Priyanka Vakeel

Franchise Owner
Priyanka has been working in IT for over 10 years and the love for Maths always made her look for opportunities and that brought her to Mathnasium. She believes a lot of trust and understanding is required between a teacher and a student so that the latter can progress in their subject provided they also have a healthy learning environment. Being a mother of 2 kids, she understands as parents it is important to provide the best in everything the kids get. This understanding as a parent brought her to Mathnasium as she wants all her fellow parents to get the best out of their time and value for their money. Finally, about Maths she believes in this famous quote "Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.”
