  • How can I help my child be a better test taker?

    There are three things you can do to help your child be a better test taker. First, you can encourage them to begin studying well in advance rather than cramming the night before. Also, make sure they get plenty of sleep to refresh and recharge their brain for the exam.

Encourage your child to maintain focus throughout their classes and not procrastinate in their studies. Make sure they don’t wait until the last minute to reach out for help, either!

  • What happens during the initial assessment at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we understand that assessments can sometimes feel stressful for students. That’s why we take a personalised and engaging approach to each assessment. We start by building rapport with your child, giving them a short centre tour, and setting expectations.

    We conduct both a verbal and written assessment to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as to gain a true understanding of how each student approaches and thinks about maths. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we use interactive methods to ensure your child feels comfortable and confident.

  • How often will my child take assessments at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we use assessments to track your child’s progress and make sure they are on the right path to maths success.

    We typically start with an assessment at the beginning of their programme and follow up periodically to keep track of how they’re doing. We work with your child to determine the right frequency for their assessments based on their individual needs and goals.
