I appreciate that the staff understand our specific goals and are willing to adjust to our daughters needs. The variety of people there to help gives her options as well. This has been a wonderful experience and for the first time in years we are seeing our daughter gain confidence in math class. Thank you for all you do!
The environment at Mathnasium is friendly and welcoming. The staff are very flexible and will listen to input. My daughter improved her grades and has a better understanding of her math homework. I really appreciated all the help and would recommend the program to any student struggling with math!!!
My tenth-grade daughter struggled with math for the past couple years, which led to a lot of gaps in her understanding. This compounded her difficulty learning new material, making her feel hopelessly lost, confused and frustrated. Mathnasium evaluated her grasp of all the concepts she has been exposed to in school up to the present, determined areas of weakness and developed a plan to strengthen her entire foundation. Within a month she had completed that plan, while simultaneously receiving instruction on her current material. Her confidence and grades are improving dramatically and she's gone from being lost in class to helping other students.
I used Mathnasium in the summer for both my boys. It helped my sons to master their math skills and improve on areas that are missing during the school year. One graduated high school and the other is in the 10th grade taking pre-calculus. Both had "A's" in math but more importantly they understand the reasoning behind the equations.
Mathnasium is a place to work at your own pace and also help with math scores for ACT/SAT.
My daughter has improved so much in her understanding of math has great confidence she have even improved in all areas of her school work I attribute her improvement to her time with the great staff at mathnasium!
My son is 7 years old. Due to personal issues he joined 1st grade in January. He missed a lot from school and I thought I should have him join some tutoring classes. I signed him for Kumon were they did a placement test and told me that he needs Reading and math classes. We started with them. After close to 10 months and hundreds of papers done at their place and as homework (that I needed to check and correct).. He was doing subtraction in his school (and he was doing great) while in Kumon he was still doing addition!!!! I addressed that with them and their answer was (he's not fast enough!!). Kumon is so structured and they don't think outside the box. On the other hand, Mathnasium has been GREAT with my kid. They started the placement test and they addressed his weaknesses... Made him practice what he needs to be better at and they give him ideas of how to think outside the box! How to make the problem solvable from another perspective. They don't give him homework, but he's welcome to go 6 days a week. Where, by the way, they do more like a one-on-one sessions. They make it personal. They make it fun. He's advancing there faster than in his school (that's the point of tutoring) and the main point is HE LOVES IT!!! Oh when I remember the nightmare that is Kumon: my son hated it, we were fighting all the time for him to do his homework (on top of the homework he gets from his school).. Even there, he would do his work on his own.. They were not spending special time with him to teach him tricks or techniques.. They were mostly trying to get him to MEMORIZE BY HEART additions!!
I'm so happy with Mathnasium and I highly recommend it to everyone who needs it! Good luck.
