                                Larry Martinek, Chief Instructional Officer

  "Children don’t hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math.   With understanding comes passion, and with passion comes growth—a treasure is unlocked.”  
— Larry Martinek. 










 Larry has spent his entire career finding a better way to teach math.   From the inner city to public schools,
 to acclaimed magnet schools, to leading private and parochial schools, Larry has served as both a classroom   teacher and as an educational consultant. He has designed curriculum, teaching strategies, and educational   materials designed to help students and educators learn math more effectively.

  He has trained teachers in the art and science of boosting students' ability to “do” math, thereby increasing   students' math scores and feeling of self-worth. Larry is the developer of Mathnasium’s educational program –   one of the most comprehensive and innovative curricula ever produced for teaching math.

 While Larry is not an Instructor at our Center, he is a valuable asset we can call on to ask about particular   students' scenarios for guidance and advice. This has helped to make visits more productive and enjoyable for   many of our students.

Francine C., Center Director

"Dedicated to ensuring a unique experience for each learner at various stages. Francine believes that determination and dedication lead to growth and success."

 After spending over a decade in the non-profit world, Francine recently joined the Mathnasium family where she serves as Center Director for Mathnasium of Hanover. Math has always been one of her favorite subjects and she enjoys helping others foster confidence and develop new skills and a passion for Math. After her own experience as a mom seeking help for her 4th grader, Francine found Mathnasium and admits that her life and daughter's feelings towards math have since changed drastically. Working for Mathnasium has allowed her to bring together two of her passions: Math, and service to others. When she first became exposed to the Mathnasium method, she was amazed to see how much easier it was to follow and explain. 

Francine has enjoyed watching her own children grow in their love for   Math and is looking forward to witnessing the magic with more children. Her favorite part of being a part of the   Mathnasium team is greeting students and families as they walk in, excited to tackle a new challenge.

 A mother of three active girls, Francine enjoys learning about various cultures, cooking, exercising, and   dancing.

                                      Ashley D., Lead Instructor

 Ashley has always had a natural love for math. She has always been
 in accelerated math classes, including higher-level math in the   International Baccalaureate program, and loves every minute of the   subject. She has greatly enjoyed helping students of different ages   not only understand but grow to appreciate math. She values being   able to guide students towards an understanding of math's   application to the real world, through gaining confidence in their   math skills with Mathnasium. 
 Outside of Mathnasium, Ashley is part of the soccer and varsity lacrosse teams in school. She also in her free time takes part in mock trials, a law program for high school students.

  Lindsey A., Instructor

Lindsey (she/they), nicknamed "Link" by the students of Mathnasium, is a graduate student at Northeastern University.  She recently finished her undergraduate degreee at Northeastern, and she is now pursuing a master's degree in bioinformatics with a concentration in software engineering and data analytics. She worked in a biotechnology lab throughout college and hopes to work as a data scientist after grad school. Lindsey is originally from Kingston, MA, and graduated from Silver Lake Regional High School in the top 1% of her class. She always enjoyed math classes and was the captain of the math team for two years in high school.

In her spare time, Lindsey enjoys playing and DMing Dungeons & Dragons, playing video games, reading, writing, and walking with her dog. Lindsey tutored math all throughout high school and has thoroughly enjoyed working with students at Mathnasium.                                       


Kyle A., Instructor

Kyle is a recent graduate from Norwell High School who will be studying Biochemistry at UCLA in the fall.  Mathmatics has always been one of Kyle's strengths, being a long-term member of his school's math team and an AP student in calculus.  However, his favorite part of math doesn't involve learning it; but actually teaching it!  He loves taking a seemingly boring subject, like mathmatics, and turning it into a fun, interesting topic that students look forward to progressing in.  Kyle believes that, even though not all may start with the same knack for math, everyone can enjoy some level of advancement in the subject, and he works to ensure that all of his students reach that point here at Mathnasium.  

Outside of work, Kyle likes to run, play guitar, and walk his dog, Molly.  He also enjoys learning random areas of mathematics for fun in his free time.


 Ben B., Lead Instructor

Ben is a junior at Northeastern University, majoring in physics and minoring in math.  Ben has always been into the sciences, and with that naturally came a love for the math used in the field.  Through his academic career, he found many opportunities to take what he has learned, and help others learn and master it as well.  While his final goal is to work on the frontier of physics, Ben wanted to continue this tradition of teaching during college, and so found his way to Mathnasium. 


Outside of Mathnasium, Ben loves games, whether they be board games, video games, card games, or tabletop games.  He also enjoys the odd camping trip and jazz show.



 Ben K., Lead Instructor

Ben is a senior at Northeastern University, majoring in math and minoring in law and public policy.  Ben has loved math since he took statistics in high school.  Throughout his high school and college years he has learned numerous strategies to learn and emphasize different parts of math.  From teaching friends to asking insightful questions, he has been on ends of numerous math learning experiences.

When he isn't doing math, Ben likes watching soccer and playing chess.


                               Reese J., Lead Instructor 

 Currently is a recent graduate of Norwell High School,   Reese has always claimed one subject as her favorite   subject: math. She is currently a freshman in college. As   a Mathnasium instructor for several years, Reese has   enjoyed helping and motivating students to learn   efficient ways to solve problems and grow confidence in   their critical thinking abilities. As an avid math student   and a helpful classmate, Reese has been tasked by   teachers to help explain mathematical concepts to peers   throughout middle and high school.   

Now, Reese enjoys helping Mathnasium students develop a grasp and love of math to match her own. Outside of Mathnasium, Reese enjoys soccer, swimming, and playing tennis. She is the President of a club: Norwell for South Sudan, a captain in soccer, a member of the math club, and an active participant in her Church youth group.

                                                                    Seth M., Instructor

After a summer of engineering experience prior to starting high school, Seth was hooked on math.  His experience with science and mathematics came with growing up in a Montessori school, where students were encouraged to explore the things they loved about learning and hold on to those passions.  Apparently, Seth is still holding on, since he has just started his senior year at Norwell High School taking as many math and science classes as possible.  

Always interested in how things work, Seth loves fostering a sense of wonder in students who are curious about the world. As an instructor, Seth draws on his experience with Montessori education and multi-age classrooms to get an idea of the challenges students can face with math, helping them to gain confidence by building on where they currently are in the subject.

Beyond the center, Seth is off programming devices for the Norwell Robotics team, coooking with his family, learning parkour, and building                                                                          with Legos.
