Jessica Saldivar, Center Director
Jessica was formally a Lead Instructor at the Mathnasium in Corona and was the Assistant Center Director for the Mathnasium in Temecula. She studied Neuroscience with an emphasis in Psychology at the University of California, Riverside. She plans to attend medical school in route to becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon. Jessica is fascinated with how children develop, both from a neuro-biological perspective, and also in a very practical sense when it comes to discovering new ideas and concepts. It excites Jessica to think about how much more there is to learn and discover about the brain and how much potential each child has to develop and grow. Whether it is a student who is years behind or one that is performing above their grade level, Jessica is always looking to help cultivate the learning process. Jessica also happens to be a lover of the arts. In fact, it was art and music that taught Jessica how fun math could be. To this day, she plays multiple instruments and is always up to learn something new (at the moment it’s Polynesian Dancing and rock climbing).
