So you have decided that your child needs help with math and enrolled them in Mathnasium of Dacula. Now you're wondering how long it will take to get their math skills up to par?

We hear this question a lot. Spoiler Alert: One 60 min session per month is not enough to make significant math gains!

We can give you a good estimate of the amount of time it takes a math student to become math-proficient at Mathnasium. Read on:

The first thing to keep in mind (and this is really important) is that not every math student starts at the same place. Just because two students are in 9th grade geometry, doesn't mean they have the same math foundation.

Consider two piano students: one who had never played a note, and another who understood how to read music and had basic piano skills. If both are asked to master the piece ‘Fur Elise’, it wouldn't be fair to assume it would take them the same amount of time. Math is no different.

The next important consideration is the amount of time students are able to commit to math practice.  Perhaps two math students have the same skill level, but one practices math twice as frequently as the other, who do you think would develop math skills more quickly?  Our piano example works to illustrate this point as well.  Piano students who practice regularly master the piano much faster than those who don't.

You're still wondering what time commitment in hours you need to make and if you'll ever get there. Okay, okay, fair enough!  

We recommend 2-3 60 minute sessions per week at Mathnasium. Students who attend with this regularity for six months see enormous increases in math understanding, math confidence and higher math grades at school.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, piano instructors recommend students practice about 3 hours per week.  Yes, developing math skills is more like other types of lessons (dance, piano, karate, sports, etc.) than people realize.
