New Student Policies
NOTE: Age Minimum Policy Change
As of August 1, 2021, we will no longer allow students
younger than 9 years of age to begin working with us.
Do I have to pay the fee?
Yep. This is non-negotiable. We want only serious inquiries on our list.
Ugh. I hate monthly payments. Can we pay by the hour?
No. We’ve found this pricing plan structure works best for students and families.
Can we stop sessions once we start?
Absolutely. If your child is not “feeling it”, just let us know. We’ll walk you through how to stop. No refunds for unused sessions within the month.
Notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have policies I need to be aware of?
Yes! So glad you asked.
We do things very differently around here. ❤ MFM is not a homework help service but rather a math intervention service. Please read our policies here:
Can we move around inside of Tier plans?
Yes! Once you get started, if you decide you’d like to increase the frequency or decrease it – discuss it with your math specialist and they’ll give you next steps.
We only make these changes at the start of a new billing cycle.
Do you offer scholarships?
No, not at this time. We use every penny to serve your students in the best way possible. We have highly-trained specialists that will get you positive results and with that comes a cost.
Who will be working with my child?
The MFM team is highly trained in mutlisensory math methods. None of our team are contractors with their own methodology.
All team members are trained through a rigorous program for multisensory math and learn about the neurodiverse students we work with.
Many of our staff members have Master’s degrees or Ph.D.’s! They choose to work with us here because we truly do what works for students.

How long will it take for my student to get to grade level?
Great question. Many parents are worried about the length of commitment and how quickly they can see results. As with all things that require sweeping changes, there is no magic bullet.
It can take years before they reach grade level but usually, parents start to see results immediately.
- Anxiety goes down.
- Confidence increases.
- Self-advocating begins to happen.
To give you a picture of what this looks like, a student typically works with us for several years before they start phasing out of our help. Students start earning the grades they’re looking for, speaking up for themselves, and even challenging a teacher’s thinking in class when they discover a different way of solving.
When a student starts coming to sessions with very few questions and feels confident they understand, we begin moving students into an “as-needed” basis.
How many years on average are students at MFM?
An average of 3 years! Our goal is the same as yours…independence and confidence.
This can take students less or more time depending on how frequently the student comes to lessons, how far behind they are, and their commitment to our process.
What is the youngest age you serve?
As of August 1, 2021, we only serve students ages 9 and above.
This is due to age, fine motor skills, and attention span for these students.
