US tutor brand Mathnasium launches in Australia

May 14, 2019 | Gordon

US tutoring franchise Mathnasium is now operating in Australia.

Heading up the NSW and ACT business, master franchisees Himanshu Gupta and his wife Ratika Khandelwal plan to open up to 30 outlets in the next four years.

The education centres will be a mix of franchised and corporate operations.

Mathnasium is a unique kids’ tutoring model, Gupta told Inside Franchise Business.

“We are like a maths gymnasium with a monthly membership fee, you can come any time of the day you want.”

Mathnasium recommends optimum attendance is two to three times a week for a one hour session or 90 minutes for older kids.

“We start from kindy, typically teach to year 10 although there are some in years 11 and 12 who have gaps. But the majority are year 7 or under.”

Gupta believes the development of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) sector makes maths increasingly relevant.
