I am impressed by the teacher to student ratio. I cannot say that Lina loves to come there, but i don't think it has to do with your center, but with kids opposing anything that requires stamina. Still 1 hour a week she does and it is fine.
We have had great experiences with Mathnesium. My daughter was struggling in math and Mathneisum really helped her improve her grade. The tutoring provided the constant feedback and extra teaching that she needed. The fact that mathenisum is flexible with their tutoring schedule is very helpful for planning around family activities. Mathnesium also provides a report card that allows us to find out our daughters progress. We would highly recommend it!
My daughter said that going to Mathnesium has helped her and that is all I needed to hear. She is able to understand the concepts that her teacher could not explain that well. The tutors are great although for advanced Math in Highschool, there was only a couple of tutors who were really good at it. I am glad that most of the time, they were available for my daughter. It can be a bit noisy in the room though with little kids there too. I wish that the kids were divided by age and there is more room so that they can be separated, maybe small separate rooms for diff age groups and sessions.
I like the attentiveness of the Princeton Mathnasium owner (Jennifer) in listening to my concerns and quickly working to address. I also like the one on one or at most one:2 teacher student ratio. I like that there are assessments that try to determine mastery of skills and that the program is designed for students who already have a high aptitude in understanding math concepts as well as those that are struggling.
My daughter feels confident in the subject of math. She feels smart and knows that if ever a problem comes up she can figure it out with a little help and time. She doesn't score perfect scores on her tests (although she scores high scores) or grasps all math subjects with ease, but knows that with your help she can master them. Thank you!
I have recently needed to un-enroll my daughter from Mathnasium due to her tutoring schedule for her dyslexia. I will re-enroll her after the first of the year in Mathnasium for several reasons. 1) it's given her much more confidence in her own abilities 2) she is given homework help by tutors she trusts and 3). She loves it! The branch we used in Princeton is convenient and very accommodating of our crazy schedule. Once she has adjusted to her other tutoring - we will return to Mathnasium!
My child has always struggled with math and doesn't like it as a result. I like that the Mathnasium program helps him catch up on concepts he doesn't understand, providing a basis for success in the future.
