Our staff is built to teach each student individually, to develop the skills they need to thrive in mathematics, and to foster a love of learning.


Center Director
I am a Virginia Commonwealth University graduate with a B.S in Chemistry - Biochemistry concentration. Ever since I was little, I had fostered a great passion for Mathematics. I truly enjoyed applying the knowledge that I’ve acquired in class in solving challenging problems as I saw them as some sort of fun game rather than a task. In spite of my love for Math, I still had to go to a supplemental math academy back then in order to solidify my math foundation as well as fill in any gaps that I had. For such a reason, I wanted to become a Mathnasium instructor to help kids excel in math as I’m aware of the importance of a supplemental academy like Mathnasium on the journey of becoming a great, successful mathlete.


Lead Instructor
I am a Virginia Tech graduate with a BS in Mathematics. When I was young, I did well in my math classes but never really had a big passion for it. However, after taking calculus in high school I saw a glimpse of how beautiful math can really be, and my passion for it started to develop. I even started to teach myself all sorts of interesting mathematics in my spare time just for fun. My hope is that I can help others enjoy and succeed in the subject I love and potentially foster a similar passion for math in others!


I am a senior attending Virginia Tech as a Computer Science Major. I was greatly helped along by friends, colleagues, and teachers when I studied calculus in high school and continue to be helped along by those same people now in more advanced classes like Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra. I understand how helpful a program like Mathnasium can be in fostering mathematical literacy. As an instructor, it's my sincere hope that I can do my part, however small, to help students understand the world a little better through math."
