At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centers enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

I saw my children excel, gain confidence and they loved watching their own grades "soar." Denise and the other instructors care about the children and help formulate a plan so that every child can succeed. I am grateful for everything Mathnasium has done for my children and always recommend it to everyone whether it is for helping a child who is behind, or just keeping them way ahead and challenged!" ?

"Several years ago my daughter began taking classes at Mathnasium. Not because she was deficient in math but because she loved math. The instructors have been wonderful over the years and we could not be happier with Avery's progress. How do we say thank you for what you have given us? How do we show our appreciation for the help you have given us on our journey with one of our children, our most precious gifts. This is without a doubt the bet decision I have ever made and would be a bargain at 4 or 5 times the price. I have attached a letter from our school about Avery competing on a Geometry team for her Middle School. Geometry as an eighth grader and on a competing team, WOW! Thank you Denise and the entire staff at Mathnasium at Brier Creek. You are making differences in kids lives!"
-Avery's dad John
"I wanted to thank you and Mathnasium for your program and the support my son received from you, Devore, Dimitri, Emma and the other instructors that tutored Seth from November 2011 - May 2012."
"As a result of Mathnasium's tutoring help, my son went from an F in November on his interim to receiving the highest score (100) on the Algebra I mid-term in his school and finished the 2nd Quarter and 1st Semester with a grade of B. In the second semester, with my son's new found confidence in Algebra I and with Mathnasium's tutoring support twice a week - , my son received a B in Algebra I in the 3rd quarter and started preparing for the End of Year Math exam and End of Course Algebra I exam."
I am pleased to tell you:
1) He received for the End of Grade exam a Scale Score of 377 and Percentile Rank of 97% (Level 4).
2) He received the Excellence in Math Award for the 4th quarter in his Algebra I class. He also received a Level 4 grade on his End of Course exam and finished the year with an "A" in the 4th quarter, an "A" for the 2nd semester, and an "A" for the Final Algebra I math grade.
The End of Grade exam's statement read - "Students performing at this level consistently perform in a superior manner clearly beyond that required to be proficient at grade level work!"
Thank you for your program, your teachers, and for giving him the skills and confidence to be able to persevere and excel in Algebra! I would highly recommend Mathnasium to any student struggling in Math, or wanting to brush up on their skills, or wanting to adequately prepare for exams!

Dear Mathnasium Brier Creek:
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Ms. DaVore and the staff at Brier Creek Mathnasium for all the efforts they made teaching my 11 year old son this summer. I am a firm believer in the important role that educators play in the life of children and Ms.DaVore exemplifies all the best qualities that a parent could hope for in this influential position. What I observed is that she has managed to create a most positive learning environment wherein the children are not only learning, but happy to be there as well!
We live overseas but spend our summers here in Raleigh with family. My son told me he wished we lived here always so that he could come to Mathnasium with Ms.DaVore!
