A Numeric Coach Testimonial
Here’s what one of our coaches from Durban has to say about her experience:
“Before Numeric I never thought or imagined that integrating fun and Mathematics would actually work for the learners and most importantly boost their marks which in turn boosts them academically and also their confidence is uplifted tremendously.Phumelele Nyathikazi
Numeric has helped equip me as a future teacher. Being a part of Numeric has helped promote my critical thinking skills, communication skills as I have to level with learners about issues in the class and even outside the class that could be a problem to their Numeric work or even their actual school work I have had to exercise patience as I need not forget that these learners are teenagers and so their feelings are all over the place. I’ve learnt to have a personable approach with my grade 7 learners and because of that, trust is built and the learning environment is always conducive.”
