The tutors are very approachable & easy to work with. My son enjoyed his classes & we saw a turn around in his grades. He wasn't understanding his teacher but the tutors worked with him until he got it.
I like that there is a tutor and my son gets the personal attention he needs. They also have a lot of fun activities and goodies which is the main reason I am able to get my son to go . Of course the positive side effect is that his math skills have improved a great deal.
It has been extremely beneficial in filling in the gaps for our daughter who had a year of poor math instruction, in her past. She is now receiving an A in the quite challenging math curriculum at her current school. It has helped our other daughter by challenging her and moving her ahead of the math curriculum that is boring her at school. I feel she'll be more than ready for Honors and AP courses in high school.
The staff are working in a personal manner with the children so that they feel comfortable with the lessons. The lesson plan is personalized too so that my daughter learns what she needs to know and not a general textbook lesson.
Staff and management are extremely flexible, cooperative and accommodating in meeting kids needs and in helping each student address his or her special challenges. We noticed a direct improvement is our girls math test results after one term.
I really could see the value of Mathnasium and my son enjoyed the experience. I could see the hour he spent with the instructors made a big difference in his understanding of the materials being taught (that they have been working on the same material for months at his school and he was able to understand the concept in an hour at Mathnasium). Unfortunately, the cost is just too high for me to be able to afford continuing.
