Riss Mendizabal

My name is Riss Mendizabal! I was born in Matanzas, Cuba and grew up in Miami and graduated from Ransom Everglades. Education is something I have always been passionate about. As a former instructor for Breakthrough Miami, I know first hand the importance of a strong mathematical foundation in children's lives. In my off time, I enjoy cooking and spending time with my 7 year old lab, Lenny.

Dmitry Zubchuk

Dmitry earned his Masters Degree in International Economics from the Diplomatic Academy in Moscow, Russia. Following his graduation, Dmitry worked for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before realizing that his real passion was working with children. This passion led Dmitry to join one of the largest international schools in Russia, working as a Student Support Services and ESL teacher for the next ten years. Dmitry’s goal has always been to make his students love the educational process, feel confident and independent, and provide them with skills and knowledge that they will use throughout their entire lives. Dmitry is really excited to be a part of the Mathnasium team!

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.
