Mathanasium has been fantastic for my first grader. He enjoys math and wanted a challenge. The Mathanasium group is able to challenge him with an organized approach that fills in some gaps that he missed due to moving ahead quickly. He loves the teachers and actually wants to... and looks forward to his time at Mathanasium! In fact, he wants to go more than once a week. Somehow, the teachers are able to challenge him and keep him loving math and coming back for more. As a parent, I appreciated the pre-testing which highlighted gaps and strengths. It's been a wonderful experience for us.
I greatly appreciated one of the tutors coming out to my car at pick up to offer insight on my child's progress. My child felt great hearing that her tutor thought she was doing well and working hard. Thanks for that!
We have always had success with your teachers. We wish there was a program in place to continue with sessions when our son is not in math class at school, but wants to keep his math knowledge fresh in his mind.
Regarding the closure due to the recent snow storm, it appeared to me that the roads were pretty good in the area on Sunday and definitely ok on Monday. I am not sure if you tie you decision to WCPSS or to the other Mathnasium locations though.
Our kids look forward to their sessions each week, they are always either learning new skills or reinforcing what they know, and, our son who ended last semester with a C in math and almost flunked his final exam (before starting at Mathnasium), just ended this quarter with a solid A.
