Dr. Titu Andreescu, Lead Instructor, Advanced Problem Solvers:
Dr. Titu Andreescu is an associate professor of mathematics in the Science and Mathematics Education department at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). Much of his career has been devoted to competition math, an efficient medium for teaching creative problem-solving for a wide-range of math topics. With over 30 years of experience teaching, coaching, and mentoring the brightest mathematical minds of our age at all levels, including being the primary coach for the International Mathematics Olympiad, Dr. Andreescu sought to bring this expertise to the Dallas area in the form of AwesomeMath Academy.

I received my bachelors degree in mathematics from California State University at Long Beach in 2008 and my doctorate degree from the University of Illinois, specializing in number theory, in 2015. In 2004-2008, I was an assistant coach for the Long Beach Math circle and Southern California ARML (the A team usually finishes in the top 8 in the nation). During my time at the University of Illinois, I served on the Undergraduate Math competition committee, which helps train for the Putnam contest and other competitions. Over the past three years, I’ve been working for AwesomeMath and have enjoyed teaching young students how to succeed in mathematics competitions.

Patrick McClintock, Lead Instructor, Novice & Beginner Problem Solvers:
I was born and raised in the Dallas area, was my high school’s salutatorian, and am currently finishing my degree at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in Mathematics Education. I was the captain of UTD’s fencing club for two years and am an avid swing dancer. As a Teaching Assistant for the AwesomeMath Summer Program, I have had the opportunity to work with world-renowned mathematicians and learn best practices for introducing students to the joys of problem-solving. I always loved math, but until I met Dr. Andreescu I never knew this world of competition math and truly interesting problem-solving existed. I love this world and I love having the opportunity to introduce kids to new ways of looking at math – it is fulfilling to guide curious minds to solve challenging problems.
Branislav Kisačanin, Physics Problem Solving Instructor:
Dr. Branislav Kisacanin has been teaching our Physics Problem Solving classes for a few years now, successfully preparing students for F=ma competitions. Dr.Branislav participated in physics competitions when he was in high school and since then has become a renowned computer scientist and educator of mathematically gifted kids. His main area of work is artificial intelligence and its applications to autonomous driving and computer vision. Dr.Branislav published 6 books on computer science and mathematics.
