Attitude: When maths makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward maths.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any maths environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorise and near impossible to forget things you understand."

Children who consistently attend our learning centres enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.

Early days but our child Is enjoying it, and looks forward to going. Well done making maths fun. The membership is quite expensive but will be worth it if we can make enough of the sessions and our child improves his school grades, which we are confident he will.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can my child really become a natural mathematical thinker?
To become great at things like sports, music, and art, you need to be born with natural ability. What does it feel like to be "a natural" at something? It's empowering. It develops self-confidence. It makes you feel special.
It's commonly believed that you need to be born "a natural" to become great at maths. But at Mathnasium, we believe that virtually any child can become great at maths. For many kids, maths is something that doesn't come naturally, but they can be taught to think in the ways that the naturals do. When it comes to math, your child can feel empowered, self-confident, and special.
When you learn to think like a natural... you can become one!
How can Mathnasium change the ways in which my child thinks?
We teach our students to use efficient and reliable “schema”– organized ways of thinking – that are innate to the mathematically gifted among us. Mathnasium instructors deliver excellent instruction that is driven by our top-notch curriculum materials. These materials are carefully selected for students to encounter when the appropriate prerequisite knowledge is in place. Through this process, our students develop strong mental math and written computational skills, along with the reasoning ability to know which skills serve them best in any given situation.
Why is Mathnasium better for my child than an independent private tutor?
Mathnasium is structured as a learning center rather than a tutorial service. While a tutor helps students get through “tonight’s homework,” our primary role as a learning center is to uncover and directly address gaps in students’ knowledge that are the underlying causes of their current difficulties in school. Since maths is a cumulative subject, it is extremely important to make sure that students have mastery of prerequisite knowledge from previous Years if they are going to have success in their current Year and beyond.
Do students truly enjoy coming to Mathnasium?
Mathnasium students enjoy attending their sessions, and parents frequently ask us to explain what we are doing to make that happen! While there are many contributing factors, the primary reason is that Mathnasium students are significantly gaining self-confidence due to their improving math abilities. Our students often feel relieved that maths really can make sense, and they feel empowered to reach new heights that never before seemed possible.

Keith, Radlett, United Kingdom
"When we moved countries, my 8 year old son was not coping with his maths curriculum at his new school. It was a daily struggle to do homework and there were many tears. We started him at Mathnasium and have not looked back. He now loves maths, can participate in class and do his homework. More importantly, his confidence has improved which makes him happier at school.
The team at Mathnasium welcomed him with open arms. They are friendly, supportive and make maths fun, my son just loves going to his extra lessons. As a mum of 2 young children, I would recommend Mathnasium for all children even if they are doing well at school because Mathnasium teaches the children how to truly understand maths."
