Children may find it difficult to understand certain maths concept when they are first taught at school.

Sometimes,  sufficient time may not be spent on certain topics due to time constrains and some children will be left behind.

Lacking knowledge of basic maths concepts will have a detrimental effect on a child’s development of skills which they will require as they progress through the educational system.

It is possible to work with your child to fill the gaps in learning and build their confidence with maths.
