The Opportunity

With more than 700+ centers – and an average of two more opening each week – Mathnasium is rapidly growing around the world. That’s because we are passionate about what we do. It’s also because our franchise combines all of the factors experts agree are critical to maximize your probability of success: Exceptional market demand, a superior product, the right people and support along with a proven track record. Becoming a Mathnasium franchisee is an opportunity to truly love what you do.

About Us

Where our story began…

In 2002 we had just one Mathnasium center in Los Angeles, California. Today we have over 700+ locations and are teaching children in communities across America and in countries around the world, providing neighborhood environments where humanity combines with math expertise.


Math not making sense is a universal problem

Mathnasium 91

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 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.

Mathnasium firmly believes that any kid can be good in math. Different from physical limitations, which might prevent a child from excelling in sports or the arts, a majority of children possess the ability to understand the relationship between numbers. They just need the right instruction – they need to be taught math the way that makes sense to them.

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.


We want to teach you the business

Mathnasium 92

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.

Initial Franchise Training

Once you sign on as a franchisee, you’ll gain access to more than 50 hours of online training. You’ll also spend a full week with us in Los Angeles, CA at Mathnasium’s corporate headquarters. Here you’ll learn financial planning for your franchise and take education courses in the Mathnasium Method™.

Throughout the life of your franchise agreement, support will be there whenever you need it. From Start-up Specialists (SUS) and Field Business Consultants (FBC) to regional training and annual conventions, you’ll have everything you need to grow and maintain your business.

Interview with Mathnasium

How do I find out if I qualify to become a Mathnasium franchisee?

Mathnasium is an international chain of year-round learning centers where children go to improve their math skills. We are highly specialized; we teach only math. Each franchised center utilizes the Mathnasium Method, an individually customizable educational curriculum that has been created through over 35 years of classroom experience and research. Its goal: teach children math in a way that makes sense to them.

Mathnasium centers are open to members at least five times per week during after-school and weekend hours and children are encouraged to attend twice weekly for best results. Using the Team Teaching technique along with over 17,000 custom worksheets covering topics from pre-K to pre-calculus, Mathnasium has been making a difference in the lives of children since 2003 when we opened our first center. Today, we have more than 700 thriving centers across the globe... and we are continuing to grow at a pace of nearly 2 new centers each week.

What is a Mathnasium franchise?

A Mathnasium franchise enables you to own your own Mathnasium Learning Center in your community to help children from pre-K to pre-calculus boost their math skills. We teach you the business and grant you a license to use the Mathnasium name and Mathnasium business system, and we require you to implement the business system according to our standard of excellence. The system includes:

  • An education system – so you know what to teach and how to teach
  • A marketing system – to help you attract students to your center
  • A financial system – for collecting fees, paying bills, financial reports, etc.
  • An operations system – for daily management and administration

What advantages does Mathnasium offer that other franchisors might not?

Most of our franchisees tell us that an important factor for them in choosing Mathnasium is the nature of the work. They want a personally fulfilling venture as well as a financial opportunity. They want to enjoy what they do and they want to look forward to going to work every day.

Additionally, our franchisees want to own a business that makes a real difference. They work better when they are passionate about what they do. Also, Mathnasium franchisees have found fundamental flaws with other education franchisors, including one or more of the following: high initial fees, exorbitant royalties, huge investment costs, unfair territories, complicated business models and multiple subjects instead of our focused math-only approach. These flaws can diminish results for the children, and diminish the value to their parents.

Mathnasium has the independent research that shows superior results from our teaching methodology, and we deliver these results every day. Mathnasium franchisees also tell us they care about the company and the franchisee community they are joining. They like being part of a franchisor/franchisee community of accomplished and caring individuals. Everyone from our franchisees to our executive team is in alignment: We all want to help children succeed in math.

What type of training does Mathnasium provide?

You will start with 40 to 50 hours of online interactive training. This is done in the comfort of your home and will prepare you for Mathnasium’s one-week Initial Training program in Los Angeles, which includes both classroom and interactive training. Our comprehensive and proven franchisee education program will cover step-by-step use of the operations manual and all the areas important to your success as a franchise owner.

Most importantly, you will be trained and supported on an ongoing basis by our dedicated franchise support team who will be there when you need help. The cost of this initial training is included in your franchise fee. You will be responsible only for your travel expenses. Before opening your Mathnasium Learning Center, you will also have the opportunity to take part in our Apprenticeship program where you will spend one week working hands on in a top performing center in Los Angeles.

Do I have to teach children myself?

As a Mathnasium franchisee, you are only required to personally participate in the management and operation of your center(s). However, our goal is to make you comfortable with overseeing all aspects of running the center-including working with children. Any business operates better if you’re hands-on. Your plan will include hiring instructors on an as-needed basis as your enrollment increases, but you should be willing to invest your time and energy in all functions of the center, including teaching as needed.

How are Mathnasium center operators supported?

Our goal is to help you to launch your center speedily, comfortably, and confidently. You’ll receive thorough initial training to prepare you to open your center. On an ongoing basis, we’ll be available to answer questions, and if you have a problem, we’ll try to help you solve it.

We have a comprehensive ongoing support program that includes:

  • Franchise Business Consultant performance coaching program
  • Tune-up training sessions
  • Conventions
  • Individual and group telephone conferences
  • Email Q & A
  • In-person consultation and meetings as necessary
  • Timely distribution of marketing and operations materials
  • Mathnasium Matters, a continually updated blog that covers everything Mathnasium
  • Mathnasium University, an online educational resource for operators to upgrade their own franchise knowledge set, at times that best fit their lifestyle

Together, these support services not only provide stability for new franchisees, but also allow easy access to strategies for continued improvement.
