From from Our Parents:
Mathnasium of Bloomington-Normal has helped my daughter to understand and comprehend math. She has more confidence in herself and her ability to do math.

One of our children was struggling in every way possible in Math. Frustration was high enough to prevent focus not just through an assignment but through an individual problem. Comprehension was low ans strategy/problem solving was worse. Math was completely given up on and it was starting to hurt other subjects as well. Though the two of us combined have taught at levels from elementary school through graduate school, we needed help and reached out to Mathnasium. After a little over 3 months into the new school year we are seeing all A's and B's. Amazingly, the best grade of over 100% is in Math. Now we have a confident child that seems to love learning and is willing to explore new strategies as well. An additional benefit is that the frustrated confrontations around the homework table are also gone and the house can be open for fun family time in the evening. This program and specifically the teachers at this site have been awesome to say the least.
My daughter has grown so much with her math, and in school overall thanks to Mathnasium! She is more confident with problem solving, and enjoys doing her homework....Evenon Friday night!!
