Albert Einstein once said, “Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.” Even the greatest mathematical minds reach points of frustration when it comes to making math make sense. That is exactly what instructors at Mathnasium strive to do, make math make sense. Whether a student is struggling to catch up or yearning to be pushed to greater challenges, Mathnasium provides customized curriculum to eliminate the frustration, increase student confidence and ignite a passion for learning.

With the start of a new school year comes a new year of challenges for all students. Some parents may hear a familiar mantra at homework time, “I hate math.” Kids don’t hate math. Students that are struggling with math hate feeling frustrated and confused. Those that excel in math may not be able to delve as deeply into the subject as they’d like or have a desire to be challenged more. Mathnasium will meet each student where they are, bridging those gaps for those who are struggling and challenging those preparing for more advanced classes.

Mathnasium’s unique system provides a strong mathematical foundation by identifying students’ current skill level and helping them propel forward by teaching them math in a way that makes sense to them. There is often a disconnect between students’ learning skills and curriculum they are expected to master. This is a concept Mathnasium Method creator Larry Martinek identified more than 40 years ago. A teacher himself and a father to a mathematically gifted son, he wanted to help students, both gifted and frustrated, to succeed. What formed was a system not based on memorization of facts and formulas, but an approach that builds a deeper mathematical understanding. Students with noticeable gaps in learning may seem obvious candidates for help but just because a child is an A/B student doesn’t necessarily mean there are no gaps in understanding. Bridging those gaps and gaining that confidence is important for all students.

Getting that help is simple. Students or parents can do a quick five question assessment online (whether they are struggling or advanced learners.) If Mathnasium seems like a good fit, an appointment to do an in-house, detailed assessment can be made, which allows instructors to customize a learning plan formulated on concepts needed to meet each child’s specific learning goals. Specially trained instructors then implement the plan; working with your child until they are able to master the material. Instructors want to be there when the learning happens, they don’t assign additional homework, and they provide an encouraging environment where your kids feel motivated and confident so they can learn. Homework help is also provided, helping students turn what was once a frustration into a welcome challenge they can conquer with confidence. For older students, they also offer ACT/SAT math prep, helping students see impressive improvements in math scores.

Watching your child’s confidence blossom in math will undoubtedly trickle over into all areas of their academics. What better gift to give them as they tackle the new school year than the ability to believe in their own abilities? Go online, take the five question survey or just give them a call – the only thing your child stands to lose is frustration, and that is a huge gain!
