Many students have faced seemingly impossible math questions. Stress and anxiety can arise from this, causing students to have more of a mental block when it comes to learning math. This, in turn, makes it even harder to learn and causes the fear of math to become worse. At any age, from primary school to university, students can develop a fear of math. There are many ways to help your child overcome their fear of math, including doing a review, taking Online Math Lessons, and doing fun math activities.

Review the basics

It can be hard to move forward when you haven’t fully grasped the basics. Many consider math to be like a language; imagine trying to learn to spell before understanding the sounds each letter makes. If your child is struggling with their math, review key concepts such as addition, subtraction, mental arithmetic, multiplication, division, decimals, fractions, angles, and word problems, until you find out exactly where they are encountering difficulty. 

Hire a private math Tutor

There are many Math Tutors Online that can help your child work through their fear of math and learn to approach problems in a different way. In a classroom children often have to learn by whatever teaching method is presented to the whole class. With a private Math Tutor, the Tutor can tailor the lessons for the individual student. Alternative approaches and different materials will present the information to your child in a different way, which may help them move past their blockage. 

A Math Tutor can also help to review more basic lessons and discover where exactly your child needs help. Having a private Math Tutor who can work with your child one-on-one to create personalized math lessons online can make a big difference in calming your child’s fears. On WikiExpert, you can easily find available Online Math Tutors to help your child. 

Play online math games for kids

There are many math games online for kids. When math becomes a fun game rather than a stressful problem, it is much easier for children to approach it with an open mind and learn. Online math games such as Prodigy help kids develop their math skills, progressing at their own individual pace while having fun. This helps remove the fear of math and presents it as an educational recreational activity instead of a scary worksheet.

Quelling your child’s math fears can be done by reviewing the basics to find where they need help, hiring a Math Tutor Online who can identify where your child needs help and assist them in grasping key concepts, and by making math fun.
