Boralda Ndreu, Center Director
My name is Boralda Ndreu and I have over ten years of experience in business and education. I hold a bachelor degree in Finance, but most importantly I am a proud mom of two wonderful kids. Through the Mathnasium Method, I want to instill confidence, enthusiasm, passion, and excellence in mathematics for all of my students. Growing up, math has always been one of my favorite subjects and being able to share my love of math with others is a real joy. The best feeling in the world is to help a student understand a math topic and watch their face light up as they work out a problem. I am beyond excited to help families in our neighborhood and help their kids achieve the success we all know they’re capable of.
Dennis O'Hanlon, Instructor
Dennis O’Hanlon was a high school mathematics teacher for thirty-five years after graduating from Northern Arizona University with a Master’s Degree in Mathematics Education. Starting at Sinaloa Middle School and transferring to Royal High School the second year it was open.
The classes taught at Royal High School included classes from basic skills through pre-Calculus with emphasis on Geometry and Algebra 1. These classes teach students the basic tools used for many applications in future mathematics classes and applications. Being able to know why
a process works to solve a problem is as important to knowing how. Being able to think with numbers is an important skill taught in mathematics.
I used my knowledge of mathematics to become a manager of pricing for a defense company who provided high-speed computer printers for the fire control systems used for weapons used by the military of the United States. Being able to analyze the information using my mathematics skills became my job with this company.
I later went back to teaching mathematics at Camarillo High School specializing in Algebra 1 and Geometry. Algebra 2 and Trigonometry can be difficult classes for students unless they can take the “why” a procedure learned in earlier classes works to be able to apply it to how to solve the challenging problems of these more advanced classes.
Hannah Solomon, Instructor
My name is Hannah Solomon and I graduated in April 2018 from the University of Redlands with a B.S. in Mathematics. I plan to pursue my love for mathematics in a Ph.D. program in Pure Mathematics. I have experience tutoring calculus in a group setting for four years at my alma mater and have been working with children since high school. I am looking forward to giving back to the mathematics community and making a difference in your child's education. Maybe they will be inspired to be a mathematician like me!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, photography, baking, and hiking. My favorite number is e = 2.718... and my favorite shape is a torus, the surface of a donut. I am interested in studying knots as mathematical objects, and my favorite knot is the trefoil or clover-leaf knot.
