We are very happy to be sending our daughter to Mathnasium. I was initially worried that she would not be very receptive to attending math classes after school, and that I would essentially be 'dragging' her to classes. But I was pleasantly surprised at how pleased she was to attend her classes. She really looks forward to going, without any hesitation, and says that she feels calm when she is there. She enjoys earning her stars for work accomplished, and more so when she gets a prize for her many accumulated stars. The instructors are all great and inviting as well, and I can see her comfort as she walks right in, grabs her binder and sits right down to do her work. There is a lot to learn in math, so we look forward to using your services now and in the future!
Derek and the whole team at Mathnasium have been fantastic in the short time we've been taking our son there. I never thought our son would actually look forward to doing math homework after school, but he truly does! I tell everyone about our great experience.
I loved everything about Mathnasium except the cost structure. It was entirely too taxing on our family to come in 3 times a week...our minimum to make us feel like we were getting good value. Perhaps if my kid was failing grade 12 calculus I would have the motivation to have him there every day at which point it would be phenomenal value. But, for us where "grades" aren't a concern and our son is still young that intensity wasn't desired or feasible. It was a great confidence booster and a great focus on basics. Definitely helped but unless there is an option to pay for a group of "passes" that can be used whenever or a weekly option it's just not the right set up for us.
We just got back my daughter's report card (the first since joining). Instead of C's, she has A's - and it's in all subjects, not just math. Her confidence in math has spilled over into science, writing, and social studies. The other day, I even caught her making math equations so she could solve them.
Mathnasium was not a first choice for our daughter, but a friend recommended that our daughter goes there , the flexibility of going from 3:30 -7:30pm is convenient. The math instructors do have a passion in what they do. The choice was the correct one .
Thanks Mathnasium for the opportunity for giving our daughter the desire to exel in this subject.
My son has been going there for just over a month. He isn't always over enthusiastic about going, but always has good things to say ie: things are better explained etc. So far we are pleased with his overall progress :)
Constantino loves coming to Mathnasium. The staff are always very friendly. I also appreciate the regular feedback and written assessments. We look forward to continuing and will recommend to all of our friends.
Liam has improved so much in such a short amount of time. He is even doing well in his Grade 7 math class. His teacher told me that he can see Liam working out the problems using his skills learned at Mathnasium. It really is one of the best investments in Liam's education we have made.
Mathnasium has provided both of our children with the valuable learning tools to finally get a proper grasp on math, which in turn has boosted their confidence when it comes to math. Our daughter is achieving marks of 90+ in her grade 9 applied course and finally has confidence in her math skills...something that she has never had up to this point. Most of today's children lack the proper foundation in math that is required to get through high school and into university, and Mathnasium provides the proper learning tools to assist your child in achieving those goals. The owners and staff are great - always pleasant, always motivating and always patient.
