It is so fascinating how the new generating is being taught with the new methods involved.

She loves working with the kids in the center and seeing their "light-bulb" moment when learning and solving problems. Aileen loves showing her creative side of the arts, such as drawing, calligraphy, and Polynesian dancing. On a relaxing day outside of Mathnasium, Aileen loves to watch horror movies, rock climb, dance and bake desserts, especially macarons. So be sure to ask her some tips for DIY baking!

Fun fact: Ms. Selena is afraid of butterflies because they are too delicate.
