Nini Narong, Ph.D., Owner/Center Director
Before joining the Mathnasium family, Nini Narong used math nearly every day as a Data Scientist with top consulting firms, including Booz Allen Hamilton and General Dynamics Information Technology. What drew her to Mathnasium was her own daughter's amazing progress after becoming a member. Nini wrote then, "Catherine has so much fun at Mathnasium. She comes home excited to show me what she learned that day. She loves going there so much that it makes me want to know more about Mathnasium and to be a part of it.”
Nini has four academic degrees, including a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from University of Wisconsin, Madison. In her free time, she loves rock climbing, playing guitar, and walking her cute little Shih Zhu, Cupid. She looks forward to seeing you at Mathnasium of Capitol Hill DC!
Steve has been playing with math ever since he went to college. A local of the DC area, he graduated from Lafayette College with an engineering degree and then applied math to modeling naval sensor systems for the US Government. He went on to teach math classes ranging from sixth grade through calculus in independent schools in Tennessee, Ohio, and Maryland. He's also applied math to managing the budgets and finances of charter schools and arts organizations in DC. Along the way he also earned a degree in music from Kent State University and has taught music and performed professionally both locally and across the United States.
Clarisse is a student at the George Washington University and is in the process of completing her B.S. in Statistics with a minor in Economics. Clarisse grew up teaching many of her peers tips and tricks on how to better understand math. When she stumbled across Mathnasium she was so excited to finally be apart of a team dedicated to helping students understand and learn math in a way that made sense! Now she enjoys every second teaching the Mathnasium way to students of every level of math. In her free time, she likes to make origami, read social science books, and cook food from around the world!
