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.

Hear What Parents Say About Mathnasium of Glendora
N.C. April 4, 2018
This is the second time my daughter returns in three years. Bon is a savvy, mathematician himself willing to work with parents who are interested providing math support for their children. His math assistants are kind and extremely helpful. I'm also thankful for Bon's way of creating incentives that keep my daughter eager to return for more learning. I wish other Mathnasiums would learn from you Bon!

My son has learned so much from Mathansium since we have enrolled him last year. He is currently in 7th grade but has advanced so quickly that he is now way above 7th grade math. He seemed to be more motivated and enjoys learning math much more than before. We have tried Kumon, private tutors and other math tutoring organizations in the past, but by far Mathansium works best for my son.

My son has only gone for a month but it is amazing how much he enjoys attending. I have seen some improvement although we still have a way to go but the staff all are great and patient.
First to all, Bon is a wonderful person. The people that work there are very nice to the kids. In terms of the work the kids do correlate with the work at school. My kids are very happy.
Mathnasium is the best! My daughter is in 6th grade and.she loves going. The math helpers are very patient and encouraging. She has been going to Mathnasium since September and now gets A's on most of her tests. I would highly recommend.

The program is so great. I believe my kid needs to do math works everyday. It is so hard to do it inside house, because she thinks it is not necessary. But once I took her to the place she needs to work on it, she has no choice. Providing the speical place and time is important for kids because they understand it is time to start work on it. I like this program, because I can ask my kid of math work at least 5 times a week. Keep activating her brain during summer break will help for coming school year. This program is little expensive, but it is worth for my kid. Thank you.

Y.C. June 12, 2017
My daughter had a C in math when she started going to Mathnasium. In a month, her grade had improved to a B. She now has an A and understands everything in her math class. Like we were told when she started, what she would get out of her tutoring depended on how often she attended her tutoring lessons. We made it a point to be at Mathnasium almost every day and the results gave spoken for themselves. I'm very happy with my daughter's improvement in math and I know she's a lot more confident in her work now.

I couldn't be more pleased with Mathnasium. They have excellent tutors and my teenage son has learned an abundant amount of math skills. My son is now in honors geometry for his freshment year.

Mathnasium of Glendora is an excellent choice for math tutoring! My kids get great instruction from knowledgeable tutors who spend time individually with them to answer their questions and help them understand even higher level math concepts. I love that they can come as often as they need and the environment is friendly, comfortable and quiet. Mathnasium is a great value as my 10th grader's test scores have skyrocketed to 100% on nearly every closed book test in Algebra 2 and my 8th grader has gained greater focus and motivation to complete his Algebra 1 math assignments in the two months they have been attending Mathnasium.
L.V. April 1, 2017

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do children struggle with math?
Have you ever watched a foreign film without subtitles? You can usually get a good idea of what is going on, but do you really understand the point of the movie? If a student is missing key foundational math skills, it makes it very difficult to keep up in class. They feel confused and frustrated...much the same way you felt while watching that movie and not understanding the language.
Most schools treat kids the same because it is assumed that all kids learn the same way and at the same rate. The teachers are expected to cover vast amounts of material in a short period of time. If your child doesn't get a chance to master a skill for whatever reason – that's too bad. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule". As a result, we see many kids fall behind in math.
What happens next? The class moves on! Here come multiplication facts, fractions, percentages, decimals, mixed numbers, exponents, ratios, x=?, divisibility rules, algebra, geometry, equations. It never slows down so your child can catch up! They feel overwhelmed, embarrassed, and all alone! They begin to expect and accept failure as the "new normal" and think "I'm just not good in math!" They lose all confidence in themselves and all of their other grades begin to suffer.
Is it any wonder why you have to fight with them to do their homework? With many kids, it is easier for them to fight you and not do the work than to put the effort into it only to see failure again. After a while, it just doesn't seem worth the effort for them.
How is Mathnasium different?
Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. We give them both a written and oral assessment so that we can get a deep understanding of not only what they know, but how they think! We sit down with them, put them at ease, and give them an assessment that doesn't feel too easy or too hard. Most importantly, we find out HOW THEY LEARN! Then we build their trust by giving them a few ideas and strategies that they can use immediately. We then build a customized learning plan that targets skill gaps and quickly shows them success. In many cases “success” in math is something they have been craving!
Why is confidence in math important?
It's not just important: It's critical! Kids need to see that they can do the work so that they can feel confident! This fresh, new confidence will spill over to many other areas of your child's life. At this point you will start to see peace at home! You won't be having to fight with them to do homework. Not only will they have the confidence and the skills to attack it but they'll start bringing home better grades from school. How do we know this? Because we have seen it over and over again with hundreds of students!
