   Devanshi Madan, Assistant Center Director

Devanshi Madan loves working with kids and is passionate about teaching. Working at Mathnasium has completely changed her perspective about math that she had while growing up. She likes teaching math the “easier and fun” way using the Mathnasium methodology and material. It gives her great satisfaction to hear the words “Oh, now I get it!” or “This makes so much more sense to me now!” from students. She graduated with a Masters in Economics from St. Josephs College, Bangalore University, India. She had worked in the banking/social sector for a year before her Masters. She then started working in the field of education, teaching economics and statistics for a year. Devanshi has been working with Mathnasium for over three and a half years and enjoys seeing the difference it makes in the lives of so many kids.

 

    Stephen Parks, Assistant Manager

 Whether a student comes to us with an initial fear of math, or has already taken an interest in the field which they would like to develop further, Stephen Parks enjoys equipping them with the tools they need to succeed. He believes that pursuing excellence in mathematics allows students to extend confidence, problem solving skills, and positive thought patterns to other spheres of their education and personal growth. Stephen joined the Mathnasium team after graduating from Santa Clara University, during the Fall of 2012. A year later, he traveled to Australia to pursue his Masters degree. While living abroad, he continued to teach math, gaining a unique perspective of the similarities and differences of the Australian educational system. Upon returning home to California in January 2016, Stephen returned to Mathnasium of Mountain View - Los Altos. In the role of Assistant Manager, he is able to work directly with our students, and also behind the scenes, crafting customized learning plans in order to help them best achieve and surpass their educational goals.
