WE HELP KIDS BY FOCUSING ON THEIR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL FOR THEM?
CATCH UP: Is homework taking too long? Is it frustrating? Is there a disconnect between ability to complete homework and performances on tests or quizzes? Since math builds on itself, if they are struggling now, it is safe to say you cannot lose focus on getting things on track - and sooner, not later
KEEP UP: Are they on pace with class expectations? Have they amstered at the skills to date and are they ready to handle the more advanced material around the bend?
GET AHEAD: Are they bored? Are they screaming for material that is consistent with their needs and appropriately challenging? Do they want to dig deeper into specific areas of math that interest them? We enrich kids every day, too!
Give us a call to schedule your free trial session! We will assess your student's mathematical strengths and areas of opportunity. Our meeting will give you and your child a sense of who we are, what we do, and how we can help. When students have the opportunity to experience a lesson, work with our friendly instructors, and see how clearly their questions are answered, they will want more of that powerful feeling of growth!
You're going to want to see our center and meet us before you have to commit to anything. We know you want to make sure Mathnasium is the best fit for your child’s needs.
The Best way to do this is with a Complimentary Assessment!
Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Math Learning Program
Do you specialize exclusively in mathematics?
Yes! Since our inception, we have been dedicated to delivering the world's premier after-school math program. Our focused approach means better results.
Will my child receive face-to-face instruction?
That's the only way we work! There are no group lectures or classes. We encourage engagement and questions -- they help your child learn!
How do you help students?
We build mastery layer by layer, engaging students with challenging material that develops number sense, mental math ability, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
How will you address my child's specific learning needs?
After our comprehensice assessment process, your child receives a fully customized learning plan. Then our math experts tailor their instruction to their individual learning needs and style.
Student's 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 abilities. Thanks to our comprehensive assessment, Mathnasium of Brandon creates customized learning plans to address a student's personal strengths or points of frustration. We then teach math in a way that makes sense to them. Working with our instructors on tutoring and homework help leads to greater confidence and abilities in math.
At Mathnasium, we believe every child has the ability to be successful in math. It’s just a matter of teaching math the way that makes sense to them. We’ll work with your child so they understand math and get on the path to advancement and improvement.
Our expert math tutors and instructors have a passion for helping kids in the GREATER BRANDON AREA improve their math skills and excel through our instructional programs.
My child already excels in math. Will Mathnasium address their needs?
Absolutely. Since Mathnasium is customized to the needs of each individual student, we can help advanced students stay engaged and stimulated by introducing them to more challenging math topics. More importantly, we can also help your child to develop even stronger numeric fluency and critical thinking skills, which are essential for continued success in math.
Why do children struggle with math?
Have you ever watched a foreign movie without subtitles? It can be confusing and frustrating because you don't understand the language! If your child is missing key math skills, this is exactly how they feel in math class!
In school, they treat kids the same because it is assumed that all kids learn the same way and at the same rate. The teachers are expected to cover vast amounts of material in a short period of time. If your child doesn't get a chance to master a skill for whatever reason – there is no time to give the necessary time and attention that they need. Teachers must move quickly to stay “on schedule". As a result, we see too many kids fall behind in math.
What happens next? The class moves on! Here come multiplication facts, fractions, percentages, decimals, mixed numbers, exponents, ratios, x=?, divisibility rules, algebra, geometry, equations. It never slows down so your child can catch up! They feel overwhelmed, embarrassed, and all alone! They begin to expect and accept failure as the "new normal" and think "I'm just not good in math!". If they lose confidence in themselves we typically see all of their other grades begin to suffer.
Is it any wonder why you have to fight with them to do their homework? With many kids, it is easier for them to fight you and not do the work than to put the effort into it only to see failure again. After a while, it just doesn't seem worth the effort for them.
Will a private one-on-one tutor work?
Unfortunately, in most cases a private tutor is a temporary fix for a long term problem. Private tutors only help children "survive" tonight's homework, but they don't address underlying issues. In most cases, private tutoring is not going to be a meaningful long term solution. Your child deserves to have that long-term impact in their math education!
How is Mathnasium different?
Great Question! The very first thing we do is give your child a skills assessment. It is both a written and oral assessment so that we can get a deep understanding of not only what they know, but how they think!
We sit down with them, put them at ease, and give them an assessment that doesn't feel too easy or too hard. Most importantly, we find out HOW THEY LEARN! Then we build their trust by giving them a few ideas and strategies that they can use immediately. We use the results to build a customized learning plan that targets skill gaps and quickly shows them success. In many cases “success” in math is something they have been craving!
Does Mathnasium Really Work?
Yes! Quite well, but don't take our word for it. We get 100's of reviews that are glowing about how struggling students come alive after coming to Mathnasium. Their grade increase and their confience skyrockets! Take a moment to read what your neighbors have to say about us.
Why is confidence in math important?
It's not just important, It's critical! Kids need to see that they can do the work so that they can feel confident! This fresh, new confidence will spill over to many other areas of your child's life. At this point you will start to see peace at home! You won't be having to fight with them to do homework. Not only will they have the confidence and the skills to attack it but they'll start bringing home better grades from school. How do we know this? Because we have seen it over and over again with hundreds of our students!
Are you doing one-on-one tutoring?
Another great question! Our instructors are not just average math tutors. We have brilliant, engaging, inspiring math experts that work one on one with your child. They make sure your child understands what to do. Then the instructor steps back and lets your child work independently to give them the time to process this new 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. [We can't be there for their math tests!]
Our instructors quickly come back after a minute or two to make sure they are doing the problems correctly, give them encouragement, and praise them for their efforts! If the student needs more math help we simply teach the lesson again in a different way without judgment or ridicule until they "get it." This enables your child to become a "confident, independent learner."
If this is what you want for your child - It's easy to get started!
