Is your child struggling in maths? 🔢
.
Here are "My Top 6 Tips to Help Children with Dyscalculia" but these tips help ANY child finding maths tricky!
.
👀 Visuals are A-MAZ-ING!! Many many children process and understand things better through visuals. Images, photos, drawings, looking at objects and things, patterns, colours...anything to get your maths message across in a looky way! Many children with a learning difficulty/difference think in pictures so use them! Our thoughts are pictures not words.
.
💃 Learn by DOING! Anything that is hands on. Use tangible, concrete materials to help explain any maths concept. Cubes and beads for counting for example - anything to get your maths message across in a tangible, touchy way! Get creative! It will work.
.
🥺 Reducing your child's anxiety will help them massively and improve their maths. So don't let them struggle! Extra time isn't a good thing for a dyscalculic pupil...whether they have 3 minutes or 3 hours they'll still find things tough and feel deflated so keep everything short and sweet. Constant praise. Constant reassurance. Remind them that their learning difference is nothing to do with their IQ, intelligence or how clever they are just simply how their brain works and processes numbers.
.
🤯 Reduce the stress they have of trying to remember the maths facts - anything they have to remember in their head just write it down instead e.g. dividing by 3? Write down the 3x table.
.
🔢 Go over and master the basics again and again and again. Your child needs to reeeeally understand the basics first. When a child knows what a number means, they know how many things it represents and this is KEY.
.
🎭 Role play is perfect for abstract concepts like telling the time or learning about money so get acting!

Do you know why we cry when cutting onions?
Has anyone found any weird and wacky ways that prevent the tears?

Why does cutting onions make your eyes water? 😢

Onions are packed with sulfur-rich amino acids (molecules that are the building blocks of proteins). When you cut into the onion, you're also breaking up cells and releasing their contents to meet enzymes, which eventually rearrange into syn-propanethial-S-oxide—now, that would've been an excellent Scrabble word if it wasn't hyphenated. What were scientists thinking?!

This chemical vaporises easily, and it floats up to your eyes, where your brain sends a signal to rinse this irritant vapour away with plenty of tears. 💧

When cutting onions, there are a few tricks you can use to avoid crying like when you watched the first 10 minutes of Disney Pixar's up:

🧅 Pop the onion in the fridge before cutting it, or soak roughly chopped onion in water. Both these tricks slow down the pesky enzymes.

🏊Wear swimming goggles to protect your eyes. We won't judge, we love a bit of PPE.

🌬️ Point a fan in a strategic direction to blow the vapours away from your face.

Great revision tips from Emma!

How has your child been revising for their mock examinations? Did you know that highlighting key words in your notes or a text book is one of the *least effective* methods when it comes to retaining information?

Highlighting is popular with students because it's not too taxing, it feels like you're doing something and it looks like you gain an end result. But the end result is nothing more than your notes or the text book with some colours in it. A student who uses this method alone will retain very little of what they have highlighted in the longterm.

Rather than higlighting key information, your child could try this evidence-based method, recommended by cognitive psychologists. It's very simple and it works like a dream:

1. Read a small amount of the information that they need to retain.
2. Put the book to one side.
3. Try to reproduce that information in note form and in their own words and/or try to explain it to somebody else.
4. Open up the book again and check for errors/make corrections/add in anything that they forgot.
5. Repeat that process regularly.

The key here is that your child will be genuinely thinking about the information that they are trying to learn. Highlighting is a passive process and does not force your brain to engage with the material. The only methods that really work for information retention are ones where your child is forced to (1) think proactively about the material in front of them and (2) retrieve what they can remember about it.

I’ve just come across this acronym today and I thought what a beautiful way to guide you through an emotion.

Even as an adult it’s easy to get caught up and spiral in an emotion so I’ll be saving this picture and using it myself as well as with students.

As I've had some new followers recently, I thought it was time for a new introduction!

Who is SB Tutoring?

🍫I'm Sarah and I have been tutoring for 6.5 years and set up SB Tutoring (previously SBTutoring-Surrey) 5.5 years ago.

