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.



Hi! My name is Conor. I earned a degree in applied math from the University of Colorado Boulder. I'm annoyed, but understanding, when people put me on a pedestal for being good at math. What I've learned for myself, and from my professors, is that being successful in math isn't predetermined at birth, but rather a result of hard work, just like any other skill. This fact, in addition to the math itself, is what I want students to learn. I want them to be able to use their mathematical abilities when necessary and learn more math if that is something they want/need to do. I was attracted to Mathnasium because of it's demonstrated success in helping students excel in math. I know what it feels like to shift from being confused by a math concept to understanding it, and want to help Mathnasium's students achieve the same feeling.

In my free time you will find me reading, hiking, spending time with my family (and dogs!), playing disc golf, and, of course, doing math! My current math project is working to understand the water waves that arise in my Nalgene bottle.


Favorite Number and Why: 3435. Because 3 3 + 4 4 + 3 3 + 5 5 = 3435.

Favorite Math Joke: Have you heard about the mathematician who is afraid of negative numbers? He will stop at nothing to avoid them!

In 5 years I will be . . . . Studying applied math in graduate school.

Fun Fact: I can solve a Rubik’s cube in under a minute. I can also solve cubes with 4, 5, 6, and 7 layers (the normal Rubik’s cube has 3 layers).



Hi my name is Sullivan (that's my last name but it is how I preferred to be called). I am privileged to be part of building confidence in a difficult subject. I want to foster a tenacious mindset: the belief that difficulties can be overcome with perseverance. I believe that mindset will serve students well throughout their lives, even beyond the realm of math. I liked math in middle school, but my high school did not have a good math program. I knew I needed a high SAT score to get into my college of choice, so I studied on my own. I often wished I knew someone who could help. After college, I noticed my friend Zach would always come back from work with an interesting story, energized by a passion for teaching. I thought: hey, I'd like to teach math too!

Favorite Number and Why: My favorite number is 60 because it can be neatly divided so many ways: it has 12 factors, and the first six factors are in sequence: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. This is why we use it for measuring time. The number 72 is also good, but not as good.

Favorite Math Joke: There are three kinds of people in this world; those who can count, and those who can't.

What are your dreams? I want to design tabletop role playing games (like Dungeons & Dragons): create imaginative spaces where people can strive and play as avatars of their best selves.

In 5 years I will be . . . . A published Board Game Designer



Hi my name is Luke. I am an undergraduate student at Colorado School of Mines. I am currently studying Engineering Physics with a Minor in Applied Mathematics. I have always loved math and science, and I love helping others enjoy learning it as well. I grew up in Elko, Nevada, a place with plenty of mountains, so naturally, I love hiking, skiing, camping, and spending time outdoors. I think that being good at math isn’t s skill that your born with, but it’s something that you can get better at through practice, and hard work. I’ve struggled with math in the past, and the reason I’ve succeeded is by asking for help and trying to deeply understand the concepts. I used to be a college STEM tutor, and I was able to help student who struggled with the basics of math succeed in their classes.

Favorite Number: 52 has always been my favorite number. I don’t think there’s any specific reason. Maybe its because 5+2 = 7, the universal lucky number.

Favorite Math Joke: How do you make seven even?. . . .Take away the S.

I love Mathnasium because . . . . .I can see how impactful it is on kids’ lives. It’s always awesome to see someone who struggled at math start to excel at it.

Hobbies: I love hiking, playing hockey, and playing video games.



Hi! My name is Jason, and I'm an upcoming Senior at ThunderRidge High School. I'm part of the football team, and love being outdoors and staying active. I decided to apply at Mathnasium because it seemed like the perfect place for a first job. I have never had any trouble with math in school, and being an older sibling as well as helping my mom run her at-home daycare has given me experience working with kids. I thought why not put my talents to use making a positive difference in a child's life instead of flipping burgers in a greasy kitchen? While working here at Mathnasium, my primary goal is obviously to teach math to students and deepen their understanding of math. However, I hope that while teaching these students can develop an attitude of perseverance that will help them not only in math but for the rest of their lives.

Favorite Number: 1 is my favorite number because it's the only positive integer that's not a prime or composite number.

Favorite Math Joke: What do baby parabolas drink?

Quadratic formula.

In 5 years I will be . . . Pursuing a degree in Physics or Engineering

Favorite Math Topic: While it wasn't easy to learn, calculus was my favorite math topic because it has interesting and useful applications in physics.



Hello my name is Jacob, I graduated from Colorado School of Mines with an undergrad degree in statistics in 2020. I have recently moved back to Colorado and am pursuing a masters degree online through the University of Florida. One of my goals is to help make math more accessible to people in their everyday life, and I believe that being a part of the mathnasium team will help to accomplish this goal.

Favorite Number and Why: 42, it is the secret to everything.

Favorite Math Joke: Teller: Why was 6 afraid of 7 Listener: I don’t know Teller: Because 7 ate 9. Teller: But why did 7 eat 9 Listener: I don’t know Teller: Because it is important to eat 3 squared meals a day

Fun Fact: I was not able to snap my fingers until my Sophomore year in college.

Favorite Math Topic and Why: Probability, it helps us to predict likelihood of events before they happen
