My daughter is very motivated and always seems to enjoy her time there and is gaining confidence in her math skills. I look forward to her catching up to her grade level and watching her apply her skills at school.
A great opportunity for kids to learn in a fun and focused environment with attention from instructors.
My only other comment would be that coming from a different center made it harder to transition since certain rewards were not consistent. My son responded well to spinning the wheel every session to earn stamps and receiving a sugar free lollipop during his session. ;)
Before starting at Mathnasium our daughter would come home crying because she just didn't understand the basic math concepts, now she is excited to do math. She came home the other day and was so proud that she was able to figure out a problem in class just by breaking it down and using the skills she as learned at Mathnasium.
The only thing that is frustrating as a parent using your services, is the operating hours on Saturdays. With only being open from 9-1 on Saturdays, it is a constant struggle with other weekend commitments. It would be helpful if the hours could be extended to mid afternoon, 3-4pm. Thanks.
My 4th grader has been going to Mathnasium for about 2 months and LOVES it. She asks to go everyday and is bummed when she can't go. They make learning fun and I am excited to see the progress she will make in the next few months
Mathnasium has provided a place where my daughter was able to learn and have fun with the learning. They are designed for the kids to go over the curriculum through problems, and afterwards, they are able to do games using their math skills. In addition, each time they complete the assignment page, they are rewarded with a punch on their punch card, which the kids can trade for the items they like. It is an incentive rewards that my daughter extremely enjoys.
Mathnasium provides an e-mail monthly review of what the type of math skills my daughter are currently doing, what had been completed, and what are yet to come. Nonetheless, they always welcome us to communicate through e-mail or face to face.
Mathnasium also provides flexibility where parents can comment on the curriculum/skills they need to go through; my daughter was doing great in catching up/for her to build the foundation skills, but we really need help for her to keep up with her grade level. Mathnasium worked with us and revised the curriculum per our request and continue to work with her in building a strong math foundation.
I am a person that likes to follow instructions. And having a curriculum that is proven to help designed specifically for each of my 2 kids is really reassuring that I don't have to stress about anything. The staff is super calm and helpful.
Mathnasium has taken the fight out of math homework for us. Not only are the kids learning math concepts but they also help check their homework to make sure they are staying on track in school. This has been the easiest school year so far when it comes to homework and test taking.
Rylee has drastically improved in math since last year. Last year I had to help her every night with homework and this year she completes all her homework by herself and has an A in math. It has mostly helped her gain confidence in herself to understand the basic concepts that she was missing.
I like the fact that you have quite a few instructors helping out the kids. My daughter seems to actually like going there, we are still getting used to it though, only been going about 5 weeks. Most of the instructors seem 'parent' friendly.
