What makes a Student of the Month? Do they have superhuman brain power? CEO-level work ethic? Computing skills that could beat a calculator?
Ha! Certainly not. Here at Mathnasium of Brunswick, our students are just regular kids. With the help of our specially-trained Mathnasium instructors, regular kids can have extraordinary results! Each month, we choose one child to be our "Student of the Month." Here's what we've noticed:
Our Student of the Month shows 3 distinct traits:
1. Positive Attitude! Few factors predict success as well as a good attitude. A recent Stanford study has found that a positive attitude toward math boosts the brain's memory center and predicts better math performance.
Elizabeth, a 3rd grade Mathnasium student, summed it up this way: "It should be called Attitud-asium!"
2. Confidence! Our Student of the Month exhibits confidence in their ability to understand math. According to the Program for International Student Assessment (or PISA), a student's belief that they can solve math problems is associated with a difference in math skills - and the difference is equivalent to a FULL YEAR OF SCHOOLING. (Wow!)
One parent noticed, "Kailee's confidence has improved tremendously. Mathnasium has not only helped in math, it's helped in all her subjects."
3. Progression! Nothing is more motivating than seeing real, measurable progress. Our instructors at Mathnasium of Brunswick provide exactly what your child needs to see progress: guided practice. Increased math practice leads to increased math progress.
Mathnasium couldn't be more proud of our Student of the Month. Come visit us at 1825 US-130, North Brunswick Township, NJ 08902, and meet our director, Julia Jenson. We’d love to make a learning plan just for your child. Maybe, your child will be our next student of the month! Sign up now for a Free Math Skills Assessment!
