Montgomery Business Journal Monica Virgil

Monica Virgil has a passion for math (and the master’s degree to prove it), and through her business, Mathnasium of East Montgomery, she’s using her knowledge and enthusiasm to help math make sense to area students.

What do you love about math? Math is not only a subject, but it is a tool that offers unlimited academic and career opportunities. I love that my enthusiasm for math is contagious. I believe that it helps me fulfill my responsibility and to leave a legacy.

How did you get interested opening a Mathnasium? I was on track to becoming a college math professor. When I learned about Mathnasium, I decided to use my skills as a public school math and science teacher in the private sector. Armed with a bold vision and a tremendous passion for math education, I followed my dream to combine education and leadership. As a result, I opened Montgomery’s first Mathnasium. Mathnasium is
a nationwide franchise of more than 800 learning centers that helps students better understand math through personalized learning programs.

What are the primary services that Mathnasium offers? Math tutoring and enrichment for grades K-12.

What makes Mathnasium different from other tutoring services or learning centers? Mathnasium specializes in math only. We put a lot of emphasis in hiring and training math experts that help students catch up, keep up or get ahead in math.

Recent milestones? Mathnasium of East Montgomery has served close to 1,000 students in all levels of math, even college, in the past four and half years.

What’s your favorite thing about your job? I love when a student comes to us disliking math and ends up loving it because of us.

What’s on the horizon for Mathnasium? Mathnasium is looking to move to a new larger location to give us the ability to serve a larger customer base.

BESIDES JUST NUMBERS:
I enjoy serving the community through motivational speaking, volunteering for different non-profit organizations, and I enjoy the performing arts. One of the highlights of my career was being selected as a speaker at Western Governors University’s 2013 winter commencement ceremony.
