Priya is our centre director at Mathnasium of Twickenham. She has always loved maths and went on to study this at A Level. She then went to the University of Westminster to study Computer Science and received a bachelor’s degree in this. After this, Priya worked by Westminster Abbey for a fintech company and was a customer service manager for five years before going back into education to complete a master’s degree in project management. By this time covid had struck and Priya wanted to do more to help, so she took up a part-time job as a teaching assistant and helped with all the key worker’s children. She made some wonderful memories with her children at school, and they too were very fond of her. One of her fondest memories was World Book Day where she dressed as Cruella De Vil – everyone loved the outfit but many of her students said she picked the wrong character because she was too nice to be a villain! Priya had such a rewarding time doing this and seeing the children grow that she continued this for the next few years. Then, she found Mathnasium, and she loved who and what they were, so she decided to start her new chapter as our centre director. She is passionate about what she does and is excited to see her Mathnasium journey continue!
Aside from her education and career, Priya is a baker. In her spare time, she is always making sweet treats, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, birthday cakes, and even wedding cakes! She has made lots of different designs and flavours, but her best seller (and taster) is her coffee and walnut cake. Although Priya loves her baking, she admitted that she would rather be under the stress of a Maths exam than the stress of baking a wedding cake!

Currently in her gap year, Chelsea is a passionate instructor, eager to pass her love for maths onto our students! Having achieved A Levels in Maths and Further Maths, she has been able to share her understanding of applied and pure mathematics in a fun and stress-free way for the children to learn, without fear of judgement. She finds it most important that the children feel they’re in an environment where they are free to make mistakes, and are shown patience in correcting them, as it is this skill that will not only make the students love maths, but love learning. She will soon be a physics student at the university of Southampton, but until then, she occupies her time with the stage; singing, dancing and acting, spreading joy wherever she can!
