The demand for tutoring is exploding. According to ReportLinker, the global private tutoring market is expected to reach $279 billion by 2027.
The rise in demand can be attributed to many factors. Many parents see a rising competitiveness in university admissions and jobs, and they don’t want their children to fall behind. Others are looking to overcome setbacks in their children’s learning. In every case, as parents look ahead to the future, they want to be sure that their children are getting what they need to fill in any learning gaps, catch up, and get ahead in math.
Whether a student has fallen behind in math or needs more of a challenge to continue to excel, Mathnasium is the one place where their specific math needs are understood and met. We’re ready to meet the surging demand for math tutoring that has arisen for a multitude of reasons. Helping students fall in love with math is exactly what we’ve been doing for 20+ years in business.
Long before the pandemic, math was still the one subject that students struggled with the most.
The Regional Center for Educational Planning reported in 2018 that math was the subject in which most students took out-of-school lessons, and The Global Education Census Report by Cambridge Assessment International Education reported math was the most common privately tutored subject.
“I’ve been open for eight years, and every year has been better than the last,” says Lenny Christine, Mathnasium franchisee. “We’ve helped hundreds of students improve their lives, and that’s incredible. Parents will always want the best for their children, and we know how to help. I have so many examples of students who we’ve helped, and it’s so moving to be a part of their path to excellence.”
If you were to look at the best career options for students entering college today, going into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) would be at the top of the list.
The STEM fields provide far superior job prospects to students seeking to advance their quality of life and make a living doing something valuable. In fact, according to the National Society of High School Scholars, “Professionals who work in these fields also usually receive comparable compensation to their societal contributions, making STEM-related careers more popular as students seek economically stable career paths.”
For Cole Coates, a Mathnasium student for eight years, falling in love with math has allowed him to dream of a bright future in banking.
“I’m advanced in math,” Coates says. “Mathnasium has pushed me ahead and it’s made school way easier. I want a career in math, and it’s motivated me to think bigger. I feel way better about myself, and I feel way more confident in school. I’ve told so many of my friends to come to Mathnasium, and when they come, they love it. They’re much better at math.”
