Center DirectorKaitlin O'Neill, Owner

After graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics, Kaitlin kicked off her career working at a global banking institution in New York City. While working there, she found out about Mathnasium through an advertisement in a local magazine and, having always wanted to open her own business, she knew this would be the perfect one. It involved two of her biggest passions - math and children. Kaitlin is excited to see how the students at Mathnasium grow from each and every session they come to, seeing discouraged faces change to big, confident, smiling ones, and hopes that every child that comes through this center, will one day carry the same love for math that she possesses. In her downtime, Kaitlin enjoys discovering all the different things that each neighborhood of New York City has to offer.

Adam Yukhanov, Operations & Marketing Coordinator

After noticing the struggle that many students encounter when learning mathematics in school, Adam wanted to do something about it and help students develop their confidence and strength in Math. Adam is currently a first-year finance major at Baruch College (and an Instructor at our Fresh Meadows center!); planning on utilizing his passion for numbers in the Finance field. His passion for Math, as well as being on his high school Math Team, has provided him with a rigorous understanding of the subject and allow him to help others gain an advantage in mathematical problem-solving. Adam enjoys teaching students math because he is aware that each student perceives math differently; he gets to see his students develop their own understanding of mathematics that sets them up for success in problem-solving in the future. Adam aims to become an Engineer or Financial Analyst in the future because he wants to utilize his analytical and problem-solving skills, along with his love for numbers, to help businesses thrive and have an impact on the world. In his free time, Adam likes to play soccer, workout, and play chess.

Raymond Tung, Instructor

Raymond is currently a student at Queens College, pursuing a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education and Mathematics. As a child in elementary and middle school, he was always motivated to learn and challenge himself about mathematics but even more inspired to help those around him with understanding the subject. This passion for mathematics blossomed even further in high school where he met his math teacher that had a relatable Cantonese background that empowered him to pursue a teaching career. In fact, it was not simply because of the same ethnicity and language that these two shared that made Raymond want to become a math teacher. Instead, it was because of how effortless and dedicated his math teacher was and still is that ultimately convinced him to be a math teacher. Aside from math, Raymond’s hobbies include watching anime, reading manga, playing chess and other strategic games, as well as playing MMORPGs and occasionally some League of Legends. 

 

Sofia Gonzalez, Instructor

Sofia is currently a student studying nursing at Long Island University. She has a long history of wanting to help the people around her doing tutoring, community service, internships, and just lending a helping hand when it’s needed. She was in a math club in elementary school, a teacher’s assistant from 8th grade until 12th grade for all math classes and a tutor in high school for students struggling with geometry. Her love of helping those in need and the straightforwardness that math offers led her to seek out those who struggled in math, and ultimately become a tutor.
