Stephanie Sobotta, Director

Stephanie began working at Mathnasium in May 2010.  She attended TCNJ for STEM education, and began working at Mathnasium while finishing her degree.  Steph jokes that this is the college job that she refuses to leave.  In all seriousness, Mathnasium is Stephanie's dream job.  She loves being able to connect with students one-to-one and has always loved math.  Outside of Mathnasium, she lives in the Cherry Hill area with her husband, Nick, and daughter, Raegan.  At home Stephanie "maths" as well as "reads" to Raegan - hoping one day she will follow in her footsteps!  Stephanie is also always happy to discuss anything and everything Harry Potter.

 


Owner/Instructor

Bryan Cooke, Owner

Bryan holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and an MS degree in Engineering Management, both from Drexel University. He has also taken various continuing education classes, including Vibration Analysis, Root Cause Analysis, and Reliability Methods. Bryan spent 20 years as a plant engineer and has also spent 10 years as a reliability consultant and corporate trainer. He realized a love for teaching when he was a corporate trainer and as a Scout leader. Bryan has wanted to get into the teaching field for several years. He looked into public schools and colleges, but there were many roadblocks. Then he heard about Mathnasium and checked it out. Bryan agrees with the integrity and ideals Mathnasium promotes and the teaching methodology is powerful and understandable. The teaching method is similar to how he learned Math from his mother and grandfather. "We 'mathed' as well as 'read' while I was growing up." Bryan sees Mathnasium as a way that he can pass on his love for math and give back to the community. Bryan has lived in the Cherry Hill area for almost 30 years with his wife and 3 children. He has been involved with Boy Scouts as an assistant Scout Master and enjoys camping, tennis, golf and swimming.
