  Scott Penkova, Regional Director

Scott has worked with Mathnasium, first as a Center Director in Fort Mitchell and now as the Regional Director of four locations, Blue Ash, Mason, West Chester and Fort Mitchell, KY.  He came to Mathnasium after working for years in different school settings, from public to private, and brick and mortar to online!  He uses the many different experiences to help students achieve high levels of understanding in mathematics.  He works closely with all of his Centers' staffs to make sure that they are giving the same emphasis on understanding and passion towards what we do.  He still works on instructing students in our one-on-one model but also enjoys being able to cultivate each instructor into the best teacher they can be.  When he isn't working you will find him spending time with his wife and two children.  He also enjoys being outside and reading books.

"I love Mathnasium because: I know the power of our program and how it can help students succeed!  We have create a customized plan for them to acheive greatness and this is exactly what I did in my classroom when I was teaching."

Favorite math joke: Why was the student confused when they went from English class to Math class?  Because they were taught that a double negative in English is bad, but in Math it is a positive!
