Sid

Assistant Center Director
Hi! My name is Sidharth but I go by Sid. I currently am attending Santa Monica College majoring in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on Automotive Engineering. I have plans to go to school outside of California after finishing my major presentation classes. Before working with Mathnasium, I was a Sales Consultant for Best Buy for roughly 2 years and a Math Tutor at Santa Monica College. As a child, I struggled heavily with math. Once I started learning how to see math conceptually, I realized how much fun it really was. I love to show people that math is not just numbers you keep writing in order to figure out the answer, but a puzzle waiting to be finished. In my free time, I build fun things to drive, do some art, and try new places to eat. I love learning new ways to make fuel efficient cars that are still appealing on a larger scale.

Jonathan

Lead Instructor
Hello! My name is Jonathan, but my nickname is Jon Jon. Mathematics was always my strongest subject in school, but I didn't really fall in love with it until 8th grade when I first saw a proof of the quadratic formula. That's when I understood that math isn't just about calculating answers to problems, it's about reaching deep truths using logic and abstraction. After high school, I went to Santa Monica College where I became interested in philosophy. I found the subject fascinating because it, too, was about reaching deep truths with logical analysis. I later transferred to UCLA and graduated with a B.A. in philosophy and a minor in mathematics. After graduating, I worked as a Teaching Associate at CSUN where I taught calculus and mathematics for business majors. I have also tutored college students in calculus, pre-calc, and statistics. In my free time, I like to play video games with my friends, and watch anime (I'm a child at heart). I enjoy working with kids, and I hope to one day be a high-school math teacher.

Alan Brown

Regional Director
Alan was born in Las Vegas but spent the majority of his educational career in Northern Nevada. He went to Spanish Springs High School, where he was a triathlete and earned his advanced & honors diploma. During his time there, he took almost every math class his high school offered and often tutored his fellow classmates. He then attended the University of Nevada, Reno in pursuit of a Biology degree. After completing his first year of college, he decided to transfer to UNLV to finish his undergraduate program. It was shortly after this transition that he became an instructor for Mathnasium. This opportunity allowed him to share his passion for teaching and mathematics. He was a lead instructor for three years while he earned his degree in Cell and Molecular Biology. He spent two years as a Center Director, where he shared his enthusiasm with the families at Mathnasium of Red Rock. Alan is now honored to serve all of our locations as Regional Director and continue changing lives through math.

Kevin Boushy

Director of Education
Kevin graduated from UNLV in 2012 with a Bachelors in Sociology. His appetite for learning has always been borderline insatiable. His focus on education and learning lead him to Mathnasium three years ago. Kevin cannot envision a place that inspires growth better than Mathnasium. It is his belief that every person is at their very best when they are safe to innovate, make mistakes, and grow into a position of understanding. One of Kevin's favorite qualities about Mathnasium is how we engage with our students and instructors by welcoming them into an environment where they learn and grow without the pressures of having to know everything at every turn. The art of mathematics is one of growth and development that Kevin is always excited to be part of.
