Jacob Lerner, Instructor
My name is Jacob Lerner, I am a university of Calgary student pursuing a dual degree in both philosophy and music. Math has always been my favourite subject in school, but I understand that it can be a struggle for many students who feel like they haven't been able to develop a solid foundation before moving on to more difficult concepts. I have been teaching students in math and music for 5+ years, and love to see them grow and begin to nurture a love for math. I joined Mathnasium so I could help students discover their love for math by starting at the basics and moving forward.
In my free time I like to play music around Calgary, as well as reading and writing philosophy.
Olga Skorinskaya, Instructor
Hello, my name is Olga :) I have enjoyed math since a young age, and I have been working with kids for over 5 years. It always brings a smile to my face when they finally master a math concept, or get that one tricky question right. It is an honour to work at Mathnasium and see all the students grow and improve. I graduated high school with honours, but my favourite part was being the class historian speaker! In the future I hope to go into the science/medical field and continue working with kids, and helping people.
My favourite thing to do in my free time is draw, sketch, or paint, I love art almost as much as I love math. I also enjoy reading and watching movies with my cat Mars.
