"Grace is progressing beautifully at Mathnasium. Her teacher praised her math progress at her recent conference and called it remarkable. Best of all her confidence in her own ability is growing by leaps and bounds. Mathnasium has been a remote schooling life saver and we will continue even after in-person begins."

"Best of all, we hear from them how math is not so intimidating for them now. In fact, they actually look forward to getting out of the house and jumping on their bikes to ride to Mathnasium for their tutoring sessions, even in February now when it's overcast and a bit chilly here in Sammamish. Mathnasium has been a life saver for our family as our children are now catching up in math after losing so much ground due to online learning challenges."
