Betsy Washburn, Owner and Center Director
Betsy grew up in Glendale, Arizona, and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business Management from Arizona State University. In 1995, Betsy moved to Southeast Missouri where she obtained her teaching certificate and began teaching junior high and high school mathematics. Betsy has 11 years classroom experience in teaching mathematics and has a passion for helping students find success in math. Betsy has also earned a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governor’s University.
While in Kansas City, Missouri, Betsy was lucky to be the Center Director for Mathnasium of Blue Valley, a very successful center in Overland Park, KS. This experience fueled a strong passion for the Mathnasium method and helping students make sense of math.
Betsy has two grown children, Cole and Riley. They, as a family, recently returned to the Phoenix area love it. In her spare time, Betsy loves to read, travel, spend time with her family and watch her daughter, Riley, play softball for Central Methodist University.
Ethan Morgan, Lead Instructor
Zach Rolfness, Instructor
I have been a life long lover of all things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Ever since I was young I have been tinkering, building, and learning about the world I live in. One of my favorite things to do is robotics since it is a great combination of everything I love, computers, engineering, and math. I recently received exciting news...I have been accepted into MIT this Fall. I started tutoring because I love passing along my knowledge to others and inspiring the next generation of students.
I have always loved math; being an instructor has allowed me to spread that love and help my students. It was with the support of my teachers and tutors that I have been able to excel at math. Now I help others achieve their own mathematical goals. In my spare time, I play soccer and track for my school.
Alyssa Belpedio, Instructor
Hello! My name is Alyssa Belpedio and all throughout school, math has been my favorite subject. Now, I am a Mathematics major at Paradise Valley Community College and will be transferring to Arizona State University in 2019. The moment I discovered Mathnasium, I knew it was the perfect job for me. I love teaching kids to see the beauty and purpose in math.
