Lead Instructor
James graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's Degree in Asian Humanities; however, he has always been interested in helping kids learn -- from language arts to mathematics. After seeing the effects that the pandemic has had on his younger sister's education, he decided to act further on his interests and found his place at Mathnasium. James believes that learning should be enjoyable, but also recognizes the importance of building a solid foundation. Helping students strengthen and extend their mathematical knowledge is his top priority. When not working with kids, he enjoys drawing, creating music, and writing.


Janeth graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Cal State Dominguez Hills, where she previously worked as a math tutor. She is passionate about helping students build strong mathematical foundations so they can reach more advanced levels of math, and enjoys sharing various problem-solving approaches to make learning more interesting. Her hobbies include learning new coding languages, reading, and craft making.

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.
