Benefits of the online tutor for your child
- Your child fulfils their untapped maths potential
Maths-Whizz is an online tutor in maths that caters to your child’s unique ability – helping them reach their true potential and preparing them for success in school. Maths-Whizz uses ‘Maths Age™’, just like ‘reading age’. You want your child’s Maths Age to go up. Experience has shown that children who use Maths-Whizz for 60 minutes a week improve their Maths Age by, on average, more than 18 months in their first year of use.
- Every lesson your child receives is matched to their exact learning needs
The first thing the maths tutor will do when your child first logs in is ask them a few maths questions to find out what they like, as well as what they don’t like. Find out their starting ability in all the different topics in the maths curriculum, as well as their overall Maths Age. From there, your child will get the right lessons at the right time, with extra help when needed and extra attention given to their weaker topics – ensuring that your child receives the lesson that will bring out their potential.
- Your child builds confidence in Maths
Maths-Whizz lessons are presented in an interactive, animated and powerfully dynamic environment. A whole new learning experience is created – with games, adventures, medals and certificates for success. Your child can buy toys and plants for their virtual play area using credits earned through their hard work on Maths-Whizz. Reward structures such as these incentivise learning, reducing the potential for ‘burnout.’ Rest assured, your child will remain engaged, excited and motivated to learn, all the while building confidence in their ability.
Benefits of the online tutor for parents
- You don’t have to decide what your child should learn next – Maths-Whizz does it for you
What that means to you as a parent is that you don’t have to worry about what to teach your child next; the Maths-Whizz tutor does that for you, it acts like a human tutor. If your child is given a lesson that they don’t understand, Maths-Whizz recognises that and uses a different lesson to bring that understanding across in a safe and secure environment. Maths-Whizz also provides you with special tools to make your life even easier. You can still stay one step ahead by viewing the lessons that your child is struggling with, as well as the lessons that your child will be working on next.
- You instantly understand your child’s unique maths ability
Your Maths-Whizz subscription includes the Parent Dashboard with multiple views to suit your needs. This enables quick access to real-time reporting features that allow you to stay up to date on your child’s progress both overall and across different topics. Not only does it take the guesswork out of ‘what did you learn today?’ – it’s like having access to an end of term report every day! You’ll love how easy it is to play an active role in your child’s maths education.
- Your child’s individual learning journey continues, regardless of your schedule
Your child’s learning does not have to stop when their teachers do. You can schedule your child’s usage for a time that works for you and for your child, then you are free to continue with your day, safe in the knowledge that your child is being given the individual support that they need. The Maths-Whizz tutor will do all the hard work for you, but unlike a human tutor, it will never get bored or frustrated and never judges.

How does the online tutor teach your child maths?
1) The concept is explained in an engaging way using interactive animations.
2) The practice questions are set. It is at this stage that the Maths-Whizz tutor comes into its own. In the same way that a human tutor would do, the Maths-Whizz tutor instantly reacts to your child’s needs and provides extra maths help if they struggle to understand a concept.
3) The new knowledge is tested so that your child learns to apply what they have learnt to a classroom or test environment.
Online tutoring best practice
Please read the following section carefully! Parents play a crucial part in their child’s success.
Maths-Whizz gets the best results with well-informed parents who view their online reports on a regular basis and schedule time for their children to use the online tutor for 60 minutes a week. If you follow these best practice guidelines and fulfil the expectations for parental involvement in Maths-Whizz, you can guarantee the best results for your child.
Usage levels on Maths-Whizz
Regular usage guarantees sustained improvement and long-term confidence. It is essential that you create a weekly routine, ensuring that your child uses the Maths-Whizz tutor two to three times a week for 20 to 30 minutes. Since Maths-Whizz is an engaging online learning environment, your child may initially exceed the recommended tutoring time. You are advised to create a disciplined schedule from the beginning, in order to prevent ‘burnout’. Equally important, if your child under-uses the online tutor, it is your role as a parent to ensure that they stick to their schedule. ‘Little and often’ is key!
