London, UK (PRWEB) September 19, 2007
Problems of overcrowded schools and inadequate materials leave all students, even the brightest ones, clamouring for limited teacher attention. As a consequence many children suffer from a shaky foundation in basic maths skills and de-motivation due to lack of confidence. These are the exact points that the MathRiders learning system is designed to overcome.
The MathRiders system was developed within the highly successful Helen Doron Educational Group. "We are already working with franchisees worldwide that are keenly aware of the huge demand for quality extracurricular maths enrichment programs in their countries," explains CEO, Helen Doron. "And we're very glad to report a trend towards expansion taking place this year with a special emphasis on the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand." MathRiders currently run Learning Centres tailored to local languages such as Hungarian, Portuguese, Hebrew, Arabic and English; enhancing the mathematical abilities of children from the age of 4 all the way up to 18-year-olds concerned about university entrance exams.
"MathRiders programs outperform private tutoring by exhibiting comprehensive long-lasting results," continues Helen Doron. "Students may get a temporary boost in a single subject with a private tutor; however MathRiders helps develop study habits, overall understanding and the building of vital logic processes in the brain. Students not only advance in one maths discipline, but are better equipped to learn a variety of subjects and internalize new concepts introduced in class."
MathRiders methodologies are founded on an exclusive collaboration between some of the most qualified minds in mathematics, child development, and pedagogic disciplines. The MathRiders lessons offer nuts and bolts maths learning - helping students acquire a firm knowledge in algebra, arithmetic, geometry and more, but it doesn't stop there. MathRiders lessons also provide specially developed learning materials created to enhance logic skills and challenge thinking for all learning levels.
"All MathRiders program lessons are held within an environment of encouragement, student participation and responsibility, creativity and self-expression, confidence-building and indisputable individual achievement," clarifies Tsafy Simons, Pedagogic Director of the MathRiders program. "Getting young people motivated is the first vital step to success, and that kind of learning starts as early as 4 years old, where we set the stage for positive reinforcement of basic mathematical concepts and cognitive development."
"Our junior program Mathjogs, introduces younger children to mathematics in a way that makes sense to them, actually nipping the problem of maths underachievers in the bud," continues Tsafy. "Through enjoyable and challenging activities, children aged 4-11 develop number sense and the ability to think mathematically. They also integrate useful study habits that will accompany them throughout their lives in problem solving and logical thinking."
Since 1986, Helen Doron has been creating exciting and enjoyable learning programs designed to bring out the very best in each individual child through encouragement and fun, while upholding rigorous standards of academic excellence. "MathRiders is no exception" she comments, "and we're getting the results to prove it. We are currently looking to expand globally, with an eye towards qualified people to become MathRiders Franchisees. They are people with a keen interest in teaching mathematics for children and the business savvy to develop into a rewarding enterprise."
