Mathnasium Instructors

The Mathnasium of Holly Springs team is passionate about math education and math tutoring. Our passion to inspire children, fused with our knowledge of math, creates extraordinary experiences for our students. We make math make sense! We make math fun! All of our math instructors go through an extensive interview process which includes an evaluation of their ability to work with students. It's one thing to be knowledgeable in math, but we ensure our instructors have the ability to breakdown and teach math to students. Instructors must also pass a math literacy test to validate their math abilities. Before officially being hired, Mathnasium instructors go through a background check. Upon joining the team, our math instructors go through an extensive training process that includes understanding the Mathnasium Method, best practices in math education, techniques for successful math tutoring, and proven strategies for working with students of different abilities to create a personalized math tutoring session. Whether the student is advanced and gifted, on level and needs help staying there, or needs help catching up, our instructors are trained to ensure children have a successful productive experience at Mathnasium. Most of our instructor team is made up of individuals who are currently attending local high schools or are studying at local colleges & Universities.
