Dirk is an excellent teacher who has been extremely supportive in teaching our son. He is flexible and receptive to focusing upon math areas where our son needs tutoring, explanation, and numerical exercises to fill-in any gaps of knowledge...especially those revealed by school classroom performance
Mathnasium makes math fun for my daughter. It has given her confidence and has helped her begin to like math as a subject. We saw a difference in her school work immediately. Best part is a better attitude toward math!
My daughter, Samantha, loves going to Mathnasium to get the help she needs with concepts she doesn't grasp. My husband. and I used to take turns to try and help her but a lot of times it would not turn out so productive because of the power struggles..."that's not how the teacher showed it!" Dirk at Mathnasium is exceptional with all the students based on what I can hear from the waiting room. There's no more Math stress and I know she's only been there for a short time, I know she will improve her grade on the next quarter report card. I love the fact that they assess them initially and go over concepts she did poorly on so that she will actually know it next time she needs to use it. It's pricey but much cheaper than paying an hourly tutor...so worth the investment!!
We have had a great experience and Dirk is amazing. Our child went from a "D" math student to a "B" and she never complained about going to Mathnasium. We will be back if she needs it and I am grateful to Mathnasium for helping her understand and be more confident in her abilities.
My daughter likes that the tutors are young and she receives good thorough help from them. She responds well to the candy reward system! Most importantly, there has been a significant improvement in her math skills. She was struggling at school with her first ever C's and B's and now she is getting straight A's. Mathnasium is filling the gaps where she needs help and is giving her a complete foundation of undertanding. It has given back her confidence and she able to tackle harder math with a good attitude.
I wish (as does she) there was a science tutoring component as well!
My son has been struggling at school. Since coming to mathnasium I've seen a drastic change. He truly enjoys coming to mathnasium & has become interested in learning. This has translated into him also really enjoying his school work. I'm still waiting fyi see if this is a dream-no exaggeration!!
Mathnasium is a top notch educational facility that not only cares about your child's math scores but about your individual child. My daughter has been a member for over 2 years and continues to go not because the program doesn't work but because it DOES!
