    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview

    Overall very friendly process, you come in for a test that should take about an hour or less than you talk with the manager (very conversational). Then they tell you the results of the test and if you get better than 80% you pass.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the questions on the test was a little tricky and may require extra room to work out by hand so feel free to ask for scratch paper.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Mathnasium (Piscataway, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    First they bring you in to take an assessment. There are two. One is basic math skills, mostly fractions, decimals, triangles, lines, algebra 2 word problems. Nothing past algebra 2. Then they gave me a second assessment where I had to grade a paper and explain how I would fix the students mistakes.

    The interview process was fairly. Just a few interview math problems, and then a math assessment to see if you qualify for the job. It is a math tutoring place after all.

    Pretty easy. Asked a few basic question, made you demonstrate how you would teach a child basic math concepts, then made you take an elementary level math quiz (asked about fractions, addition, subtraction, etc).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mathnasium (Johns Creek, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process was two steps. The first step was a math literacy test, and the second step was interacting with the kids. The test was 50 questions long it included basic arithmetic and algebra. There were questions on fractions, percentages, decimals, factoring algebraic expressions, algebra word problems, probability, finding the area of geometric shapes. When I went into the interview they did not mention anything about timing. However, they judge you heavily on how much time it takes you to complete the exam. They do not want you to go over an hour if you do it makes you look bad. Also, you are not able to use a calculator for the exam which was a huge disadvantage to me. I was doing long multiplication such as the quadratic formula by hand with big numbers. The test questions were not difficult, but they were tedious. Do not just learn how to do the problems, but learn how to do them in the shortest time possible without having to do the work.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a question (not the exact wording of the question) about if you mix a solution containing 30% juice and another solution containing 20% juice and you mix it together to form a solution that is 100 gallons and is 12% juice. How much of the 30% juice was added?

      What is 2/5% of 700?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mathnasium (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Had previously applied a few summers ago and heard back immediately that my schedule didn't fit. Applied again when I had better availability. Waited almost a week and a half to hear back to schedule the fluency test. Test was much harder than I anticipated (couldn't remember some of the formulas/concepts). After taking the test was told that I would hear back in a few days about how well I did. Two weeks later received a generic email that they went with another candidate.

    Interview

    Asked questions about my experience working with children, any prior tutoring or teaching experience. Then you take a basic math test, which is pretty simple. They also had me come in for a day and watched me interact with the kids and judged my teaching abilities.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview

    I walked in, introduced myself and said I was going to be there for a math literacy test. They gave me a test that was a little harder than I thought it was going to be. It was a bit harder because I had not done this type of math so I feel like I overcomplicated some of the concepts. The test will probably take people an hour to an hour and a half. I would practice and warm up on some concepts if you haven't K-8 math in a long time.
