Ratika Khandelwal, Owner
Hi! After having lived in 4 countries across three continents, having two kids and a passion for maths; I decided to bring Mathnasium to Australia to inspire children in STEM fields and address key questions that all parents, no matter where they are, have:
- What are my child's gap?
- How do I fill these gaps? and,
- How do I challenge/enrich my child?
Through Mathnasium MethodTM we identify the gaps in a child's maths knowledge through an extensive assessment and then create a customized learning plan. This approach transforms the way children understand and appreciate maths and help them build their number sense. This not only fills their gaps, but also accelerate their learning. We are committed to a student's long term success vs. just getting through the next test.
I have a bachelor's in Biology and an MBA. I have worked in hospitality and insurance industries. But my passion is maths and teaching and so Mathnasium!

Hello! The passion for teaching and love for maths has brought me to the Mathnasium of Hornsby. After completing my Masters in Electrical Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS), I decided to pursue my career in mathematics and teaching. With over four years of experience as a maths teacher and centre manager, my passion has only grown. I look forward to each day with the thought of enriching young minds, unlocking their potential and form a lasting bond with every child and their parents! I believe that Maths is fun and learning it in a way that makes sense makes it enjoyable for every child.
