Usage levels on Math-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 Math-Whizz Tutor two to three times a week for 20 to 30 minutes each time. Since Math-Whizz is an engaging online learning environment, your child may initially exceed the recommended tutoring time.

Your child’s math reports
More confident children may find their Math Age is ahead of their actual age, whereas less confident children may find the opposite. Ability also tends to vary across the different topics. Regardless of your child’s starting ability in math, you want their Math Age to go up. Over time, your child’s Math Age will not only improve, but they will also catch up in their weaker topics, giving them a more ’rounded’ math profile.
