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.

Dylan Freedle

Lead Instructor
Dylan graduated with a degree in math from North Carolina State University in 2018. In high school, he experienced working with children as a Boy Scouts camp counselor. Dylan believes that being able to think outside the box is a great skill that, when practiced, can help with almost any kind of problem. As a result, he enjoys puzzles, brainteasers, and games of all kinds. Dylan enjoys teaching students math the Mathnasium way, in a way that makes sense to them.

Chris Curtin

Assistant Director/ Sr. Instructor
Dr. C was a scientist once upon a time, earning a PhD in astrophysics from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. He has experience teaching and tutoring math and science to pupils of all shapes and sizes. He’s been with Mathnasium for 3 years, and believes that with the right instruction and a bit of effort, anyone and everyone can make math make sense. Dr. C is a big fan of professional tennis, and dreams of some day attending Wimbledon in London.

Chloe Zdeb

Chloe is a Junior at Wake STEM Early College High School. This allows her to participate in and take classes at NC State University. Math has always been one of her strongest subjects, and growing up she was always helping classmates to understand math lessons. Realizing she had the ability to explain math in a different way that would make more sense to certain students, tutoring was an easy choice. She later found Mathnasium to further be able to help and teach students of all levels. Outside of work, Chloe partakes in many clubs and activities at her school. This includes founding a math based club at her school called “Math Nerds.” As co-founder, she creates math games and activities for any student to freely participate in at club meetings. She hopes to inspire as many students as possible to love math like she does.

Muhammad Khan

Muhammad is currently a junior studying aerospace engineering at NC State University. As a result, he uses math and physics everyday to solve problems. He has always had a passion for math and enjoys teaching others. His main goal at Mathnasium is to show students that math may not be as scary as it seems. Outside of work and school, Muhammad enjoys playing basketball, solving logic puzzles, and learning new instruments or sports. He is also busy with doing research in aerospace engineering at NC State. He hopes he can utilize the experience he has gained over the years to forward his passion for math.

Lanai Adams

Lanai Adams is a junior at North Carolina State University, studying Industrial & Systems Engineering. He chose this education path because of its intersection of interests between optimization, modeling, and design; all of which are things that interest him and propel him to want to solve problems using these methods. In a similar vein to his eventual career choice his interest and skill in mathematics comes from the fact that most of his other interests are either math-adjacent or require strong fundamentals. As someone who originally didn’t consider themselves good at math, he understands the importance methodology plays in instruction and education. Something he wants all of his students to walk away with is the idea that math is for everybody, and math is in everything. As a result, building your comfort with math vastly opens up your potential interests, career choices, as well as your ability to problem solve.

Eve Whitman

Eve is currently a junior at NC State University majoring in Aerospace Engineering. She has always excelled in STEM classes, and especially enjoys math and the process of looking at a problem and finding a solution to it. When she was in high school, she was a gymnastics coach, so has lots of experience working with kids. She believes that math is best learned when students are engaged and having fun, which is exactly the type of atmosphere that Mathnasium offers. In free time Eve likes to go on road trips, and hopes to someday go on a cross-country trip with her friends.

Mohamed Bedir

Early in the teaching journey Mr. Bedir worked as a teaching assistant at the American University in Cairo. He has been teaching students from different countries and backgrounds. His experience at AUC was very diverse and rich since he dealt with Egyptians, Europeans, and American professors and students with a broad spectrum of talents, cultures, and credentials. Later, he worked as a teaching assistant at Northeastern University, Boston, MA, and then at NCSU. He later taught Physics and Math to students from different disciplines. Mr. Bedir continually encourages his students to practice active engagement, critical thinking, and to embrace a willingness to challenge assumptions. One of his main objectives is to create a learning environment that fosters curiosity, creativity, and intellectual exploration and enables students to apply effective communication skills, as they are vital tools for their success in college and life, in general. Most importantly, he believes that learning should not be stressful or annoying, on the contrary, it should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Christopher Daube

Chris is a university student pursuing a double major in Physics and Mathematics. He has spent several years as a camp counselor and as a math tutor. Chris loves to encourage the natural curiosity of children. He believes math is a language anyone can learn and enrich their life with. As a musician and amateur astronomer he uses math to make art and explore the universe, and loves to share his excitement for looking at the world mathematically.

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.
