Maths Tutoring Specialist Explains Why Doing Maths in Daily Life is Important

Tue, 11 Dec 2012 02:39:06 EST

PERTH, Australia December, 2012 – Children working on their maths trying to solve a confusing equation sometimes blurt out 'Why do I have to do maths? I can't use this when I grow up!' or 'Maths is boring! This is a waste of time!' But education, math and finance experts all agree, this is not true at all. Simple everyday tasks such as paying the bills, balancing the monthly budget, and saving money, among many others, require at least a basic knowledge of mathematics.

Janice McGuire, Teaching Manager at Perth English and maths tutoring service NumberWorks'nWords, says, 'Children need strong maths skills because mathematics is a learning requirement that crosses all subjects and is a very important part of career development once the student graduates from school.' www.numberworksnwords.com.au/

The fact remains, however, that maths is not very popular with primary and high school students. And with the release of a study conducted by the University of Chicago, which found that maths can activate the part of the brain which is responsible for an individual experiencing physical pain and visceral threat detection*, it's official – maths can hurt.

Anne S. could see that her son, Sam, was struggling with maths but she didn't have the time or the necessary skills to help him. She tried the Perth maths tutoring service offered at NumberWorks'nWords and after only a few weeks, she said, 'I know that it's only early days but I have already noticed an improvement, not only with his mathematics, but also in his overall attitude towards all his school subjects. He even said to me just last week that he likes Maths now.' www.numberworksnwords.com.au/

Teaching Manager Janice says, 'Maths tutoring at NumberWorks'nWords can help bring out the best in your child. Our proven after-school maths tuition classes target the identified needs of the individual child to improve their achievement levels. Curriculum based programmes, which cater for all levels from Pre-primary to Year 10, are tailored for your daughter or son's individual needs. We set goals for your child, monitor their progress, and provide regular progress reports so you can keep up-to-date and they can see how they're improving. Best of all, the lessons make learning enjoyable for children.'

Janice continues, 'It's our aim to provide one-on-one maths tutoring that gives children the skills they need to work and reason with numbers throughout their schooling, but most importantly, throughout their lives where it really counts.'

The maths tutoring with Perth maths tutors at NumberWorks'nWords offers programmes that were developed by qualified maths experts and are continually being updated. Their teaching methods are completely compatible with those used in Western Australian schools applying new numeracy strategies so students are not confused by differing teaching methods.

Mother Jan B. shares her experience with NumberWorks'nWords, 'We are thrilled with how well it has gone and it is a delight to see Sarah's progress and enthusiasm. It is a real credit to your programme and your leadership, and I have nothing but praise when I tell others about her success there to date. Thank you so much.'
