Confidence in Math has a ripple effect. It boosts your child's self-esteem and automatically results in higher performance in every other subject.
Math is one subject you get better at with practice. And that's what we do at Techfunic.
- We create groups of 3 kids who are in the same skill level and are taking the same focus topic this fall when school opens.
- Our hand-picked tutors curate content for this small group to revise topics, further practice, and learn new concepts.
- When a child finishes a practice problem first and raises their hand, he/she gets to explain it to the rest of the group.
When a child teaches, he/she is engaged and will never forget that concept in life.
By studying in a team environment, they learn tolerance and social skills and play to each other's strengths. They become more socially rounded.
So what happened last year with virtual learning?
- Teachers taught concepts over Zoom and assigned homework
- No live class time - so teachers didn't get to walk around in class and make sure kids practiced the concept so they could do the homework
- Technically there are office hours - but hey, let's get real, did your child sign up to spend more time with their teacher, that too over Zoom?
- Some kids didn't turn in the homework, because listen, this is going to be a lenient year, right? So, why bother?
- Some kids googled the questions, keyed in answers they found online, and submitted the work
- Tests and final exams were administered over Zoom too - most were not reflective of how much the children actually learned
- Many schools did tier grading since they had no real way to evaluate how the children did.
