Mathnasium, a math learning center for kids from early childhood through high school will open at 212 S. Marion St. in Oak Park's Pleasant District this week.
Run by former Chicago Public School teacher Jana Frank, Mathnasium offers expert math tutoring services, custom learning plans and personalized instruction and homework help, according to the Mathnasium website.
Frank is a former Chicago Public School teacher with degrees in psychology, education and math and was selected to work under the University of Chicago's leading math professor to help students in Chicago's south side, according to the site.
With over 10 years of private tutoring experience with students of all ages and levels of ability, and over five years of experience in public schools, "Jana has developed a passion for creating math curriculum that focus on conceptual understanding and lasting fundamental knowledge rather than drill and memorization."
The Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce will hold its ribbon cutting for the business at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1.
