Why Math is Different from Other Subjects?

Math is a kind of universal language of the world. Math subject is a unique, you have to know previous grade knowledge to continue next grade. Not like other subject; Math is a linear learning process. What is used one day is used the next, and so forth. (In other subject you can learn chapter 2 and not 3 and do OK on 4. In math, you must understand the material in chapter 1 before you go on to chapter 2.).

Finally, in math, each concept is related in some ways to other concepts. Although it seems hard to imagine, there is a mathematical universe in which all the concepts fit together in some way. For example, the study of geometry and algebra can be related. That is why it's important to use different areas of math together to solve problems rather than seeing these areas as totally discrete, or separate.

NallPro mission is to help every student improve their understanding of concepts and problem-solving skills in math and become more successful. NallPro attempt to fix student’s permanent solution all math issue; not just getting good marks only for one time.

what are the Differences Between NallPro and School Math Studies?

Parent must understand reality about your Kids Education!
Teaching Method
  • One to One Attention & No Classroom Intimidation!

  • 1 to 20/30 Students

Curriculum / Syllabus
  • If time permitted, NallPro will finish All.

  • Not even possible with 2 hrs. class per week!

  • 3 Level of Teaching:
    • Level 1: Fill in foundational gaps – Previous Grade’s Basic MATH (Must needed for next levels)

    • Level 2: Understand current concepts – Going with School Works.

    • Level 3: Move ahead in the curriculum – Prepare for the Next Grade Level

  • Please see the "Ontario Ministry of Education Mathematics Curriculum Guidelines."
  • According to my knowledge & previous experience - more than 20 years (At same period of time teach from Grade 1 to University), more than 1,650 Students so many different schools/district.

  • Most of the regular school only finishes 60%-80% of school Curriculum each year.

  • Some mix Grades; not even finished 50% of Curriculum.
Teacher(s) / Experience
  • Officially more than 20 years with NallPro

  • 5 years with Toronto School Board.

  • NallPro teacher teach from Grade 1 to University at same period of time.

  • Even though, I have 3 Engineering Degree/Diploma, so many Certifications and I worked more than 15 well-known Companies with IT experience, but I feel happier to teach Math.
  • Maximum 5 to 10 years - Moved to next Level; none of the teacher has same Level of teaching for long time.

  • School teachers may teach 1 or 2 even 5 Math classes in a regular school years?
Results / Opinion
  • NallPro reveal that Always truth will WIN!

  • Tell about Student(s) to face to face.

  • NallPro not going to lie about your kids (Students) Telling the Truth and making someone Reality (to Realize) is better than, telling a Lie and making someone Fake Happy!

  • Parent must understand reality about your Kids Education! NallPro cannot able to do any magic:[There are No Shortcuts to Success] Anybody can study MATH, only if he/she spends time with focus!
  • If your kid is not disturbing others in the class; you are very good student. It does not mean that you are academically good!

  • Write on the Reports cards, examples, ESL or IEP - No time to read and understand the Teacher’s comment!

  • Please always check your kid’s School Rating. Compare the academic performance of your child's school

Why some student needs to spend more than 50% time for learning MATH?

Math most of the question looking for student's previous cumulative MATH Knowledge! Not like the others Subjects.

Also if student know proper knowledge in MATH, easy to study all others subjects. Practically proved that with many of NallPro previous students and myself.

Note that if student going to study Engineering at University, in Grade 12 he/she has to take 3 MATH subjects out of 6 subjects. Again 50% of study is MATH.

Math is not difficulties to learn; but you must follow the right way to do step by step it takes time. There are No Shortcuts to learn Math.

Why Grade 6, 7 and 8 need fully understand is very important for High School MATH?

In High School Math most of the question looking for student's previous cumulative MATH Knowledge!

Most of the Middle Schools, teach one Topics (Chapter) for every 2 weeks; give Test/Exam, then student fail to recall again, in High School look most of the question cumulative MATH Knowledge. (Maybe you have experience or heard that many Middle Schools students get good marks, but in high school these student drop marks or fail!)

    Ontario Most of the School from Grade 3 to Grade 8 as follows:
    Nearly 40 weeks School, 20 Topics (sections), 16 base on previous, 4 new sections

    Usually at school every 2 weeks teach one Topics (Chapter); school teacher teach previous year first, if all the student are understand, then move to current Level, in that class most of students too weak, cannot move to next Level. So again and again they study only previous year(s) sections.

    Most of the regular school only finishes 60%-80% of school Curriculum each year; because each class has 25 to 30 student and also they already filter out all good ones (Gifted Students, IB Students, IBT Students and AP Students).

    Note: If you are IB/IBT/AP student and your marks less than 80%, not worth to study in these Programme!

