Before and After Mathnasium

Mar 22, 2022 | Highland Park


At Mathnasium of Highland Park, we get to see amazing math-transformations. Students come to us feeling confused and frustrated about math but they don't stay that way. Here's the story of Rafael, a Mathnasium student who learned to love math.

Rafael came to us in January of 2020 as a struggling math student. He was so frustrated with previous math failures that he experienced anxiety at the mere thought of taking a math test. Rafael shares that attending a math learning center, "sounded like a big punishment, and I thought it wouldn't help me get better at math anyway. I thought I would always be bad at math." Rafael is one of thousands of kids who has endured negative experiences with math.

Mathnasium boldly declares that math can make sense! As difficult as it is for parents and struggling math students to believe, math success is attainable. For real! In Mathnasium, we've seen so many students improve in math (both skills and attitude) that we realize the claim "I'll never be able to understand math" is simply false. 

Rafael now gushes that math is his second favorite subject in school (art will forever hold the first place). There is no magic behind the Mathnasium Method. We assess math skills, fill in the gaps with world-renowned curriculum and instructors, then reassess and repeat. Our reward system helps motivate students and contributes to a jovial atmosphere. Mathnasium memberships offer flexible session times and consistent instruction so that students receive regular instruction (cramming for tests just doesn't work).
