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.

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 the outdoors, experimenting with plant-based recipes, and spending time with friends, family, and animals (especially dogs!)
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 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.
