Maths Tutor: Mathnasium of Chiswick – Solving The Maths Problem

Kristina, Celeste and Capucine

Mathnasium provides children with individually tailored teaching that you can count on

Emmanuelle Tsoulies was curious when she noticed that Mathnasium had opened on the High Road. It struck a chord with the Grove Park resident because SAT tests were looming for Celeste and Capucine, her 10 year-old non-identical twins.

‘According to their teachers, one of the girls was doing OK in class but lacked confidence in exams and the other was getting behind,’ recalls Emanuelle. ‘We popped in and talked to the Mathnasium team and they explained how their method worked and how it could provide extra support. We thought, why not try it for a month or so and see how it goes?’

The answer was, very well. ‘The teaching was individual and reassuring and the girls enjoyed it – in particular, they were super-excited by the reward system! They both scored an impressive 107 in their SATs and they still go three times a week. Mathnasium has now become part of our family routine. I’d happily recommended it to other parents.’

Devised by Larry Martinek, an experienced US teacher, Mathnasium has been transforming how children aged 5-16 learn maths for over a decade (there are nearly 1000 centres worldwide). ‘All new students take a customised assessment and that enables us to determine their level of knowledge and devise a personal learning plan,’ explains Kristina Peno, the Manager of the Chiswick centre. ‘Children learn at their own pace, the lessons are oneto- one and they are flexible for the parents – you don’t have to pre-book. We can help with homework and we specialise in preparation for 11+, scholarship and GCSE exams.

‘Of course, all our tutors are maths experts but, most importantly, they are patient, make the learning process fun and create a friendly, positive environment. Also, they are always on hand to check progress and ensure that information is understood and retained.’

Should a little extra encouragement be needed Mathnasium has a reward for achievement policy, with incentives ranging from slime and toys to an iPhone. ‘Of course, getting a phone takes hard work and outstanding results,’ smiles Kristina.’
