Our Team

Our specially trained math instructors will teach your child how to understand math in an individual setting; our unique approach enables us to explain concepts really well and lend a helping hand to every student. Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn! Read below to learn more about our talented team:

  Scott Penkova, Regional Director

Scott has worked with Mathnasium, first as a Center Director in Fort Mitchell and now as the Regional Director of four locations, Blue Ash, Mason, West Chester and Fort Mitchell, KY.  He came to Mathnasium after working for years in different school settings, from public to private, and brick and mortar to online!  He uses the many different experiences to help students achieve high levels of understanding in mathematics.  He works closely with all of his Centers' staffs to make sure that they are giving the same emphasis on understanding and passion towards what we do.  He still works on instructing students in our one-on-one model but also enjoys being able to cultivate each instructor into the best teacher they can be.  When he isn't working you will find him spending time with his wife and two children.  He also enjoys being outside and reading books.


 Tyler Bartruff, Center Director

Tyler has worked on his associates degree in Architecture at Cincinnati State then continued onto Northern Kentucky University to study Business Leadership.  While being raised in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati school system, Tyler is well versed in Mathematic curriculum and application. His passion for Math has accompanied him throughout his studies, and he began tutoring as a second job in 2014.  He found Mathnasium while tutoring at a small locally owned business and working as a Commercial Project Coordinator in Construction.  He immediately found the value of the Mathnasium program, and worked his way up to Center Director.   Now, Tyler utilizes his passion by sharing Mathnasium with the community.  He strives for filling the learning gaps of the struggling students, challenging the advanced students and recruiting instructors that share his passion (he calls them math junkies).  Tyler is a single father who values hard work, positive attitudes, and relationship building.  He looks forward to meeting with you and breaking down his Math Formula- Confusion + (Support * care * encouragement)  = understanding = GROWTH!
