Nicole really enjoys going which is quite shocking since this is for math. She lovesthe dry erase tables and games the teachers play are all fun. I have never heard her say any tutor or tutoring place was fun until we tried this.
Mathnasium is a very well organized and effective company. Our children are surpassing all benchmarks at school with an "A" in math. In a recent CogAT test, our children score 96 and 97 percentile for their grade level and nationally ranked based on age. They are learning 1 1/2 grade above their current level and are excelling. I really cannot ask for any more.
I love the flexibility of the program because it allows my children to attend more of the classes per week. Being able to attend so often has made the program extremely effective and I'm seeing a huge improvement in their everyday application of math skills/concepts. They are much more self-confident in their understanding and use of math as well which is a fantastic bonus :)
They are always ready and willing to care for my child. From the time we get to the door to the time we leave there is a positive caring environment. They are truly meeting children where they are at. A positive example of a child centered moment was that a child couldn't reach a box to place a ticket into it. Instead of the adult getting the box down in our hands which many of us would do, the teacher moved the box to the edge of the shelf so the child could reach. They give each child just enough assistence so that the child still accomplishes on their own. This is excellent learnig and fabulous teaching. - Dr.Robin Norris, LMFT
