News from Mathnasium of Mill Valley
Wonderful Parent Letter!
Feb 26, 2019
We started at mathnasium with both our children back in 2015 as they were entering 5th and 6th grade, respectively, and have seen excellent results. As the curriculum at school became more complex, it was becoming more of a challenge for us as parents to effectively help them with their homework and test preparation at home. Mathnasium has been a tremendous 'go to' resource when there is a homework problem that just seemingly cannot get solved or an upcoming test calling for additional review.
In tandem with this classroom resource, our kids have been working through the separate Mathnasium levels of instruction, which has effectively resulted in a comprehensive combined math background (school plus Mathnasium) which ensures that nothing falls through the cracks. The benefit of this combined approach became very clear as our older child went through a series of standardized high school math placement tests this past year. His results were excellent, far beyond our expectations and clearly a result of the repeated math practice and review he has received at Mathnasium. He placed into an advanced high school math class beyond most of his peers and there is no doubt in our mind that Mathnasium played a big part in that positive result.
We particularly appreciate the flexible schedule available. Unlike more traditional 'tutoring' arrangements which require advance scheduling, Mathnasium is open 7 days a week to come and go as your needs and openings arise. This in itself is a huge benefit to us as we juggle fluctuating sports and extracurricular activities.
