Rohita Shah, Center Director/Owner
Hello! I'm Rohita Shah the Center Director at Mathnasium of Whitefish Bay. Prior to opening this center, I enjoyed working as a project associate for the American Orthopaedic Association. I have a Master’s degree in Bioengineering from University of Illinois. With a background in Orthopaedic Research, I managed a Gait Analysis Laboratory at Rush University Medical Center for several years before deciding to stay home to raise my children. With my own children, I experienced both the frustrations of math and the rewards of overcoming the challenges through the Mathnasium method. Therefore, I'm passionate about helping every child truly understand math by teaching it in the way that makes sense to them. More importantly, I'm committed to bringing the Mathnasium Method to the children in the community.
Sam, Lead Instructor
Hi! My name is Sam and I am currently a senior at Cardinal Stritch University. I am double majoring in secondary education and mathematics, so, in the long run, I plan on becoming a high school math teacher. I have always loved and excelled at mathematics. It has always been a passion of mine and I am glad I get to share that passion with the children at Mathnasium. Along with math, I love sports, specifically soccer (I play on the Men's team at Stritch), being outdoors, and traveling. My most recent trip was to Australia and it was absolutely amazing! Hopefully, I can travel to Europe in the near future and study abroad in Spain!

The key to making it fun is finding how it applies to your other interests. I enjoy a wide variety of activities, including choir, soccer, tennis, photography, hiking, and solving my Rubik's cube. I can't wait to help your child make math exciting!

"Hello! I’m James and I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Since my youth, I’ve developed a keen interest in the mathematical and statistical realm as I find the logic and sense derived from numerical reasoning to provide a sort of comforting peace. As well, I enjoy expressing my thoughts in a more nonsensical way through my appetite for drawing goofy cartoons and slightly less goofy portraits. Elsewhere sports are a significant part of my life, soccer being the dearest to me (apologies to tennis and basketball). I’ve spent about a full year in France and managed to pick up about half a year’s worth of French to boot!"
