“Mathnasium was created to give all students an opportunity to dramatically increase their test scores, while developing the broad-based reasoning skills that are critical to ongoing academic success.”
Skokie, Ill. (PRWEB) March 5, 2010
Mathnasium Learning Center, an international franchise offering math-only, after-school educational programs, will soon open its first Chicago-area location in Skokie. This new center will provide a safe and supportive setting for grade-school students to develop much-needed math skills and to build confidence in their math-related abilities.
“Mathnasium curriculum has been designed to provide a challenging, engaging and dynamic learning experience that costs a fraction of the cost of private tutoring,” said Peter Markovitz, Mathnasium founder and president. “Mathnasium was created to give all students an opportunity to dramatically increase their test scores, while developing the broad-based reasoning skills that are critical to ongoing academic success.”
The Mathnasium Method™ is designed to address the individual needs of children of all ages and skill levels. As part of its proprietary and proven learning model, Mathnasium students are first assessed to identify their strengths and weaknesses. This baseline testing is then used to create a customized learning program tailored to strengthen weak areas and build on strengths.
The Mathnasium Method uses a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile and written techniques to help children understand math. The comprehensive curriculum also addresses attitude and self-esteem, with the goal of helping students to become better problem solvers and to develop a long-term understanding of mathematical concepts.
“Transforming children into powerful mathematicians is entirely doable,” said Berish Cardash, owner of the new Skokie Mathnasium Center. “It takes a skillful combination of the right method, the right curriculum and qualified teachers to make math fun and accessible to students. We are thrilled to bring that recipe for success to the Chicago area.”
Cardash is opening the Chicago-area’s first Mathnasium after spending more than a decade in administrative positions at a local college.
The Skokie Mathnasium center will open on March 1, 2010, at 3453 W. Dempster St. in Skokie, and enrollment will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once enrolled, children can attend the center’s after-school programs as often as they like, for one low monthly fee. With locations across the United States and around the world, the Mathnasium curriculum is based on over 30 years of hands-on experience with thousands of children.
The phone number for the Skokie Mathnasium is 847-677-MATH (6284).
