The Math Tutoring Franchise Takes a Different Approach to Learning

Math doesn’t come easily to every student, and for many, it’s a constant source of struggle. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Shant Assarian, CEO of the Mathnasium math tutoring franchise. He says it’s hard to teach math in large groups. “Some of today’s middle school classes have 25 to 30 kids who are at all different levels. That scenario makes it challenging to teach and hard to learn.”

Once students fall behind in math, it’s hard to get back on track, but that’s where Mathnasium comes in. “The single most desired subject for tutoring is math,” says Assarian. “Even the smartest parents have a tough time teaching math in a way children can best comprehend it… They can’t always help their kids.” 

Making Math Fun

Mathnasium takes a different approach to teaching and learning math. “We make math fun and engaging. We want kids to come in and have a great experience instead of viewing math as a burden,” he says. “We take about five minutes out of sessions to play select games with kids that help reinforce the math concepts we’ve been teaching them.”

Even though today’s students have more digital resources at their disposal, Assarian says they just can’t replace human interaction. “Today’s teaching methods have injected a lot of noise around students that needs to be filtered out,” says Assarian. “The way you describe things to children really makes a difference.”

With technology playing a bigger role in the way we live and do business, math continues to be a sought-after skill. “Mathnasium helps children master math skills so they can succeed in the real world.” Assarian says the best part for franchise owners is seeing the progress children make. “There’s nothing more gratifying than seeing a kid go from struggling student to best in class.”
