Mathnasium centers follow the unique method developed by Larry Martinek.
The Mathnasium Method
All our teachers in Dubai are thoroughly trained by specialized instructors with a long experience with Mathnasium method.
Our approach is to use sophisticated techniques to determine, with great accuracy, what your child knows and does not know.Next, we tailor-make a personalized and prescriptive learning program.
Each student follows the program with the help of specially trained Mathnasium math tutors who provide instruction—and lots of warm encouragement making the best after school activities Dubai kids love.
For proof of progress, we rely on the student’s report card, independent tests, and parent testimony to measure the speed and magnitude of improvement in math skills, numerical thinking, and attitude.
Comprehensive Written and Oral Evaluation
Mathnasium students are given a two-part diagnostic test.
The first is a written test designed to assess the student’s weakness with respect to grade-level material.
The second part is a series of oral questions, designed to assess the depth of the student’s understanding of key math concepts and skills.
Customized Program for Your Child
We use the results of our assessment to develop a learning plan and provide curriculum materials that cater to the unique needs of the student. Students receive one-on-one guidance from a qualified Mathnasium math tutor when they visit the center.
The curriculum focuses on primarily written materials and mental math, and includes manipulatives and other teaching tools when appropriate. Learning new concepts is balanced with practicing those that have already been learned. Kids usually “work out” twice a week for about an hour. The Mathnasium hour is designed to maintain a high level of attention from students, building confidence by covering areas in with the students is strong and areas of stretch. It is fun! – allows time for more relaxed approached to concepts.
Demonstrate and Measure Results
We believe your child’s progress (and improved attitude) will be obvious to you, the parent.
After 10 sessions, we reassess your child and show you quantitative improvement results.
But we also rely on third party proofs of progress: report cards and standardized assessments, provided by your child’s school.
