Ho Math and Chess 

At Ho Math and Chess, Math is fun.

Dear Parents and students:

My name is Frank Ho, founder of  Ho Math and Chess Learning Centre. As a parent myself, I understand just how frustrating it is to try to find a good learning centre Ho Math and Chess. Click HERE to learn how Ho Math and Chess got started. I hope the following questions that are frequently asked by our parents could help you choose a good learning centre.

 How to select a good learning centre?

Allow me to present my view on how to pick a good learning centre. It is important that you visit the centre yourself to see how it operates and observe if the children are happy in the centre, that is probably why the referral is such an important factor in choosing a good learning centre. 

What is the philosophy of the learning centre? If the learning centre's philosophy is simply to drill student's computation skills and yet you are looking for a place where it would also teach problem solving skills then you probably would know the drill-style learning centre is not exactly what you want. How can you tell if the centre in deed has a teaching philosophy? It is not what the owner tells you counts, the material tells all. The other compelling evidence is if the owner could tell you how the learning centre got started in the first place? Read the story on how Ho Math and Chess got started by clicking HERE.

If you visited the centre and liked the teaching goal and philosophy then you should ask the class size, teacher's qualifications, and teaching method etc.   A good learning centre should be able to help your children on school work and should know what is being taught at school and offer individual help to each student. 

At Ho Math and Chess we strive to fit ourselves into the above picture, so please visit or call us before you make a decision on where to go.
