Mathnasium is by far “the best” math resource we have found; it is applicable and relevant to the actual school work of the student. After math abilities are assessed the students work in what they need in order to solidify math skills; their “homework” is explain and similar exercises are given to master a particular topic. Students are able to study for his test at Mathnasium versus following some inflexible structure. Once a student masters the current lesson, they move ahead to their next topic. It is totally relevant to each student’s class. In addition, the tutors are accommodating and patient.
My kids have been with Mathnasium for the last 4 years. One of my son just came home with being in the top 10% on the AMC 8 competition. My kids still love to go to their sessions after all these years.
As a matter of fact, we actually referred three of Chloe's friends to Mathnasium. Chloe enjoys going to Mathnasium. She said she would tell all her friends and classmates to go to Mathnasium if she scored well on the Hunter College High School test.
Whenever I hear a parent complaining about their child's Math grades, I tell them to go to Mathnasium for individualized tutoring. However, some do feel that at around $40 a lesson is high for tutoring that is not one-on-one.
