Q: How does Mathnasium bring about success in your students?

A: When kids fall behind, catching up can seem like an insurmountable challenge. Mathnasium teaches problem solving through the lens of number sense, so students often learn that just because they haven't seen a particular type of problem before doesn't mean they can't solve it. We are always elated to hear from parents who have noticed a substantial positive impact with their child's performance in school after enrolling at Mathnasium. One of the most frequent trends that parents notice early in an enrollment is the child's attitude towards math.

Q: Tell me about how Mathnasium improves a student's attitude in Math.

A: Confidence is huge. Kids whose education has centered around memorization of facts tend to get anxious and "freeze up" on school tests when they see something they don't recognize or haven't memorized. By showing students how to connect various concepts together, we give them the skill of being able to approach these sorts of nontrivial questions with an "I can" attitude instead of "I can't."

Q: How does Mathnasium celebrate its student's success?

A: When students bring in tests or quizzes that they've aced, they earn bonus stamps and a special sticker on their sticker sheets.

Q: Do you have a favorite memory of a student showing off their improvement in school?

A: We've had many students bring in schoolwork or test grades showing that their hard work is paying off. It's especially great to see a student show genuine pride in his/her work.

We'd love to make your student a success story too! Visit our website for more information today.
