Frequently Asked Questions

Contact your local Mathnasium Learning Centre with any questions have about our program. Here are some of the more common ones we get:

  • What does Mathnasium cost?

    Mathnasium provides premium value by combining a superior learning experience with an efficient structure that keeps costs low. There is a flat enrolment 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. Pricing varies by program and geographic area. Contact your local centre for more details on enrolment packages.

  • What makes Mathnasium different than tutoring?

    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.

  • What makes Mathnasium different than a math class?

    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.

  • Is Mathnasium for advanced students or struggling students?

    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.

  • What age students does Mathnasium work with?

    We work with children in grades K-12.

  • What kind of results does Mathnasium get?

    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.

  • How long does my child need to attend Mathnasium?

    We recommend 2-3 times a week until learning goals are met and parents are satisfied with what their child has accomplished.

  • Is there a Mathnasium near me?

    It's likely that there is a location near you, as there are over 1,100 Mathnasium centres in North America.

  • What if I can't get my child to a centre twice each week?

    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.

  • What do you do ... and what is the Mathnasium Method™?

    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.

  • Do you give homework to students?

    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.

  • 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 personalized 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 math. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we use fun games, and other interactive methods to ensure your child feels comfortable and confident.

  • What type of questions are on the assessment?

    We carefully craft our assessment questions to evaluate specific skills that are critical for success in math. Our assessments cover a wide range of math skills and concepts, including grade-level or subject-specific skills, number sense, and concepts unique to Mathnasium.

    We use a combination of verbal and written questions, and it's possible that some of the questions may cover topics your child hasn't yet learned in school. Our goal is to get a comprehensive understanding of your child's current math abilities, so we can create a personalized learning plan that meets their unique needs and goals.
