        Joe Ritsma, Centre Director 

Joe is the Centre Director at Mathnasium of Waterloo. Prior to opening a Mathnasium centre of his own, Joe worked as an instructor in another Mathnasium location in Ontario. It was during this time that he realized how effective the Mathnasium teaching methods were and how he wanted to share them with even more people. Before his time with Mathnasium began, Joe worked as a Civil Engineer designing barns and other rural structures. He has a degree in Civil Engineering which was acquired from McMaster University in 2012.

Joe is enthusiastic about helping every child in the Waterloo community to truly understand math by teaching it in the way that makes sense to them. Joe began teaching math in high school when he was a tutor as a part time job. Since then, he has taught and tutored children of all ages, teaching math to students in a clear and straightforward manner. He is committed to bringing the Mathnasium Method to the children of Waterloo and act as a resource to the community.
