In the global tutoring industry that’s expected to reach $279 billion by 2027, Mathnasium is one of the most-affordable franchise opportunities out there.
In fact, you can be in business with Mathnasium for less than $150,000.
While estimates vary by where you live in the country, the total cost to open a Mathnasium center can be as low as just $112,860 and can range up to $148,655. This includes the franchise fee setting up a center, marketing campaigns, months of working capital, and other one-time expense.
The franchise fee to open a Mathnasium is $49,000, and this allows you to operate in an exclusive territory that has at least 2,500 children between the ages of 5 and 19 years old. In addition, your franchise fee gives you access to our world-class support platform, and includes initial training, ongoing coaching, comprehensive marketing support, and direct mentorship from a team that knows how to help you grow your business.
While Mathnasium doesn’t offer direct financing, we do have relationships with third-party lenders who can help you secure the funds necessary to open your new business.

Mathnasium’s business model is designed to be turnkey and straightforward with low ongoing costs. Our centers require a small footprint of about 1,200 square feet on average, which means that our franchisees are able to secure affordable lease agreements in high-end strip centers. Operating a Mathnasium requires only a small number of instructors to help your students, which keeps labor costs down, and because Mathnasium provides training for your instructors, as well as a proven curriculum, you can be assured that your students are in great hands.
The business model is built on multiple recurring revenue streams and now, Mathnasium franchisees are able to be profitable beyond their walls with Mathnasium@home, which is our state-of-the-art, one-on-one online tutoring platform. The simplicity, profit-potential, and ability to make a difference is exactly why so many of our franchisees have scaled up to multicenter ownership.
“There’s so much opportunity for our franchisees to do well in this business,” says Shant Assarian, CEO of Mathnasium. “Mathnasium franchisees are in businesses that make an incredible impact, and the demand for math tutoring has never been higher than it is right now. With prime real-estate opportunities coming online, now is a great time to invest in Mathnasium.”
