Larry Martinek, Chief Instructional Officer
Larry has spent his entire career finding a better way to teach math. From inner-city to public schools to acclaimed magnet schools to leading private and parochial schools, Larry has served as a classroom teacher and as an educational consultant. He has designed curriculum, teaching strategies, and teaching materials to help students and teachers learn math more effectively. He has trained teachers in the art and science of boosting students’ ability to “do” math, thereby increasing students’ math scores and feeling of self-worth. Larry is the developer of Mathnasium’s educational program, one of the most comprehensive and innovative curriculums ever produced for teaching math.
While Larry is not an instructor at our Center, he is a valuable asset we can call on to ask about specific students' scenarios for guidance and advice. This has helped to make visits more productive and enjoyable for many of our students.
Alan Saxena, Center Owner
Inspiring the next generation of minds is the most important undertaking of all.
Alan is the owner of Mathnasium of Trumbull, as well as another center in Avon, CT and Manchester, New Hampshire. When Alan first heard of Mathnasium so long ago, he never could have dreamed of how many lives he would change for the better. Now, almost 5 years after deciding to start a center of his own, he wouldn't change a second of it! With all of the hustle and bustle of running 3 centers, Alan is generally a motion blur, always moving and never sitting still. He is always happy to make time for our parents, however, and loves to chat about how their students are doing wherever life takes them!
