A Little Bit More About Us

Cornelius Barnes

Math Made Simple, Etc. has been committed to developing young minds since 1997. Founded by Cornelius Barnes, a credentialed mathematics consultant with his proven educational techniques, he has helped students become the cornerstones in the field of mathematics for over a decade.

Mr. Barnes believed that although most teachers did an admirable job in the classroom, a large percentage of our students still continue not to do well in traditional school settings.

The assembly line natures of most schools don’t work well for 21st century students. He believes that students need to interact, collaborate and mentor with other classmates to help foster greater learning in the classroom. Mr. Barnes believed that at Math Made Simple, Etc. we can identify a students’ strengths and natural ability and build a solid math foundation for all.
