Tammie Yoakum

Owner
Hello, my name is Tammie Yoakum, and I grew up in Glendale with my sister/co-owner, Betsy. Before I started working in the center full time, I had a 30-year career in the premium finance industry. I was blessed to have that career, but Mathnasium is a ton more fun. The best part of being at Mathnasium is to see the "aha" moments and to see a students confidence grow. When I'm not working, I like spending time with my family and friends. I also love music, movies, reading and traveling.

A perfect learning environment.
