Ryan I, Assistant Center Director
Ryan has a long history with Mathnasium in many seats. He was a once a AP Calc student who was able to lock down great grades with a little extra attention to homework and test preparation. Next, he was a Math Beast turned Instructor. Years later, he is now La Costa's Assistant Center Director where he not only contributes to our instructional team, but maintains and improves our high level of customer service, parent relations, and operational responsibilities.
Claudia, Lead Instructor
Claudia relocated to the area from Massachusetts where she was a middle school Special Ed teacher. She is a career educator with a passion for helping students acheive their goals. Her positive approach helps children gain confidence, which is an essential ingredient to learning and growing mathematically. She is a fantastic consultative resource.
Robert, Lead Instructor
Robert is a math pro and able to easily transition from young students to our high schoolers. He is able to clearly explain math processes, calculations and problem solving so students build up their knowledge base with the right amount of support. This transitions well into the classroom.
Fred is sharing a part of his retirement by dispensing his broad mathematical knowledge with our students. He is patient and thorough, making sure all steps are understood in the process. He works with our middle level math students in making prealgebra, algebra, and the prerequisite levels of math more easily understood.
Karen Lossing, Executive Director
Karen is the hands-on owner of Mathnasium of La Costa. Karen has served as a 3rd, 5th and Special Ed teacher, math curriculum writer, and elementary school administrator. Karen has always loved math, and upon relocating from Texas jumped at the opportunity to spend her day working with her team helping children in the Carlsbad / La Costa community to truly understand math by teaching it in the way that makes sense to them.
After a couple years of being a seasonal instructor in our center, Libby recently graduated from UCLA and has joined onto our team as the Director of Operations. While she is no stranger to the instruction and tutoring aspects of our center, Libby focuses on the community involvement side of our center. So if you have any school events or sponsorship opportunities you would like Mathnasium of La Costa to be involved in, Libby is your girl!
