Well round coaching and emphasis on understanding concepts rather than just repetitive practice. I also like the use of paper and pencil in the class, I believe it helps them focus better. Also having kids with multiple levels learn in close proximity helps the junior kids pick up some advanced concepts.
I am an adult student and they were excellent with me. I needed to get in fast and learn fast and the eden prairie team was super helpful!! I needed to pass a placement test to get into a college algebra class, but I actually placed into the pre-calculus class after maybe 7 visits. The cost of the "10 session" pack that i bought was expensive, but it was less than the cost of taking a class, and in the end it saved me the cost of 2 classes! Awesome!
My daughter is a 3rd grader and loves Mathnasium! We tried it out this summer and enjoyed it so much that she has asked to continue throughout the school year! She loves all the teachers and connects with how they are teaching her to learn! She told me that she is becoming a "confident math student"! What parent doesn't want to hear that! Thank you Mathnasium!
Our daughter has been going to Mathnasium for years and it has nicely transitioned her through middle school and in to high school math. It has increased her comfort level with math and made it a subject she enjoys.
I really like the fact that my son goes and gets one on one direction with teachers he can really relate to. He looks up to the staff and strives to do great because they install a sense of confidence in him. I like the hours and the location. The only thing that would help would be shuttle service :) Thanks for doing a treat job!
