When I first started with Kohila, I was really down on myself, and I didn’t know what to do. Now my confidence has really improved. At the beginning of the year I was almost failing and now I am almost at an A. I am really looking forward to next year.
I am in grade 11. I used to hate math, and I was really bad at it, and now I really like math and it’s one of my favorite subjects. Now instead of saying, “ugh I have this”, and just sitting there not knowing what to do, just waiting for someone to help, I do all the problems on my own.

When we first started, my daughter was barely passing grade 9 math. Not only have her grades gone up, her mindset has changed, and her self-confidence has improved which has affected all other areas of her life for the positive.

Why is math a struggle for so many students?
After working one-on-one with over 1500 struggling math students here’s what I can tell you:
Many students have never had proper math instruction.
If your child struggles with math, it’s because the system failed them. Unfortunately, not all teachers are created equal, and not all curriculums work. Fact is, anyone can do math given the right instruction and the right environment.
Teachers cannot re-teach material from previous years.
The school system is not designed to assist students who fall behind. Teachers are responsible to deliver a curriculum, which is itself often flawed, and they have no time and sometimes no motivation to re-teach concepts.
Many students blame themselves.
They'll call themselves ‘dumb’ or think it runs in the family. When a student loses confidence, they lose motivation. Continuous struggle and failure is a form of suffering which can impact their emotional well-being and behavior.
Students are never taught ‘how’ to be a student.
Student's don't know what it means to be a student, and how to become a successful one. Children create their own methods or use none at all. Bad habits are easily formed. What students need to learn are proven strategies and tools for success.
Most parents have difficulty finding effective help.
Parents inevitably default to hiring a homework helper who will create dependency, or a tutoring company who promotes group sessions and drills over true understanding. A struggling student needs a committed and skilled mentor who develops both mindset and performance using a proven system.
Most students 'believe' math is difficult to learn.
A student's mindset is the key to their success. With expert guidance, any struggling student can transform their beliefs and turn a negative fixed mindset into a positive growth mindset.
Online resources can be confusing.
For a struggling math student, the infinite number of free tutorial videos and help sites is overwhelming. The default for a confused mind is to try and memorize, but memorization is a crutch that can impede true understanding.
Disability labels can hold a student back.
Educators and parents regularly default to labels to explain the struggle of children and in doing so, discount the probability of success. MathCodes Coaching has succeeded with many diagnoses including autism, adhd, dyslexia and discalculia.