🍫Prior to tuition I was a Clinical Physiologist and National Clinical Governance manager for Nuffield Health.

🍫I love learning and I always learn from my students.

🍫As well as enjoying all things Science, I am a massive chocoholic and not a day goes by without me having some (good, bad and ugly!).

🍫I enjoy keeping fit and *aim* to fit in some sort of movement most days of the week. My favourite exercise is a good sweat sess on the cycle trainer or lifting dumbbells (well, I've got to burn off the chocolate somehow!).

🍫My favourite colour is Indigo.

🍫I love playing board games and card games, especially with my children, and one of my all time fave's is UNO.

Here's an off duty picture of me (as a Hufflepuff unicorn) and a more professional looking one ☺️

FULLERENES - Bucky Balls and Nanotubes! GCSE Chemistry Bonding and Structure.

Can you names what properties make them so useful and why?

Carbon is an element that can assume a number of different forms. In nature, for example, it can be found as graphite or diamonds. In 1985, Robert Curl, Harold Kroto and Richard Smalley discovered a brand new form - the fullerene.

Curl, Kroto and Smalley irradiated a surface of graphite with laser pulses so that carbon gas was formed. When the gas condensed, previously unknown structures with 60 and 70 carbon atoms were formed. The most common structure had 60 carbon atoms arranged in a sphere with five and six edges. The structures were called fullerenes in honour of architect Buckminster Fuller, who worked with this geometric shape. The paper 'C60: buckminsterfullerene' was published in Nature on 14 November 1985.

Curl, Kroto and Smalley shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for their discovery of fullerenes."

Local authorities can make informal enquiries on an at least annual basis, if no concerns are known then contact should be brief.
You do NOT EVER have to let them into your home or meet the child, it just isn’t their job to!
Some LAs send forms, others demand a visit, others ask for a report, the good ones ask for a brief update… whatever they ask for it’s up to you how to respond.
We strongly urge responding in writing rather than a visit or phone call, that way you have evidence.
If you’re responding in writing it’s often easier to write a report as you control the info you give them, rather than the forms that often sound like school at home must be followed (which it doesn’t).
Our report template and guide on www.educationalfreedom.org.uk talks you through everything you need to know and the info you need to include.
20 minutes to an hour max, to write no more than 2 sides of A 4 is more than adequate for an annual check in. Don’t go overboard, don’t give more info than is required to demonstrate a suitable education.

I highly recommend Elizabeth Blackburns book ‘The Telomere Effect’!

At each end of our chromosomes lies a protective "cap" called a telomere – its function was discovered by Nobel Prize laureates Elizabeth Blackburn and Jack Szostak.

Blackburn used early DNA-sequencing techniques to show that telomeres were made up of short, repeated pieces of DNA. She and Szostak performed an experiment showing that telomeres from one species, a pond-dwelling single-celled organism called tetrahymena, could protect DNA molecules, or mini-chromosomes, from a very distant organism, yeast (see figure).

As telomere DNA from one organism, tetrahymena, protected chromosomes in an entirely different one, yeast, this demonstrated the existence of a previously unrecognised fundamental mechanism. Later on, it became evident that telomere DNA with its characteristic sequence is present in most plants and animals, from amoeba to humans.

Elizabeth Blackburn and Jack Szostak were the first to show that the unique DNA sequence contained in the telomeres serves to protect the chromosomes. They were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009 alongside Carol Greider.

A day in the life of a maths and science tutor; one hour you are teaching months of the year KS1/2, next you're teaching biochemistry for A level Biology. I've also had rearranging formula in between.

When a student is having a bad day and finding hard to regulate, now is not the time for me to push them.

One of my students today was having a hard time with energy levels (too high), agitation and ability to focus. We took a step back from the more challenging Math's, and worked on something much more achievable, with colouring to calm the senses. Dough was on hand to also fiddle with, and movement breaks integrated.

By the end of our session, this was the result, which was a win, considering where he started from. I left this students house knowing he was less stressed, had normal regulated breathing, and he had worked on his division skills. 🙂
