Primary Maths Catch Up

Do you want to be able to help your child
with their Maths yourself?

Are you worried that your child has maths anxiety?
Do you want ideas of how to help your child develop strategies to cope in a world surrounded by maths?

Why not purchase a parent’s pack from my series of self-help courses… where I step you through simple, but effective strategies to help you, help your child

For about the price of just one hourly one-to-one private lesson, you can purchase one of these packs and start to be able to help your own child in a way that you haven’t been able to do up to now

Each pack includes enough resources and multisensory activities to do on a daily basis for at least two weeks, most likely for a whole month!

I take all the confusing and complex viewpoints from academic research and make it accessible to parents, breaking it down into simple steps and activities that you can do on a regular basis with your own child. 

I can give you the skills and also the maths vocabulary to teach your child the key skills that are most likely to be causing a learning block and preventing them from getting to grips with age-appropriate maths.  

With a better understanding of the science behind how children’s brains develop and the correct vocabulary and phrases, you will be more able to help your child to grow and thrive in the way that they deserve. 

The packs have been designed and developed for children age 7 upwards and are to be worked through on a daily basis until the pathways in the brain are formed and your child starts to make sense of the concepts. 

Parent Primary Maths Catch Up courses, for you to help your child. 
The first series of 6 packs are all based on Number skills and building all the concepts in order, from the ground upwards.

Each pack includes a series of:

  • Resources in PDF documents
  • Quick and easy to follow activity videos
  • In-depth videos where I explain the activities and the reasoning behind them 

Parents should usually expect to start with Pack 1 and once all the tasks are mastered move on to Pack 2

“Children who undertake just 15 minutes a day using any of the methods, find they can expand the capacity of their working memory considerably within a matter of weeks.  The key requirement is that it is done for a short intensive spell every day without interruptions or distractions.”
