At Mathnasium, we help kids understand math by teaching the way that makes sense to them. Children who consistently attend sessions at our learning centres enjoy a transformative learning experience and make huge strides in the classroom.
Attitude: When math makes sense, kids develop a more positive attitude toward math.
Understanding: Mathnasium teaches for understanding, giving students the ability to succeed in any math environment. As Larry Martinek, Mathnasium’s Chief Instructional Officer notes, “It's pretty easy to forget things you memorize and near impossible to forget things you understand."
School Progress: When kids learn math in a way that they truly understand, they achieve greater success in the classroom.

This was a great experience for my son. He did fine in math at school but not as well as he is capable of. He needed to build his confidence in his skills and also to learn to focus and read the questions properly to know what they were actually asking. The staff and the atmosphere made him feel comfortable to ask questions and not feel pressure. He was quite proud to show me what he had been working on when I came to pick him up. I think his time at mathnasium has definitely helped with confidence, we'll have to wait til school is back in to see how he transfers what he has learned. The only reason I don't rate mathnasium a 10 is because of the hours. Fridays and Saturdays are probably the best days for me to bring him because we aren't loaded down with other obligations but unfortunately they aren't open.

We have had a wonderful experience at mathnasium . Our daughters confidence improved greatly, as did her attitude toward math. Her grades even improved the first month!

I am really impressed with the rapport that Joe, the owner, has with each kid. Once I get my son there, I never hear any complaints which is saying a lot. He is finally starting to work independently but I can see the staff are good about knowing to check in with him.

My son is in grade three and needed some help with the basics. It has only been a few weeks but we can already see an improvement. Owen loves going to Mathnasium. He has a lot of fun and finds the practice rewarding. I think the one on one attention makes him feel special and supported. Joe is really great - he is very friendly and engaging with the kids. I love the flexibility of the drop in as well.
