Easy as 1, 2, 3?

Maths – you either love it or you hate it. But we all have to learn it, and so do all our children in our programmes around the world. In Romania, the exams our children sit require a much higher level of knowledge than of GCSE exams in the UK, particularly for Maths. The level of knowledge required is so high and the children in our House of Hope and Denisa Day Care Centre work incredibly hard to achieve good grades.

The level of knowledge they need of mathematical subjects is very difficult and it is surprising that the children have to learn and take their examinations without a calculator. For the children who struggle with Maths, we wanted to help them do well and become more confident for their exams.

Maths teacher, Alison, arrived at the House of Hope at the end of August from the UK to tutor our girls. It was a fun and interesting experience for our girls to learn Maths in a different way to how they are taught at their school. Many gained new understanding for difficult maths problems and the girls and the staff were all encouraged by Alison’s time with them in Dobrun.

They all worked very hard with their tutor and we hope that they will do well in their exams to achieve their hopes of one day attending university. Read more about our work in Romania.
