Meet Me on Monday - Featuring Mathnasium

Bridges_MondayBIOS_mathnasium.png

Every Monday, the Bridges introduces you to a new location and helps you get to know them a little better. This week, we are proud to feature Mathnasium. Mathnasium is owned by Matt and Susan Manes of Sioux Falls. They have been here since 2015 (they opened on “Pi Day,” which happens to be March 14. Here are a few fun things to do about this great asset to Sioux Falls.

MathnasiumFamilyPicture_crop.jpg

Why did you decide to come to the Bridges?

We were still living in Tennessee when we decided The Bridges was a perfect location for Mathnasium. Susan saw a friend from college post on Facebook about shopping at The Bridges and we both thought it looked like a great place that families enjoy. We then looked into the location further and knew it was a perfect fit with its convenient location and the opportunity to be neighbors with other small businesses.

You help kids maximize their math skills. How are you different than other methods?

We do our best to create a fun learning environment that breaks the stereotype that math is “boring” and something kids dread. We love hearing parents say their kids are asking to come to Mathnasium. We are locally owned but also part of the franchise, so students also get to learn using Mathnasium’s amazing curriculum that builds students’ confidence and makes parents’ lives easier.

What is one thing people don’t know about you that you would like them to know?

We are here to help students of all ages and abilities with math. We create a plan for each student, so we can help those who are behind or those who excel in math. Students who are ages 1st grade through 12th grade can be part of Mathnasium. We also have a great program for ACT and SAT math prep.

What are some ways you give back to the community?

We are always looking for ways we can support the local schools and teachers whether it’s donating classroom supplies, donating towards scholarships, encouraging teachers or being part of events at the schools.

What do you love most about owning a local business?

We love working together as a family and serving families of Sioux Falls. It gives us so much joy to get to know each family who is part of Mathnasium and see each student thrive.

What is your biggest challenge?

Many families don’t realize that they can join Mathnasium at any time and that we can help all levels of math ability. We do all we can to be flexible and accommodate the needs of each student.

How do you work to better serve your customers?

Parents and teachers work so hard to help their students and we do all we can to support them and listen to their feedback so we can help each student. We work hard to create an environment where each student feels valued and cared for and leaves with a greater confidence in their abilities.
