How it works
Step 1: Student Asssessment

Each child is assessed across multiple years of the curriculum to find any knowledge gaps holding your child back. This is a very important stage of the tutoring process.

The Math assessment phase takes up to 45 mins and provides you with a full report on your child’s Math competency.

Step 2: Personalized Learning

Using the results of the assessment we create a lesson plan especially for your child. Every Monday, the lesson plan is updated and your child is given a new list of activities for the week to complete. Essentially the lesson plan takes your child through 3 learning stages.

  • Revision and catch up: When starting with APLUS America, the lesson plan will target the knowledge gaps identified by the assessment. By filling these gaps children become much more confident and ready to learn what is being taught in class.
  • Consolidation: Once the child has caught up, they are ready to consolidate and practise what is being taught in class. This is a very exciting time for children as they are beginning to “get it”.
  • Extension: Once they have consolidated what is being taught in class, children are ready to start progressing ahead of the class. These kids begin to find school much easier and saves them time doing school homework.

You never have to guess what to do next. Our lesson plans do that for you.

Step 3: Tutor Support

Math Support: Our weekly lesson plans ensure that children have the support and direction they need to work at their own pace throughout the curriculum. Even though every activity provides instant feedback, and Math Wiz teaches, skill builds, revises and tests we realize that sometimes children need more help.

If your child is ever stuck on a question or they just don’t seem to get something, they can pick up the phone and speak to one of our friendly tutors up to 10 hours per week.

  • No additional charge for use.
  • Available from 5pm to 7:30pm, Monday to Thursday.
  • Use latest technology including screen sharing and whiteboard technology to more clearly explain concepts to children.
  • If children are stuck with school homework our tutors can give direction on which lessons to complete in the program.

Parent Helpline: Many families explain to us they are frustrated with school reports as they can be vague and so infrequent. With APLUS America, we provide you with weekly progress updates so you can see how your child is "really" progressing. Parents are also encouraged to discuss their child’s progress on the programs with our tutors. These discussions are very helpful for our tutors, so they can improve the learning program for your child.

Step 4: Rewards & Motivation
For some children, doing better in school is not enough motivation or reward. We get that! To help with this we implemented a rewards program where kids earn points as they learn. The cool thing is they get to spend these points to enter competitions; to win real prizes or even better, buy real prizes from our incentive store such as movie tickets, iTunes cards or store vouchers. You will be surprised how children respond to a little encouragement and reward – it really does help.
