Kama Friedman, Owner/Center Director

Kama received a BS degree in Mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1992. In 2010 she attained an MBA from the University of Maryland, University College. Having tutored many students in various mathematics subjects for more than 20 years she is looking forward to continuing her quest to help students love math. She has heard too many students claim to not like math, but she understands that their dislike stems from a lack of understanding. Learning to understand math and successfully solve problems build confidence in every student. This brings satisfaction to so many and Kama is looking forward to many "A-ha!" moments.

Paul introduced Kama to Mathnasium after having heard many commercials about the company. He has been actively involved in coaching many sports over the years with their two sons, Jordon and Clayton.

He is looking forward to working in a behind-the-scenes support role to help this location run smoothly and efficiently.
