CenterDirectorAlex Guppy, Owner

Alex received his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Kalamazoo College in Michigan. Shortly after graduating, Alex moved abroad to teach English in Taiwan - an adventure turned odyssey that lasted the next six years. When he was not teaching and having fun with his students, he was exploring the mountains and streams of the island. Eventually, home called and Alex returned to the States in 2013. In the Fall of 2014, Alex visited Chattanooga for a rock climbing trip. As the season passed by and frost began to accumulate on his tent each morning in Prentice Cooper State Park, Alex contemplated returning home to Michigan for the holidays, but then applied for a center director position at Mathnasium to provide math homework help on a whim. He cannot help but look back on his humble beginnings as a math tutor here in amazement.

In the beginning of 2018, Alex became the sole owner of both Mathnasiums in Chattanooga. He is honoured by all of the parents who have entrusted the safety and education of their children to him over the years (and left some fabulous reviews!) and helped him realize his dream of owning his own business. He is looking forward to providing math homework help to many more children in the coming years as he sets up shop in Nolensville, TN to open his fifth Mathnasium and offer math homework help across the state.

Seth Phillips, Center Director

Seth was born and raised in Brentwood. He graduated from Tennessee Tech with a major in Electrical Engineering. After a brief stint in the field, Seth found that his true passion is working with kids in his favorite subject: mathematics! Seth often tutored his peers in math while he was in high school and he saw first hand the effect it had on their confidence and self-image. He loves that at Mathnasium, he is empowered to give children the instruction and the material that they need to feel confident and successful.

Favorite Number: 8, since it's his birth month and his favorite pool ball as a kid.

Favorite Math Joke: What do you call friends who love math? AlgeBROS!

Fun Fact: Seth played percussion all through middle and high school.

She went back to school to study Advanced Mathematics and Mathematic Education.   She has been a tutor with Mathnasium since 2019 and loves watching students discover   something new each day!

 Favorite Math Joke: Why shouldn't you let math scare you? Because it's easy as pi!

 Hobbies: Playing the piano and cooking new and interesting recipes.


 Mikayla Lane, Instructor

Mikayla is a rising senior at Nolensville High School and loves all things math! The harder the math, the more engaging it is, especially after falling in love with calculus in her physics class. She also loves working with other people and watching others grow in their knowledge, and thinks it is amazing to see others understand and gin interest in the things she also enjoys.  

Fun Fact: Mikayla has chickens and goats, three of which are named Bippity, Boppity, and Boo!

Hobbies: Playing the piano, viola, guitar, and ukelele. She also likes to sketch and paint.
