Our Story

If there's one thing we've learnt over decades of experience teaching math in schools, its that forcing the subject onto a child who isn't excited to learn is not effective. 

Every child has a natural desire for learning, but not everyone learns the same way.

At the heart of LearnersEd is an unwavering dedication to understand how each learner learns and help them make personal connections between their interests and math. 

 
 
 
 

“We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading.

Knowing the contents of a few works of literature is a trivial achievement.

Being inclined to go on reading is a great achievement.”   

― B.F. Skinner

Our Philsophy

Math has long been treated as a dehumanised subject abstracted beyond recognition.

The predominant method of learning math - described as the memorisation and repetition of disjointed technical facts - continues to contribute towards math anxiety at epidemic proportions.

To improve learning outcomes, we adopt a transformative approach.

Math as a Language.

A famous quote by Galileo reads, "The laws of nature are written in the language of mathematics". If treated as a language, then mastery of the subject requires courage, curiosity, and understanding. 

No grand adventure is without struggle. And it is through struggles that critical thinking occurs. By removing the fear of making mistakes, we nurture tenacity and courage.

Failure is a wonderful teacher and improvement a powerful reward. Creating such an environment empowers learners to embrace struggles and foster creative problem solving both in school and life.

Growth Mindset

Stanford University Psychologist Carol Dweck's discovery of fixed and growth mindsets have shaped our understanding of learning and intelligence.

In a growth mindset, the learner believes that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work - where brains and talent are just the starting point. Dweck writes that adopting this view creates a love of learning and a resilience essential for great accomplishment.  

#CelebratingProgress is about propagating growth mindset amongst learners. It entails inspiring learns to believe in themselves and focus on their progress, not just the results.

A Broader Definition of Success

While results are important, the potential of a learner is not defined them. If we take education as an end on its own rather than a means, learners will lose many precious opportunities to improve themselves. 

Regardless of the learners proficiency in math, we match our approach to teaching according to the child's learning style, helping the child to discover and celebrate his/her progress and ultimately achieve their goals. 

Our metrics of success are not just the results, but more importantly, the confidence and progress of our learners.
