Ben has really enjoyed going to Mathnasium, which I have to say is surprising to me considering his attitude towards math. He is starting to gain confidence and that carries over into all of his other subjects at school. We would definitely recommend this program!
Actual quotes from my teenage daughter...
Pre-Mathnasium: "I'm not against going to Mathnasium."
First day: "I don't want to be here."
Been attending for almost two weeks: "Yes, I like it better than math class at school! WAY better!"
Other comments since then: "Can we go more than three times a week?" "I like going there; it's fun!"
My daughter now sets goals for *herself* and strives to really comprehend the material that has given her trouble in the past. She looks forward to her Mastery Checks and having the chance to ring the bell and get a red ticket! It doesn't hurt that the instructors form their own unique relationships with the students and are not just a "math tutor" in their lives.
Our daughter Avery really enjoys Mathnasium. The atmosphere is great and she really enjoys coming. When we first told her she was going, she was upset, but after the first session she looks forward to going every week and we are excited she is loving to learn math.
So far my daughter is making progress and feels as though she is understanding some concepts that have been blurry for her over the years, so we are excited for the progress and looking forward to more growth over the year.
Leah has been tutored in a way that she has gained a foundation on which to learn more complex math skills. Self-confidence is another benefit from the experience, along with gaining mentors whom she really connect with personally. Thank you for being more than a math program.
Mathnasium has been a tremendous help to our daughter. The instructors are friendly and helpful. Our daughter has gained great confidence in herself and her abilities to make good grades in math. We appreciate all that they have done for us.
My son was not a struggling math student - he maintained a "B" average. I thought giving him a chance to have additional support as the math skills he was learning in school increased in difficulty, was a good idea. To date, he continues to look forward to going to Mathnasium. He really enjoys the environment and being able to interact with the teachers in a small group setting.
When I dropped my daughter off the first time she said to me, "I hate my life" When I picked her up when her session was over, she jumped in the car and said "That was fun!" Thank you for making learning for my daughter fun!
My son's grade and attitude have both dramatically improved! He's a straight A student...but failing math.
It's nice to hear him ask to go to the Mathnasium rather than sit at home playing video games, refusing to do his homework. He was so frustrated that he would literally pound his head on the table. Eventually, he would give up. Now he looks forward to it! This was the confidence kicker he needed and is trickling over into other areas of his life =)
It's been just over a month and we couldn't be happier with his progress.
