The best way to understand if Mathnasium is the right fit for your child is to take advantage of our No-Risk Assessment process. There is no risk for the assessment, because there is only a fee for it if you enroll your child in a Mathnasium program.
Our comprehensive three-part assessment process will provide you with incredibly valuable information on your child’s current standing in math.
Part 1 – A thorough diagnostic assessment of your child’s math skills is performed by a highly qualified member of our team.
Part 2 – Our Educational Director evaluates your child’s results and provides you with a detailed email summary of our findings.
Part 3 – An Assessment Results Conference takes place between you and our Educational Director to help you gain a clearer understanding of your child's results and how Mathnasium can propel your child forward.
A Mathnasium No-Risk Assessment will help you and your child get a sense of who we are, what we do, and how we can help without having to make an upfront financial commitment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can my child really become a natural mathematical thinker?
To become great at things like sports, music, and art, you need to be born with natural ability. What does it feel like to be "a natural" at something? It's empowering. It develops self-confidence. It makes you feel special.
It's commonly believed that you need to be born "a natural" to become great at math. But at Mathnasium, we believe that virtually any child can become great at math. For many kids, math is something that doesn't come naturally, but they can be taught to think in the ways that the naturals do. When it comes to math, your child can feel empowered, self-confident, and special.
When you learn to think like a natural... you can become one!
How can Mathnasium change the ways in which my child thinks?
We teach our students to use efficient and reliable “schema”– organized ways of thinking – that are innate to the mathematically gifted among us. Mathnasium instructors deliver excellent instruction that is driven by our top-notch curriculum materials. These materials are carefully selected for students to encounter when the appropriate prerequisite knowledge is in place. Through this process, our students develop strong mental math and written computational skills, along with the reasoning ability to know which skills serve them best in any given situation.
Why is Mathnasium better for my child than an independent private tutor?
Mathnasium is structured as a learning center rather than a tutorial service. While a tutor helps students get through “tonight’s homework,” our primary role as a learning center is to uncover and directly address gaps in students’ knowledge that are the underlying causes of their current difficulties in school. Since math is a cumulative subject, it is extremely important to make sure that students have mastery of prerequisite knowledge from previous grades if they are going to have success in their current grade and beyond.
Do students truly enjoy coming to Mathnasium?
Mathnasium students enjoy attending their sessions, and parents frequently ask us to explain what we are doing to make that happen! While there are many contributing factors, the primary reason is that Mathnasium students are significantly gaining self-confidence due to their improving math abilities. Our students often feel relieved that math really can make sense, and they feel empowered to reach new heights that never before seemed possible.
