Minh Nguyen

Assistant Center Director
Hi there! My name is Minh, and I am one of the assistant center directors here at Mathnasium. I graduated from UCI with a B.S. in Pure Mathematics and a B.A. in Business Economics. To me, math is not about rote arithmetic and just solving equations. Instead, I believe that math is akin to solving an elaborate puzzle. Learning math helps to build our critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which are essential in life. In my free time, I really enjoy trying new boba places. I have tried at least 40 different places!

Julianne Duong

Hello! My name is Julianne Duong and I am currently a student at California State University, Fullerton. I aim to become a high school math teacher so I am working towards a degree in Mathematics as well as a teaching credential. Some of my hobbies including playing instruments and baking. I believe math is very important because of how widely utilized it is. Math is everywhere and it allows people to make amazing discoveries. People are able to build vehicles such as cars and they can construct buildings because of math. So many different careers and jobs require strong skills in math because of how essential it is. With math, the possibilities of what people can do are endless.

Hello! My name is Minh and I have recently graduated from CSULB with a Master’s degree in Mathematics. Math is a fundamental subject that plays a critical role in our daily lives and contributes to many fields such as science, technology, engineering, and finance. It helps us develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and logical reasoning skills that are useful not only in academic pursuits but also in the workplace and everyday decision-making.

Benson Phung

Instructor
Hi there! My name is Benson Phung and I am currently studying physics at UCI. Math is an imperative skill that I believe every student should succeed in. Whether it be calculating change at a restaurant to finding the tangent line of a curve, math has wide applications for both general use in life and advanced. As someone who had a hard time initially in becoming enthusiastic about math, and STEM in general, Mathnasium has shown me that they are committed to not only help students become efficient at math, but also motivate students with the subject. I want to do the best I can to help students improve and hone their mathematical thinking and skills and find enjoyment, and the methods that Mathnasium employ like Socratic thinking are pedagogical techniques I believe help facilitate this. When I’m not studying for university, I enjoy hiking at the beach or mountains, cooking, and listening to a variety of music.

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.
