ATASCADERO — Mathnasium of Atascadero is now open for business, bringing effective and fun math learning programs for the Atascadero children in grades 2 through 9. The learning center, located at 4071 El Camino Real in Atascadero, focuses solely on math and operates on the core belief that virtually any child can excel in mathematics.

Mathnasium is recognized worldwide as a leader in teaching mathematics to elementary, middle, and high school students. It is a unique program that provides each child with a customized learning plan and personalized instruction in a way that makes sense to them. Students receive the fundamental theory and practice they need to master number facts, build computational skills, and improve number sense, i.e., an intuitive understanding of how numbers work.

“Our goal is simple: to teach math in a way that makes sense to kids. Mathnasium centers across the country are helping struggling students develop into ‘A’ students, and ‘A’ students go on to even greater achievements. We are thrilled to be able to bring our Mathnasium Method™ to support the families of Atascadero,” said Michael Rosen, Director/co–Owner of Mathnasium of Atascadero. “We help kids to catch up, keep up, get ahead, and stay ahead in math.”


The Mathnasium experience begins with an assessment to pinpoint a child’s strengths and weaknesses. These results provide the foundation from which Mathnasium constructs each student’s customized learning plan. Students learn math in a friendly, productive learning environment, with caring and knowledgeable instructors well-versed in integrating Mathnasium’s techniques with the math curriculum used in Atascadero schools to teach your child. The Mathnasium Method™ uses a unique combination of mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written procedures to help children understand math and has been developed over more than 45 years of practical experience with thousands of students.

Mathnasium Centers have an instructor-student ratio of 4 to 1, whereas most schools have a teacher-student ratio of 30 to 1. Mathnasium students receive the support they need for school homework and tests while building their math foundations. As educators, Mathnasium strives to offer Atascadero students a balanced math learning experience that fills in the gaps, keeps students on track with math taught in school, and, most importantly, makes learning math a fun and joyful experience.
