Mathnasium’s one-on-one tutoring sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each student—from elementary to high-school age—and designed to elucidate equations and nurture number knowledge. First, aspiring arithmetists are issued inclusive written and oral evaluations to determine their comprehension of key mathematical concepts. Afterward, results are carefully crafted into a customized lesson plan, and made digestible by a multi-faceted education strategy, which incorporates a variety of learning techniques, including visual and tactile exercises. Fourth-graders feuding with fractions can crush their numerical nemeses with a newfound sense of self-esteem, while high schoolers struggling with the SAT can crack complex equations with sound analytical techniques and an extra-lucky no. 2 pencil filled with brain-stimulating nougat.
Students typically attend two to three hour-long sessions per week. In order to validate each student’s development, Mathnasium likes to see, and relies on, independent proofs of progress, such as school report cards and Einsteinian mustache growth. Mathnasium reports that third-party studies have shown consistent student improvements in 20 sessions or fewer, and an increased likelihood of spontaneous polynomial factoring.
