Maths Wiz and English Wiz has provided me with knowledge to improve my academic ability which in turn has assisted me to be awarded one of my school's academic scholarships.
I like how it helps me learn and helps me with school when I'm stuck. Maths Wiz helps me a lot with the tutorial explaining everything I need to know. No one at school knew how to do Integers and I was the only person in class who knew how to do them because I had studied ahead.
I enjoy using the program. I like that I learn new things and that if I mess up on something the computer always gives me another try so I can understand it more. In the English lessons, I like games like Hangman. It’s fun to learn while playing games.
Maths Wiz is really exciting, it never gets boring... When I started using Maths Wiz, it was fantastic, I went from a C to a B minus, to a B plus, to an A.
Before using the program I was failing English, now I’m getting 75%. In Maths I was getting 80%, but now I’m getting 100%. I topped the class; I even corrected the teacher with Algebra on more than one occasion! I’m really happy with that. I’m feeling a lot of confidence now.
The 'Maths and English Wiz' programs assisted me with school and were easy to use. I found that what I had learned at school was reinforced with the lessons in the program when I got back home. It allows you to review any key concepts at home so you can be sure you understand them. I liked the fact that it allowed me to prepare for outcomes and exams.
For each subject, after a topic was completed in class, I would use the program to build and deepen my understanding of each topic. The multiple choice questions reinforced the core concepts and I found the theory at the start of each topic to be extremely beneficial towards my studies since it outlined simply what I needed to have a grasp of.
I have referred other families to this program and recommend it for anyone who wants to see their children enjoy the learning process and give them a competitive edge at school.
As a parent it concerns me that Charlotte may not be exposed to the entire curriculum. That was one of the particular things we liked about the Maths and English Wiz. It introduces new topics but also allows her to revise and revisit topics when she's perhaps not being exposed to them at that specific time in school.
Olivia has been using Maths Wiz and English Wiz for five months now and she absolutely loves it. She is going in to year one this year and is already doing year three Maths and reading year two books. Not only has it improved her numeracy and literacy it has grown her computer skills.
I am most impressed that, using the program, the students have successfully learnt difficult concepts without the 'hard work' which is generally associated with learning Maths through conventional methods. They feel that they are succeeding and success breeds success.
On a personal level and as a teacher who genuinely loves Maths, I have no hesitation in recommending Maths Wiz to anyone who is looking for a comprehensive and extensive Maths programme for school children to improve their Maths skills, understanding of key concepts as well as boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
The increase in confidence was quite remarkable. In fact, kids that had no confidence had started contributing in the classroom. They were particularly proud to show that they had grasped some concepts which the 'smarter' kids were finding difficult! Symmetry was one such example.
A lot of children start off school just as smart as any other but for some reason their readiness isn't available for them to learn something that might be a Maths series or some phonics or some reading and then they never get to catch up. They're always feeling that they're not good enough. They're always feeling that the other kids are smarter than them and they need some special help... Maths and English Wiz can give parents a great sense of direction and a sense of structured involvement, which will give them great satisfaction.
You can learn at your own pace; and then it's not like when a teacher asks you a question, you get it wrong, then you get embarrassed. Here, the computer asks you and doesn't judge you. If you get it wrong, you just simply go back, learn a bit more progressively; so, it's a very safe way of learning, and yet it's fun at the same time. It's interactive.
