Why focus on Math?

Watch the video below from a recent parent workshop to learn why we do what we do.

Our Philosophy

At KidsPower we believe in the power of the child. We embrace their potential, remove barriers and challenge students without overwhelming them. We support through encouragement and recognition. We treat each child equally without bias whilst recognising their unique strengths. Every child deserves to be their best. We are much more than teachers - we are coaches. 

 

How we deliver results

Assessment
Careful pre-course assessment and placement ensure students:

 are grouped by similar ability,
 are assigned the right coach for their level
have access to the right content to challenge but
 not overwhelm them.

World-class program
MathMaster is based on the Singapore math methodology. Students who learn using the Singapore math approach consistently achieve the best math results globally. The Singapore math teaching approach instils a deep understanding of mathematical concepts through a physical, visual and abstract continuum.

Small class design
 We ensure each class has less than ten students so students can be given individual attention as they need it. 
 Teamwork is an essential skill in today's modern work environments. We encourage students to work together finding alternative solutions to problems.

Trained Professional Coaches
 All our coaches are professionals, trained in both coaching kids and in Singapore math methodology.
 Our coach trainers are world-class experts in the Singapore math framework and in mathematics itself.

Visual and Kinesthetic Learning
Our programs introduce problems based on everyday scenarios that students can relate to and understand. 

We introduce maths concepts using physical objects and then progress to visual representations. As students progress in their understanding, we increase the level of abstraction.

In-Course Assessments
We assess students regularly during our programs to identify and address gaps in their understanding.



Home Study
 We give students additional home study so they can extend their learning at home whilst becoming self-motivated.
 We empower you as a parent with the understanding of how to support your child with their home study.

KidsPower Philosophy
We engage kids in a way that they develop an outstanding relationship with the coach based on values of trust, encouragement and empowerment.

My son had so much fun with the class! He's super excited. I have to say that you are an incredibly good teacher, and very good with children."

A De Roux

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for all the support and teaching you have done with Max this year. He has absolutely loved it. I've realised this really is all his own drive and he couldn't have done it without you.
