Kep Nana, Instructor
Hello, my name is Kep Nana. I currently attend the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology. Math has always been my favorite subject because I like the problem solving and critical thinking that goes behind it. I am currently in Calculus I and I am also on my school’s math team. I recently became interested in teaching math because I want others to see the fun in mathematics and help others understand it more clearly and not be as intimidated. Mathnasium was a great place to take advantage of this goal and I like helping the students set a good foundation for math by using our method now matter how old. I like all of the various teaching methods at my disposal to help the students become better and have increased knowledge of a certain concept.
Leah Edwards, Instructor
Hello! My name is Leah Edwards and I am a junior in the magnet program at Chamblee Charter High School. I am currently taking Honors Calculus. Growing up, math was never my favorite subject, nor the class I excelled the most in. However, because of this it always encouraged me to practice and study harder so that I felt more comfortable with the concepts and better grasped the material. Math has taught me quite a bit about persistence and the notion of "practice makes perfect." As an instructor at Mathnasium, I hope to do the best I can to share with other students how valuable and intriguing math can be as long as you keep working at it. Outside of the classroom, I love to read, travel, and ride horses, three things I have been doing since before the age of four. Along with helping our mathletes be the best at math they can be, I'd love to offer book recommendations, have discussions about the world we live in, and share my passion for horses!
Mary Brown, Instructor
Mary Brown. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgia Tech. I worked as an Environmental Engineer for 26 years. My experience instructing children include a year as a paraprofessional at a Dekalb County elementary school. I joined the team at Mathnasium of Conyers with hopes of convincing as many children as I can that they can learn to love math as much as I do.
Fatima Drammeh, Instructor
Hi! My name is Fatima and I am currently a Junior at the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology. I am taking AP Calculus AB right now and am also a member of the Mu Alpha Theta: National Mathematics Honor Society. This means I have maintained a 3.0 or higher in 6 semesters of college preparatory mathematics classes. I am also a member of the Debate team at school. I believe math is truly the foundation for all things in life. It helps develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that other classes simply won't touch basis on. My goal here at Mathnasium is to help our Mathletes build and maintain their critical thinking skills while making math fun!

Jonathan Smiley, Instructor
Greetings, my name is Jonathan Smiley, and I attend Rockdale County High School and take part in their IAT program. Since 6th grade, I've excelled at the top of my class in math. As of right now, I am taking AP Statistics, but I also have Advanced Algebra, Accelerated Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB under my belt. Along with my love for math, I also have a love for helping people in need. During the summer of 2018, I spent many weeks at a food bank loading people's cars up with free groceries. When I heard about Mathnasium and the kind of work they did, I realized there couldn't be a better place to combine the two. My cousins that are a bit younger than me struggle with math frequently and come to me for assistance and math homework help, which brings us closer even if we're so far apart, so when I decided to become an Instructor, I aimed for the same thing. Although they may not be family, I want to get to know every mathlete I come across through math and build an understanding of the subject for each one so that they may achieve goals they never thought possible before.
