Q: What is the first thing a brand new student does at your center?
A: When new students first arrive in our center, we give them the Grand Tour! This includes browsing our rewards cabinet and explaining how punches are earned. We stop by the calendar to see all the fun things we do at Mathnasium. Then we show them how current students interact with their instructors, explain the spin wheel and how students earn stars. If a new student is going to do an assessment, we want them comfortable, ready to show us what they know, and ready to learn something new!
Q: What is the comprehensive assessment? How long does it take to finish?
A: Our comprehensive assessment is a tool we use to determine a student's strengths and weaknesses. We need to know where they are so we can move forward from there. Some students are right on track, but want to advance their skills. Others may be struggling and need some foundational skills solidified and strengthened. Our comprehensive assessment will target any gaps so we can address root causes of the student's struggle. We then use the results to build a customized learning plan, unique to the student. The assessment takes about an hour, but we usually plan on 1.5 hours so we have time to discuss the results with parents.
Q: How often should I bring my student to Mathnasium of Greenville Five Forks?
A: Building math skills takes practice, just like playing the piano or dribbling a ball. We like our students to have about 10 sessions each month.

A: Our instructors are amazing! We have a few high school students who are at the top of their class; we have some retired teachers and engineers. All of our instructors must pass a rigorous math exam and are trained in teaching the Mathnasium Method.
