Amber Beckemeyer, Director

Amber has been with Mathnasium since August 2014, starting out as an instructor and working her way up. Before that, she spent several years in education after completing a Bachelor's in Math & Psychology, as well as a Master's in Teaching. While she always envisioned herself teaching inside a typical classroom, Amber was pleasantly surprised at how much Mathnasium felt like home. Amber feels as if she has finally found her place in this world and she works incredibly hard to make it a welcoming environment for all.

 


Patrick Chen, Lead Instructor

Patrick is Amber's right-hand man whenever she needs some backup in Fair Oaks. He is currently pursuing a Mathematics degree at Sacramento State and is looking forward to a future career in education. He loves teaching and helping students learn in the Mathnasium way. Outside of math he also loves coaching and playing basketball - helping kids on the court has furthered his interest and passion for mentoring kids in the classroom.

 

 

 

 

Mark Nelson, Instructor

As a young child, Mark developed an aptitude and love of math and science, but it was not until attending high school that he really got a sense of how they both fit together. Going on to American River College, he began taking calculus, chemistry and physics, and thought hard about becoming an engineer. However, after taking a break while serving as a missionary for two years, he returned to school and realized that it was the math he felt most drawn to. 

 

Celia Croy, Instructor

Celia holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UC San Diego, and studied Music Composition at American River College. She currently teaches piano and guitar lessons to children and enjoys playing the piano and other percussion instruments in American River College’s performing ensembles. Celia has always had a love for math and and has found joy in tutoring math students of all ages.
