Well my daughter and I'm went from both crying when we tried to do math together to her asking to go to Mathnasium because she looked forward to what she was learning and felt very confident and good about herself that she was understanding it and able to do the work so I thank Mathnasium so much for their encouragement positivity support and competent help and the system they use to help my daughter have a great attitude towards math and know that she can succeed when she gets help and puts her mind to it.
I finally se my daughter having fun learning math! She enjoys the method and says that for the first time things make sense to her. The one on one approach with enough time of theory, practice and homework explanation works very well so kids are not bored or overwhelmed.
Aaron loves going to Mathnasium and as a mom, I love that he is eager to learn about math in a fun environment. He's motivated by earning rewards and likes showing off what he's learned. When asked what his favorite subject is he always says - recess then MATH! lol :) Music to this Mama's ears! Thanks Mathnasium!
Exceptional tutors and very strong curriculum.
Jennifer and David are also generous owners and creative with prizes, contests, etc. Also appreciate that they change schedules/ add more hours as required to accommodate student needs.
I love how my daughter got better in math and her scores.Before going there she had to spend lots of time in her homework trying to remember things. Later going to mathnasium she could remember things easily and learned some new techniques to go with it to make math more easier.
Our daughter will be entering 5th grade and has always struggled with math. As a result, she has always disliked math. A couple of years ago, we regrettably had her enrolled in Kumon. Everything about Kumon was a constant battle - going to the sessions and especially the redundant homework problems. She had pages and pages of it. I honestly think it was a waste of money as our daughter didn't learn anything because they didn't teach her anything.
Ultimately we think it had a negative impact. After that awful experience, we decided to help her at home with websites recommended by the teachers that mirrored what was being taught in the classroom. Our daughter continued to struggle, especially on tests. We decided it was time for some real professional help. We were thinking of finding a tutor to come to our house, but that wouldn't really work with our random work schedules, sports activities, etc. After some research on Yelp, I decided to contact Mathnasium of Almaden. You can tell that the owners (David and Jennifer) are very involved in their business. This does make a real difference. The owners don't have an office in the back corner where they keep their doors closed. Instead, they have an office right at the heart of the learning center. We have experienced nothing but a professional and positive atmosphere at Mathnasium of Almaden - From the initial inquiry over the phone, to our initial meeting/math evaluation, to the tutoring sessions and instructors.
Our daughter absolutely loves going to Mathnasium...the instructors are very approachable and our daughter is not afraid to ask questions. We truly feel our daughter is learning something. It is such a fun and welcoming environment. The flexible schedule works great with our busy schedules. They even have neat incentives for the kids and fun summer activities to keep the kids motivated to doing some math during summer break! Mathnasium is a win-win for us!
