More and more parents are sending their kids to tuition. There was a survey of 100 students and results showed that 97 of them are taking tuition. So here's the question - which level did you start sending your child for Maths tuition?

At Primary 5, if the kid really needs it because from my experience, that is the year most when the standard jumps. Also only for subject the child cannot make it. Why tuition just because everyone is doing it?

Only if your child needs it...naturally. It should not be a lifestyle choice Smile

I'm a little late into this conversation but certainly it depends on your definition of tuition. Does tuition imply private tuition? Is is something that the parents can do? To me tuition is simple extra help outside of school. So my response is - anytime and the sooner the better. It is just a matter of how the tuition is given. For eg. why not turn tuition into games when they are younger like counting red cars? Why not teach fractions with marbles and food? Why not teach science with experiments at home? Tuition can be fun and a means of spending quality time with the kids. It doesn't just have to be at the table with a set of books - even for a dull subject like math.

Perhaps that would be a good article for you guys? Something about activities that teach kids while they play.
