Devin Q.

Devin earned his BS in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and hopes to someday earn his PhD in Mathematics and become a college professor. He tutored math at the college level for 3 years at Northern Essex Community College and was a Teaching Assistant for a math program in partnership with Raytheon before joining the Mathnasium team. When teaching at NECC, he was disheartened by how many students he saw give up on their fields of study due to not being able to break the required math barrier. He loves teaching math because he knows what it is like to not understand it. He fell in love with overcoming the challenges Math presented, and his truest passion is sharing his knowledge with students in the hopes of helping them overcome their own challenges. He firmly believes everyone can succeed and perhaps even come to love math, and he is excited to be given the opportunity to help young minds grow at Mathnasium! In his spare time, Devin loves going to the gym, listening to music, and playing basketball. When he is home, he enjoys playing video games with his friends and watching anime.
