Owner/Center Director





Joanne Meyer, Owner/Center Director

Hi, I'm Joanne Meyer, Owner and Center Director of Mathnasium of Sudbury. I have a Ph.D. in Human Genetics with a focus on the mathematical aspects of genetics. For several years I was on the faculty at the Medical College of Virginia, doing research and teaching a variety of genetics and statistics courses to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. In 1996, I moved to Boston's Metro West area to work in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, applying genetics to basic research and clinical development. Since retiring early from pharma, I have been teaching and tutoring biology and statistics at Framingham State University and pursuing my long term passion for mathematics. I am thrilled to be opening Mathnasium of Sudbury where we strive to make math make sense for students.






Joe Mulvey, Instructor

Joe holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Framingham State University. While in school, he worked with the Project Summer Adventure camp for children ages 6-12. Joe currently works in the Hopkinton Public School system and has experience teaching mathematics to students at a variety of levels. He enjoys playing hockey, being outdoors, and has a particular interest in fishing. He is very passionate about teaching mathematics in a way that makes sense to students so they can build a concrete understanding of the concepts that they will be using for the rest of their lives


Ian Nielsen, Instructor

Hi! I'm Ian Nielsen.  I am currently a graduate student at Umass Lowell studying computer Science.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Framingham State University in 2016.  My decision to study Computer Science was in part due to my love of mathematics and my belief that math can teach us a lot about how our world works.  My goal at Mathnasium is to hopefully show your child that mathematics is all around us and can teach us a lot about how our society works.  I hope that I can convince them that for those reasons math is fun



Liz Newman, Instructor

Hi!  My name is Liz Newman, and I am currently a Ph.D student at Tufts studying computational and applied mathematics.  My research is in numerical linear algebra, specifically as it relates to image processing.  Currently, I am working on an awesome project involving neural networks, a type of algorithm through which a computer learns to do a task.  As an undergraduate at Haverford College, I was a mathematics and statistics major and a psychology minor.  My senior thesis broadly focused on explaining the geometric interpretation of reflections using abstract algebra.  At Haverford, I played varsity soccer and softball, tutored students in a variety of math subjects, and was involved with transitioning freshmen into college.  I am so excited to be part of the Mathnasium team and to help students build an understanding and a love for mathematics! 



Shelly Strileckis, Instructor

Hi, I'm Shelly Strileckis, an instructor at Mathnasium of Sudbury and a lover of math.  I have a BA in math with a concentration in computer science and studio art from Boston College and a MS in computer information systems engineering from Boston University.  For eighteen years I worked for a large-scale systems integration consulting firm, where I was involved in everything from computer programming to business architecture to project management.  I later worked in professional development after my two daughters were born, focusing on corporate training and running company functions.  As a resident of Sudbury, I am an active volunteer for the Sudbury Public School System and often helped with math instruction at the elementary schools.  I also enjoy restoring antique homes, biking, traveling (I've been to every continent except South America!), and art.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Mathnasium team, where I can use my strong organizational skills to help students discover an understanding and love of mathematics!

Grace Saville, Instructor

Hi! I'm Grace Saville and am currently a junior at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School and I plan to pursue math in college. Outside of school, I enjoy to play tennis, row and volunteer at a local hospital. I hope to show kids that math has so real-life applications as well as the fact that it can be fun!



Eric Davis, Instructor

Eric graduated from Worcester State in December 2017 with a B.S. in Mathematics.  In the fall he plans to attend graduate school to earn his Ph.D.   In his free time, he likes to play soccer, paint, and go cross-country skiing.

Abacus, The Math Dog

Woof!  I'm Abacus the math dog at Mathnasium of Sudbury.  I am a corgi mix named after an ancient calculating tool, so you could say math is part of my identity!  I haven't been to the Center lately since it has gotten a bit crowded for a dog, but Joanne quizzes me every night on challenging math problems.
