Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn! Read below to learn more about our talented team:
Jessica Saldivar, Center Director
Jessica was formally a Lead Instructor at the Mathnasium in Corona and was the Assistant Center Director for the Mathnasium in Temecula. She studied Neuroscience with an emphasis in Psychology at the University of California, Riverside. She plans to attend medical school in route to becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon. Jessica is fascinated with how children develop, both from a neuro-biological perspective, and also in a very practical sense when it comes to discovering new ideas and concepts. It excites Jessica to think about how much more there is to learn and discover about the brain and how much potential each child has to develop and grow. Whether it is a student who is years behind or one that is performing above their grade level, Jessica is always looking to help cultivate the learning process. Jessica also happens to be a lover of the arts. In fact, it was art and music that taught Jessica how fun math could be. To this day, she plays multiple instruments and is always up to learn something new (at the moment it’s Polynesian Dancing and rock climbing).
Zack M., Assistant Center Director
Zack comes to us as a Mathnasium alumni once upon a time ago. He was a part of our program when he was younger and has joined our team because of his love for math and helping others. Zack studies Biology at the University of California, San Diego and aspires to be a biophysicist. He enjoys nature and wildlife and intends on doing what he can to help preserve it. He has a passion for assisting students in accomplishing their goals and overcoming conflicts whether it pertains to math or other areas of life. Math has always been an easy subject for him and wishes to share that passion with others. His easy-going nature and witty humor allows him to connect with and relate to the students easily. He is a firm believer in making life simple and focusing on the solution rather than the problem.

Euge aspires to further his studies and major in Aerospace Engineering. He enjoys music and playing instruments such as the piano and guitar. He also holds an interest in cars, especially the mechanical side of things and how they function. He has always loved math because the concepts can be both interesting and challenging. This motivates him to work towards a greater understanding of the subject. He hopes to share his knowledge and passion with the students that he works with in the center.

Jeric is a current student working on his Business Marketing degree. He loves that math is everywhere and that there are patterns to be found in the math world and in the real world. He finds that math is handy in problem solving, not just in a textbook or classroom setting but in every day life. Jeric has many talents and hobbies which include dancing, singing, lifting weights and videography. He uses his talents and skills to be a positive role model for students and enjoys showing students in the center different methods of teaching and understanding difficult math concepts.
Alec M., Instructor
Alec has always been drawn to math, part of the reason being that math problems are like challenging puzzles that he enjoys solving. He enjoys playing soccer and other sports such as pole vaulting and football but also extends his hobbies to designing and coding video games.
