**Learning fractions addition and subtraction visually is a great way to secure fractions numeracy **

Fractions lend themselves to be taught online very well, enabling both tutor and tutee to colour in boxes, rub them out, add them up and simplify the answers.

Below is a screenshot from a recent tutorial I had with a Y3 child who has just begun to learn about fractions.

It is great to see a child suddenly understand that four eighths is the same as a half.

Often a couple of fractions tutorials BEFORE a child starts to learn fractions at school gives them a HUGE advantage in understanding the basics which will enable them to not only keep up with the class, but often to lead the class and the homework.
