‘We started the sessions to improve our son’s maths, who was in the bottom group and was miserable. Within the year of being with Intuition, he didn’t just move up, but he is now in the top class and delighted. His confidence is now right up there -

All maths is built on the foundations of adding, subtracting, multiplying and division. A good understanding of these basics will help your child be confident and successful in more complex tasks that will follow.
Mind The Gap
If your child has gaps in their basic understanding of maths, now is the time to act. Ensure that your child has these basic number skills as during their primary seven year they will be preparing for the expectations of high school, where their abilities will be reflected in which maths groups they are placed and later what exams they are eligible for.
How we can help:
Move On Up
Secondary school maths is very different from primary and can be a bit of a shock to both pupils and parents alike. Problem solving rather than 'sums' can be quite daunting.
Preparing The Way

Your child's confidence can easily be knocked if they find themselves in a group they did not expect to be in. It can be quite a leap to get into a higher group or some students experience anxiety if they find it difficult to keep up and are too embarrassed to ask for the help they need in class.
