Our staff is built to teach each student individually, to develop the skills they need to thrive in mathematics, and to foster a love of learning.

Adriana Jordan

Centre Director/Owner
Adriana graduated with a B.SC. in Actuarial Science. She came to Canada in 2002 in order to pursue a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Ottawa. She worked as a tutor in the university’s Math Help Centre for a long time, where she enjoyed teaching students of different ages and proficiency levels. It also became apparent to her that some students needed more help than she could possibly offer in the limited setting of the help centre, and that the sooner help is given in a student’s life, the bigger the impact it has in his or her academic life. That’s why she is so excited to offer the Mathnasium experience to kids of all ages in the Ottawa area.

Francis Kawan

Francis taught high school math and science for twenty years with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. After staying home with his children for seven years, he has returned to filling his week days teaching what he loves. He, as most stay-at-home parents, has an abundant amount of patience and understanding. We are very lucky to have him teaching at Mathnasium! When Francis is not teaching or with his family, he is probably roaming the forest with his map and compass.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
