Math Plus Tutors also offers Math Plus Junior for reading and writing in English and French to suit your child’s needs.
High school students participating in our programs who show signs of struggle with mathematics have a history of struggle in elementary grades as well. To solve the problem we believe in addressing the root cause from the start. Waiting till students reach secondary school level will only escalate the problem. It may also lead many of them to switch to the applied strand of math that will limit their choices in post-secondary education.
By extending our programs to include elementary grades we are building the necessary groundwork for the students to improve their math skills from an early age, thus gaining the confidence as they grow up and perform better in subsequent years, and eventually succeed in higher math expectations in high school and post-secondary education.
