My son was good in math but had lost interest. Mathnasium put him back on the path to success and gave him confidence to succeed. He now has straight A's in every subject and a A+ in math. Thanks Mathnasium.
I signed my son up for Mathnasium because he excels in math, and although his school will give him challenge work, I wonder if he is gifted. I hoped to give him the opportunity to grow his potential in an environment where math is loved. I have been extremely pleased from the moment he walks in and is greeted by name, to the individual attention and positive reinforcement. He loves going, and we both appreciate the math toys that are made available that make it even more fun and help him apply the skills. His math ability has soared since he started and he still loves it.
My daughter was taught some math tricks that I myself never knew. Things I realized that there are multiple ways in solving basic arithmetic problems aside from the ones I was taught during my elementary years. The staff are very courteous and professional. The venue is very festive with math that I was never be bored waiting until my daughter finishes her sessions, it was filled with games, toys etc. After some sessions, my daughter told me she felt like her brain was stretched.
I appreciate that when my child walks in he is greeted with a smile, a hello and his name. All the teachers work hard to give attention while challenging the children to think through their work. I like that they allow the children to take mental breaks and use math toys as needed.
We started Mathnasium as a way to prevent summer slide for our rising 3rd grader. All of her grades have always been excellent, but we know that 3rd grade math covers a lot of new ground and we wanted her to be ready. From the start, our daughter enjoyed Mathnasium and said it was more fun than she expected. As the summer progressed, she asked us to schedule more time at Mathnasium. We will consider returning to Mathnasium during the school year, but are definitely returning next summer!
