Paul & Beth Kelly, Owners
Hello. We are Paul and Beth Kelly, owners/operators of Mathnasium of Dublin. Our relationship with Mathnasium began in 2012 when our daughter enrolled in Mathnasium to improve her Algebra skills. Our story may be similar to yours. After many evenings of ineffective homework help and, frankly, lots of family stress, we went in search of math tutoring for our daughter. What we found was a math learning method that turned our daughter's grades around in a few short months and profoundly spiked her overall confidence and interest in math. The Mathnasium method proved to be much more beneficial than one-on-one tutoring and improved our family life tremendously. We were so impressed with the Mathnasium model and the successful method of making math make sense that we opened a center in Dublin.
Paul Kelly, Center Director/ Owner
Paul has 27 years of experience in sales, management, and operational support in a diverse range of industries, including telecommunications, information technology, real estate, and hospitality. As a successful small business owner, he believes the true measure of success is how consistently a business exceeds customers' expectations. Paul is a proud veteran of the United States Army.
