We believe that every child has the potential to do well in their math courses. Math is all around us and when we teach numbers and how numbers are integrated into daily living, a new perspective towards math is created. Play based learning is a great way to teach math as long as that can be translated onto paper and provide results on assessments. That is why our philosophy towards math is to make math easy to learn by teaching a love for numbers and taking the intimidating aspects of math out of the equation. When a child learns to like math, they will do well in math and when a child does well in math, they will like math. Focusing on fundamental building blocks will give each child the necessary confidence to approach math in a favourable way.
Our approach to teaching math is simple: we meet each child at their current skill level and then we work to fill in the gaps with the goal of building a solid foundation in fundamental core competencies in the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum. With a strong base in all the fundamentals, this sets up the child for success in their current grade level and also for the next grade level. By working with the child's strengths, we build confidence in a positive way and then set an encouraging mind frame for working on individual skill gaps. By identifying their skill gaps, we address the weakest links in their foundational understanding. This is a foolproof approach to making math easy to learn.
WHAT SETS US APART
We love math and see the numbers all around us in unique and creative ways. To be able to translate this to children and pass on the affinity for math is our sole mission. Our approach to diagnosing the missing skill gaps will help to identify what needs to be addressed in order to ensure a strong foundation in mathematical core concepts. Differentiated instruction for each child will provide an individualized approach so that each session culminates to a successful end goal.
