Let me introduce you to Dylan, a 12-year-old Mathnasium student. His own words, "If it weren't for Mathnasium, I would not be be where I am today."
Unfortunately, Dylan's math story began to take an ugly turn when he was in 6th grade. It's a narrative that's all too familiar - you might even recognize it in your own child. The story goes something like this:
1. First, feeling frustrated in math class
2. Then, trying but not being able to firmly grasp concepts
3. And finally, ending up with a strong dislike for math
Dylan isn't alone. In fact, a recent poll revealed that 40% of students said math was their least favorite subject. (Read more here) The good news is Dylan's situation can be remedied. Thankfully, Dylan's parents brought him into Mathnasium, where our trained instructors pinpointed the weak spots in his math education. In his case, it was a combination of his past understanding of fractions and also order of operations. Those areas were then re-taught in ways Dylan understood and at the pace he needed. Dylan then proceeded to confidently show how to solve a problem using the correct order of operations, even those with fractions, and decimals. Wahoo!!!
Now that he has gotten A's on his most recent math tests, he is expecting to make it into next year's Honors Math class. We are so happy and proud that Dylan has opened the doors to a world of future opportunities.
Mathnasium results are real - impressively real!
