CenterDirectorErena Shkodra, Center Director 

With more than fifteen years experience as a teacher, primarily an elementary teacher of grades 1 to 6, Erena excels at helping students who struggle with math. She has a Bachelor of Education diploma (OCT), Intermediate Math qualifications, Montessori Elementary Teacher certification, and a B.A. with a major in English Literature and Grammar. Following her Orton-Gillingham teacher training, she mentored and tutored students with Dyslexia and ADHD, to not simply catch up but to exceed expectations. 

Erena's philosophy is that every child can learn when taught in a way that makes sense to him or her, rather than simply by memorizing and repeating. Understanding mathematics and training the brain to see the patterns, to analyze processes and relationships, assists children to understand the world around them at a higher level. Having strong mathematical skills allows children to excel in various school courses, gives them confidence, and ultimately allows them to achieve their maximum potential in life. 

Mathnasium is unique and fun way for children to learn math. Mathnasium's approach helps children internalize patterns and the beauty of nature, helps them make sense not only of math but also of the world around them. Erena's passion and goal is to relieve each child's struggle with math so they can excel and choose any path in life they desire.
