Our staff is built to teach each student individually, to develop the skills they need to thrive in mathematics, and to foster a love of learning.

Jeremy Higdon

Born in a blizzard, Jeremy has spent years honing his teaching and tutoring skills. He has a degree in Actuarial Science from UTC, and a Master's degree in Math from UTK. He has been at Mathnasium since 2015, making him the instructor that's been at the center for the longest! He loves to watch lightbulbs light up as students gain understanding! His favorite Hydra(4), because it is really REALLY big!

Justin Ballew

A Chattanooga native, Justin has grown up in and around the area all his life. Having graduated with his Bachelor's in Physics from UTC, he's now pursuing his Master's degree at the same school. When he's not tutoring kids in math, he loves running, biking and all things outdoors. To keep a healthy balance, he's also a big gamer and loves pillars of nerd culture such as Star Wars and Marvel! Along with helping them in math, he loves sharing these passions with the kids!

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.
