Does your child often study for hours – with little to no progress?
Do they have to sacrifice sleep to study math?
Do they constantly fall behind and play catch up and still don't do well in math?
Do they watch videos, read the textbook – with no progress?
That’s means that they study ineffectively.
Studying ineffectively is destroying your child's progress, confidence and motivation!
There is nothing more frustrating and discouraging than wasting hours and hours of effort, with absolutely no results.
Conversely, with effective study skills, your child will progress much quicker.
They will be able to solve harder and harder problems in a matter of minutes.
And they will gain speed, motivation and confidence.
Better grades will follow.
That, in turn, will motivate them to study more.
It will be much easier to motivate your child to study if they know that 1 hour of math will help them really improve and get ahead, instead of being another hour of “math torture” just to get another F and feel stupid.
Without the frustration caused by studying for hours with no results, your child will feel much more encouraged and motivated to put effort into math. Many students actually start enjoying math once they see their progress and what they are actually capable of.
At Learn Vibrant, we learned that even students who don't particularly like math, are happy to have tutoring to relief them from getting confused in class, pushing through homework on their own and failing tests. As long as they know they can really improve.
And with powerful study skills – they can.
The key fact is: studying effectively isn’t difficult.
It doesn’t require your child to study more.
As matter of fact, it means that your child will understand more in less time.
It’s a matter of applying a few important principles and adopting them as habits.
- Your child needs to learn proactively - solve problems and analyze mistakes. Not just read the textbook or watch videos. They need to convert every mistake into a learning experience – analyze it, understand it and correct it.
- Your child needs to apply Deep Learning, after every mistake they understand, they need to solve at least 3 more examples of the same type to solidify their understanding and gain confidence.
- Your child needs to tackle math fundamentals to have solid math foundations for more complex topics. That will help them focus on new topics and learning, instead of getting stuck on small details.
By adopting these simple but powerful techniques, your child will be able to feel progress every time they sit down to study math. It will motivate them to put in more effort and help them enjoy math more.
