Chad Henke

Owner
Chad earned his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Tennessee Technological University in 1993. Chad has worked creating software solutions that range from a full retail POS, to a database synchronization solution, to an enterprise solution for the financial industry. He was the Chief Technology Officer and lead software architect of a team consisting of over 100 developers. Chad’s passion for math began in High School, where one teacher made a huge impact as a mentor, teaching Boolean Algebra. The following year, she designed and created a computer enrichment class for Chad. “My experience in High School forever changed my outlook in life. First, learning that the basic laws of math still held true even in base 2 (vs. base 10) math helped me ‘see’ math for the first time. That vision is what Larry Martinek (the creator of the Mathnasium curriculum) talks about, and what I hope to pass on to the students at our Mathnasium. Second, I learned that one single mentor in your life can have a profound influence. While I have gotten great enjoyment designing software solutions during my career, one of my favorite aspects of my job has always been to mentor others.” Chad has had many opportunities to mentor others, from his work for the University teaching students how to file a resume electronically in the early 90’s, to mentoring and holding training sessions with other developers, to coaching a middle school robotics team. One of Chad's hobbies is the new frontier of 3D printing. He is excited about the future of this technology, and hopes to share it with his Mathnasium students.

Adam Henke

Assistant Center Director
Adam brings to the team a rounded experience in sales, customer service and technology. He has worked in a diverse set of fields from cutting grass for a start up family business to Technical support for Asurion. Most of his experience is in management and that is what you will find him doing on a day to day basis in the center. From a young age he has been a teacher, from helping his peers in school to teaching karate while working towards black belt to hosting a band on the Kids On Stage summer camp in Leipers Fork. As he aged, that passion manifested in training roles. He has been a traveling trainer for Jason's Deli and Development coach for a non profit. All of these winding paths have prepared him for his role as the Mathnasium man with many hats! On the weekends he loves to play video games (he is also an avid ESports fan), play with his daughter Luna, wife Wynter, and his puppy Lilly, or look through his telescope. He hopes to hear your best math joke soon!!!!

Charles Pritchett

Center Director
Charles Pritchett, Center Director Hi, I’m Charles Pritchett, the center director at Mathnasium of Green Hills! Before starting work at Mathnasium I graduated with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Computer Science from the University of Virginia. I worked as an instructor for the past few years and have come to absolutely love the program and how it teaches students not just to do math, but how to learn and solve real problems that they’ll encounter. I really enjoy getting to know each student and talking to them about their hobbies and what they’re passionate about! I greatly value doing everything we can to inspire the students to make and work towards their own goals while they are here.Some of my favorite hobbies include basketball, playing video games, watching tv series and movies, cycling, roller skating, and video editing! I love to talk about these things to anyone and even better if there’s a real world math application in there somewhere!

Paul Klockenkemper

Lead Instructor
A Nashville native, Paul began studying music production before pursuing a degree in physics at Tennessee State University. Physics offered a chance to try and understand fundamentally how the universe works. After taking so many math classes to support his physics studies, he also achieved a degree in math. Math is in everything. It's in the planets circling the solar system, the music we listen to, and in the device on which you are reading this. Math is in the basic, fundamental make up of everything. And an understanding of math is the greatest, most wide-reaching toolbox one can have. It's not something to fear. Helping kids understand that they have the capacity to learn math is important and will assist them is becoming better students in all areas. When he is not officially trying to help others understand math better, Paul is often trying to help himself understand math better. He also enjoys video games and video game history, comic books, playing his guitar, and riding his motorcycle.

Shylo Elliott

Instructor
My name is Shylo Elliott, and I’ve been an Instructor at Mathnasium of Green Hills since August 2021, and I mainly work with @Home students based in both the Green Hills and Hendersonville locations. I have a degree in Recording Industry from MTSU from 2013, but math has been a passion for me throughout my life. It’s a pleasure to work with the students who come through Mathnasium, and it’s exciting to see how they develop as people, and it’s really made me consider a career turn towards education. My goal is to turn math anxiety into math enthusiasm, and my belief is that everyone has the capability to do math. I also want to do my best to help the students who come through Mathnasium to become better people, not just better math students.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
