By the 2nd grade it was obvious to me that my grandson needed more help in math than my husband and I were able to provide. The basic 1+1=2 format of the 1960’s was no longer relevant. Helping him with “simple” 2nd grade math, became frustrating for him and me, despite my doctorate level education 😮. After researching the options available, I enrolled him in Mathnasium in July 2018. The two things that persuaded me most where the fact that all work was done at the center, rather than work sheets sent home. By this time, I didn’t want anything to do with interacting with my beloved grandson and the dreaded mathematics. Secondly, the confidence that the owner, Kimberly Smith, engendered. After we enrolled, I was initially concerned by the setting. Specifically, the open room with multiple people interacting caused an ambient noise level that I thought would be too distracting for him. I soon realized that this more adequately reflected the classroom environment than sitting in a “quiet” place. Secondly, rather than having a “designated” tutor, he rotated between different instructors. I soon found this to also be a strength. They were all on the same page, metaphorically speaking, but brought the uniqueness of their individual styles. The change in his math grades and attitude where not magically improved overnight, but definitely within a very reasonable period of time. I also appreciated that I could sit on the sidelines and observe. I soon witnessed something I had never seen before; correct answers to math questions and even an occasional smile and laughter. Great staff and worth every dollar!
I had a child go to Mathnasium years ago that benefited greatly from her experience. I now have another child that’s needs additional help and he has loved it since day one. I love the student to instructor ratios and the program overall.
My daughter hated math! She was very discouraged and was so mad I signed her up!. After the first day, I never had one complaint... she is gaining confidence and doesn't mind going to tutoring. She is little by little filling in the missing pieces. It's such a turn around for her and math doesn't cause har so much turmoil any more. The staff is amazing, you have made such a difference, not just in her life but in our family's ❤ Thank you dio much!
We had a great experience & it was very helpful we will return. The only reason we stopped was due to other school obligations getting in the way. The tutors were attentive and helpful, it was great to have a variety since teaching style can differ.
Mathnasium has been very helpful to both my children. They allow them to work at a comfortable pace that meets their needs. They are more confident in math and they are maintaining A and B grades in their math classes.
