You have Questions ... We have Answers!

If my child loves math and is looking to dive deeper in their education, do you have the ability to help?

Our math and STEM mentorship team helps gifted and advanced students with math enrichment throughout the school year and during the summer. Children who are working ahead and above grade level, or those studying for the SAT or ACT benefit from Mathnasium of Newton's customized learning plans, putting students on the path to growing their problem-solving skills, critical thinking abilities and love for the subject. 


Make This School Year Greater Than Last Year!

My child needs math tutoring assistance to catch up and keep up in the classroom and help with homework. Is Mathnasium right for us?

Mathnasium of Newton's learning plans are customized to each student and taught by our team of instructors and math tutors empowered to inspire and excite. Students are not a commodity and we do not take a one-size fits all approach. We know your child is unique and they deserve a unique learning plan to address their personal math foundation gaps. We then teach math in a way that makes sense to them. Working with our math instructors at our Newton math learning center on tutoring, math homework and test prep help leads to greater confidence and abilities in math.


How do I get my student started at Mathnasium of Newton?

Our program is designed to meet the individual student’s current ability and learning style, and then build a custom learning plan specific to the student.  It's not a one size fits all approach.  

The first step in our enrollment process is to do a math assessment with each student. There is no cost for the assessment. It's just a matter of taking a look at a calendar and scheduling it.   

This assessment gives us insight about the student's strengths or gaps in their math abilities. From there, we are able to create a customized curriculum for the student based on their abilities and math goals.  


Once the free math assessment is completed, what comes next? 

Becoming a member at Mathnasium of Newton is both flexible and easy.  You can initiate your membership at any time and immediately begin benefitting from the Mathnasium experience without being locked into a long-term contract. 


When can my child come to Mathnasium of Newton and how often each week?

Joining the Mathnasium of Newton family is flexible and easy.  And, we make coming in for sessions as stress-free as possible with our Flexible Drop-In approach.  Most students attend 2 to 3 times per week (max is 3), but you do not need to schedule your time. Students can simply come in during our instruction windows at a time that is convenient to them.

Session Length:

  • Elementary:  60 minutes
  • Middle  School (up to pre-algebra):  60 minutes
  • Middle School (Algebra 1 and Up):  90 minutes
  • High School:  90 minutes

Our hours are:

  • Monday – Friday: from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m
  • Saturday: Closed


Is the math tutoring 1 on 1?

With each student having an individual learning plan, and individual learning style, our instructors are teaching each student individually.  During a child’s one on one math tutoring at Mathnasium of Newton, the instructor is going to actively teach the math and review math subjects with the student.  Then, as the student starts to show an understanding the Mathnasium instructor will ask the child to work independently.  This gives them the time to process this new math information without the pressure and stress of being watched. It also prevents a "learned helplessness" where the student feels that they need the instructor sitting in front of them all the time in order to be successful.  Afterall, we can't be there for their math tests!

The instructor will return to the student after a few moments to ensure they are doing the problems correctly.  If we find they are making an error, we are able to step in before it becomes a habit and reteach the concept using a different method until the student truly shows an understanding of it.  This helps your child to become a confident, independent learner.



Who are the instructors and math tutors at Mathnasium of Newton?

The Mathnasium of Newton math instructor team is passionate about math education and math tutoring.  Our passion to inspire children, fused with our knowledge of math, creates extraordinary experiences for our students. We make math make sense.  We make math fun!

The process to become a member of the Mathnasium of Newton instructor team includes:

  • All of our instructors go through an extensive interview process which includes an evaluation of their ability to work with students.  It's one thing to be knowledgeable in math, but we ensure our instructors have the ability to breakdown and teach math to students in elementary, middle and high school. 
  • After successfully completing the interview, instructors must then pass a math test to validate their math resume.
  • Before officially being hired, Mathnasium of Newton instructors go through a background check.
  • Upon joining the team, our math instructors and tutors go through an extensive training process that includes understanding the Mathnasium Method, best practices in math education, techniques for successful math tutoring, and proven strategies for working with students of different abilities to create a personalized math tutoring session.  Whether the student is advanced and gifted, on level and needs help staying there, or needs help catching up, our instructors are trained to ensure children have a successful productive experience at Mathnasium of Newton
