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.

"Every parent wants the best for their child. From a young age we want only the healthiest and freshest food and when the time comes for school, we look for only the best school in the best neighborhood. Now imagine you have your child in the best school - in my case private school and you are paying thousands per year and your child just can't grasp some math concepts. We were at our wits end, so what do we do? Obviously, the most logical choice is to teach them yourself, Right? My husband said - I will teach her and why not, He is an engineer and knows his math, but that only ended up with him getting frustrated and the math homework lasting for hours every night - almost ruining the precious parent/ child relationship. That was when I realized we needed some serious help. I needed a place that could get me results! That's when I found Ravi at Mathnasium. He explained the curriculum in detail and reassured me that it would work. We started the program the start of summer and now it is almost the end of summer and she almost has mastered all of the concepts that she had trouble with initially. My husband was so impressed with the results, that he also had me enroll my 2 other children. My son who never had any issues with math is already a grade level above his actual math level and my youngest who I never thought would get math is making great strides. Most importantly they all love Mathnasium. If we ever skip a class due to some activity they all get sad and make me promise to take them the next day..." Thanks Ravi!

"My 6th grader had been struggling in math for 3 years. We tried many options, private tutors, additional math classes, after school math programs etc.None of them identified & addressed the specific underlying weaknesses in math that my child was experiencing. We enrolled at Mathnasium where patient & caring staff first identified the issues and then customized a program that addressed my child's needs. With routine visits to Mathnasium my child's grades have jumped! We are happy to have found Mathnasium where both my children are now enrolled!" Thanks to Ravi & and the staff!- May Cheung, parent of a 6th & 3rd grader
My daughter is in middle school in Cupertino. Though she was faring quite well in school, I was looking for options to provide her with more stimulation as I see potential in her. I checked a few centers in Cupertino and my search brought me to Mathnasium. Both my daughter and I liked the environment as we stepped in. I particularly liked the structure and the organization that the program had. It gave kids the necessary stimulation without the added pressure. We signed up after the very first meeting with Ravi. It's been a year now and I am very pleased with the progress I have seen in my daughter. She looks forward to going to the center. The teachers are very experienced and helpful and the overall program is fantastic. I am extremely pleased to see that my daughter is getting exposure to higher grade math at the same time she is able to get more efficient in her current school work due to gaining proficiency with the concepts. Overall, I give very high marks to the Mathnasium program and kudos to all the teachers for keeping the kids interested in the program!- Parent of an 8th grader
I recently joined my son (Grade 9) at Mathnasium in Cupertino. The center is excellent in teaching math. Within 2 weeks of joining the center, my son's math test grade rose from 81-84/100 to "100/100". Mathnasium has made our son and us very happy and contented with the dedicated teachers who taught my son fervently. My son also likes the study atmosphere in Mathnasium. They have fantastic resources in math, and he gets to practice numerous math sums before an exam. According to my son, the teachers are very helpful - they are always ready to clear his doubts and teach him whenever he is stuck in a math problem. This is the 1st time I am sending one of my children for tuition (I taught my older 2 sons), and I find it worth the money that I am paying for his tuition at the center.

Just wanted to tell you how happy we are with Mathnasium. This past summer we enrolled our granddaughter in Ravi Pillai's Mathnasium. She was heartbroken as she had received a C in 5th grade math for the last reporting period in June. She spent 5 days a week for six weeks with Ravi relearning and picking up the missed pieces. I'm happy to tell you she just received her report card for this quarter and was thrilled that she got an A+ (98%) in Math. I doubt this would have been possible without the help of Ravi and his tutors. We can't thank you enough for all your insight, guidance, and support for my granddaughter. She's now back on track and made the Honor Roll once again. You all are the BEST!!!!!- Grand Parent of a 5th Grader
Mathnasium has provided us one-on-one and self guided studies with excellent results. With boys currently attending Monta Vista, we wanted to provide them support and additional teaching in their math studies that they would otherwise not receive in the academic setting. This interface has increased their knowledge and understanding to a higher level. The SAT study guide program has also proved to be extremely helpful, such that the understanding and confidence in this placement exam will be recognized. The owner Ravi is extremely professional and flexible. and the instructors are knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend Mathnasium with 5 stars!- Parents of Freshman and Junior students at Monta Vista HS
"I would like to thank the staff of Mathnasium who helped my child with her math needs. Without their support and guidance, completing her math with an A+ grade would have been impossible. Mathnasium is doing a wonderful job of customizing the curriculum to each student's unique needs. Now my child wants to take up even more competitive math and is extremely motivated to go there every day...!"- Parent of 8th Grader
"My 5th grade daughter has been attending Mathnasium for about 9 months because she was starting to fall behind. Her grades have definitely improved.
Recently we had to take a break to take care of other things in the evenings, and within the first week of being off, she started asking when she can go back to Mathnasium; she said that she misses going there and that she couldn't wait to finish the topic she was learning. I definitely liked hearing that because it indicated that she was being motivated and correctly challenged at Mathnasium. She also has been expressing that she feels like she is advancing more, thanks to Mathnasium.
In addition, recently I have been receiving reports about what she is learning and the attitude she takes to learn. This is great because it allows me to see how she's advancing and what she is learning, and they are open to feedback at anytime.
Mathnasium is a great place to learn math. "

"Through the Mathnasium program my child was very well prepared for the math challenge test given by the Cupertino School District. Ravi formatted the study plan to follow the structure of this exam which my middle schooler passed with flying colors. Thank you for your support, Ravi. We couldn't have done it without your help.- Parent of a 6th Grader
Thank you so much for helping my daughter with her math this past summer. She had a lot of anxiety with Math, I'm so pleased that someone recommended you and your team to help. I know that I could not have done this on my own. She is going into the 3rd grade this school year with more confidence in Math with the help of you and your team. Thank you so very much!Connie

Ravi and his staff are exemplary'.- Parents of a 5th Grader
