Ed Boley

Assistant Center Director
Ed holds a BS in Math and a BS in Computer Science from Wichita State University and has his MBA from Newman University. Besides being an instructor at Mathnasium, Ed also works as a para-educator in the Maize School district. Favorite Number: "11" Was his jersey number in grade school basketball. You're a "10" and number "1". What can be better? Favorite Math Joke: Why is the equal sign(=)so humble? Because he doesn’t claim to be greater than (>) or less than(<) anyone else! Fun Fact: Ed loves to be on stage. He started at age 4 doing tap and singing. He has been in several musicals in community theatres, and been a choir director for several groups. Ed currently directs a choir at church. I love Mathnasium because: It helps students to create a solid base of the beautiful language of math that will help them throughout their life. To be a part of something that helps to make math more positive is an exciting opportunity.

Steve Gonzales

Steve earned his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Mexico. After 39 years he retired from the Aerospace industry. He was Scoutmaster for St. Francis of Assisi church and loves to camp and hike. Favorite Number: Infinity - it goes on forever. Favorite Math Joke: 3 out of 2 people have trouble with fractions! Fun Fact: Star Trek fan and occasionally wears Spock ears. I love Mathnasium because: Guiding and coaching a student through a challenging math concept and watching them succeed builds their confidence in math and in themselves. Mathnasium instruction methods alleviate the "I'm not good at math" feeling. And...it's fun!

Bernarr Wharton

Bernarr has a BS in Math and MS in Education. He has tutored math for 46 years. Favorite Number: "13" It's his daughter’s number.

She is majoring in Health Science and minoring in Mathematics, with a goal of attending Medical School in the future Favorite Number: "12” It’s her birthday date.

I love Mathnasium because: I love watching the students’ confidence grow.

Mia Krause

Mia is a senior at Eisenhower High School. She is involved in club swimming, Business Professionals of America, and National Honor Society. She plans to major in mathematics in college. Favorite Number: “12” Favorite Math Joke: Why can’t a nose be 12 inches long? Because then it would be a foot. Fun Fact: She’s climbed the Great Wall of China. I love Mathnasium because: many students end up learning how much fun math can really be.

His favorite number is "2.718281" because it's Euler's Number, and it’s significant in his favorite game. His favorite math joke is "Why did Seven Eight Nine? Because you're supposed to eat 3 squared meals a day!" A fun fact is that Sam enjoys art. Sam loves Mathnasium because he enjoys helping people become better at things they struggle with, especially math.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
