"I used Math Wiz and English Wiz to consolidate the work that I had learnt. It was really good for filling in the blanks which I hadn't understood before – because the program explained in a different way, which I could understand better. The program was really helpful for finding clear explanations about the things we needed to know, instead of having to read through the textbook to try and find the relevant bits."
"For each subject, after a topic was completed in class, I would use the program to build and deepen my understanding of each topic. The multiple choice questions reinforced the core concepts and I found the theory at the start of each topic to be extremely beneficial towards my studies since it outlined simply what I needed to have a grasp of."
"Math Wiz and English Wiz was a help because it allowed for the practice of coursework in a way that enabled the identification of weak areas of knowledge and the strengthening of those areas. It also gave another angle at which to view the information studied and hence improve explanations when answering questions."
"Not only were there heaps of exam type examples, but also the program offered step-by-step solutions. It allowed me to constantly test myself and keep a track of my improvement."
Gerard, Grade 8
"When I find out what we are doing next, i.e. Pythagoras, I go on the Math Wiz Program and do the Pythagoras lessons so that I have an understanding before learning it in class. And before a test, I use it to revise. I recommend the program to people of all ages and think it would help many people."
Simran, Grade 5
"I now feel more confident with Math. I enjoy using the program & like seeing the Gold Bricks that show that I understand it. I am very excited because I received a higher grade for Math on my report card. Math is now my favourite subject."
Ebony, Grade 5
"Math Wiz is really exciting, it never gets boring because you can follow what you’re doing at school and sometimes you can even skip ahead a bit and so when you get to learning that at school you already know it."
Ingrid, Dental Health
"The Math Wiz and English Wiz programs assisted me with school and were easy to use. I found that what I had learned at school was reinforced with the lessons in the program when I got back home. It allows you to review any key concepts at home so you can be sure you understand them. I liked the fact that it allowed me to prepare for exams. It made me feel confident in that I felt I covered every aspect of the course."
Claudia, Grade 7
"I like Math Wiz because it is fun and interesting. It is VERY, VERY helpful and improves my work. I like the repeats with different questions that help me get better marks. I also like that I can check the answers by myself."
Joseph, 7 year-old home-schooler
"It is really good – it has helped me with add and carry and borrow and subtracts, and it’s helped me with my spelling. Really great!"
Ramanpreet, Grade 2
"I love using this program because it is a lot of fun and I can be the smartest in the class. It is very easy to use and I can learn the lesson in 15 minutes. I know the lessons before going to class so the teacher makes me help other kids, which makes me feel very smart!"
Tim, Grade 8
"Makes me better at math because it helps me study for tests."
Nada, Academic Scholarship
"After using Math Wiz and English Wiz at home for several years, I have been able to learn and receive extra assistance without the worry of seeking this from elsewhere, and still be within the comfort of my home. Math Wiz and English Wiz has helped me receive skills which have been beneficial to me and has given me added value, providing me with knowledge to improve my academic ability which in turn has assisted me to be awarded one of the school's academic scholarship."
Nuria, Grade 9
"I couldn't really understand what my (school) teacher was explaining to me, but this program is really helping me and I'm learning more and building my confidence in Math. I was excited because in my math exam I got a really good score. So in the future I will be learning from this program and i'll try to get good scores like I did in my math exam."
Richard, Father of 6-year-old Olivia
"Olivia has been using Math Wiz and English Wiz for five months now and she absolutely loves it. She is going in to grade one this year and is already doing grade three math and reading grade two books. Not only has it improved her numeracy and literacy, it has grown her computer skills. Overall we were extremely pleased with the Math Wiz and English Wiz purchased; all expectations have been met, actually exceeded. Thank you once again."
Leena Sheth, School Teacher
"On a personal level and as a teacher who genuinely loves math, I have no hesitation in recommending Math Wiz to anyone who is looking for a comprehensive and extensive math programme for school children to improve their math skills, understanding of key concepts as well as boosting their confidence and self-esteem."

Jane, Parent of Grade 9 student
"I enrolled in the Math and English Wiz Programs for my daughter Robyn who was then 15 years of age doing Grade 9. Robyn was a struggling student in both Math and English. Robyn started using the programs immediately and managed to pass her first math test in two years! She came from a failing 12% from the previous math test to a passing 51% on her subsequent math test."
Tony, Father of 2 children
"Our children are grades 6 and 7 and have been using Math Wiz and English Wiz for about six to seven months now. We encouraged them to use the program four to five times per week and we have noticed tremendous improvement in their school work and assignment grades.
They are just enjoying the program and growing more and more confident in their work and motivated to keep going at it. They are excited to be able to work ahead in their lessons and review the current lesson taught in class.
In addition to the direct benefit to the children, the program has reduced the countless hours that were spent helping however we can with their school work. We can now monitor their progress and activity through the parental report on the program.
I would strongly recommend this program for all children in school and assure them that they will noticeably benefit from it. "
Mark and Lucy, Parents
"We bought the software for our daughter to help her with her studies. We were very surprised at how well she used the software and the amount of help it gave her. It seemed to be easy to use, which was very important and the progress reports at the end of each topic allowed her to identify her weaknesses and strengths. We would strongly recommend this software to any student who wants an advantage in their studies."
Denise and Paul, Parents
"As a parent of teenage children who have benefited from using the program, we wish to thank you. Having only had the program for 8 months, the children have improved out of sight. Both our younger children are working at a year level above their chronological age - due in no small part to using the program. I am also a school teacher and can readily identify the educational strategies the program is based on. It's a 'learning tool' not just a computer-based program. I believe it is well worth the price paid. "
Dr Janet Hall, Clinical Psychologist
"A lot of children start off school just as smart as any other but for some reason their readiness isn’t available for them to learn something that might be a math series or some phonics or some reading and then they never get to catch up. They’re always feeling that they’re not good enough. They’re always feeling that the other kids are smarter than them and they need some special help... Math Wiz and English Wiz can give parents a great sense of direction and a sense of structured involvement, which will give them great satisfaction."
George Moran, School Principal
"I am most impressed that, using the program, the students have successfully learnt difficult concepts without the 'hard work' which is generally associated with learning math through conventional methods. They feel that they are succeeding and success breeds success."
Dr Peter Shephard, Leading Authority
on the Psychology of Learning
"You can learn at your own pace; and then it's not like when a teacher asks you a question, you get it wrong, then you get embarrassed. Here, the computer asks you and doesn't judge you. If you get it wrong, you just simply go back, learn a bit more progressively; so, it's a very safe way of learning, and yet it’s fun at the same time. It's interactive."
Peter Hurst, Teacher and Math Coordinator
"The increase in confidence was quite remarkable. In fact, kids that had no confidence had started contributing in the classroom. They were particularly proud to show that they had grasped some concepts which the 'smarter' kids were finding difficult! Symmetry was one such example."
