Lisa H, Instructor

Hi, I’m Lisa. The reason why I chose to work at Mathnasium is because I love math and want to help kids to see math is very useful and fun. I used to struggled in math when I was in grade 7, but there was a teacher that helped change my attitude and I’ve been enjoying math ever since. I firmly believe everyone can enjoy math if they find a way of learning that is suitable for them. Besides teaching, I enjoy doing volunteer work that helps people live a meaningful and happy life.
