Dan and Michael
If your children are struggling with maths, transformative tuition with proven results is now available…
‘We believe that every child can succeed in maths using our tried and tested methodology,’ says Dan Tregoning, franchisee of the newly opened Mathnasium Centre on Fulham Road. ‘It is a matter of teaching the subject in a way that makes sense to them as individuals.’
With nearly 1,200 centres worldwide, the Mathnasium method has been changing lives through maths for almost 20 years. ‘We teach children aged 6-16,’ adds Centre Manager, Michael Chitty. ‘The first step for any prospective student is to take a free diagnostic assessment; that enables us to pinpoint what they know, but more importantly, what they don’t know. We then design a customised learning plan to teach the concepts the student needs to master. The results are remarkable – students will see measurable changes in attitude, confidence and school progress.’
Mathnasium operates like a gym, with parents subscribing on a monthly basis. Students attend as many times as they like, whenever they like. Each session lasts between an hour and an hour and a half, with a recommendation of two to four sessions a week. There is no need to book in advance giving parents full flexibility.
The approach is based on individualised learning in a friendly environment. ‘We aim to operate on ratios of between one instructor to three to four students, whether they are looking to catch up, keep up or get ahead with their maths,’ says Michael. ‘Whilst we don’t set homework, we assist our students with school assignments. We also offer specialist test preparation, tailoring our teaching to assist with 11+, scholarships and GCSE exams.’
Mathnasium has strict criteria for hiring instructors. ‘Of course, they must be exceptional at maths,’ explains Dan. ‘But, equally important is the ability to inspire and communicate with students. So far we’ve had wonderful feedback, in fact some children have been asking to come more often!’
And should a little extra encouragement be needed, Mathnasium has a reward for achievement policy, with toys ranging from Lego to drones and even an iPhone. ‘Of course, the phone takes hard work and outstanding results,’ smiles Michael.
