con·fi·dence (ˈkän-fə-dence) – having or showing assurance and self-reliance
Children have a very short span of attention and are often easily distracted. Boredom can take over, followed by low self-esteem and lack of confidence, if children are not given opportunities to succeed and be challenged. To build confidence within children here are a few options for parents.
- Understand your child’s disappointments. Reading and math intimidates many children. With proper techniques and guidance their confidence will soar.
- Capitalize on your child’s academic strengths. Start where they are most comfortable and perform with ease.
- Create activities your child enjoys and excels. Involve your child in fun and challenging curricular and non-curricular activities within their talent or interest.

“Math intimidates many children. (Our goal is) to remove the fear and build their confidence and self-esteem. They feel self-confident as they calculate numbers mentally with ease. The affect is reflected in their school work and…the rest of their life,” stated Ashwati Nayar of ALOHA Mind Math in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The same process occurs with the reading curriculum.
Our certified teachers make learning fun. Children work together in small groups, participating in interactive activities specifically designed to stimulate the mind.
Through visualization and other techniques, students start with the current knowledge, gradually progressing towards advancing to solve more complex arithmetic problems mentally within a short time.
In a study of the education system, United States students underperforms in math and science compared to their peers in Asia, according the 2011 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
Our research-based curriculum is designed to develop and engage both sides of the brain in the average or underachieving learners and gifted students. We find that children improve their focus, develop vital learning skills, study, and life skills, and advance their self confidence, and ultimately persevere in the face of adversity to go for their dreams. Discover the genius in your child.
Like a muscle, confidence takes time to build up, but can be deflated or lost quickly. Children generally lose their confidence when they are unsure about something. Their difficulties in school may show as if they are incapable to focus or concentrate. If not dealt with this advances into frustration, disinterest in a particular subject or school, then eventually leading to anger and completely shutting down and putting up a wall. When children battle with their school work, whether its math, reading, and writing, they are essentially looking to adults to provide assistance.
Confidence needs to be strengthened daily in school, critical to children’s success. Our objective is to assist kids feel comfortable with learning reading, math, and writing, build confidence within their class work, and help them acquire vital skills to excel throughout their education and career.
