Though many students come to Mathnasium having fallen behind their classmates, a mathematically advanced child sparked the learning program’s creation. As founder Larry Martinek’s young son, Nic, developed an appetite for higher-level math concepts, Larry found himself developing an entirely new teaching language to explain them in an age-appropriate way. The kind of instincts he sought to build up couldn’t be nurtured by drills and rote memorization. Instead, they required a deeper understanding of the principles at the root of mathematical operations, delivered in a way that grade-school kids could apply throughout their academic careers.
In just a decade’s time, Larry and his team have established Mathnasium centers in most U.S. states and more than a dozen in other countries. At each, highly trained tutors develop custom learning plans for students in grades K–12 based on The Mathnasium Method. The system combines an education strategy of conceptual, tactile, and visual techniques with a curriculum structure that ensures kids can count, think proportionally, and tell the difference between a multiplication sign and a plus sign by scent alone. Tutors allow some time each session to help students with the concepts in their math homework, and the centers regularly check report cards and standardized tests as further measures of progress.
Throughout a lifetime of studies and travels, Bethany Miller of Doors of Success School of Etiquette has found that the value of proper etiquette remains constant. She prepares her students to sail smoothly through social situations by helping children master the skills of formal dining, adults tackle complex situations such as family gatherings, weddings, and hunting for a job, and teens learn why writing a thank-you note is important and how to be at ease in any social situation. In addition to her degree in elementary education, Miller is certified in etiquette training by the American School of Protocol.
