Bio: I’m Anthony Spear, a Materials Science & Engineering major. My academic interests include nanotechnology, personal aerotransportation, energy storage, and linguistics & rhetoric. Some of my favorite pastimes are scaring first-years with upper-division calculus, reading books that have nothing to do with my academic discipline, and going to lectures & taking notes. I started working at the Math Center to hone my mathematical and instructorial skills and to help UCM students achieve academic success.


Bio: Jacob is a Mechanical Engineering student with an interest in controls, aerodynamics, and propulsion. Jacob is involved with many club projects on campus and aspires to work at SpaceX or NASA. Jacob joined the math center to make math less arduous for students by getting them excited about math.


Bio: Kayla is a Computer Science and Engineering Major with an interest in computational and data sciences. While not attending school or working, she loves to laugh and talk to people, a complete extrovert. She has 5 cats and aspires to be the “cool crazy cat lady” in her old age. Kayla joined the Math Center to learn how to teach and help other students understand and utilize math in their courses and beyond.


Bio: I'm Daniel, a Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science double major. My favorite thing to do besides math is play videogames. Academically I am interested in video game engines and simulations in computer science, and automation of production lines and rocket engines in mechanical engineering. I hope to eventually work at SpaceX either designing future engines or automating production lines. I joined the math center because above all else, I love explaining how to solve math problems in creative ways.


Bio: I’m Karla Leon-Aguilar, a Physics major and Writing minor. During my spare time, I enjoy reading, talking with my mom and listening to podcasts. I joined the math center to enrich the students’ and my academic habits and to help them ease their way into their math courses.
