Assistant Center Director
Mark was born and raised in Memphis but completed his undergraduate coursework at the University of Virginia in Charlottsville. He worked as a financial advisor until he retired to teach math in local middle schools back here in Memphis. He and his wife of 35 years have two children that they are very proud of. He says that what he likes best about working for Mathnasium is the opportunity to help students who may have been intimidated by or uninterested in math change their attitudes towards the subject through the fun environment.

Hobbies: Mark is an actor with Theater of Memphis and a cyclist

Favorite Math Jokes: Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9.


What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm in your apple.


Lead Instructor
Ryan, a Memphis native and aspiring educator, loves working at Mathnasium where work and play coincide. He says the atmosphere is fun and social, and the humor of the students lifts his spirits and brightens his days. Ryan graduated from Christian Brothers University with a Bachelor’s degree in Math and Computer Science and intends to return to school to pursue a career in education spurred on by the love of teaching that working at Mathnasium has ignited.

Favorite Sport: Hockey


Quinn, a graduate of the Mathnasium program, is a senior at White Station High School where she plays the oboe, piccolo, and clarinet in the band. She also plays the saxophone in her spare time and enjoys knitting, crocheting, and sewing. After graduation, she intends to pursue a career in the medical field.

Favorite Number: Negative 55 because I like the way 55 sounds in French, and nobody has a favorite negative number so I can’t let them feel left out.

Favorite Thing She's Crocheted: A set of miniature musical instruments.

Favorite Math Joke: Why do teenagers travel in groups of 3 or 5? Because they can’t even.

In five years: I will be… in college, proficient in all my musical instruments, and doing something in the health science field.

I love Mathnasium because: The environment and people make it a fun place to learn.


Owen is a current University of Memphis undergraduate majoring in Psychology with hopes of becoming a therapist. In the meantime, he finds fulfillment in teaching and likes the fact that his role here at Mathnasium makes a difference in the lives of our students.

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.
