A Chat with Mathnasium The Math Learning Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
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 develop math problem-solving skills.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All assessment materials and instruction are provided. On average there is one instructor per three students. Students need to bring themselves and any math work they are struggling with or want to excel in.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
New owners Ken Pittman and Mark Jennings wanted to help find additional ways to help children improve themselves. We believe that children learning math at Mathnasium are more confident and less frustrated. This results in improvement not only in math skills, but frustration levels and mood as well.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing children go from “hating” math (or at least what they know of it) to the “lightbulb moments” where math begins making sense.