NallPro recommends some Student/Parent/Guardian, need more Knowledge in MATH, while in the Middle Schools: They were not listening NallPro at that time. Later they are going Realize about this, but that time is too late!

NallPro not going to lie about your kids (Students)
Telling the Truth and making someone Reality (to Realize) is better than, telling a Lie and making someone Fake Happy!
Mythology and Misconception in the Math Studies: Parent must understand reality about your Kids Education!

There's a lot of mythology and misconception in the Math studies; Unfortunately some parents think, of their kids doing 1,000's of similar question without understand the concept fast with mistakes he/she going best in Math; they look only Quantity not Quality of studies. In which exam or test asks about how many questions or sheets done in the past?

  • In the passed experience, after NallPro' class some parent asked their kid(s); how many sheets did you do today? (Sheets or number of questions are not Studies, understand the concept is Studies).

  • Instead of asking how many sheets did you do today; ask your kid(s), what did you learn today? Do you understand the concept? Etc.

  • In which exam or test asks about how many questions or sheets done in the past?

  • I had a lot of past confirm experience, student who ever doing NallPro’s HW with 100% right, in school all Tests or Exams those get A+. Some NallPro's students even got 100% in Math [see some of Student Report Cards]. These students are not doing 1,000's of similar question.

Some of you still believe that, Big Branded Name, Charge More Money in Big Commercial Building Tutoring Centre are good, they have not check their kids End Result (Gaining knowledge in Math).

Some students called these places as “Easy Tuition”. [Of course Not going with a school’s Curriculum(syllabus) most of the students get same worksheets again and again, so Easy for them to do.]

These places are Franchise Tuition Centers; anyone can run these kinds of centers, if you pay the Franchise fee!
Some of NallPro students have been worked there before, few of still working these places.

I personally prove many students [ Approximately 350 to 400 students, since I started NallPro ] come from these types of places, they studied many years there; But they don’t have any basic Math knowledge, NallPro tested many of them. (How to check your kid’s math knowledge? see below)

About University or Higher studies:

If you are not taking studies as seriously now, forget it about University or Higher studies. You may heard a lot of students go to Universities; do you know how many of them get the Degree? In Ontario University students 60% dropout from 1st year to 2nd year; or change their career plan (Enter into other degree programs rather than leave higher education). Overall, engineering drop out rates are slightly higher than other degree programs. There are 3 main reasons.

    1. If you're cumulative average is less than 60% in 1st year.
    2. If you failed 2 or more course in one semester.
    3. If you failed major course.

Note: To graduate with the four year Honours B.Sc. degree, your cumulative average must be 60.0% or higher.

Causes And Effects:
Engineering program dropout rates depend strongly on how much of a mathematics background the student has. Inability to handle the course load in calculus, statistics or linear algebra is the leading academic cause listed.

Academically Challenged Like Never Before:
Psychological triggers are another cause of students dropping out. For many students in engineering programs, this is the first time they’ve ever been seriously academically challenged. For a straight-A student, failing an exam, or failing a class and having to take it a second time can be a crushing blow to their academic self-confidence, and cause them to re-think their major. Related to both of these factors is the overall workload for an engineering degree. While the standard rule for a college degree program is that each hour of classwork will result in two hours of homework, the ratio for engineering degree programs is closer to four-to-one.

Planning To Succeed In Engineering:
The first thing a student interested in an engineering degree program should do is focus heavily on mathematics and preparing for the degree. Take as many math classes as you can; mathematics is the barrier to success for most first-year engineering students. The second tip is to spend your first two semesters taking a lighter load of classes. It’s better to take your first two semesters of calculus with your general degree requirements classes balancing the load than with your classwork on general engineering course. It’s important to remember most students drop out within their first year due to excessive workload. Be honest with your expectations. The average college student ends up taking an extra year to complete a four year degree, and it’s only by extending the window to six years that 60% graduation rates happen in most cases. For an engineering degree, assume that you’re going to be in for the long haul and doing this on a five years or six years plan, and plan accordingly. This includes factoring in an extra 12 months of financial commitment. While engineering school dropout rates are higher than most, the challenges of an engineering degree can exceed those similar degree programs which for many is what makes an degree in engineering an attractive proposition to begin with.

About Calculator:

NallPro NOT recommend use a Calculator until High School. It’s also good practice for their future study. I have some student in High School they are not allowed to use Calculator any Tests or Exams. I studied University of Ottawa and University Of Toronto; I’m 100% sure that at good Universities in Mathematics; Not allow to use Calculator for any Tests or Exam.

Nowadays also, some High School not allowed use Calculator for any Tests or Exam. Some High School if he/she not uses Calculator for a Test gave the bonus marks.

