I believe silence creates a cycle. With empathic and collaborative therapy, we break the cycle. I help clients feel validated and supported passed anger, shame, and anxiety.

Hi there! Everyone has subjects that they seem to be good at and others that they seem to not be so good at. For me, I am the exact same as you, I am good at English and love English but I find maths much more difficult and it is definitely not close to my standard in English. However, if you find yourself becoming worried about your maths grades then perhaps there is something that you can do? Everyone has different styles of learning and, if you're like me, then your style of learning may depend on the subject. I really struggled to find my learning style in maths and maybe that's what's happened with you too? Have you tried talking to your maths teacher about it, she may have some ideas on what could benefit you most? Or perhaps you have a friend who seems to be really good at maths that could help tutor you? Maybe you simply need to spend more time revising maths? You could try some sample questions from past papers or ask your maths teacher if she has any spare maths worksheets for you to do. Simply talking to your teacher about your worries may reassure you! At the end of the day, we can't be good at everything. The fact that you're good in English is already amazing on its own, you may simply enjoy English more or just find it easier. However, if your maths grades are worrying you to the point you are becoming stressed maybe you could try one of the suggestions I've written above or ask other people how they study maths. Everyone has different strengths and that is okay.

English and maths are two different world. One consist of words, grammar etc... and the other consist of numbers, calculation etc... Maths requires logical thinking whereas English requires critical thinking. It depends on the person who does it. If you are good in English, it also means that you are good in language. And that maths ain't really your thing. Also you do not have to feel bad if you are not good in maths. On the bright side you can learn any language easily with no problems. And you can also analyse things way too easily in real life.
