Lindsey Leidinger, Center Director
Lindsey has been with Mathnasium since 2013. She holds a master's degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University and always enjoyed math during her years of schooling. Her favorite part of teaching is sharing the joy of math with students and helping them see themselves as mathematicians. When Lindsey is not teaching math, she can be found playing the piano, attempting Pinterest projects, or hiking the trails of Arizona with her husband. She was born and raised in Tucson and is therefore a U of A fan...sorry, folks!

Ariel is currently a senior at Barrett, the Honors College at ASU. She is pursuing a degree in Mathematics and Biology with a minor in Mandarin. The first time math really made sense was in fifth grade when her teacher taught multiplication using arrays and skittles, and she's been hooked ever since! In her free time, Ariel enjoys fencing, reading, and doing math (no, she's not kidding).
Guillermo J., Instructor
