A Chat with Mathnasium of Portsmouth
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Over the last 40 years, Mathnasium has developed a specialized curriculum and proven methodology to help students in grades 2-12 better grasp mathematical concepts. Whether your student is looking for support or enrichment, we can help. Fully aligned with Common Core.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide all required materials. With the use of an evaluation, we pinpoint areas of strength and weakness and establish a starting point for instruction. We build a custom curriculum for each student.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Kids don’t hate math—they hate being intimidated, embarrassed, and confused by it. I wanted to provide some support for students who fit this mold and enrichment for those who want to get ahead. Without a strong foundation in mathematics, all students will be at a disadvantage in the future.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to watch the students’ confidence and attitude towards math improve and the grades go up accordingly. We have built a safe, encouraging, and fun environment that does not feel like math class.
