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.
See what people say about Mathnasium
"Diego is an 11-year-old-boy who, not unlike most boys his age, did not like math. Due to circumstances beyond his control, he did not attend grade school in most of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade and as a result of lost opportunity, was not familiar with what was being taught in 5th grade. After attempting another math tutoring program that did not offer one-on-one instruction, his frustration grew and he resented even the idea of learning math.
Mathnasium has helped Diego overcome his fear of math. He has developed a daily routine after school, has a positive relationship with his tutors, and looks forward to the games and puzzles after his sessions, along with the prizes he can win when he saves up his points. He has also demonstrated the ability to do 5th grade math, and has improved his math scores by at least 30% and in some areas 50%. He now actually enjoys math as one of his favorite subjects in school. We are very grateful for Mathnasium and the unique way they approach learning with our child."

"Last year we were pulling our hair out trying to get the girls to finish their math homework. This year we started Mathnasium
in August and they have been SO EXCITED about getting there and working on their math sheets we know it's going to be a whole new attitude. They have so much more confidence ."- Jennifer S.
"Under your program Sasha has made amazing strides in her math. Her confidence has soared and her grades/test scores have improved. Not only did it help Sasha but our whole family as we no longer had the battles of getting her to do math work. The teachers at Mathnasium were a pleasure as well. Thank you again for this wonderful service your program provides."
