 Ken and Susan Kim, Owner/Centre Directors

 Ken Kim is the owner and the Centre Director at Mathnasium of Ancaster. Prior to   opening Mathnasium, Ken owned and operated various successful businesses. He   studied Economics at the University of Toronto. Ken has always thought of Math as an   enjoyment and continued his math studies into university. He has a passion for   teaching   math and aspires to share that passion. Working with kids has always been   a strength for   Ken, as he has coached multiple softball and soccer teams.  He has   two loving children   who also have a love for math and can be seen at Mathnasium!

 

 Before opening this Mathnasium, Susan has owned and operated businesses with   Ken for over 18 years.  She studied Life Sciences at the University of Toronto.  Susan   always enjoyed math at school and feels that the children should also have a similar mind set towards math   and  its importance in everyday life.  She hopes to communicate this significance teaching through the   Mathnasium Method.  She loves to work with children and enjoys teaching kids of various ages and levels, so it   just seemed natural to take the next step and open a Mathnasium.  She currently resides in Ancaster with Ken   and their two children.  

 

 

Larry Martinek, Creator of the Mathnasium Method

Larry has spent his entire career finding a better way to teach math. From inner city 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 teaching materials to help students and teachers 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 curriculas 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 specific students' scenarios for guidance and advice.
