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.

"We brought our son to Mathnasium last summer for the summer session. From the very first meeting with his instructor, our son "had a good feeling" about the school. We signed him up for a year, and what a great and different experience that was so far! We like everything at Mathnasium: from the very friendly atmosphere and helpful staff to patient and knowledgeable instructors. They are very intelligent, and have such a vast knowledge of the subject. Our son was very impressed; his attitude about Math changed and he enjoys going to Mathnasium."
"We have tried 6 or 7 math programs out there over a few year. My kids (5th and 7th grade) love Mathnasium the most. They are both ahead in math, yet they are unassuming, you wouldn't expect how bright they are in math."
"Our 7 year old has been a Mathnasium student for the past 2 years. Mathnasium has given him an environment where he can learn and practice math skills in a fun and rewarding way. We find that his math skills are ahead of his peers and most importantly, Mathnasium has boosted his confidence tremendously, which motivates him to continue learning."
“Sarah has really loved her experience at Mathnasium. She is always excited to go, and her enthusiasm for math has really exploded. She loves the teachers she works with and her math skills have improved tremendously. Thank you!”
"Although we considered sending our son Evan to the Russian Math School, we found Mathnasium to be a better fit --- less rigid and more individualized, with a clear, user-friendly approach to learning. Under the guidance of Mathnasium, Evan has become a stellar math student. He happily works with Yonatan each week, and shows confidence and enthusiasm for the subject at school. Whether the session introduces new concepts, or strengthens skills that he already knows, it's been a perfect, customized fit that has been stimulating, supportive and challenging. I highly recommend Mathnasium to everyone. "
"We are so pleased with Riley's report card. Math used to be his weakest subject, now it's one of his strongest. Thanks to you and your team, you've really turned her around."
"Signing my son up at Mathnasium is one of the best things we've ever done for his education. He looks forward to the lessons all week. He loves his homework. In fact, I caught myself in a parenting moment the other day almost saying "if you don't do your chores I won't let you go to Mathnasium this week." Then I realized how lucky I was. Thanks for the great motivation and math skills."
"I can't believe how fast Drew's time went at Mathnasium! It's been extremely valuable for him, especially identifying the areas that he was deficient in and getting him proficient in those areas."
"Adrian's confidence in math has really improved over the last few months. The instructors have been great (younger) male role models for Adrian to look up to. I've been impressed with both of them - really great guys who are patient, easy going, friendly, and academically so strong."
"My daughter said she learned much more in her few sessions with Glen than she did all semester long at school."
"No question Lydia is enjoying it and has helped her confidence in math greatly. She really enjoys your company too by the way. We also had a conference with her teacher at Mason Rice and got some extremely positive feedback on her recent successes, so it's working for sure."
"I brought Tze here because he found math at school too easy. Because Tze can work on more challenging material here, it has kept his enthusiasm up."
"It's been a huge difference. Chris was really struggling with math when I first brought him here. He just brought home his report card with an A in Math! And he actually likes Math now, he loves coming here."
"Thanks again for all you've done to help James achieve his goal of getting a 700 on the Math SAT before he turned 13. When we first started I knew that we were handing you a lofty goal, but you really came through for us. Thanks!"
"We just had a conference with Lance's teacher. She asked us if Lance was getting math help outside school because she noticed a huge difference in his math skills. I told them Lance goes to Mathnasium twice a week after school. She said Lance has improved a lot in the last few months."
"Mathnasium is the place to go. You get gumballs if you get the quiz question right. Jillian makes it really fun. It makes math easier at school. You get to have game time right before you leave. I love Mathnasium."
