Maths is a core subject, not just in school but for life as a whole. So being able to understand it, and receive help when you struggle, is key.

 

But it can be difficult to provide this support for your child at home, and in ever growing classes of 30, teachers struggle to do so effectively.

 

For this reason many parents now turn to tutoring to boost the learning that their child is doing in class. This way, a child of any age can receive personalised help, focused on their specific needs. Matr’s online primary school tuition is taught by maths specialists, giving your child the support they need to excel at Key Stage 2 and beyond.

Why might you need a tutor for an 8 year old?

In Year 3 and Year 4 students are introduced to more complex maths topics than they have had to do in Key Stage 1, such as angles and measuring time. These can be difficult concepts to understand, especially if a child was struggling at Year 2.

 

Matr tutors work with children to address their needs first, and use these as building blocks for new topics, introducing them in ways that are easier for a child to understand.

 

With plenty of practice and questions in lessons, tutors can make sure children really understand a subject.

How does online tutoring for 8 year olds work?

Matr’s bespoke online classroom brings all the benefits of having a home tutor without any of the hassle.

 

Students log onto the classroom and are connected to their tutor by voice chat. They share the same screen, so children can ‘write’ their answers, and tutors can give them examples or show them where they went wrong, in real-time.

 

At the end of every lesson, a report can be accessed from our parent portal, showing you what your child has learnt, what they’ve improved on, what was new to them, and what they still need to work on. You’re kept in the loop!

Parent

“Matr provide a fantastic service. The tutors explain methods clearly and concisely, and my son stays engaged throughout the lesson. When we do his usual school homework, it can be a bit of a chore, but when it is time for his Matr lesson, he happily hops on the laptop and gets stuck in.”

Steph

Teacher

The children were all engaged throughout and were buzzing afterwards. Listening to them explain their maths to someone else was like a little window into their minds - wonderful.

Nadja

Child

I'm way more confident for my SATs and if some of the things we've revised come up, i'll remember the tips my tutor told me!
