Alan Brown

District Director
Alan was born in Las Vegas but spent the majority of his educational career in Northern Nevada. He went to Spanish Springs High School, where he was a triathlete and earned his advanced & honors diploma. During his time there, he took almost every math class his high school offered and often tutored his fellow classmates. He then attended the University of Nevada, Reno in pursuit of a Biology degree. After completing his first year of college, he decided to transfer to UNLV to finish his undergraduate program. It was shortly after this transition that he became an instructor for Mathnasium. This opportunity allowed him to share his passion for teaching and mathematics. He was a lead instructor for three years while he earned his degree in Cell and Molecular Biology. He spent two years as a Center Director, where he shared his enthusiasm with the families at Mathnasium of Red Rock.

Daniel is a human being that moved here in Las Vegas 3 years ago. He graduated back in the Philippines at 2020. This person likes math a lot... probably. Also, he genuinely likes helping out other people as he did on his college days. So, I think he loves what he does here at Mathnasium... probably. They say you get to know about a person based on their hobbies. This dude likes chess, Kpop, Pop Music, OPM, Taylor Swift, cooking, video games especially Pokemon, Castlevania, and Final Fantasy XIV... also, don't forget about manga, anime and a lot more and lastly, I think it's better to talk to him in person at Mathnasium if you want to know about this (lovely) person.
