At 10ticks we like to reward hard work and motivate both students and parents to boost their maths skills. This is why we run regular competitions in collaboration with our partners which include some of the UK’s most exciting attractions. The competitions will be announced in our monthly newsletter as well as on our social media sites Facebook and Twitter. So make sure you keep an eye out so you don’t miss your chance to win some great prizes.
Why do we have competitions? Positive reinforcement is really important when it comes to education and rewarding hard work can make a big difference. That is why we have a built in merit system which rewards students when they have done well. This builds up their confidence and self-esteem allowing them to go from strength to strength. Once a student earns enough merits they can then unlock a certificate which they can then print out and put up somewhere pride of place. This gives them something to work towards and gives them a sense of achievement when they have reached their goals.

The winner of this competition was Tracy Stafford for sending us the review of the 10ticks Home Learning System Below.
"My daughter, who is 10, was bullied at school, which left her an emotional
wreck. She was 6 when it started and I eventually pulled her out from school
6 months later. We were both let down big time by the education system, so I
created my own teaching system. This would not of been possible without the
fantastic service provided by 10Ticks. I am not a teacher and the help of
this system made teaching maths possible. I will continue to use 10Ticks
throughout her education. It is like having a private tutor on call 24\7,
who can make learning easy, fun and unforgettable.
Well done 10Ticks, don't change."
We are excited to be working with one of the UK’s biggest and best tourist attractions the Eden Project.
