Maths has many areas of learning. Starting with the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. After that it branches out and for some students there is no stopping. For others it becomes difficult to grasp and this is usually due to the fact that they haven't understood the basics or one of the basics mentioned above. If a student struggles with their times tables it would be wise to continue revising them until they have learned them properly. It will take time but it will be a wise investment of time as this student will excel in the future and will be thankful for the educational instructions received earlier on in life. There is a huge amount of free worksheets, interactive games, online quizzes and activities on our web site. Feel free to search around and watch your students enthusiasm for maths grow.
