Masaki Osato - Instructor
Masaki is a 4th year Statistics B.S. student at UCSB. Growing up, he was never a fan of math so he can empathize with many of the students. He is familiar with the struggle most of our students face when they first begin at Mathnasium. This empathy and his prior experience at Mathnasium of Almaden makes him a very effective instructor. In his free time, he likes to go outdoors to rock climb or kayak. He also enjoys spending some time indoors to play pool or Super Smash Bros.
