Welcome to Mathnasium of Barrington

Hello. I'm Vanessa Mayster, Center Director of Mathnasium of Barrington, your neighborhood math-only learning center. We help kids in grades Pre-K - 12 and Adults understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them.


When math makes sense, kids leap way ahead – whether they started out far behind or already ahead in math. Our formula for teaching kids math, the Mathnasium Method™ has transformed the way kids learn math for over a decade across 800+ centers in the US and Canada:

  • We know how to teach your child math.
    Our specially trained math instructors will teach your child how to understand math in an individual setting – our unique approach enables us to effectively explain math concepts and lend a helping hand to every student. Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn!

  • We pinpoint your child’s learning needs, meet them where they are, and take them where they need to go.
    Mathnasium instructors use our unique assessment process to determine (with great accuracy) exactly what each child knows and what they need to learn. Next, we design a customized learning plan for teaching the concepts the student needs to master. It doesn’t stop there – our encouraging instructors continually check progress along the way to make sure kids truly understand and retain the concepts we’ve taught. The results are transformative – kids will see measurable changes in attitude, confidence, and school progress.

  • We will help your child overcome homework frustration.
    Our instructors will also set aside time to provide homework help. We help kids understand the homework assignment so they feel better prepared to complete the work at home – underscoring their understanding of concepts and transforming homework frustration into a welcome challenge.

About Our Center

We have been tutoring students and adults in Barrington and the surrounding communities since 2011. Our mission is to teach math in the way that makes sense to kids; to replace frustration with confidence, and boredom with excitement!

Mathnasium came about because we saw a growing need to provide students with the skills they need to succeed, not only in math, but in life itself. Our school year and summer math programs help give kids the critical thinking and problem solving skills they need to be successful in the fields of the future.

Our center is located near the intersection of Northwest Hwy and Lake Cook. Call us today at (847) 277-2950 to find out more about us and see how we can help!
