Diana Poling

Diana has a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and has worked as a software engineer and taught Computer Literacy at the college level. Her family moved from West Virginia to Alabama in 2018 when her husband took a job here. Diana home schooled her three children, even through their high school years. Her daughter graduated from UAH in 2021 with a degree in Earth System Science/Meteorology and her youngest son is currently attending UAH pursuing a degree in Computer Science. Diana has experience working with special needs learners as her oldest son was diagnosed at a young age with an auditory processing delay and later tested to be slightly on the autism spectrum. Professionals, friends, and family alike have been amazed at his progress and success. Diana has always enjoyed math and won many Math Field Days and MathCounts competitions growing up. She loves helping others "demystify" math and see how useful and fun it can be. It's a joy to see that light bulb go off when a concept a student has been struggling with finally clicks. Diana also enjoys playing the piano with the worship team at their church and attending their small group Bible study. She's also an Independent Stylist for Lilla Rose Hair Accessories.

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.
