Is Your Child Avoiding Math?

Avoid math

"My experience in math class was (insert a long, introspective sigh) uncomfortable," says Julia Drummins, who is now a mother of three. "I was always nervous about being called on to answer questions I didn't know the answer to. I remember trying to avoid making eye contact with the teacher and hoping that my friends in the class never realized that I didn't understand what was being taught."

Perhaps you shared something similar, or perhaps your student is experiencing it right now. At Mathnasium of Johns Creek, we want to shout from the rooftops that IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY!! Feeling uncomfortable and insecure in math class lead to students professing that they hate math, but it isn't really math that they hate. Larry Martinek, the founder of Mathnasium, summed it up like this:</o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">"Children don't hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math." </o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">At Mathnasium, we know the remedy! We teach and tutor our students in a different way...</o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">Imagine a safe, quiet classroom setting with personalized instruction.</o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">Imagine Mathnasium Instructors creating a customized learning plan for your child's needs.</o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">Imagine Mathnasium Instructors incorporating different teaching styles to find which one your student responds best to.</o:p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:#333333">Imagine making math fun by motivating your student with big-time rewards.</o:p>
