At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centers enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

Our son is very positive about it. He is part of several activities and pointedly ask him if he enjoys going to Mathnasium. He likes going there. We can also see that he is getting better at math.
More importantly we feel the location is run by people who are diligent and sincere. Every time we have spoken to the owner or the supervisor lady we have come back reassured that these folks have the best of the student in your minds. Even though they are a for profit outfit, to me, intention and volition matters. Because I feel in the end, that is most important because then we know that over time they would overcome any temporary shortcomings and do right by the students.
In particular, I want to mention that the staff is firm but also kind to students. At this tender age both those traits matters. In tomorrow's world perhaps the only thing that won't be outdated is mathematical skills. So it is important to not discourage young minds away from learning math. But at the same time they need persuasion and discipline to put in the hard work needed to move ahead. It is hard to get this mix right and these folks seem to have it.
Our son has been coming here for about 9 months now. I have definitely noticed an improvement in his math skills. The tutors all seem to be very nice and the facility is always clean and comfortable. They are very flexible with scheduling and do their best to accommodate your needs. I like that they do assessment tests to evaluate progress and then offer to do parent/tutor conferences.
My kids were going to Mathnasium at The Plant Shopping Center for a couple years and although we liked the tutors, once Mathnasium opened at Evergreen Village Square, I transferred them there since it was so much closer to my house.
Ray the director and the head tutor Christopher are very nice. They care about the students. The days/times that you go to this Mathnasium are by appointment so that they make sure they have enough tutors per students. After each session, there's a summary form of what they worked on. They have hired more tutors as their enrollment increases. The kids work on worksheets on areas they need to improve. If there is a test or homework you want them to help your kids with, they will also do that. There are no additional worksheets that you take home. The place is spacious and clean and my kids enjoy going there for tutoring.
