Kip Fisher, Center Director/Owner
Kip has spent over 30 years applying math to real-world problems. With a Master’s degree in Applied Math from Stanford University and years of experience using math to clarify issues, giving top-performing business executives insights into how to make better decisions, Kip understands the importance and practicality of thoroughly understanding mathematics. He now enjoys using the knowledge he gained through years of experience to better teach the art of mathematics to a new generation. According to Kip, "The Mathnasium Method is the ideal supplement to classroom math instruction. Math is not really a lecture topic, it is an encounter topic. Classroom teachers cannot hope to guide individual students to encounter math in the way most suitable to each student. At Mathnasium, I will be able to create a custom learning program for each student. Each program will be unique, designed to meet the needs of exactly one child. Whether the child is struggling or advanced, I can use the Mathnasium Method to lead them to encounter math in the way that makes sense to them. There is no better way for children to develop a deep understanding and love of math."
Kayley, Lead Instructor
Erika began her Mathnasium journey in her hometown—Buford, Georgia. She hopes that by helping kids gain confidence in math, she can help foster confidence in other aspects of their lives. As a current student of University of California, Irvine, Erika plans to enter into a career field where she can help others. Erika balances her time spent working and doing school work with various extracurricular activities, such as involvement with the Drama department, volunteering with the Cambodian Awareness Organization, singing, playing ukulele and guitar, and occasionally performing with the on-campus music club, Open Jam.

To Michael, math is a superpower—with every new topic he masters, he gains the skills and knowledge necessary to solve future problems. He currently attends Orange Coast College with plans to transfer to a four-year university. He hasn’t decided if he’ll be an engineer, architect, or scientist, but one thing is certain with math—the possibilities are endless.
