CenterDirectorRohita Shah, Center Director/Owner

Hello! I'm Rohita Shah the Center Director at Mathnasium of Whitefish Bay. Prior to opening this center, I enjoyed working as a project associate for the American Orthopaedic Association. I have a Master’s degree in Bioengineering from University of Illinois. With a background in Orthopaedic Research, I managed a Gait Analysis Laboratory at Rush University Medical Center for several years before deciding to stay home to raise my children. With my own children, I experienced both the frustrations of math and the rewards of overcoming the challenges through the Mathnasium method. Therefore, I'm passionate about helping every child truly understand math by teaching it in the way that makes sense to them. More importantly, I'm committed to bringing the Mathnasium Method to the children in the community.

Hey there, I'm Mario one of the lead instructors here at Mathnasium of Whitefish Bay. I am also a 5th year student at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, perusing degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics. I have always loved math and working with children, working at Mathnasium has allowed me to share my love of mathematics with the students, to inspire them and help extend their knowledge. I cherish every moment with the students and hope to reveal to them how math can be interesting, useful, and fun!


Britani, Lead Instructor

Hi there, my name is Britani! I am a math instructor at the Mathnasium in Whitefish Bay. Ever since I was young, I enjoyed solving problems and working with numbers which led to me receiving my Bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse.  I am currently pursing my Master’s degree in architecture at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. Along with math, I have a large passion for art and design (I actually minored in art in my undergraduate studies!) What I love most about working at Mathnasium is getting to work with students and seeing the happiness that arises when they understand a concept they were previously struggling with, it brings a smile to both of our faces. I can’t wait to share the same experience with your child!

Hello!  My name is Nick and I'm an instructor at Mathnasium of Whitefish Bay.  I have bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and History from St. Olaf College, as well as a Master's in Systems Engineering from Cornell University.  Currently, I am pursuing another Master's in Public History at UW-Milwaukee and I hope to eventual work in Museum operations or some other History-related profession.  Throughout my education, I've been struck by how much you can do with even a little knowledge of math, and one thing I've always loved about learning (and teaching!) it is discovering new ways of applying math in the world around us.  Having previously worked as an independent tutor since high school, I love working with kids and especially love sharing that "aha" moment when they figure something out for the first time.  I look forward to taking part in many more "aha" moments at Mathnasium.
