Of course you can tutor her yourself.

There are lots of very good teachers on the primary board, you just ask them for advice smile

So what do you want to teach her?

To answer that you need to know where she is now and what she needs to learn next.....

Then you need to decide how to teach her.

Luckily she reads well, that helps a lot.

How old is your dd?

Are you talking about supplementing school or Home Educating?

Then yes you can give huge support.

I HE one of my child as he is severely language disordered and not thriving at school (understatement), I have 4 other children in school.

We haven't been doing it long but if you have an iPad there are 2 apps I find good "Intro to Maths" by Montessorium and Primary Maths. Both will firm up understanding to year 2 level ish. I would have a good look at the Montessori Maths equipment at Absorbent Minds, you don't need to buy it, most can be made, but it is brilliant for getting ideas across and practicing in avert visual way.

The primary Maths app is particularly good for seeing where you are IYKWIM. It's this one but I don't know how to link to an app!

I guess what I'm saying is firm up the early stuff first, then focus on later primary level.
