About Us

Is it me, or did the Summer fly by?
Parents are looking at more alternatives for school than ever before. 
There are traditional public schools, private schools, and even home schooling.
There are a multitude of curriculums out there.
They have questions, such as, What is the Common Core? Iowa Assessments?
What type of testing will there be? 
There is One Thing that Remains Constant.
Math is sequential. Foundational knowledge is a must to be able to build upon to move onto the next concept. At Mathnasium, we have just recently received an updated, improved curriculum using our same principles with much more clarification embedded into each concept. The reviews, system wide, to this new curriculum have been nothing short of tremendously enthusiastic!! We at Mathnasium LOVE using this new, improved, updated material!

  • What are Parents saying about Mathnasium?

"She is more enthusiastic, more interested in math homework." 
— Jaqueline A , parent

"Cassy is really excited to go to Mathnasium! What did you do?!?"
- Ellen L, parent 


"I first noticed her improvement when her dad and I were discussing a possible upgrade to her cell phone. When we learned the price, I blurted, 'WOW, $117, well we may have to wait on that!' and her immediate response was, 'Mom, if you two split it, that's under $60 a piece, $58.50 to be exact.' I was so impressed by her response... This may seem as just simple math to you, however, my 11-year-old would not have been able to calculate that just a few months prior."

"My daughter absolutely loves your program!"
- Shane P, parent

"More good news is that I just received Weston's report card and he went from 56 and failing math, to an 94 with complete understanding in just 6 month! The grade also included a teacher's comment of 'I'm proud of your child's achievement.  Thank you SO much for your efforts and expertise. You (and the Mathnasium instructors) truly make a difference!"
- Staci P, parent
