Our Team

Our specially trained math instructors will teach your child how to understand math in an individual setting; our unique approach enables us to explain concepts really well and lend a helping hand to every student. Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn! Read below to learn more about our talented team:

Larry Martinek, Chief Instructional Officer, Developer of Mathnasium Program

Larry has spent his entire career finding a better way to teach math. From the inner city to public schools, to acclaimed magnet schools, to leading private and parochial schools, Larry has served as both a classroom teacher and as an educational consultant. He has designed curriculum, teaching strategies, and educational materials designed to help students and educators 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 curricula 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 particular students' scenarios for guidance and advice. This has helped to make visits more productive and enjoyable for many of our students. 

 

 

McKenna, Center Director

McKenna has enjoyed tutoring mathematics for several years and is excited to join the Mathnasium team. She will be graduating from the University of Washington with degrees in Mathematics for Teacher Preparation and Sociology. Her goal is to empower and support students on their educational journeys as they become more confident and proficient in mathematics.

 

 

 

Nicole, Asst. Center Director

Nicole is a senior at Seattle Pacific University majoring in Mathematics with the intent to teach. She is from Palm Springs, CA and moved up to Seattle for school. When she is not at Mathnasium, Nicole can be found practicing with the Seattle Pacific rowing team, singing, or watching Disney movies. She is very passionate about education and loves learning new ways to help students succeed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 Kaici, Instructor

Hello! I'm Kaici (pronouns she/her/hers) and I'm 22 years young. In May, I graduated from the University of Miami where I studied Human & Social Development, Psychology, and Secondary Education (for math grades 6-12). A ~fun math~ fact about me is that I've lived in 3/4 corners of the continental states (1. I grew up in Maine, 2. I went to college in Florida, 3. I moved to Washington for a year of service). In August, I moved to Seattle to serve as an Americorps Member with City Year Seattle King County. This year, I am *virtually* supporting a high school math class at Chief Sealth International. I love exploring outdoors, experimenting plant-based recipes, and spending time with friends, family, and animals (especially dogs!) 

 

Caleb, Instructor

Coming soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hannah, Instructor

Hannah is a sophomore at Seattle Pacific University majoring in Elementary Education. She has spent most of her life in West Seattle, and loves its people, dogs, and natural beauty. She loves the curiosity and joy that kids bring and can’t wait to spend her future (and now!) working with them. Hannah enjoys running, writing, and attempting to bake bread in her free time. She is a traveller and spent the first three years of her life in Kenya. She is a big believer in education and the power it has to unite, and create, our future.

Hello! My name is Maria, I am 21 years old and a college student. I look forward to meeting all of you and getting a chance to help you learn! 

 

 

 

 

 

Mia, Instructor

Hello, my name is Mia. I am 23 years old, and I am from Vietnam. In this June, I graduated from Seattle University with bachelor's degree In Pure Mathematics. I had experiences with tutoring high school/college students before and I believe this would help me get along to work at Mathnasium. I love cooking and baking, especially Asian traditional dishes and share with my housemates.
