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 manage 5 locations in the U.S., we specialize in teaching math grades K-12 with the time-tested, proprietary Mathnasium Method™. Your child receives personalized instruction and customized learning plans based on their unique needs and goals.
