Thomas Rutherford

Center Director
Thomas fell in love with math at an early age and was always encouraged to expand upon concepts with enrichment material provided by family members. During his time in high school, he was working as the Office Manager for his father’s business. After high school, Thomas attended Nova Southeastern University and majored in Biology while also pursuing a minor in Business. He eventually pursued a career in Hospitality Management before joining the Mathnasium Team. Thomas strongly believes in the power of mathematics and wants to help students overcome the fear and stress many students associate with mathematics.
