Arie Ogranovich is a current senior at Glenbrook North High School.
He has been involved in math competitions since 6th grade, attending and leading teams at national
competitions including the Princeton University Mathematics Competition and the Harvard-MIT
Mathematics Tournament. During high school, he has consistently placed among the top 15 scorers
for his grade at the Illinois Math Team State Championship, and attended multiple math camps,
including the Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS). He hopes to share a love
for math and a sense of exploration with younger students,
and cultivate strength in the North Shore math community starting from an early age.
Sean Randunne is a Senior at the William Fremd High School. He has attended Pleasant Hill Elementary School and Plum Grove Junior High School. As a child, he excelled at mathematics which led him to qualify for the Illinois State Mathcounts competition and to place 15th overall in 2016. As a captain of the Fremd math team, he participated in the ICTM state math competition for Geometry and placed third. He has also volunteered in the peer tutoring center by helping peers learn math. He has taught a competitive math class at the Xilin Chinese School designed to prepare middle school students for AMC 10 and AMC 12. He attended an Awesome Math camp at Cornell University in which he advanced his knowledge in math in the summer of 2018. He also used to work at the Kumon Learning Center where he teaches reading and math. As an instructor at MWMC, his intention is to spread the love and joy of mathematics to all of the young mathematicians in the Northwest Suburban area. He is interested in the applications of mathematics in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Daria recently graduated from Roycemore School in Evanston, IL.
With her grandma being a math teacher and her entire family being very science/math inclined,
Daria began her STEM education early on and mostly at home. She learned to love math through fun puzzles and games,
so her impression of how beautiful math could be did not change through years of computations in math classes in school.
Daria competed in competitions such as Math Kangaroo and AMC8 during her elementary and middle school years and
learned to love the fun math olympiad problems that had you thinking about how to solve them for days on end.
When she was in high school, she realized that not too many people around her enjoy math as much as she does,
so Daria began investigating why that is. This led to her founding a math club for lower and middle schoolers
at Roycemore to try and excite the new generation to enjoy math and learn to problem solve and think.
This has become a huge passion for Daria and she hopes to continue finding and testing out methods and strategies that
make kids like math.
Britney recently graduated from Glenbrook North after having grown up in Northbrook, attending St. Norbert School, Wescott Elementary School and Maple Middle School.
Having been interested in math and science from a young age, she found that school curriculums were sorely lacking in those areas, focusing too much on rote memorization
and standardized test preparation rather than understanding concepts and learning how to think critically. This led her into competition math in middle school, eventually
going on to earn the distinction of qualifying for the American Invitational Math Exam, competing for the Chicago All Star Math Team, and leading GBN’s math team to three
consecutive state wins. Britney is extremely excited to work with the Northbrook community and beyond to enrich the mathematical and logical education of students everywhere.
Hey everyone! I’m Anshul, and I’m in my senior year at Glenbrook South High School.
I’ve placed 1st at regionals for 2 years in Math Team, and I’ve earned perfect scores
on the math sections of ACT/SAT. I hope to pursue training in UAV and remote sensing
operations alongside an engineering degree. I look forward to working with you!
Catherine is a graduated senior from Glenbrook North High School and will
be attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall to study Computer Science
and Electrical Engineering. She has been on her school’s math team throughout middle school
and high school, and has participated in many worldwide math contests such as the Harvard-MIT
Math Tournament and the Princeton University Mathematics Competition. She was the co-president
of the Glenbrook North Math Team and received recognition multiple times at the state level.
She hopes to introduce children to competition math at an earlier age and spread the
love of math in her community.
