Homework Help

If your child needs help with homework and their homework is on paper, please scan and send a pdf of the homework to westseattle@mathnasium.com at least 24 hours before their session. If the homework is online, we can help through screen sharing too.
 

Shadowing the Student

We recommend that you let our trained instructors interact with, teach and guide your students during the session. Please do not provide additional instruction or give your students answers as this may cause confusion and impact their understanding of the material.
 

Have Questions for the Instructor

The instructor who is working with your student will also be working with other students at the same time, rotating between 1-3 students. To ensure they provide the highest level of instruction to all Mathletes, please contact the center directly with any questions or other information that may need to be communicated.  The instructor will not be able to relay information or engage in conversations with anyone besides the student.
 

Rewards Program

Students love our rewards program where they earn points for their achievements and for mastering new concepts. The instructors will keep a count of stars and spins earned during each session, which your student will be rewarded when they transition back to the in-center program. If they have many stars accumulated that they want to use, they are welcome to come to the center during the center open hours to redeem them.
