Anup Wassan, Co-owner and Center Director

It is all about having fun! Co-owner and Center Director of both the Mathnasium of West  Marietta and the Mathnasium of North Alpharetta, Anup spent two years at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada studying Geology. With a dynamic personality that enjoys trying challenging endeavors, he changed gears and returned to Atlanta to attend Georgia Trade School, where he earned multiple welding certifications from the American Welding Society. He worked for a structural steel fabrication company, where he discovered his strong leadership skills. Having grown up in a family of entrepreneurs, coupled with his experiences of working with children as a cap counselor for many summers, he stumbled upon Mathnasium. Also a former student of Mathnasium, at the age of 14, and realizing the benefits he gained in learning math the Mathnasium way, this was a perfect fit. Anup achieves great joy when his students gain personal confidence as they learn math the way that makes sense to them. With a commitment to sharing the Mathnasium Method with his students, he starts each day with enthusiasm. Full of energy, Anup loves hiking, biking, working with metal, scuba diving, and martial arts.

Mathnasium inspires curiosity and teaches students how to learn!!”
