At the Mfacts Studio, we focus on developing the whole child, after all, we know that the best results will come when each child is feeling confident.
When children feel supported in their maths learning journey they express that confidence in a broader sense, well beyond the maths classroom.
We thrive on seeing student’s self belief grow, as they begin to realise ‘they can’!
We exist to help your child shine!
As a mum, classroom teacher and experienced maths leader Justine saw a need to teach maths and in particular the multiplication facts in a more thorough and meaningful way and set about thinking of effective ways to do so. Whilst embarking on this professional challenge Justine was given a personal challenge of her own - a battle with breast cancer. After 12 months she overcame the illness and was more motivated than ever to support children in their learning journeys.
That led to the co-creation of Mfacts121, a highly regarded online resource for students as well as teachers to follow a systematic approach to effectively learn multiplication. Launched in 2015 with her co-founder Nat Bierman, Justine continued to bring the Mfacts121 approach to life in her regular local Mfacts Tutoring in Bayside, Melbourne. During her sessions Justine realised the profound confidence shift that occurs in children when they truly start to understand maths. A confidence shift that extended well beyond the classroom and into their entire way of being.
This insight led to her latest endeavour: Mfacts Studio, a hub for students, teachers and parents offering 1:1 and small group maths tuition, online learning programs, consulting, specially curated learning resources and a network of child well-being specialists for clients to access services such as mindfulness, resilience coaching and more.
Mfacts Studio is a proud Pink Ribbon Partner, National Breast Cancer Foundation
Mfacts has a mission to deliver programs that move mathematics education to becoming a foundation of life-long confidence, resilience and self efficacy for our participants.
Statistics show that 40% of Year 8 students do not have the skills to progress in their maths learning journey.
We understand that Mathematics is key for many learning and study pathways. All children should be afforded the opportunity to keep their possibilities open. That's why acting at the right time, fostering skills and attitudes in students at a young age and formulating resilience and self-belief can make a huge difference to this statistic.
The Mfacts Difference
Research tells us that the biggest impact on student learning comes from the teacher. That’s at the heart of Mfacts Studio. A teacher who understands the true art of teaching is what can have the biggest effect for your child.
At Mfacts, we take the time to find out where each child is at in their maths learning and use this information to help every child move forward. We understand that it is a combination of mathematics teaching strategies, combined with interpersonal relationships, that will make all the difference.
We have expert knowledge of not only what children need to know, but how to best help them understand it. With the essential foundations in place, watch your child’s confidence and positivity grow! There is no cookie cutter approach here at Mfacts...we find the way to reach each child.
When this is combined with access to our child well-being collaborators and resources, parents have so many resources available to help guide their child to better outcomes.
