Our Results

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.

Children enjoy the Mathnasium experience. Enjoy more math work you ask? How is this possible? The answer is simple. We make their job easier. We build their confidence. We get them and keep them on par or ahead of the rest.

So we asked some of our students to share their experience. In their own words answer the question 'Why do you like coming to Mathnasium?'.


 


Dear Mr. Napoli and Staff at Mathnasium:
As a current 8th grade student and appreciative customer, I would like to deeply extend my thanks to all of you for the assistance you’ve provided for me over the last several months. I was impressed by Mr. Napoli’s ability to assess what I needed to brush up on, and everyone who helped me to re-learn what I had forgotten, teach me new things I had yet to learn, and even provide me many useful tricks and tips. I had about four months to prepare for the vocational school entrance exam, and you utilized it fully. What I would really like to highlight is that you were able to tap into things my Algebra teacher had yet to cover in class. I laugh softly at your bit of foresight, as such things were certainly on the test. While the exam was difficult, I reflect on how I was able to leave, knowing I did the best I could using all that I had been taught. That left my face a shade less of green compared to everyone else. Two days ago, the time had finally arrived. I received my letter in the mail. September 2011 is when I become a freshman at Communications High School in Wall. Approximately 250 people applied to get into a class of about 60. To think that I will be one of them…it makes me elated. I would have never managed this without your patience and ability to demonstrate Math in ways that far surpass my Algebra teacher at school. Once again, I thank you for all that you done, and I hope that you will all continue to enlighten kids and give them the confidence and knowledge needed to succeed that you have given me.....
 
Sincerely, Dana

Dear John:
My daughter has been going to Mathnasium for the past six months. She has always struggled with math, and had problems achieving good grades. We have tried traditional tutors, and after school assistance. It is with great pleasure that I report to you that she received her progress report for her first marking period in middle school, and she has earned an A in Math!! I attribute her improvement to her hard work and your excellent program. She enjoys the time she spends with you and your staff. She has never once complained about attending, even during the summer months. I feel, as well, that the program has directly influenced her attitude about school and more specifically studying, as she is really applying herself in all of her classes. She is doing well in all subjects. I think a great deal of her new confidence is attributable to your program. Thank you!!!.....

Before enrolling in Mathnasium our 10 year old daughter Cate was having a difficult time with Math. She was receiving C's on her exams and report card and was extremely frustrated with math homework. Her confidence level was very low and she was not able to learn any new math skills. Our efforts at home to help were only leading to more frustration and extreme tension at home. We enrolled her in Mathnasium in May of 2010 and immediately we saw an improvement. Cate enjoyed attending her sessions at Mathnasium and began to actually enjoy math. She finished out the school year with a C in math but with a little bit of confidence that she could get better. She attended Mathnasium all summer and upon entering 5th grade had acquired a level of confidence she did not have before. She has continued with Mathnasium and is consistently receiving high 90s and 100s on her math exams, completes her math homework on her own and without frustration and received an A on her report card in math. We are thrilled with the success of the Mathnasium program and would recommend it to anyone who's child is having difficulty with math. Cate has been attending Mathnasium for 6 months and now can confidently say that she enjoys math and is good at it! Thank you and your excellent staff for helping Cate through a difficult time and for helping her to reach her full potential.....

"Our 8th grade daughter is an excellent student, earning straight A's in the local public school system. She really, really wanted to get into Biotech High School. While we felt that her primary education was good, and sufficiently preparing her for high school, we worried about the level of competition for the very few Biotech slots. Knowing that even one or two questions on the entrance exam might make the difference between an accept or decline result, Eliza decided that it was worth it to spend 4 hours a week with John and his staff tutoring and in the test prep course. The staff started off with a full evaluation of Eliza's math, grammar and reading comprehension skills. Then they brushed her up on troublesome concepts, reviewed areas that may have become rusty, and practiced test-taking skills. All the hard work was worth it - she got in to Biotech. We owe John and his staff a huge debt of gratitude for helping Eliza achieve her goal."

Dear John:
I just wanted to share with you something incredible. We have just recently enrolled our daughter into Mathnasium. She has only been a part of your program for a month. We have absolutely seen progress already! Her grades are moving up! She has steadily been increasing from C's to B's! She is THRILLED. Well, that in itself is GREAT. However, the other night before she went to bed, I actually heard her pray that she thanks God for Mathnasium!! It was amazing to hear that a child could be grateful for something like that. This speaks volumes about your program and how LIFE changing it can be. We have seen such a difference in her whole attitude toward herself, and her abilities. We can't thank you enough! Keep up your tireless commitment. It has been a blessing to us, as well as so many other students!.....

Hi John:
I am writing because I thought you should know how pleased we are with Mathnasium’s program. Our son, Shawn, has made such tremendous progress in just a few weeks that we know Mathnasium is going to turn his whole outlook on Math around. Prior to coming to Mathnasium, Shawn was really struggling with math. We tried all of the other commercialized learning centers, however, Shawn hated going to them. Shawn actually looks forward to coming to Mathnasium and we feel that is because he recognizes the enthusiasm and genuine interest that the staff at Mathnuasium shows for his academic success. Shawn’s confidence level with math is so much better now and he is starting to show great improvement in his grades and his work habits. We just wanted to take a few minutes out of our day to thank you and your staff for making Shawn’s experience with math a lot more enjoyable. Many thanks.....

"Thank you so much for helping Carmen realize her dream of becoming a member of the class of 2017 at a Monmouth County Career Academy. The money spent on your course was a tremendously worthwhile investment. “I felt really prepared going into the test. I definitely think the prep class helped me.” That’s what our daughter said when we asked her to weigh in on the class. Thank you again for helping to put our child on the best educational path available."

John:
I wanted to share some great news about Sophie's NJASK score in math. It went up from a 229 (76% correct) in 4th grade to a 278 (93% correct) in 5th grade. This is a testament to the impact of Mathnasium! Thanks to you and to all of her teachers.....
 
Sincerely, Karen S.
