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.

"Math has always been such a hardship for him. Enrolling him at Mathnasium was the best thing we've ever done. He's able to work at a comfortable pace and not feel rushed. We like it so much we're signing our daughter up!"
"Keeping my children motivated about math has always been a struggle. We needed something out of the classroom to supplement what they were already learning. We enrolled our son and daughter when Mathnasium first opened in August of 2009. After two months, I noticed a substantial improvement in their attitude towards math. Our daughter now loves math. It's her favorite subject. Through Mathnasium's approach, the instructors were able to identify the areas they both needed help on and really concentrate on them. Now my children come home, do their math homework and I check it. They actually want to do their homework and study for tests."
"We tried other similar programs and nothing worked, then we enrolled our daughter at Mathnasium. Her grades went from Ds to Bs in five months as a result of Mathnasium. Her confidence has increased and her attitude about math has changed."
"What really put a smile on my face and teared me up was watching my daughter work with Amy, a college student tutor, on her two math pages she brought home yesterday. She connected with Amy immediately. We were there for 2 hours and she came home beaming and said it only felt like a half an hour. She is showing excitement for math and can't wait to go again."
