C.O. November 2020
The Glendora Mathnasium is the best around! We’ve referred more friends than we can count and they all agree! Their program is incredibly customized and they strike a fantastic balance between teaching new concepts while still assisting the student with current class assignments. Can’t say enough great things about Bon and his team!
M.K. November 2020
Bon and his team are excellent. My son likes the tutors and feels comfortable with them. Bon checks in regularly and quickly answers my emails.
C.H. August 2020
I didn’t think my two kids would enjoy going to Mathnasium however after the first visit they didn’t fight me when it was time to return. After a few appointments they actually looked forward to it and now they are a lot more confident when it comes to math. Thanks to the great staff!

My son received Calculus tutoring at the Glendora location. Bon and his team were supportive during the pandermic. I appreciate their help. I highly recommend Mathnasium Glendora.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do children struggle with math?
Have you ever watched a foreign film without subtitles? You can usually get a good idea of what is going on, but do you really understand the point of the movie? If a student is missing key foundational math skills, it makes it very difficult to keep up in class. They feel confused and frustrated...much the same way you felt while watching that movie and not understanding the language.
Most schools treat kids the same because it is assumed that all kids learn the same way and at the same rate. The teachers are expected to cover vast amounts of material in a short period of time. If your child doesn't get a chance to master a skill for whatever reason – that's too bad. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule". As a result, we see many kids fall behind in math.
What happens next? The class moves on! Here come multiplication facts, fractions, percentages, decimals, mixed numbers, exponents, ratios, x=?, divisibility rules, algebra, geometry, equations. It never slows down so your child can catch up! They feel overwhelmed, embarrassed, and all alone! They begin to expect and accept failure as the "new normal" and think "I'm just not good in math!" They lose all confidence in themselves and all of their other grades begin to suffer.
Is it any wonder why you have to fight with them to do their homework? With many kids, it is easier for them to fight you and not do the work than to put the effort into it only to see failure again. After a while, it just doesn't seem worth the effort for them.
How is Mathnasium different?
Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. We give them both a written and oral assessment so that we can get a deep understanding of not only what they know, but how they think! We sit down with them, put them at ease, and give them an assessment that doesn't feel too easy or too hard. Most importantly, we find out HOW THEY LEARN! Then we build their trust by giving them a few ideas and strategies that they can use immediately. We then build a customized learning plan that targets skill gaps and quickly shows them success. In many cases “success” in math is something they have been craving!
Why is confidence in math important?
It's not just important: It's critical! Kids need to see that they can do the work so that they can feel confident! This fresh, new confidence will spill over to many other areas of your child's life. At this point you will start to see peace at home! You won't be having to fight with them to do homework. Not only will they have the confidence and the skills to attack it but they'll start bringing home better grades from school. How do we know this? Because we have seen it over and over again with hundreds of students!
