Jeffrey, Center Director

My name is Jeffrey and I am the Center Director here at Mathnasium of Woodbridge.  I studied for a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. I started at Mathnasium during my undergraduate studies as a part time job and grew to love working with the students and changing their views of math as well as their lives. Growing up, math has always been one of my favorite subjects and I would often find myself teaching my peers and helping with them my love of math.  Pursuing a degree involving advanced mathematics really renewed my passion for math and being able to share my love of math at Mathnasium has become a highlight of my day.
