Our staff is built to teach each student individually, to develop the skills they need to thrive in mathematics, and to foster a love of learning.

Robyn Helwig

Lead Instructor
Robyn Helwig (she/her/hers) is a current graduate student at College of Saint Mary studying Elementary Education with a K-6 Special Education endorsement. She moved from Oregon to teach theater at the Rose Theater, and has been a theater educator at the Rose, Omaha Community Playhouse, and the Apollon Arts Space for the past five years, working with students ages 4 to 18. She is also the Camp Director for Oxbow Animal Health’s junior vet camp, a summer camp exploring veterinary and animal science for 2nd-5th graders. During the school year she works as an educational assistant in the special education department at Oakdale Elementary in the Westside School District. When Robyn isn’t teaching, she enjoys getting back to her theatrical roots and designing props and sets for local theaters and making silly jokes with her improv teams. Robyn loves solving logic puzzles, making music, marathoning Netflix, and eating burritos. She lives in Omaha with four guinea pigs: Midnight, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and C.J., as well as her furry roommate, Pancake the Cat, (who has way more followers than she does on Instagram!).

Max Lauritsen

Instructor
Max is a sophomore at Creighton University majoring in neuroscience. He has math experience up to Calc III and differential equations, completing a multitude of geometry and algebra classes along the way. He enjoys being able to work at a place that fosters cooperation and the expansion of knowledge, and believes developing a connection to the topic is a critical tool for learning math. For leisure Max enjoys going to the gym, taking off on a run, watching YouTube, and seeing new places. His favorite number is e because it is almost untouchable.

Renea Panska

Instructor
Renea holds a B.A from the Mississippi State College for Women, a M.A.T. (Master of Arts for Mathematics Teachers) and has done work toward her PhD. Renea taught middle school, high school and college math students for decades at schools including the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Union College, Nebraska Wesleyan University and Southeast Community College. Married, a mother of 2, and grandmother of two, Renea is retired and enjoys reading, hobbies and travel.

Abby Schrieber

Instructor
Abby is a college freshman currently studying at University of Nebraska Omaha. She has completed a number of advanced math courses, including AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics. Abby’s experience in early ed ucation comes from her time as a theater education intern at The Rose Theater. She is lives in Omaha with her family, including her two dogs, Brooklyn and Toad. In her free time, Abby likes to crochet, watch TV, and wa lk her dogs. Abby's favorite number is 7 for reasons that remain mysterious.

Michaela Ziebell

Instructor
Michaela has an Associates degree in Science and was on the Dean's List multiple times. She is a Senior at UNO, majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Criminal Justice. She has always had a passion for math, including going to a math contest in 8th grade (placing 4th out of 100 students). Michaela has done a year of python programming, and found it came in handy for long math problems. She has tutored family and friends in mathematics, even her own parents. She spends her time reading and learning random facts that will help her if she's ever on Jeopardy. She loves spending time with her family and traveling. Her favorite number is a mole, 6.02×10^23 (Avogadro's number) because her chemistry teacher made the joke "Avogadro loves guaca-MOLE." Terrible pun, but she's never forgotten it.

James Le

Instructor
James is a UNO student studying to earn his teaching degree. While his focus is chemistry, his passion lies with the students. The subject doesn't matter as much as watching the lightbulbs turn on in the kids' heads. He's had many opportunities to work with students through his debate coaching career at Millard North and with UNO through practicum experiences. James has taken math classes such as AP Calculus BC/IB-DP Higher Level Math and frequently uses math in his chemistry and physics classes. When not doing math, he's enjoying playing video games, working out, or spending time with his friends. James's favorite number is 10. He's found that the number not only gives him a lot of luck, but it also shows up in a lot of things and tends to be a good number to strive to hit.
