I feel that my daughter is pushed to figure out the math on her own as much as possible, but the tutors are very helpful in determining when she needs assistance as well. They aren't there to do her work for her in other words.
My daughter likes the environment and feels that the tutors are helpful and that everyone is very nice. When we starting going to Mathnasium, she had a "D" for the 4th quarter in math. The quarter had just started. At the end of the quarter, she had raised it to a "B" so I definitely feel that her hard work and the help Mathnasium gave her paid off. She struggled with the final and received a high "C" for the semester, but that final covered 3rd quarter and 4th quarter material, much of which was taught before we started working with Mathnasium.
Dave and his junior instructors are wonderful. The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. I like the fact that Mathnasium allot a time to work with the students school home work and then does the recommended math worksheets within the Mathnasium program to improve their math skills.
My daughter was in tears from frustration with her math homework. I called Mathnasium and David said bring her in now and we will help her. She got through her homework that night and has been signed up since and she looks forward to going to Mathnasium several times a week and has a much better understanding of her work and is doing better in her math class. Thanks so much to David and his team at Mathnasium!
After 6th grade my daughter was on an average grade point for school, moving on to jr high I thought she could use help in math since it is much harder. The test at Mathasium showed she was at a very low level and I enrolled her in 4 days a week immediately. My daughter loves math now enjoys going very much and has learned how to correctly understand math. I recommend Mathasium %100 and think every kid should learn math this way.
We are very pleased! Mathnasium has filled in a lot of the holes that our daughter had in her math skills foundation due to the school system skipping over or barely touching on certain math concepts. Her math skills are much stronger now. Due to her stronger foundation, she picks up new math skills faster now and she has a level of confidence in math that she did not have before. She enjoys math now and has even joined the math club at her school.
Not only does my son love going to Mathnasium, but I have seen a marked increase in his understanding of math concepts. After one month, he is more focused in math and doesn't dread math tests like he used to do. His grades have also improved, which has made him more confident.
