The City of Cottage Grove recognized the April 3 opening of Mathnasium with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held July 25. Mathnasium provides tutoring in mathematics at more than 700 locations in the United States.
Center Director Pauline Ho, who is a Cottage Grove resident, stated that she was inspired to open the Cottage Grove branch after observing her son's enthusiasm in Mathnasium classes at a different location. Ho found the materials "fun, engaging and perfectly tailored" to her children's math level.
The Cottage Grove location currently has five part-time employees, who teach from Monday to Friday. At the ceremony, City Council Member Wayne Johnson thanked Center Director Pauline Ho for her investment and partnership in Cottage Grove's business community.
Mathnasium of Cottage Grove is located at 7430 80th Street S., Suite 104 in the Oak Park Commons building.
