About Us

Where our story began…

In 2002, we had just one Mathnasium centre in Los Angeles, California. Today we have over 750 locations and are teaching children in communities across North America and in countries around the world, providing neighbourhood environments where humanity combines with math expertise. In 2014-2016 we posted double digit growth in per unit average gross sales for three consecutive years*. We are recognized as an excellent franchise opportunity. In addition to reaching #3 in the Forbes Fastest Growing Franchises (under $150,000 USD) list, Entrepreneur Magazine lists us as #44 in the 2017 Top 500 Franchises and we are included in the 2016 Franchise Direct Top 100.

Demand

Math not making sense is a universal problem

Math teaches thinking skills and problem solving which are becoming increasingly vital in future work and daily life. Over two-thirds of Canadian students in grades K-12 score below average in math. Poor numeracy skills have become such an issue that many Provincial governments are running nationwide initiatives to improve the quality of math education. The bottom line: There is no better time than now to launch a Mathnasium Centre as the entire country is focused on improving numeracy.

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.


Support

We want to teach you the business

If you don’t have a teaching background, you can still excel as a Mathnasium franchisee.

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 about 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 Field Business Consultants (FBC) to regional training and annual conventions, you’ll have everything you need to grow and maintain your business.
