Teachers

The majority of our teachers come from STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) backgrounds, and most are former mathletes who participated in national and international math contests during middle school and/or high school.

All of our teachers have at least an undergraduate, if not a Master or PhD degree in the areas of math, science, or engineering.

 Many have considerable experience in teaching problem solving and competition math. Every teacher is trained in our teaching method and regularly monitored to ensure the integrity of our curriculum delivery.

 One common feature that all of our teachers share is their passion for teaching, the fulfillment in seeing the joy in students’ faces when a solution is discovered for difficult problems.
