FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Get answers to common questions to resolve basic outstanding concerns without speaking to someone.

  • Do you specialise exclusively in mathematics?

    Yes, we do. Mathnasium was established in 2002 and now operates over 1,100 learning centres globally and is rapidly expanding across the UK to provide the best personalised maths tutoring locally to you. Larry, a teacher, a curriculum consultant, and Mathnasium’s expert on the team, spent years refining maths teaching methods.

    We have designed fun and engaging techniques to help children understand maths easily. And we have highly experienced and qualified maths tutors who teach our after-school mathematics programmes.

  • Will my child receive face-to-face instruction?

    Yes! Not only does your child get the best maths tutoring, but they also receive face-to-face instruction. Whether your child takes online or in-centre classes, our maths tutors focus on the individual. There are no classes. We assess each child’s maths skills and abilities and customise the maths curriculum to help them reach their goals. Your child will get targeted lessons, allowing them to master new material in the way they learn best.

  • How do you help students?

    Our proven teaching method helps students build a strong base and expand their maths understanding. Our maths tutors encourage children to develop mental maths abilities, number sense, and problem-solving skills.

    Mathnasium uses modern techniques and fun methods to help children fall in love with maths instead of getting bored or terrified by lessons. We tailor our instruction to your child’s learning style and needs.

  • How will you address my child’s specific learning needs?

    After our comprehensive assessment process, your child receives a fully customised learning plan. Our maths experts will tailor their instruction to your child's individual learning needs and style.

  • Can you help my child with the 11+ or entrance exam or other test prep?

    We can help all the way through to GCSE, including whatever tests come up in that time. Test Prep is a specific learning goal that’s addressed through individualised targeting of gaps in foundational knowledge, careful analysis of errors to provide the right materials at the right time and improved computational fluency to improve both competence and accuracy in test taking. Improvements in number sense and problem solving are addressed as students learn to apply what they know out of context, recognising why numbers are being used and developing their reasoning capability.

  • Will my child enjoy attending?

    Absolutely! Children love to engage in fun activities that don’t require them to go through traditional maths learning methods. Our maths tutors capitalise on everyday experiences to allow children to learn concepts in a way that makes sense to them.

    Mathnasium’s teaching methods challenge children and encourage them to learn skills quickly. Our in-centre activities and reward incentives also help to make Mathnasium a popular tutoring system.

  • How does this approach compare with private tutoring?

    Maths tutors locally might help children do homework and practice daily school lessons, but they aren’t always able to develop the important building blocks in students’ minds. Mathnasium uses a curriculum and methodology that has been proven through the success of thousands of students.

    We have the resources of a global organisation and provide extensive training to back our teaching methods. Mathnasium’s experts provide better and more focused instruction at an affordable cost.

  • Will you help my child with their maths homework?

    Our experts will provide homework help to your child during sessions. However, our core curriculum is centred around establishing a better understanding of maths, which will enable students to complete homework on their own in the future. Most of their time at Mathnasium will be spent on our curriculum, but time is set aside for help with homework at every session, as needed.

    Our maths tutoring ensures that your child understands their homework instead of just getting through it. This takes the burden off parents and allows children to stay on track at school and achieve higher grades.

  • Will you give my child homework?

    No! We don’t burden students with extra homework. Our expert instructors build a strong relationship with students, giving them efficient and effective guidance in their maths tutoring sessions every day as they work on specific skills and make good progress during their time in the centre. Adding homework would risk frustration and overload.

  • What happens during the initial assessment at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we understand that assessments can sometimes feel stressful for students. That’s why we take a personalised and engaging approach to each assessment. We start by building rapport with your child, giving them a short centre tour, and setting expectations.

    We conduct an assessment involving both verbal and written questions to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as to gain a true understanding of how each student approaches and thinks about maths. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we use fun interactive methods to ensure your child feels comfortable and confident.

  • What type of questions are on the assessment?

    We carefully craft our assessment questions to evaluate specific skills that are critical for success in maths. Our assessments cover a wide range of maths skills and concepts, including curriculum level skills, number sense, and concepts unique to Mathnasium.

    We use a combination of verbal and written questions, and it's possible that some of the questions may cover topics your child hasn't yet learned in school. Our goal is to get a comprehensive understanding of your child's current maths abilities, so we can create a personalised learning plan that meets their unique needs and goals.

  • I’m interested in opening a Mathnasium centre of my own - how do I apply?

    Have a look at the 'Own a Franchise' link below and complete the contact form. We will then get straight back to you to discuss the opportunity with you further.

  • I’d like to work for Mathnasium - how do I apply?

    Our centres are often recruiting for their instruction teams; we have roles available from tutor/instructor level to management opportunities and are always keen to hear from candidates with strong maths skills who enjoy working with children and are good communicators. We provide extensive training for the right candidates. Please go to the Contact Us form and send us your details.

  • Do you accept childcare vouchers?

    We don’t accept childcare vouchers but contact your local centre to see whether they are running any promotional offers at the moment.
