  • All visits are 100% drop in! You never have to schedule with us. Back to school? We got this!

  • ACT/SAT coming up this year? We can assess where they are and target the missing pieces long before their test day ever comes.
  • Students earn rewards each visit! If your child isn't motivated by math, they will be!
  • Our instructors are the secret sauce ... pretty much all of us struggled at one pint or another and it's our own less-than-great experiences that drives high doses of empathy to cure those math blues. Add that to the brilliant math brains they had all along and presto!

Summer has flown by and Back to School season is here! This is a great time for new beginnings on the academic front to make this school year GREATER THAN last year! So let's get organized and set priorities. Here is our Back to School checklist to get started.

 

 

 

 

  • Buy school supplies for the new school year. Back to School sales offer many opportunities to show your child how math comes in handy in the real world while picking up some much-needed items. Sit with your child to write a shopping list and plan out a budget, hit the sales, and work with your child to calculate discounts!

  • Finish summer reading assignments. Solid reading comprehension skills are critical to success in all subjects. (Word problems, anyone?)

  • Enroll your student at Mathnasium to stay on track in math and make this school year GREATER THAN last year! We’ll pinpoint your child’s learning needs and create a personalized program designed to meet them where they are and take them where they need to go. We know how to teach your child math in a fun and supportive environment that instills confidence and a positive attitude about the subject. With hard work and diligence, homework frustration may likely become a thing of the past.

  • Print out your activity/class schedule. Then, sit with your child and talk about extracurricular activities that are on the table for this semester so you can plan a regular weekly schedule together. Put it on paper and make it official and stick it on your bulletin board or fridge for easy reference. Of course, make room for visits to Mathnasium to get caught up, get ahead and homework help!

We wish all of our Sparks/Reno families a happy and productive start to the 2018-2019 school year and look forward to helping your family start the school year with confidence and a can-do attitude!

It's that simple, all it takes to make this year GREATER THAN last year is the right list to keep organized.

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 – that's too bad. 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!" They lose all confidence in themselves and 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. We give them 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 then 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!

 

The best way to see if we are a good fit for your child’s needs is to visit our center, meet the instructors and try out our program.

Does Mathnasium Really Work?

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

We get 100's of reviews that are glowing about how struggling students come alive after coming to Mathnasium. Their grade increase and their confience 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 long enough to get them started and make sure they understand 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.

Our instructors quickly come back after a minute or two in order 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."
