With a growing focus on STEM education in schools and careers in math and science, a solid grounding in mathematics is more important than ever for your child. A strong foundation requires a skilled teacher. Sadly, however, supply has not yet caught up to demand when it comes to consistent, reliable math and science instruction in schools. How can you ensure your child is acquiring the math skills they need to stay ahead and not fall behind?
Mathnasium of New Haven, located in Woodbridge, Connecticut, focuses solely on math tutoring and exclusively employs the Mathnasium Method, to great effect. Developed over the course of decades by teacher Larry Martinek, the Mathnasium Method is based on the belief that any child can succeed in math if the material is made accessible to them. Not every child learns in the same way, so different tactics will work with certain students.
The Mathnasium Method acknowledges that essential math concepts build on each other. Therefore, if a child is shaky on any one topic, the entire infrastructure is compromised, leading to an erosion of confidence and impaired math skills.
Students may feel insecure about a specific subject and even recognize the gaps in their learning, but they may also feel the burden is on them to compensate.
As this weak spot is resurfaced in subsequent math classes, with concepts building on top of each other, students can become increasingly stressed by gaps in their own understanding and express their frustration as a general distaste for the subject.
This trajectory can be corrected, however, through math tutoring. Students who work with Mathnasium of New Haven start out with an assessment to pinpoint deficiencies in their understanding of core mathematical concepts. The Mathnasium team will then develop a personalized plan for your child to address those areas. A team of math tutors will work one-on-one with your child to find the explanation of what make the concept “click” for them, and they’ll continue to build from there.
Through the help of math tutors at Mathnasium of New Haven, mathematics can be made accessible, enjoyable, and achievable for everyone. Prioritize your child’s understanding of mathematics by enrolling them in a math tutoring program today. For more information, email Mathnasium of New Haven or call (203) 298-4158.
