At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centers enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

Feedback From Our La Jolla Families:
P, mother of 3rd grader in Bird Rock: What a great summer! Not only were you able to give M the strategies she needed to wrap up 2nd grade material, she now has a jumpstart for this year! Her confidence makes my heart smile.
M, mother of 7th grader from La Jolla: There was a time I had to drag him here, back when "math" was a bad word. He now willingly hops on his bike and says, "See you in an hour. I'm going to Mathnasium." He is showing the initiative we hoped for by making the subject easier for himself. Thank you!
K, mother of 4th and 6th graders from Torrey Pines area: Thank you for being able to individually address both of my kids. One has always experienced difficulties in math while the other has always excelled. I know when I drop them off that each is getting exactly what they need.
J, father of 10th grader from La Jolla: The honors pathway was a challenge for my daughter. She had always been good at math, but the rate it was being presented was too much. Something she once excelled in became something she struggled in. We wondered if she even belonged on that trajectory. With your support she has time to review the lessons from school and ask the questions she wished she could in class. This little bit of extra attention is all it took to set her up for success.
V, mother of 6th grader in La Jolla: Our daughter's school has implemented 'Common Core' math this year which is causing difficulty among students and educators alike. With 'Mathnasium' our daughter is receiving help to navigate through the problems she and fellow classmates are experiencing. She has improved so greatly!
