"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.

Francine C., Center Director
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.
Ashley D., Lead 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.
Clarissa G., Instructor
Clarissa is a rising sophomore at Tufts University. She is from Norwell, MA, and went to Fontbonne Academy in Milton, MA. She is majoring in Civil Engineering with a focus on health and policy. Since middle school, Clarissa has had an interest in math and more importantly a passion for teaching and working with children! In high school, she was a coordinator for the National Honor Society Tutoring Committee.
