My two kids didn't feel like they were learning enough math in school and we're getting bored in class. When they heard about Mathnasium, met the great teachers, and did the sample lesson that was based on Mathnasium's assessment tests, they could't wait to join! Now both kids are loving the curriculum that was specifically designed for them. They are both loving math again! They also really enjoy being with the staff at the Burlingame location, and I think that they think that they have found a second home!
This is the best program I've experienced for any of my kids. It is customized to address the gaps in the child's knowledge and it's very effective. The best part is that my child goes to each session without any hassle, unlike Kumon which my kids hated. My child has improved her math skills tremendously over the last 1.5 years and is now so much more confident in her math class and getting A's. I couldn't be happier!
I think one element that should be added is to set a speed goal so kids do more worksheets in a certain amount of time. Since tutors are working with few kids at a time, kids may not focus while they are on their own so a time goal may help.
The staff at Mathnasium is wonderful. My daughter really enjoys going to Mathnasium, which is saying a lot considering the fact that Math has been a difficult subject for her. After school tutoring or homework help cannot do what Mathnasium does. This is a program that assists with your child's current math homework, while designating half of the session to skill building. I'm more than pleased with their dedication and care. I'm so happy that a "math gym" like this exists!
Program has been very helpful for my daughter in bringing her up to speed on her math. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Online scheduling is very convenient.
Has been a very positive experience overall.
