Eti & Leron Azeroual, Center Directors/Owners
Eti Azeroual and her husband Leron moved to Los Angeles, California in 2005 from Toronto, Canada. They graduated with BAs in Pure Mathematics and Education from University of Toronto. They both taught at LAUSD for over 10 years. Eti’s and Leron’s passion for math lead to open a Mathnasium to help students learn math. They understand the importance of having a strong mathematical foundation. They strongly believe that regardless of the child's future career choices, it is imperative that the child has a solid understanding of mathematical concepts and not mere memorization of formulas and procedures. Eti and Leron are residents of Playa Vista and have two beautiful young children. They would consider it a privilege and an honor to help the children of El Segundo and nearby communities develop confidence and a positive attitude towards mathematics through the Mathnasium Method.
Mike is a Computer Science major who is currently attending El Camino College. He has a love for computers and all the mathematics involved. Mike uses analogies to help students remember what they are learning about. Sometimes he'll come up with something random that way they won't forget it, usually something funny. He keeps his students engaged by maintaining an upbeat environment and utilizes their prior knowledge to drive his instruction. Mike is always getting into new hobbies and working on projects that interest him. He spends his spare time drawing, studying, teaching his cat Calculus, and training in Muay Thai.
A second year student at LMU, Joey plans to major in computer science and spends much of his free time programming or studying mathematics. He plans to find work after college as a software engineer or find work in some of the leading software corporations. Before attending LMU, Joey was able to take a course in Calculus at LMU through a program at El Segundo high school. In his free time Joey likes to play drums in his band, write poetry, and plays percussion in the LMU community band. Joey has tutored many of his friends and neighbors in the past which inspired him to find work at Mathnasium.
Sheryl is a student at California State University, Long Beach and she is studying to become a Biomedical Engineer. In her spare time, Sheryl enjoys reading and watching movies. Since grade 7, Sheryl has tutored younger students in Mathematics, Science, and English and tutored some of her peers in Pre-Calculus during high school. Sheryl enjoys working at Mathnasium because she likes knowing that she is helping students understand a subject that is typically seen as “difficult” and make it fun and easier for them.
Trevor graduated from Cal Poly: San Luis Obispo, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. In his spare time, he likes to work on DIY home projects and staying active by playing basketball and going on runs. Before Mathnasium, he worked as a robotics teaching assistant and graduate course grader at Cal Poly. Now Trevor enjoys teaching using the Mathnasium method, using a more hands-on approach to understanding concepts through manipulatives as well as other “tricks” not taught in school.
