What Our Parents Have To Say
"My 10 yr. old son has been going to mathnasium for close to 2 yrs. now and he loves it. Through out the years we have seen alot of progress in his math skills. The staff is very helpful and friendly." - 5-Star Yelp review, November 2018
"The tutors here have been very helpful with my child, even remembering certain things I want them to focus on and other little things to please ignore in my child's work. They have a regular schedule of progress updates and reviews that they keep on top of with parents." -5-Star Yelp review, November 2018
"I was looking for tutoring for my son and once I walked in, I knew I was in the right place. My son loves going there." -5-Star Yelp review, March 2018
"The most powerful argument I can give anyone for attending Mathnasium or for choosing Mathnasium over your average math tutor is that Mathnasium offers a thorough assessment of your child's grasp of math concepts. This is crucial because children can't build on fundamental concepts if they haven't mastered them. The program finds the gaps and works on those specific problem areas. " 5-star Yelp review, November 2017
"My son has been attending Mathnasium of Glendale for the past five months and I can't heap enough praise on Maya, Evette, Erik and the rest of their incredible team. They have created a space where kids can learn math with support, encouragement, and positive reinforcement.
I am continually impressed with how familiar each instructor is with my son's abilities and progress and also with the care and organization that go into each session.
Maya goes out of her way to ensure that Mathnasium is in sync with a child's school - she is invested in the kids and truly wants them to succeed in achieving their individual math goals.
My son loves Mathnasium and looks forward to working with the team every week!" -5-star Yelp review, November 2017
"What an amazing group of people! Maya is an incredible tutor. Her dedication and kindness goes beyond expectations. She has gone out of her way to meet with my daughters teacher to make sure she provides her with the best lesson plans for sucess. I have seen more improvement in my daughters work in the past two months since she started Mathnasium, than I did through the whole school year. I highly recommend sending your child here." - 5-Star Yelp review, April 2017

"They have great instructors. Maya and Victoria are always willing and happy to answer any questions you have about your child's progress, work with you and the child on what you expect from them, etc. I feel so positive about the team here. I would suggest you do their trial sessions for free (or go for one of their Sunday Chess time) so you can decide for yourself." - 5-Star Yelp review, January 2017

Maya, Victoria and all of the instructors there are incredibly patient, very engaging, supportive and they know their math!...The instructors there take the time to explain the concepts in multiple ways, give her time to problem solve on her own and then check on her for understanding.
