Mayank Patel

Director of Marketing and Community Outreach
Mayank earned a Master degree in Innovation and Technology from Boston University. He has 20 years of experience working in information technology utilizing mathematics for product design, development, testing, and quantitative analysis. He has always had a love for math, and after teaching with his two children and others at their school, he realized how much of a need there is for instruction above and beyond what school provides. Every student can succeed and even excel in math with the proper tools and support. Mayank's ultimate goal is to help students to understand math and become mathematically fluent. He is looking forward to empowering the children in the community with math skills which will boost their confidence level and make them great innovators. He believes that "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for life" and he agrees strongly with the Mathnasium mission: "To teach math to students in a way that makes the most sense to them."
