Mathnasium opens in Mercer Island

Mathnasium, a math-only learning center, opened on Mercer Island in February to teach kids math in a way that makes sense to them. The center helps any child regardless of skill level, behind or advanced.

The specially trained math instructors will teach children how to understand math in a caring, encouraging environment.

According to the Mathnasium of Mercer Island’s website, its “unique approach enables [them] to effectively explain math concepts and lend a helping hand to every student.”

Mathnasium instructors use an assessment process to determine each student’s learning needs. From there, they design a customized learning plan for teaching concepts, and ensure the student masters the material.

Mathnasium doesn’t assign homework, but rather provides school homework help to each student. The learning center has flexible attendance and offers year-round program memberships that can start at any time.

“Students work in different ways, some need more time, others are ready for a challenge and some just need another teaching approach,” said owner Husam Gazioglu. “At Mathnasium, that’s what we do. Whatever it takes for the student to learn, we’ll do that.”

Mathnasium is located downtown at 2448 76th Ave. SE, #101B. It is open from 3-7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 2-7 p.m. Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Currently running a grand opening special, Mathnasium is offering a free month of tuition for the first 25 students that sign up for an enrollment of more than six months.
