The tutoring franchise is delighted to have launched a new Mathnasium location in Massachusetts and, since July, Mathnasium Longmeadow has been open for in-person classes.
Alison McDonough is the Centre Director for this branch of the tutoring franchise, and according to her, “The core philosophy of Mathnasium is to teach maths to children in a way that makes sense to them, so that they can understand it instead of just memorising a set of steps for a test and then forgetting it in a week.” This philosophy is exactly what Alison is focusing on as she successfully manages her location.
Alison went on to explain that Mathnasium, whether in the US or the UK, stands out from many other tutoring places because, “If you’re to hire an individual tutor [from a less dedicated company], they don’t necessarily have the resources to dig into exactly what’s going on in your child’s mind. A lot of tutoring is just triage. They’ll watch Bobby do his algebra problem, tell him if he’s doing a step wrong and then tell him how to do it right - but then they’re not really digging into where the conceptual disconnect is happening. [At Mathnasium], we’ll do the diagnostic work necessary to really find out what your child needs.
Alison believes that, “Kids think that they hate maths, but they really just hate being asked to do something that they don’t understand - they don’t know what the point of it is or why they’re doing it. I see tons of kids who come in and really open up and brighten up because they understand what they’re doing for the first time, and for the first time they feel smart doing maths.”
If you’d like to bring this feeling to children and help Mathnasium to expand its UK network, you can become a franchisee for a minimum initial investment of £30,000, with franchise fees of £29,500 and a total investment cost of £100,000.
