Does Mathnasium Compete With Schools?

Jan 25, 2022

014_Dec_Math-Success_01

According to the New York Times, an average secondary school has a class size of 24.3 students. That's a whole lot of kids for one math teacher. But the challenges teachers face don't end there.

  • Students have individual learning styles (kinesthetic, auditory, visual, etc.)
  • Students’ math knowledge begins at varied places (Some might be unsure of fractions, while some are ready to start multiplying and dividing them)
  • Students learn at different speeds (Some kids need a lot of material to stay engaged, while others need a slower pace to ensure complete comprehension is achieved)

It's enough to make your head spin, right? Mathnasium has great respect for math teachers. (In fact, our founder, Larry Martinek, was a math teacher.)

So does Mathnasium compete with schools? Nope. Not at all. Instead, we work alongside school teachers everywhere to reinforce the math lessons taught in the classroom. We understand that gaps in a child's math education can happen even with the best teachers. That's where Mathnasium of Winnetka can make a big difference. 

If your student needs help with homework, a tricky math concept, or craves a bigger challenge, our team is ready to augment your child's math education. Our Director, Christopher Jones, has watched kids learn to love math for several years. We want your child to have every advantage in learning math, so come see how Mathnasium can supplement your child's education. You can find us at 1060 Gage St, Winnetka, IL 60093.
