UKS and Whizz Education team up to provide the online interactive maths tutor


UKS, the Middle East’s leading learning solutions enabler, announces it's partnership with Whizz Education, the award-winning education company in the UK, to provide Maths-Whizz®, The UK's leading online Maths Tutor for 4 to 13 year olds.



[ClickPress, Mon Oct 08 2007] Maths-Whizz®, the online interactive maths tutor, is the most interesting and exciting way for any child to learn. The colourful and dynamic interactive software has been invented to act just like a human tutor, offering one-on-one learning that reacts to the child’s individual learning needs in guiding them through lessons. Parents get their own private login to access a range of reports showing their child’s measurable progress. Maths-Whizz’s personalised approach and positive attitude helps your child release his or her maths potential.

Maths-Whizz® covers the complete UK National Curriculum in mathematics and is in the process of covering the American Curriculum. Teacher demonstration sections give children the step-by-step explanation they need; animated interactive exercises capture the imagination of students, providing helpful reminders when questions are answered incorrectly; and printable exam-style worksheets aid comprehension.

"Providing proven and effective solutions to enhance the level of math education in the UAE and the region has been a paramount concern at UKS. The challenge was to put together a solution that does not only answer to the needs of the students in terms of ease of use, simplicity of presentation and clarity in explanation, but also to the needs of parents and educators in being able to track students’ performance, identify gaps and measure improvement. UKS found in Whizz Education the ideal partner to address such concerns and to provide an online math tutoring service that really delivers quality math education efficiently and effectively." said Mr. Fadi Abdul Khalek, CEO of UKS

Maths-Whizz Teachers’ Resource is already established in over 3000 schools and won a coveted BETT award in 2006 from leading teachers’ organisation BECTA. In a recent schools study using Ofsted data Maths-Whizz was shown to increase maths pass rates by 18%.

"Whizz is delighted to be working with UKS as we are companies which share a common vision. UKS are highly committed partners, who have a comprehensive and focused approach backed by exceptional educational expertise ultimately benefiting our customers." Commented Mr. Richard Marett, CEO of Whizz Education
