Math Making Sense

Mathnasium Scripps Ranch Helps Students Succeed in Math

Making math make sense is the goal at Mathnasium. Going far beyond traditional tutoring models, students at Mathnasium are taught in a way that makes sense to them through the creation of individualized learning plans and one-on-one instruction. By combining this personalized learning with an encouraging, fun environment, students at Mathnasium are able to make great strides, whether it is to catch up, keep up, or get ahead.

“The goal at Mathnasium is to help build student’s confidence in math,” explained Archi Kapoor, Center Director. “Whether your child is far behind or is already succeeding in math, Mathnasium offers the tools that enable a student to leap ahead.”

Students are welcome to start at Mathnasium any time of the year. Due to the individualized nature of the program, Mathnasium can accommodate a variety of schedules. “Because it’s not a group class, you can schedule your sessions around your work and school schedules,” Archi said. Each session lasts an hour, and sessions are offered after school on weekdays and mornings on Saturdays.

“It’s a relaxed and nurturing environment for kids to catch up or prepare for upcoming concepts.”

Each session focuses on the student’s specific needs and utilizes the proven Mathnasium Method™. “It’s a relaxed and nurturing environment for kids to catch up or prepare for upcoming concepts,” Archi said. The students work one-on-one with an instructor, who all have degrees in math, computer science, or engineering and at least two to three years of teaching and tutoring experience. The instructors work with students on Mathnasium material and school homework to teach the foundations and then finish each session with interactive math games to promote students’ strategic thinking and logic. Additional sessions focus on getting students ready for quizzes and tests at school. The goal at Mathnasium is to build a strong support system for all students. This is done through frequent communications with the students, parents, and math teachers at school. This three-way partnership is the key in helping students succeed in math.

When a student first begins at Mathnasium, an initial assessment is scheduled and then reviewed with the parents. From there, the Mathnasium professionals create an individualized learning plan based on the assessment results. The student works towards their personalized goals and is provided a post assessment when the learning plan is completed.

“Mathnasium knows that every child can be successful in math; it’s a matter of teaching it in a way that makes sense to them,” Archi acknowledged. “The instructional approach goes beyond traditional math tutoring to develop understanding and to build a love for math.”
