Where our story began...

In 2002 we had just one Mathnasium center in Los Angeles, California. Today we have 750+ locations and are teaching children in communities across America and in countries around the world, providing neighborhood environments where humanity combines with math expertise.

Demand: Math not making sense is a universal problem


Math teaches thinking skills and problem solving which will become increasingly vital in future work and daily life. There are currently more than 50 million students in the U.S. and two-thirds of them score below average in math. The bottom line: students everywhere need help with math at one time or another – more help than they’re getting in school.

The right instruction makes all the difference

The strength of the Mathnasium Method™ lies in its individualized approach. As no two students come to us at the same skill level, our approach includes a personal skills assessment designed to tell us where strengths and weaknesses lie for each student. We meet them right where they are and move forward from there.

Support: We want to teach you the business

If you don’t have a teaching background, you can still excel as a Mathnasium franchisee. In fact, the backgrounds of our ideal franchisees vary greatly – from engineers and accountants to teachers and homemakers, and everything in between. Mathnasium franchise training was designed to level the playing field. We teach you all that you need to know about running a business that deals with math instruction.
