2nd grader struggling in math

Hello, this is my first post so I'm sorry in advance if it is done incorrectly!

My daughter Sammy is about to finish up 2nd grade and she has been struggling all year with math. I try and help her and she will sit and wait for me to give her the answer, rather than trying to get it right.
My husband and I both work full-time, and the babysitter does not help too much with the homework. I don't know what to do with her, because i don't want her to get behind in math so soon, before it starts to get really difficult.
I have heard of some centers that you can go to after school for extra academic help, but I'm not sure Sammy would want to go some place, nor do I have the time to take her.

Any suggestions of what ya'll do to help your children learn math without spending too much money and time away from home, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
