Avery

Instructor
"Teaching at Mathnasium has blessed my life tremendously. I have gotten the opportunity to work with many students and learned much about being a math instructor throughout my time at Mathnasium. One of the most important foundations of being an instructor is to meet students where they are in learning. In my teaching, this involves taking into consideration my students' educational background, interests, and learning styles to help each student in the best way possible. One of my important goals in teaching is to help students gain more confidence in doing math. We don't freely give answers to problems, but we help students chart the path to solving each question. This helps students use the knowledge they already possess to solve problems and build on their confidence. My most important goal is to be encouraging to students, and to let them know that I believe in them to the fullest. Teaching at Mathnasium has been the best part of my day for a long time, and I am honored to help each student make this small step of learning toward their bright futures." Avery St. Julian graduated from Sparkman High School in 2020. He currently attends the University of Alabama in Huntsville and is double majoring in Mathematics and Piano Pedagogy. He specializes in Algebra. In his spare time, Avery enjoys serving his community, helping others succeed, and leading worship for the Youth.
