As programs and costs vary by location, it's best to contact your local Mathnasium centre for the most accurate answers.
We welcome you to contact your local Mathnasium Learning Centre with any questions have about our program. Here are some of the more common ones we get:
Mathnasium provides premium value by combining a superior learning experience with an efficient structure that keeps costs low. There is a flat enrollment fee for our program, and students attend regularly—much like a gym membership. We recommend that they attend Mathnasium 2-3 times per week as attending less frequently will slow results and attending too often could lead to student burnout. Although pricing varies by program and geographic area, the cost is usually equivalent to between $25 and $35 per session. Contact your local centre for more details on enrollment packages.
Unlike private tutors, our curriculum and methodology have been proven through the success of hundreds of thousands of students. Tutors are reactive, Mathnasium is proactive; we build each child's needed mathematical skills methodically and comprehensively. Backed by the extensive training and resources of a global organization, our instructors deliver a superior method, typically at a lower cost.
Unlike a math class, Mathnasium teaches to the individual. Each child is given a comprehensive assessment that pinpoints their exact strengths and weaknesses and a customized learning plan base on their specific learning goals. Our expert instructors provide face-to-face instruction at the right pace for each child.
Both. If a student is struggling, Mathnasium will address their learning gaps so they can catch up and get ahead. For students who already excel in math, the instructors will work with them to expand their math skills and help them achieve their greatest potential. And if your student is "doing OK" when you know they could do much better, we can engage and motivate your child to reach new heights.
We work with children in grades K-12.
Children who consistently attend our learning centres enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom. Multiple independent studies have found Mathnasium to improve student performance on standards-based tests in 20 sessions or fewer.*
We recommend 2-3 times a week until learning goals are met and parents are satisfied with what their child has accomplished.
It's likely that there is a location near you, as there are over 1,100 Mathnasium centres in North America.
We realize that with busy family schedules it can be hard getting your child to the centre twice a week. That's why we offer flexible scheduling as well as our online option—Mathnasium@home—to make it easier to attend weekly sessions. If your child is still unable to attend, they won't miss anything because we work at their pace and will simply meet them where they are at their next session.
The Mathnasium Method™ uses a combination of techniques to build math knowledge upon what students already know, so they're able to retain what they learn and gain confidence along the way. Learn more about the Mathnasium Method here.
No. All learning occurs under the efficient and effective guidance of our trained instructors. Adding homework would risk frustration and overload. In fact, we'll set aside some time each session to help your student with their school homework.
