Larry Martinek, Creator of the Mathnasium Method

Larry has spent his entire career finding a better way to teach math. From inner city public schools, to acclaimed magnet schools, to leading private and parochial schools, Larry has served as both a classroom teacher and as an educational consultant. He has designed curriculum, teaching strategies, and teaching materials to help students and teachers learn math more effectively. He has trained teachers in the art and science of boosting students' ability to “do” math, thereby increasing students' math scores and feeling of self-worth. Larry is the developer of Mathnasium’s educational program – one of the most comprehensive and innovative curriculas ever produced for teaching math.

The Mathnasium Method developed by Larry is implemented in our center by our trained instructors. Our instructors are not only passionate about math, they are also passionate about helping students understand, appreciate and excel in math.
