My son loves math and is excited about the material Mathnasium has shown him. He does not need any motivation to learn new math concepts, but the reward system Mathnasium has set up makes his time at the center even more like a game.
Amelia loves going to Mathnasium- she can work at her own pace, gets help if she needs, and enjoys the challenge of learning new concepts. You make it easy for the kids to feel comfortable. I like the open hours too!
My child is still new to the program so time will tell. That being said, she seems much more committed to mastering algebra and improving her math skills. Mathnasuism has provided a structure and hopefully a long term commitment to mastering math skills.
I have referred friends to Mathnasium so that speaks for itself :). However, I think they could do a better job making sure kids are doing well with the math they are learning in class (as well as Mathnasmium's curriculum). Hopefully students feel welcomed to get homework help at Mathnasium (one of the main reason we signed up) but my child sometimes isn't comfortable doing this.
