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.
