Virtual tutor offers free maths help to every child in UK to help boost skills

Millions of kids have now gone back to school after the summer holidays and the focus is back on education.

For students, a new year comes brings new challenges as courses get more advanced. Parents can also become concerned about how they can help their little ones succeed.

If your child is struggling with maths, there is a simple thing parents can do to help them learn at home – and it doesn't need heavy books and calculators.

Maths-Whizz is an online tutoring service but rather than having a real-life person helping your child through a topic it's all done with AI.

Designed for children aged between five and 13, Maths-Whizz can be used on the computer, tablet or mobile and is not much different to the games you've likely downloaded to your phone to keep the kids busy on long car journeys.

Using animated games, Maths-Whizz will work out at what level (or "maths age") your child is and what they need to improve on.

From there your child will be given games to play based on the subjects they need to revise, and they will earn points to spend on customising their personal avatar.

We tried it out on our kids and it was a winner.

Studies have seen that children who play just an hour of Maths-Whizz a week for a year accelerate their learning by 18 months.

It's also used in a number of schools up and down the UK, so it will have your teacher's seal of approval.

With the start of the school year, Maths-Whizz is offering a 7 day free trial of tutoring. After that, if you want to sign up you can use the promo code 'MATHS20' for 20% off.

Richard Marett, CEO of Whizz Education said: “Having spoken to many teachers and parents recently, the feedback has been that learning loss experienced by students during the pandemic has been felt most acutely in maths.

“By completing the initial assessment in our virtual tutor, Maths-Whizz, parents will find out the 'maths age' of their child, a clear guide to how far forward or behind their child is performing.

"Not only that, the parent dashboard shows how their child is faring in different areas of maths.

"Having completed the assessment, the virtual tutor creates an individualised programme for each child to redress their weakness and push them forward, creating a solid base for more complex maths in later years.”
