He enjoys teaching Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus to students of Middle School and High School levels. At Mathnasium, there are ample of opportunities to teach kids as well as mature students. For Sky: " As an instructor, it helps when you breakdown problems in simple operations and in coversation mix real life examples while teaching. The best part of working at Mathnasium is you meet lots of students who possess different levels of skills and therefore post special challenges for coaching them. " One of Sky's natural strength is to partition complex problems and explain their solutions to students by using elementary concepts. He gets satisfaction when students apply the skills and tools he introduced to solve sophisticated problems in Mathematics and Science. Outside Mathnasium, Sky has authored and published books about Light wave physics and Astronomy.
JOSEPH M., Senior Learning Center Instructor
Joe, as fondly called by the students, graduated from the University of California San Diego with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He has always been passionate about math and have been involved with tutoring or helping others throughout his entire education. Joe really enjoys tutoring and helping others with math. He learned that there isn't a single method to teaching a concept, and each student learns in a different way. For Joe: " Once you find the best method for each student, its surprising how quickly they learn new ideas and reach conclusions on their own... The best part of working at Mathnasium is being able to help empower students with the necessary skills or mindset and then watching them apply it to solve problems, that they weren't able to previously on their own."
ROXANA S., Learning Center Instructor
Roxana holds a degree in BS Neuroscience. She graduated from the University of California, Riverside in 2017. She has worked with children in various schools for years throughout her education by tutoring different ages and levels. Teaching fractions and percents is her favorite topic because she said she struggled a lot with them when she was younger. She finds teaching rewarding. She is constantly learning and improving her skills alongside with her students. For Roxana, "Every student learns differently and the curriculum at Mathnasium is one that all the students can adjust to and get through at their own pace...the environment is interactive, fun, and comfortable for the students which is so important especially when students are struggling with a topic. I've never seen so many students who previously struggled become so excited to learn math. It is very refreshing to be a part of a place that makes learning math such a positive experience."
