Here's Our Formula For Making Your Child
HOW CAN YOU HELP MY CHILD?
You’ve probably not seen your child Maths-Confident.. And certainly not able to explain why they “get it” now!
ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN...
Understanding the Big Picture
1. Many children come to hate Maths because they don’t understand it. In school there is no time to explain the big picture because often teachers are teaching to the test or have too much to teach.
Studies in Singapore show that getting hands on in exploring how Maths works by using physical materials and pictures, resulted in Singapore’s students being #1 in the world for Maths since 1995.
Carol Vorderman: “Everybody wants to feel that they’re good at something. If the children get good at Maths, their confidence in absolutely everything else grows because they’ve got like a superpower.”
Learning as a Group
2. Learning in a small group has proven benefits to the progress that can be made. In my last class I split the class into small groups of 3 or 4 children. The result was phenomenal.
Sarah Lamerton: “I had children who wouldn’t speak out in front of the class or even offer their ideas in a small group. Giving them the means to speak in small groups enabled them to take risks, speak up in their group – even talk in front of the class. They mentored others and at the same time reinforced their own learning.”
Decades of Teaching Experience
3. As a child I struggled with Maths. I wasn’t taught in small groups. I wasn’t taught using images or pictures. Maths was ‘hard!’
Now I train teachers to teach Maths and mentor teachers across Plymouth. How did this happen? I discovered the formula… I grasped the big picture concepts… I reaffirmed my knowledge in small groups… I leveraged decades of quality experience that went before me.
I’m a fully qualified, DBS checked teacher who devoted almost two decades teaching in inner city schools. I was proud taking children who were significantly below the national average and nurturing them into happy, thriving, Maths-confident children. Through Teach My Child I am able to offer this to children all over the country through my online sessions.
Bruno Reddy (Times Table Rock Stars): “Sarah was the instigator of ‘Plymouth Rocks’, an annual times tables competition involving dozens of Plymouth schools. She worked tirelessly to make the events a success, knowing that the extra attention to detail would make her event even more fun and exciting.”
Happy, Thriving, Maths-Confident Children
4. Imagine your child a year from now…
What reaction do they have when they have Maths homework?
What reaction do you have?
Your child breezes through the Maths with a smile on their face. At Parents evenings the teacher tells you how confident they are and how much progress they are making. So much so, they always put their hand up volunteering to answer questions and offer to help other children in the class.
Homework takes a quarter of the time it used to with no tears, tantrums or cries of ‘I don’t get it!’ Maths is ‘hard’ becomes Maths is fun. Your child is now Maths-confident with no limit to what they can achieve.
Nikki Martin: “We joined Teach My Child as Hope was struggling with Maths and wasn’t enjoying previous tutoring. Getting Hope to tutoring previously has been a real battle, involving tears and great upset. Since joining Teach My Child this no longer happens. She positively beams after each session and looks forward to coming. Hope enjoys everything about the sessions. Sarah makes the sessions fun and interactive. She listens and explains things clearly without making her feel stupid. I would 100% recommend Sarah.”
