After becoming aware of his own children's struggles with mathematics, Chris decided to bring the Mathnasium Method to the Greensboro and High Point communities.
Derek Anderson, Lead Instructor
Derek graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a minor in Astronomy. During his time at JMU, Derek served two years as the Vice President of the Fencing club, spent one summer working as a Councelor for a Space Explorers camp, and another summer in New Hampshire interning at AMC & Carthage Astronomy. Additionally, Derek discovered his passion for teaching while working at the John C. Wells Planetarium as an operator and educator for Astronomy. Derek is excited to be a part of the Mathnasium team because working as an instructor gives him the opportunity to use his own knowledge of math for the benefit of others. Derek loves Mathnasium because he gets to explore mathematical ideas with students and help them actually understand what is going on, rather than just telling them how to do it.
