Tammy & Marc Goldberg: Growth Mindset and Positive Talk Around Math in the Home

TAMMY AND MARC GOLDBERG are underground math education innovators who have figured out how to get math right! Their work can be experienced at Mathnasium Learning Centers worldwide. It is their mission to empower children to excel in math and grow into confident young adults who are able to think logically and solve complex problems. Tammy’s origins in the math classroom and the private tutoring space merged with Marc’s accounting and business background in 2008 when they opened their first of several Mathnasium Learning Centers in NYC. But, perhaps, the more interesting part of the story was the emerging creative collaboration with Mathnasium co-founder, Larry Martinek, that gave them the perfect think tank and platform to write a revolutionary math curriculum that has empowered millions of students to develop true understanding and self confidence in their math abilities. In addition to writing the majority of Mathnasium’s curriculum, Tammy and Marc are the operators of 5 Mathnasium Learning Center locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and one in their current hometown of Doylestown, PA. As parents of school-aged children themselves, Tammy and Marc have seen the negative academic effects of the Covid pandemic firsthand. Having the experience of working with thousands of students in their centers and developing a curriculum that has parents raving around the country, they feel a personal responsibility to share their collective wisdom and bring awareness to parents as to what kids actually need to be successful in math compared to what most people think they need. Outside of their work in math education… Marc is a dynamic rock singer and multi-instrumentalist, a professional problem-solver, and a youth baseball coach. Tammy is an astrologer, a wellness enthusiast, and an aspiring singer/songwriter. They have two kind-hearted, creative, math-loving kids, a Miniature Schnauzer, and a Russian Blue cat at their home in Pennsylvania.
