Since our first learning centre opened in California in the spring of 2002, we have grown to more than 1,100 Mathnasium Learning Centres worldwide.

At the core of our business is a set of beliefs that guides us in our mission of changing lives. Continue reading to learn our thoughts about maths and learning. And, as always, if you have questions or would like to know more, visit us at


Maths matters, in school and in life.
Maths proficiency impacts a child’s academic and career opportunities. It promotes critical thinking and teaches problem-solving. Success in maths supports success in life.

Anyone can succeed in maths.
Children are not hardwired to be good or bad at maths. With the right materials, the right instruction, and the right support, any child can learn, enjoy, and thrive in maths.

Maths is fun.
Learning maths and solving maths problems are fundamentally stimulating, rewarding, and fun activities. Although maths mastery is a serious subject, we know how to keep the process fun.


True understanding leads to higher performance and lasts a lifetime.
Building a child’s foundational understanding supports progressive learning, higher performance, and long-term retention.

Individualised instruction is the best way to address a child’s unique learning needs.
We tailor our approach with personalised lesson plans and engaging, face-to-face instruction to support each child exactly where they need it most.

People are the best teaching technology.
There’s nothing better than a well-trained, enthusiastic, and compassionate instructor to motivate achievement, provide emotional support, and celebrate student success.

Learning is a lifelong process.
Mastering maths doesn’t happen overnight. Learning compounds with ongoing training. And the investment of time and energy pays lasting dividends.
