Kody KimberlKody Kimberl, Lead Instructor

Hi! My name is Kody and I am happy to have been an Instructor for Mathnasium since my senior year of high school. I am about to complete my second year at UWF. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed and excelled in math. I am so thankful for this opportunity to use this gift to help others. I know I can help inspire your child to love math too!

Betsy is the one in the glasses.




Kody KimberlChuck Russell, Instructor

Hi, my name is Chuck and I am one of the “vintage” instructors at Mathnasium of Pensacola. I am recently retired and spent the last thirty years of my career working as an Operations Research Analyst for the United States Army, Marine Corps and, most recently, with the United States Navy. I enjoy what we do here and love watching young minds develop and acquire an enjoyment of math.  All of our students are “top notch” learners and it’s my pleasure to instruct and learn with (and sometimes from) them.



Jeremy HerrenJeremy Herren, Instructor

My great loves are math, science, cooking, and teaching. This coming fall, I will be a student at the University of South Alabama pursuing a degree in Biomedical Sciences and Business Administration. I started working at Mathnasium during the summer of 2020 and have loved every minute of it. My favorite thing to do is play math games with out students! 



Jane ChakrabortyJane Chakraborty, Instructor

Hello, I’m Jane! I am a freshman at University majoring in Chemistry and Jazz Studies. I absolutely love working at Mathnasium! The kids make being an Instructor so much fun! My absolute favorite thing is getting to see their progress, even if they don’t realize themselves that they are making it. I can not wait to get to know your students, too, and help them become more confident in math.  


Kody KimberlElla Griffith, Instructor

I have enjoyed working at Mathnasium since August 2020. I graduated from PHS’s IB program and am currently taking a gap year before I begin attending Notre Dame University in the fall of 2021. My favorite part about teaching at Mathnasium is seeing how the students' skills develop and how their confidence with math consequently grows! My hobbies include learning and speaking foreign languages (German, French, and Japanese), singing, playing piano, and spending time outdoors. 


Kody KimberlMelissa Kruse, Instructor

Melissa currently attends Pensacola High School. She started out as a Mathnasium student, filling in a couple of missing pieces and supporting her need for a little bit of homework help. Despite the frustration that came with learning under new Covid restrictions, she moved through her material quickly and quickly stopped needing support for her homework. We are excited to add her enthusiasm for math to our team!
