Business Overview

Our Story

More than forty years ago, math educator Larry Martinek was inspired to find a better way to teach children math.   

As a classroom teacher, teacher-trainer, and consultant in public and  top private schools—and father to a mathematically gifted son—Larry    possessed a uniquely comprehensive view of education. He saw a troubling theme in mathematics instruction: a serious disconnect between the  students’ basic skills training and the curriculum they were expected to master in the years to come. They weren’t being prepared properly for  their future.  

Larry set out on a mission: to find an approach that would provide children with the strong foundation they needed to succeed. Over the next three decades, he painstakingly developed and assembled a blend of methods and materials. Instead of relying on traditional rote memorization and repetitive exercises, Larry’s work focused on helping    children understand math by honing their math instincts and getting  them to think like mathematicians.     

And it worked. As Larry’s innovations gained wide circulation over the years, Los Angeles schools began teaching from his materials   instead  of their textbooks. The result: Test scores skyrocketed. His work  evolved into a complete curriculum from pre-kindergarten to 12th   grade  math. 

Then, in the spring of 2002, education industry leaders Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his teaching  methodologies as  the Mathnasium Method™ at their first math learning  center in Westwood,  California. 

Students of all ages found the curriculum to be incredibly powerful  and engaging. As evidence of how effective it is, Mathnasium centers    have sprung up across North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.  Today, more than 40 years after Larry first developed it, the  Mathnasium Method™ is providing children all over the world increased confidence, critical thinking skills, and mathematical ability to last  a lifetime.     

Why Work With Us?

We specialize in math tutoring for grades K-12 using the time-tested, proprietary Mathnasium Method™. Your child receives personalized instruction and a customized learning plan based on their unique needs and goals.
