Keri Pittard, Instructor
Keri's love for math and science began at a young age. She used to love to count her grandmother's pot of spare change every time she went to visit, do long multiplication problems in the yard just for fun, and once she even counted the reflector poles on the side of the freeway on a long road trip--over two thousand! She has bachelor's degrees in civil engineering and math education, and worked for 4 years as an engineer in missile development before taking time off to raise a family. Four of her five sons were born in Southern Arizona, where she and her husband lived for 12 years before moving to Utah. Her husband is also an engineer, and they met in a college calculus class. He even proposed to her using a cleverly romantic double integral. Yes, math can be both fun AND romantic!
Keri believes that being good at something does not necessarily make you good at teaching it, especially when it comes to math. Often people who are really good at math can't see why someone just doesn't get it, and lose their patience. Keri has researched and practiced many mathematical teaching methods and helped hundreds of math students at all levels. She likes the way the Mathnasium teaching principles fit in with what she has learned from her own experience.
Amber Fletcher, Instructor

She worked four years as a math teacher and enjoyed it thoroughly, but now has two young kids and wants to spend more time with them. She can't quite leaving teaching alone though and has joined the Mathnasium team to continue encouraging people to find the enjoyment of solving something they didn't think they could and overcoming challenges that frustrate them. Her favorite thing is to see frustration turn into confidence and even a little excitement.
