Boerne Lifestyle Magazine sat down to talk with Meghan Hunter, owner of Mathnasium, located at 1430 South Main #107. We were eager to hear about her experiences as a business owner and tutor and were thrilled to learn more about what inspired her to give back to her community. Ms. Hunter can be reached at (830) 331-8414. For information about the franchise go to:

Why did you choose to become a tutor? It's always been my goal to open a business that services children in a smaller community. I love working with kids. I am a certified 4th grade teacher, mother and PTO-PTA chair member.

What do you consider to be your greatest strength? Providing great service and making sure everyone feels welcome. Getting to know the parents and building relationships. I assist in building the students’ confidence and make math make sense.

How do you deal with a parent who is in denial to address learning problems in their child? Kids take a skills-based assessment to refer back to the parents. Most parents are pretty aware of where their child is academically. Administering an assessment on each child helps us break it down better so that they feel more comfortable. The assessment is not timed. Parents’ involvement in education and with teachers provides enrichment, and support.

Do you offer year-round programs and how much does the tutoring cost? I offer a Tuesday/Wednesday package during the summer between the hours of 1:00 and 7:00 p.m. Monthly memberships are flexible at $240 for twice a week sessions. During the school year on Mondays through Thursdays we offer sessions from 3:00 until 7:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Individual plan ratio is two to four students to one instructor. We also offer on-line tutoring sessions.

What do the tutors provide to students who just don’t “get it”? Our specially-trained instructors are exceptional at math and love working with kids. Our educational materials and teaching techniques are designed to challenge students in grades 2–12 beyond what they’re learning in school and to broaden their horizons in math. In our centers, we nurture and grow a child’s natural enthusiasm for math by challenging them to think the way that natural mathematical thinkers do.

What about your staff? Our staff is wonderful, filled with college students, retired teachers and certified teachers. One of my tutors has been with me for seven of the eight years I’ve been open. My mom works here too doing the books; she also instills the love of math in the children who enjoy seeing her. We are smart, capable women who never shy away from math or science.

What has been your greatest reward working with kids? My greatest reward is the “aha moment” with a student. I know when they learn something they feel good and gain confidence.
