Ioannis (John) Melenikiotis, Co-Director & Co-Owner
Ioannis’ prior responsibilities were corporate finance and operations both in the U.S. and internationally. In his free time, he also enjoyed helping family and friends with math, mentoring elementary-school Odyssey of the Mind teams, and coaching elementary- and middle-school aged football (soccer) teams. Looking for a business model to advance youth, Ioannis decided to invest in Mathnasium, understanding the method is designed to make a positive impact in each student’s life, either by helping those who need to make sense of math concepts, or by providing those ahead the extra challenge, all the time enhancing their critical thinking skills. Allow me to show you how Mathnasium is your solution!
Elis Regina Melenikiotis, Co-Director & Co-Owner
Elis is co-Owner of Mathnasium in Durham. Elis earned her teaching degree and thrives on helping children feel successful at school. As a teenager, Elis created an after-school program for students who wanted to improve their math skills or needed extra tutoring. She also volunteered at her church, teaching catechism to children and helping the clergy. After 20 years in the corporate workforce, volunteering at schools, and working with diverse people in Brazil, Thailand and the U.S., Elis decided to dedicate herself to her family. She is especially proud of helping her children during their formative years, which made her realize the importance of developing strong fundamentals in children early on. She is enthusiastic to use her personal and professional experience to help children succeed at the Mathnasium Center. Elis and Ioannis have two beautiful children together.
