Top of the Class, but... For seven years I've watched my beautiful son hunched over Kumon math worksheets. He finds little enjoyment from them and I'd rather see him chasing butterflies. They've certainly helped his Math performance at school __ he's top of his class, but I wonder if the effort has been worth it in the big scheme of things. He's currently solving about 100 polynomials per day. Man, he can really solve polynomials, and fast. But for what? His arithmetic skills are awesome but when presented with a math story problem, he falls apart, helpless. No matter how many times I suggest that he _ read the problem carefully, note down the givens, assign names to intermediate and final values, form equations,activate his Kumon engine (brain), he just can't get past the read_the_problem_carefully step.
Hire a good math tutor: Parents should choose an experienced tutor for their children. An experienced subject expert can only assist his/her student in a better way. Neither parents can be available all the time nor do they help their children in all subjects. Therefore, taking learning help from proficient professionals is the best way to get knowledge on each topic. They can choose online tutors, as well. While choosing a tutor, parents should check some information such as the qualification and experience and the flexibility in terms of time.
