It is no exaggeration to say that the most important years of education are from age 5 to 11. Not only do children need to learn the basics before they can learn anything else, but it is during these years that confidence and other attitudes toward learning need to develop positively. For the latter reason, even more than the first, a primary school maths teacher carries a heavy responsibility.
While it is reasonably easy to make English a fun subject (who doesn’t like stories?) teaching maths is more demanding both for the child and for the teacher. The child needs to grasp each detail to succeed, and the primary school maths teacher has to give every child extra attention to make sure they are keeping up. When there are some thirty children in a class that is no easy task, and it isn’t always slower learners that suffer – understandably, the most capable often get the least attention.
Fortunately, online primary maths tutors can provide the backup that our children deserve and thanks to advances in technology, private tuition is affordable too. However, online primary maths tutors must still possess all the teaching skills that a conventional primary school maths teacher needs. They have to recognise exactly where the child’s strengths and weaknesses are, make those lessons fun and build up that all-important confidence.
It is vital to avoid a negative experience, so how do you know if your chosen online primary school maths tutor has those essential skills? That is where Principal Tutors can help. We maintain an extensive database of tutors – only engaging those who are qualified and fully experienced in teaching key stage 1 & 2 maths. We can also match the most appropriate teacher for individual children. The structure we provide to all our online primary maths tutors ensures they have everything needed to teach effectively online. That includes providing clear reports and, if requested, recordings of every session so that both child and parents can review them as much as they need to.
Suzanne is really helping to increase my son’s confidence in maths. Her manner is very positive and she gives lots of positive reinforcement. She is calm, constructive and willing to adapt her lesson to the needs of the child
My daughter has progressed significantly in just 4 weeks. Her confidence with maths is improving so quickly. Would definitely recommend to others who are struggling and need a boost in confidence.
The initial communication from Principal Tutors was swift and efficient. The maths tutor was allocated to my son within a couple of days and we have found her to be excellent. My son enjoys his tutor lessons with her. Her support has helped him so much already (after a few lessons) and his confidence in mathematics has grown greatly in that time. Her communication with me as a parent has also been excellent. Thank you Principal Tutors – we are so glad we found you!!!!!
Maths Tutor – Mark
“We were put in touch with a maths tutor called Mark, who was able to help my son with his maths work on a weekly basis. He has made really good progress with his maths and has improved in confidence also. Great tutor.”
This careful matching between a primary school maths tutor and a particular child is only possible because of the huge number of potential tutors that you can reach online. At key stage 1 (which is usually for children under 8) most children, although not all, need shorter activity sessions. There is no “one-size-fits-all” way to teach maths, especially for this age group, so our skilled primary school maths tutors adapt their lesson plans accordingly.
Our experienced primary school maths tutors also incorporate plenty of games and competitions to maintain interest and build enthusiasm. This is particularly effective in making repetitive tasks such as times tables more interesting and enjoyable. Some children learn a lot faster when they aren’t conscious of the fact they are learning at all! For example, matching sums and answers visually is more engaging while drawing or building geometric shapes appeals to a child’s creativity.
At key stage 2, we find that a lot more children are hampered because they have lost confidence or built up an anxiety about the subject. Fortunately, most formal tests for 7-year-olds were recently stopped and this may help, but it is still vital to identify and remedy confidence and anxiety issues before children reach secondary school. One-on-one help at school always comes in short bursts, but our online tutors can provide devoted attention that allows your child to relax. That way, they learn to feel differently about the challenge, which makes all the difference.
All children begin school with a natural enthusiasm that can turn into frustration when it is denied the chance to grow. Skilled online tuition gives that enthusiasm the space and opportunity it needs. Our personalised strategies can help every student overcome negative experiences with maths.
