Alexa Camilli

Owner / Curriculum Expert
Alexa received her Bachelor's degree in Multimedia, with a Minor in Mathematics. While owning Mathnasium of Longmont, Alexa continues to teach 7th grade math in Adams 12. She has acquired nearly 7 years of experience working in a handful of Mathnasiums from Florida to Colorado. In fact, it was being introduced to the Mathnasium Method that inspired her to become an educator. Math has always been Alexa's favorite subject, and for her, it has always been fun. Her goal now is to destroy the misconception that some kids just aren't good at math. She sponsors Rubiks Cube clubs, attends Mathlete competitions with her students, and creates fun math activities for her lessons, all in hopes of showing kids that math is everywhere, math is cool, and math is FUN! Math is even present in this featured photo of Alexa, where she is making the sine wave with her arms!

Kirsten Lotz

Assistant Center Director
Kirsten received her Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Purdue University. She has been helping people with math since childhood starting with guiding one sister through many math homework frustrations and entertaining both sisters with ad-lib stories about "The Adventures of Super Mathematician!" After college, she and her husband worked as programmers at IBM until she became a full-time mom of two boys. Both sons got the math gene, which has led to many nerdy dinner conversations including the ones they now share with their wives. She has spent many volunteer hours at church and at her sons' school where she also did some substitute teaching. Her favorite part of the day was always math time!

Elad Michael

Lead Instructor
Elad received his Bachelor's degree in Physics and Mathematics from Stony Brook University, and is currently wrapping up a PhD in Control System Theory at the University of Melbourne Australia (remotely, of course!). All through middle and high school, he never thought he was a “math kid”, until he got to college and absolutely fell in love with math. He is excited to show others the amazing side of mathematics.

Nicole Kershner

Instructor
Nicole is a senior at Peak to Peak Charter School. She loves math because it's a great way to build critical thinking and problem solving skills! After high school, she hopes to go to college to study Computer Science and Mathematics. Nicole is a hilarious and enthusiastic instructor! Students can always count on her to make their session exciting and fun!

Gracie Zhang

Instructor
Gracie is a senior attending Silver Creek High School, and studying Calc III at Front Range in the fall. She loves the world of mathematics because each level builds on one another and is beautifully connected. She also finds interest in figuring out various problems like solving pieces to a puzzle. Gracie enjoys spending time volunteering at CU STEM camps to further pursue her interest in mathematics; she hopes to share her passions with other students as well! Gracie plans to pursue a major in Engineering & Mathematics.

Colleen Rush

Instructor
Colleen received a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Purdue University and a Master’s in Business from Harvard. She retired last year after a long career as a Program Manager in New Product Development, most recently from Medtronic. She has a passion for demystifying math and helping others experience how much fun it can be. She also believes fervently, now more than ever, how much math competence can significantly expand career opportunities and literally change lives!

Jack Bowman

Instructor
Jack received his Bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in mathematics at Louisiana Tech University. He moved to Colorado two years ago because he loves the mountains and backpacking. Math and science teaching run in his family, so working as an instructor at Mathnasium was an obvious choice. Jack describes himself as a free spirit, who is eager to learn about anything and everything from math and science to history to cooking to gardening. He also loves road trips, and has driven through fifteen states and counting. Jack believes that reading and math skills are two of the most important and useful skills a child can learn, and he wants to show kids that both can be fun!

Elena Rodrigues Chavez

Instructor
Elena received their Bachelor’s degree in Pure Mathematics from the University of California, Riverside, and is now working towards their PhD in Mathematics from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Elena fell in love with the theory behind mathematics that went beyond computation, and will sometimes work through problems for fun. They want to work towards making math seem more approachable, and build up the confidence of those who have been discouraged from it due to a few negative experiences. Anyone can do math, we just have to start somewhere! This digital artwork of Elena was created by Mina, one of our students!

Tarini Mathur

Summer Instructor
Tarini recently graduated from Niwot High School and plans on studying Engineering and Economics at NYU. Math was not a strong subject for her until she started attending Mathnasium in middle school. The center was instrumental in helping her fall in love with math and climb the ladder of difficulty as she completed an IB Diploma. She is excited to give back to Mathnasium this summer by showing other kids how interesting the subject can be. Besides math, Tarini is also passionate about coding, running and watching movies. If you ever need recommendations on what to binge, don’t hesitate to ask.

Natalie Ingegneri

Instructor
Natalie is a junior at Niwot School. She likes math because she enjoys the process of working through a problem and figuring it out independently. Math hasn’t always been her strongest subject, which is why she finds it rewarding when you’re able to solve something with minimal help. Other than math, she also loves spending time with her friends/sisters and practicing trumpet. She also likes playing Animal Crossing and watching shows with her sisters. She wants to help more kids work through problems, and instill the same passion that she experienced when a new math concept would “click”.

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.
