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.

"Mathnasium has really helped me a lot with my grades and confidence. I really like the hole punch system. It keeps me motivated to do more work. When I walk in the instructors always smile and give me a warm welcome. They know every student's name and it's really cool!"
“Shelby’s second grade teacher could not believe how much she improved in Math. She even received an “Outstanding Math Skills” award at the end of the year! Thanks Mathnasium!” Christina-Parent of a 2nd grader “Mathnasium of Yorba Linda has changed my daughter, Ashley’s life. She actually is excited to come to math because Melissa and her staff, of knowledgeable instructors, make her feel like her family! Her self-esteem has skyrocketed and I have seen such a tremendous change in her personality. She smiles all the time and Melissa has made Ashley believe in herself and her ability to do math as well as anything that is a challenge. I can’t thank Melissa and her staff enough for all the time they have spent with Ashley. Melissa spends whatever time she needs to help Ashley understand math concepts above and beyond the call of duty.”
“Mathnasium of Yorba Linda provides the best emotional environment for my child in various aspects and/or ways. They have provided a “home” away from one’s own home, in that my son feels secure, comfortable and at ease to be himself around the instructors in the environment provided. They have built a “community” in which I have seen my son grow. For example if Azam [Yorba Linda student] is frustrated with the task at hand he no longer will quit but rather will take a breather by playing a “math game,” thus going back to the work with the focus he needs to accomplish the task; and in turn achieving his goal to better himself in math. I, as a parent, feel that Mathnasium of Yorba Linda has met my child’s needs on various levels; but what has impressed me most is the quality of emotional understanding they provide.”
“In my opinion, I think Mathnasium is an outstanding place to be apart of. The environment there is so welcoming and helpful. Everyday I can come to work knowing it will be another fun day at work. I can honestly say I love my job. All the instructors here are extremely helpful to the students. We help the students improve and be well rounded at math. A student here may be in Algebra but have a difficult time grasping the idea of fractions. We will help the student grasp the idea and improve in Algebra. Even though the teachers at school do not have enough time to help students with ALL TYPES of math; we do!!”
