Merlin S

Hi! I'm Merlin and I'm a university student pursuing a Bachelors degree in Actuarial Science. I work with Mathnasium because I have always wanted to share my knowledge in math with other students, like how my teachers did with me; I want the students to love math like I do and make it fun for them. After starting to work at Mathnasium, I've learned how much I love working with kids!

Lisa H

Hi, I’m Lisa. The reason why I chose to work at Mathnasium is because I love math and want to help kids to see math is very useful and fun. I used to struggled in math when I was in grade 7, but there was a teacher that helped change my attitude and I’ve been enjoying math ever since. I firmly believe everyone can enjoy math if they find a way of learning that is suitable for them. Besides teaching, I enjoy doing volunteer work that helps people live a meaningful and happy life.

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