The work my daughter works on at Mathnasium is specific to helping my daughter improve her understanding of the subject math which increases her enjoyment level, confidence and grades at school. We are very happy with her progression over the past 2 years
My son loves going to Mathnasium because Barindra and her staff have helped him develop a love for math. My son's words at age 8 were that "Mathnasium helps my confidence" in math and that "it helps me to be ahead of the game I instead of always feeling behind". In a subject the builds concept upon concept, it is important not to fall behind because it is so challenging to ever catch up and often children never catch up because they lack confidence in the subject. I registered my son so he would never have to feel that way.
The staff at Mathnasium is committed to helping my daughter learn math concepts and use several different ways to explain until it makes sense to her, instead of forcing her to learn only one way. This approach to learning math has been the key for her to finally feel confident in math.
Our son went from struggling in math in grade 3 to now getting straight A's in math in grade 5. He only went to Mathnasium for 6 months and it made a huge difference. Our daughter is in grade 2 and she is struggling too and we have signed her up. I don't know how they are teaching math in schools today but I am certain that Mathnasium have figured out a way to allow kids to understand math in a way that one usually only developed in adult hood long after school is over. I am also encouraged to see my kids looking forward to going and the incentive program including small rewards for work completed works great.
It's a measurable tutoring process. The staff assesses each students abilities and Tailors a program for each child. They will test children at intervals and progress can be measured based on the results. I highly recomend this affordable program.
