Assessment & 4 One-Hour Sessions -- $99

Our full Math assessment will pinpoint what your student knows and what 'gaps' need to be filled. Then, a personalized learning plan is created just for them based off the assessment. During the four sessions we can work on the learning plan for an hour - OR -  30 minutes on the learning plan and 30 minutes on homework.

F A Q

My child already excels in math.  Will Mathnasium address their needs?

Absolutely.  Since Mathnasium is customized to the needs of each individual student, we can help advanced students stay engaged and stimulated by introducing them to more challenging math topics.  More importantly, we can also help your child to develop even stronger numeric fluency and critical thinking skills, which are essential for continued success in math. 

Why do children struggle with math?

Have you ever watched a foreign movie without subtitles? It can be confusing and frustrating because you don't understand the language!  If your child is missing key math skills, this is exactly how they feel in math class!

In school, they 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 –  there is no time to give the necessary time and attention that they need. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule". As a result, we see too 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!". If they lose confidence in themselves we typically see 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.

Will a private one-on-one tutor work?

Unfortunately, in most cases a private tutor is a temporary fix for a long term problem. Private tutors only help children "survive" tonight's homework, but they don't address underlying issues. In most cases, private tutoring is not going to be a meaningful long term solution. Your child deserves to have that long-term impact in their math education!

How is Mathnasium different?

Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. It is 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 use the results to 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!

Does Mathnasium Really Work?

Yes! Quite well, but don't take our word for it - Read our Parent Reviews in the right hand column >>

We get 100's of reviews that are glowing about how students come alive after coming to Mathnasium. Their grades increase and their confidence skyrockets! Take a moment to read what your neighbors have to say about us.

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 our students!

Are you doing one-on-one tutoring?

Another great question! Our instructors are not just average math tutors. We have brilliant, engaging, inspiring math experts that work one on one with your child. They make sure your child understands what to do. Then the instructor steps back and lets your child work independently to give them the time to process this new information without the pressure and stress of being watched. It also prevents a "learned helplessness" where the student feels that they need the instructor sitting in front of them all the time in order to be successful.  [We can't be there for their math tests!]

Our instructors quickly come back after a minute or two to make sure they are doing the problems correctly, give them encouragement, and praise them for their efforts! If the student needs more math help we simply teach the lesson again in a different way without judgment or ridicule until they "get it." This enables your child to become a "confident, independent learner."

Can my child really become a natural mathematical thinker?

To become great at things like sports, music, and art, you need to be born with natural ability. What does it feel like to be "a natural" at something? It's empowering. It develops self-confidence. It makes you feel special. 

It's commonly believed that you need to be born "a natural" to become great at math. But at Mathnasium, we believe that virtually any child can become great at math. For many kids, math is something that doesn't come naturally, but they can be taught to think in the ways that the naturals do. When it comes to math, your child can feel empowered, self-confident, and special.

When you learn to think like a natural... you can become one!

How can Mathnasium change the ways in which my child thinks?

We teach our students to use efficient and reliable “schema”– organized ways of thinking – that are innate to the mathematically gifted among us. Mathnasium instructors deliver excellent instruction that is driven by our top-notch curriculum materials. These materials are carefully selected for students to encounter when the appropriate prerequisite knowledge is in place. Through this process, our students develop strong mental math and written computational skills, along with the reasoning ability to know which skills serve them best in any given situation

Why is Mathnasium better for my child than an independent private tutor?

Mathnasium is structured as a learning center rather than a tutorial service. While a tutor helps students get through “tonight’s homework,” our primary role as a learning center is to uncover and directly address gaps in students’ knowledge that are the underlying causes of their current difficulties in school. Since math is a cumulative subject, it is extremely important to make sure that students have mastery of prerequisite knowledge from previous grades if they are going to have success in their current grade and beyond.

Do students truly enjoy coming to Mathnasium?

Mathnasium students enjoy attending their sessions, and parents frequently ask us to explain what we are doing to make that happen! While there are many contributing factors, the primary reason is that Mathnasium students are significantly gaining self-confidence due to their improving math abilities. Our students often feel relieved that math really can make sense, and they feel empowered to reach new heights that never before seemed possible.
