CenterDirectorEd Austin, Owner 

Ed is the Owner of Mathnasium of Saratoga Springs. Ed is an electrical engineer by degree and has worked as an Instrument/Electrical Engineer for about 20 years and technical sales for another 9 years.  He has a BS in Electrical Engineering from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT.  Going through the electrical engineering degree program at MSU, entry level as well as advanced math classes were a part of the required curriculum.  Having always taken math classes throughout his education, he understands the importance of developing math skills to assist in succeeding, not only in his career but in life as well.  Too often, young students put aside chasing their real dreams for a rewarding career because they "can't get through the math."  Ed sees this as a problem that can easily be fixed.  His passion for math and his desire to help make a difference in the lives of young minds has led Ed to Mathnasium.  He sees the Mathnasium Method as an awesome way to bring math to life to the children in the local community.

Favorite Number:  12. Because it is considered a perfect number and symbolized completeness.

Favorite Math Joke:  What do you call a number that can't keep still?  A roamin' numeral.

I love Mathnasium because:  It is truly a "one-of-kind" approach to effectively teaching math in ways that stay with you for life!  The way we teach math is something much bigger than memorization - it becomes a part of who you are.

Tammy has a unique experience dealing with children and adults.  She comes from a background as a social worker for the University of Utah Mental Health Crisis Team.  She has a love of math and feels that a strong background in math can bring confidence to the life of a child.  The result; success in the educational system leading to a successful career!  Tammy likes to hike and crochet in her spare time.

Quinn Gerber, Instructor

Quinn is a college student working to become a Software Engineer.  I've taught children math for two years and taught dance for even longer.  She enjoys math and loves it when she figures out a problem.

 

 

Favorite Number:  31.  Because it's the transposition of the number 13, an unlucky number.  Fun Fact:  When the position of two or more digits are switched and the difference is divisible by 9 resulting in a whole number, then you have a transposition error (31-13 = 18 which is divisible by 9 and equals exactly 2).

Favorite Math Joke:  What did Al Gore play on his guitar?  An algorithm!

I love Mathnasium because:  The children are so kind and happy when they figure out a problem.  I love being able to help them to enjoy math as much as I do.

Favorite Number:  15!  Ever since I learned how to count, I've just loved numbers that are multiples of 5.  They're so satisfying to at and you always know when they are divisble by 5 because they end in 0 or 5. 

Favorite Math Joke: We know that 6 is afraid of 7 because 7,8,9, but why did 7 eat 9?  Because you're supposed to eat 3 "squared" meals a day! 

In five years, I will be: 

I love Mathnasium because:  Kids are so incredibly fun to work with!  The way their brains work is so fascinating and it's amazing how quickly they learn subjects like math when taught in a way that makes sense to them.  Plus, they'll never not have a fun story or interesting fact to share with you!