Honesty is the best policy: Respect Your Education:

If you don’t have good establishment in Math from Grade 1 to 8, to difficult to study High school Math. (Especially students in Grade 6, 7 and 8 needs fully understand MATH very important, for High School MATH. In High School Math most of the question looking for student's previous cumulative MATH Knowledge!) I already went thought some issue with High school’s students, too hard to explain the Math. For example you know one language easy to translate, if you don’t know any language it will take a lot time to study from A, B, C so on… (Your school’s teachers may teach 1 or 2 even 5 Math classes In a years; but NallPro teach from Grade 1 to University Math last 20 years I taught more than 1,650 students)

    Student’s odd mistake #1:
    From grade 1 to 8, if student use a Calculator with NallPro’s homework; what is a point of doing the homework? (NallPro NOT recommend use a Calculator until High School.)

    Student’s odd mistake #2:
    Some of students just do few questions then write a random for the number rest of the questions; then tell their parents did the Homework.

    Student’s strange mistake #3:
    Student says “I did the Homework, but left the homework sheets at my Home!” (Then what is a point of coming to NallPro?)

If you are doing above mistakes #1, #2 or #3 you are doing followings:
  • 1st you are cheating yourself and wasting your time; (By copied answers from Calculator or randomly writing wrong answers, what kind of knowledge you are gaining?)

  • 2nd cheating your parents and wasting their money. (Not only the tuition fee, Gas and most precious their time.)

  • 3rd cheating your teacher and wasting teacher’s time. (NallPro also spend time to do the correction for your wrong answers)

About NallPro's Worksheets and Homework: Why is worth to do?

Help develop your understanding of what was taught in class and provides a foundation for the next lesson. It is important that you complete each sheets with 100% correct answers on time. (NallPro recommend you have to spent 2-4 hrs per week with NallPro's homework)

  • You have one week to do your HW (168 Hours).
  • You can look any Notes or Books with examples.
  • You can get a lot of help from anybody.
  • You can do how many times as you want.
  • You can check the answers are right! (NallPro demonstrate students how to check their answers 100% Accurate)

Tips for Success in Mathematics:

      1. Pay attention in class at school and at NallPro. You're not going to get any better at math if you don't listen or if you don't know what's going on.

      2. Extra notes: Write as many extra notes in your notebook as required to make sure that you understand!

      3. Ask many questions. If you don't understand something, ask the teacher. You're not going to suddenly understand it by staring at the problem. If you don't want to ask a teacher, ask a friend.

      4. Seek math help. Always Available on line, books, etc.

      5. When doing your homework try to re-read your class notes and examples. This helps commit the concepts to long-term memory. Continue to reference your notes and re-read as much as possible to aid in the long term memory development.

      6. Memorize your multiplication tables. This is crucial for mastering arithmetic.

      7. Try to understand what you are doing. Don't just "plug and chug" – think about what you are doing and why!

      8. Be patient. This math stuff may not come to you right away.

      9. You cannot "cram" for math. It is all about understanding the work and then practicing!

      10. Be serious but don't worry to the point of anxiety. Fear alone can force a poor result! Prepare and relax!

Way to success:

Nowadays most of the kid wants only success, without Dedication, without Hard work, without Good habits, without Sacrifice, without some Failure, and without Persistence.

Believe in yourself and you will achieve great success! Only if you spend time to STUDY.

There is only one way to success. It’s called HARD WORK.

Success is dependent on EFFORT!

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam said that "Without your involvement you can’t succeed. With your involvement you can’t fail".

Differences Between Winners and Losers:

Successful people are winners in our society. But what are the factors that make them so different from others? Winners operate in a totally different frame of mind compared to losers and that is why they always got the results that losers dream of. So read on for the list of 15 differences between winners and losers.

Differences Of Winners and Losers
1“When a winner makes a mistake, he/she says” “I was wrong.” “When a loser makes a mistake, he/she says” “It wasn’t my fault.”
2“A winner makes commitments.” “A loser makes promises.”
3“A winner works harder than a loser; and has more time.” “A loser is always “too busy” to do what is necessary.”
4“A winner says “Let’s find out.” “A loser says “Nobody knows.”
5“A winner knows what to fight for and what to compromise on.” “A loser compromise on what he/she shouldn’t, and fights for what isn’t worthwhile fighting about.”
6“A winner shows he/she is sorry by making up for it.” “A loser says “I’m sorry” but dose the same thing the next time.”
7“A winner would rather be admired than liked, although he/she would prefer both.”“A loser would rather be liked than admired and is even willing to pay the price of mild contempt for it.”
8“A winner listens.” “A loser just waits until it’s his turn to talk.”
9“A winner respects those that are superior to him and tries to learn something from them.”“A loser resents those that are superior to him and tries to find chinks in their armour.”
10“A winner takes a big problem and separates it into smaller parts so that it can be more easily manipulated.”“A loser takes a lot of little problems and rolls them together until they are unsolvable.”
11“A winner knows that people will be kind if you give them the chance.”“A loser feels that people will be unkind if you give them the chance.”
12“A winner focuses.”“A loser sprays.”
13“A winner tries never to hurt people and does so only rarely when it serves a higher purpose.”“A loser never wants to hurt people intentionally, but does so all the time without even knowing it.”
14"Winners try different strategies when they are not getting the results they want.""Losers do the same thing over and over again expecting different results."
15"Winners set goals.""Losers lack goals."

