A Note on Our Instructors
All of our instructors are specially trained to work with children at their level and to teach math in a way that makes sense to them. Our instructors must pass a mathematics competency test to demonstrate proficiency in math, as well as complete an evaluation day to gauge their ability to work directly with our children, all before being hired. In addition, our instructors are continually learning, because here at Mathnasium we believe there is always room for improvement, and we know you want the best for your children.
