Daisy Pardhan

Owner/ Centre Director
Daisy Pardhan is the Owner and Director of the Crowfoot Mathnasium and Calgary North. Daisy graduated from University of Alberta in 2006 with a Bachelor of Education. She taught in Calgary classrooms for 6 years and then branched into the Educational Software industry-Mathletics. Utilizing this experience, Daisy was able to understand firsthand the disconnection between the teaching methodology in many classrooms and how students processed the curriculum. Her experience in the Educational technology space, specifically math software, allowed her to clearly understand the missing pieces and the notion that “one size does not fit all”. Daisy was captivated by the Mathnasium method and stated, “We use a personalized learning approach as each child processes and interprets math differently." Daisy’s 3 main goals at this learning centre are: - Breaking free of the fixed mindset. Children have a preconceived notion that math is hard. Mathnasium breaks through this wall, enabling children to understand the various types of mathematical strategies. - Creating a customized learning environment for each child, resulting in self satisfaction within their learning. - Providing children with a calm pleasant environment, allowing them to believe math does not have to be frustrating but enjoyable!

Adam Gulamhusein

Instructor
Adam is a student who will be attending the University of Calgary in the fall of 2021 to study engineering. Adam performed a TEDx talk on optogenetics for addiction last year during the pandemic, was a neurosurgical research assistant through the HYRS program in Grade 11, and won the Calgary Brain Bee in 2021 - a prestigious neuroscience competition.