Level of Education in Ontario:

Please always check your kids Report card very carefully, not only see their grades, also see their level and class’s median. If your kids get around 70% (or B) 3 times repeatedly; your kids 1 year behind math study level. The following table tell about your kids, where he/she standing? NallPro enjoy teaching all kind of students, such as; Gifted Students, IB Students, IBT Students, AP Students, Academic Students, Applied Students, Private School Students, ESL Students, IEP Students and Special Needs Students.

    Gifted IEP Totally different than above mentioned, IEP!
    An Individual Educational Plan (IEP) is a working document outlining what will be done to meet the needs of a student. ... If a child is identified as gifted by an Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC), an Individual Educational Plan is required by regulation.

    Note: Most of the regular school only finishes 60%-80% of school Curriculum each year; because each class has 25 to 30 student and also they already filter out all good ones (Gifted Students, IB Students, IBT Students and AP Students).

    Note Again: If you are IB/IBT/AP student and your marks less than 80%, not worth to study in these Programme!

Please check your kid’s School Rating (Compare the academic performance of your child's school)

Compare the academic performance of your child's school

How to check your kid’s math knowledge?

The best way to check your kid's Math Knowledge; just print one of the previous EQAO Exam; give him/her to do 1-2 hrs. without any help.

  • For Grade 4 & 5 – Do Grade 3 EQAO.
  • For Grade 7 & 8 – Do Grade 6 EQAO.
  • For Grade 9 & 10 – Do Grade 9 EQAO. (Note: Grade 9 EQAO 80% of the questions from Grade 6, 7 and 8)

If your kid gets 90% or above, your kid ok level. (If your kid get less than 90% you have to take little seriously issue now! because your kid is doing one or two grade less than his/her current level.)

Ontario Ministry of Education Mathematics Curriculum:
If you look very carefully the Ontario Ministry of Education Mathematics Curriculum Guidelines, each school year about 20% new material and 80% previous stuff. Here what I’m try to say, first understand Math then start do some exercises with 100% correct; Math is straightforward.

Nearly 40 weeks School, 20 sections, 16 base on previous, 4 new sections

Other Best way check your kid’s math knowledge.

There are many math contests happening in Ontario each year.

For examples:

  • Waterloo Mathematics Contests
  • Kangaroo math contest and
  • Tamil Academy Math contest, etc.

It takes Sometime: Anybody can study MATH, only if he/she spends time with focus!:

Some parents complain about their kid is very slow to do Math; I answer this question, as long as he/she doing right is good. Because if kids doing fast and make fault going to wrong direction, not going to get the target. Math Studies not a short race, it marathon. Math is like a foreign language. It must be practiced almost every day until you familiar.

Some students (with C and D in ESL/IEP) come to NallPro, without knowing basic Math knowledge 2 or 3 Grades blow their level, and expect to fix all issue (3 to 4 Grades) within 1 or 2 months. How is this even possible? If anyone says to fix this type of issue within 1 to 2 months (2 hrs/week); they are number one dishonesties people. There are No Shortcuts to Success.

The following Student is a one of the greatest Example: There are No Shortcuts to Success

Behind the Successful Results

Nothing is Impossible:

Confidence and hard work are keys to improving your education! It is your responsibility to choose the right way, not the easy way!

Teaching is my passions

I discovered my passion for teaching early in my high school years; when I was in Grade 9, I started teaching Math for Grade 10 Students. When I was studying in at PCI in Toronto, my school math teachers asked me to teach Math; then I worked with Toronto Board of Education from 1987 to 1991. Worked as a Student Tutor teaching Mathematics (Calculus, Functions, Algebra, etc.) Whenever I am free, I spend time improving my teaching (create new class Notes & Worksheets) and devolve NallPro.com. I believe in my self and I am a hard worker. I believe you will succeed if you’re hard working.

Even though, I have 3 Engineering Degree/Diploma, so many Certifications and I worked more than 15 well-known Companies with IT experience, but I feel happier to teach Math.
