Mathnasium's Chief Curriculum Officer
(Personally tutoring a student at Sherman Oaks)
More than forty years ago, math educator Larry Martinek was inspired to find a better way to teach children math.
As a classroom teacher, teacher-trainer, and consultant in public and top private schools—and father to a mathematically gifted son—Larry possessed a uniquely comprehensive view of education. He saw a troubling theme in mathematics instruction: a serious disconnect between the students’ basic skills training and the curriculum they were expected to master in the years to come. They weren’t being prepared properly for their future.
Larry set out on a mission: to find an approach that would provide children with the strong foundation they needed to succeed. Over the next three decades, he painstakingly developed and assembled a blend of methods and materials. Instead of relying on traditional rote memorization and repetitive exercises, Larry’s work focused on helping children understand math by honing their math instincts and getting them to think like mathematicians.
We were priviledged to have Larry teach our kids Math at our school, before the creation of Mathnasium and can't begin to tell you the difference he made in our children's lives.
Currently Open for IN-CENTER and @Home instruction. We are complying with current L.A. County Health Covid-19 Policies.- OFFICE HOURS WILL BE FROM 11AM - 6PM
