Center Director/OwnerKip 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."

Can, Instructor

Can is an Electrical Engineering major at the University of California, Irvine. Throughout his education in mathematics, he has come to appreciate the simplicity and widespread applications of the subject. His love for tutoring math came from teaching his younger sisters about the subject and watching their eyes light up as they realize just how simple math could be. Knowing that many students dread all things math because of their perception that it’s a strange and difficult subject, he wanted to teach children that math is a language that anyone can understand.

 

 

Erika, 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.

Leon started working at Mathnasium to pursue a career involving mathematics. Before his time at Mathnasium, Leon worked in the telecommunications industry and volunteered in the CalTeach program, where he served as a teachers aid, tutoring math, reading, and spelling to third-graders. Through this experience, Leon learned how to teach and approach math from a bottom-up approach so that students can understand key concepts with ease, and progress with confidence. Leon graduated from the University of California, Irvine, with a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering. His long term career goal is to apply math to benefit ecosystems and the biosphere. In his free time, Leon enjoys reading, writing, tai chi, music, and sports.
