Clayton Jowers is one of our elite instructors at Mathnasium of Pensacola,

whose job it is to teach kids to feel confident and become successful in math. We interviewed Clayton to give you a sneak peak of how great he is:

So, Clayton, What do you love most about teaching here? A: I really enjoy helping the kids truly understand the math topics that they are learning. I feel as though in many cases, they come to us with a strong distaste for math, but I strive to help them see that math is fun, useful, and, most importantly, makes sense!

What's your favorite success story at Mathnasium? A: A younger student at my Mathnasium center is very interested in my life and what I do outside of teaching math. Every time we meet she and I exchange our favorite things about the week and what we learned at school. On days that I wear contacts instead of glasses, she is always quick to ask where my glasses are. Interactions like those are super fun and brighten any day no matter how dreary.

If I was to catch you at your favorite local restaurant, what would it be and what would you order? A: In Pensacola, my favorite local restaurant is Flounders which is a seafood restaurant on the beach. I usually order whatever the catch of the day is, as well as their bang-bang shrimp appetizer.

What is your favorite place to go on the weekend? A: I usually spend my weekends with my friends or with my partner watching movies, playing board games, or walking in the park on the bay. I enjoy the quiet so the park is a hot spot for me!

Tell me that last movie you saw and enjoyed. A: Well, I'm a HUGE fan of StarWars and, despite having seen it before, I watched Episode 3 most recently (just last night) and of course I enjoyed it tremendously.
