What can you expect from a month of Matr sessions?

Matr’s maths programmes enable you to get started and then continue on a pay-as-you-go basis, but we’ve found through the 1000s of children we’ve taught in schools that the best results are gained from children who enjoy our tuition for 1 month or more.

Matr's tuition is great for parents and children

After at least a month on our maths programme, your child can expect to see a whole host of positive outcomes, all of which will have an impact on not only their maths in the classroom, but also their love of this often scary subject in the outside world.

Here’s what you can expect to see in your child after a month of Matr maths!

Your child’s confidence levels will skyrocket

In primary school, maths is often the subject that triggers a fight or flight response amongst children.

While there may be one or two members of the class that are delighted by decimals and fascinated by fractions, there are a lot more for whom the mere mention of maths is enough to send a shiver down their spines.

This is likely down to a lack of confidence in the subject, but this is something that we pride ourselves on being able to help with here at Matr.

The data available from our pre and post-session reports shows that children that began our tuition sessions with a low level of maths confidence saw a 10% increase in their confidence levels from just one lesson a week.

Confidence from Matr maths lessons

By having a one-to-one maths lesson with the same tutor every week, your child’s confidence will grow as they get more comfortable in asking and answering those questions that they may not feel comfortable tackling in front of 30 classmates!

Within a month of starting their Matr online maths lessons, your child will be able to take their new-found confidence with them back into school life, making more contributions in class, and pushing themselves that bit harder now they know they can!

Your child will make progress faster than they do in school

Making progress in maths no easy feat, but it is something that will happen for your child from their very first Matr lesson.

In a trial with leading educational assessment publisher Rising Stars, children who took part in our maths lessons made 7 months of progress in just 14 weeks of lessons.

Matr progression in maths

To help you understand the progression and development your child is making throughout their lessons, we provide you with weekly progress reports so you can make sure that they are on track.

Matr progress reports include:

  • Lesson information (the content that was covered)
  • Learning objectives (skills and knowledge)
  • Areas that will need more work in the future
  • How your child felt about the lesson, their engagement levels and any comments they had

Within a month on our online maths programmes, no matter what age your child is, or which stage their maths knowledge is at, you will see from their progress reports how far they’ve come.

Your child’s attainment levels will shoot up

In maths, with an increase in confidence comes an increase in progress, and with an increase in progress comes an increase in a child’s attainment levels.

By hosting our maths lessons on a one-to-one basis, tutors are able to quickly and easily address any misconceptions your child may have about any area of Key Stage 2 maths, and help them to quickly but thoroughly move through the curriculum.

What Matr's maths tuition looks like in action

This approach also ensures that key concepts are reinforced and foundations are secured, helping your child to keep up, catch up and achieve.

As attainment is judged so differently for every child, our tutors are trained to adapt their lessons based upon your child’s needs to help them achieve the most they can not only from every session, but from their Matr learning experience as a whole.

We pride ourselves on having the experience, knowledge and passion to help your child achieve in maths, and having done it for almost 50,000 children since we began, we know how to help each and every child get over their personal finish line in maths!

Within a month you can expect to see your child either making a breakthrough on a concept that they have been ‘taught’ at primary school but never quite understood or finally being given activities that challenge their need for more advanced maths.

On a Matr online maths programme, unlike in a class of 30, the lessons really can be personalised.

Your child will get better at relating maths to the world around them

Maths plays a huge role in our everyday lives, and without having the right foundations and skills in place children can often be confused by some of the calculations they are required to do in the outside world.

Thanks to the interactive nature of our classroom, our tutors always make maths relevant to your child and the world they live in. Arithmetic and reasoning practice is supported by problem solving questions that relate the maths your child is learning to the real world.

Within a month they will be helping you to work out how much change they are due in a restaurant, or what a 20% discount means for a pair of trainers, by practising these skills in our online classroom your child will be more than ready to tackle maths in the wider world after their lessons!

Your child’s attitudes to learning will improve

Learning habits are built at primary school and we encourage children to take ownership of their own learning and to reflect on their own thought processes.

Tutors regularly check in with a child to gauge their level of engagement or understanding and draw attention to how a child has overcome a challenge in maths, or has pushed on when the maths became harder.

We strive to keep the activities at just the right level for the child so each piece of knowledge gained builds on the last.

Within a month you will hear them explaining how they understand the relationship of multiplication to division to a tutor or attempting a maths challenge that you previously hadn’t thought them capable of.
