary education (or year 4 for confident mathematicians). The course is also suitable for upper KS2 students who just want support with maths, lower KS2 students looking for further Tuition for challenge or lower KS3 students who struggle with maths.
Why you need to take this course;
Great course to support general maths. Am following it so that i can support my two as they move into years 4&5 of primary. Loads of resources for extra practise. Impressed with the value for money. Would recommend.
Don't wait to enrol. Start studying now and give your child the first step towards maths success!
