Managing Partner & Director of Education
Vinny Madera grew up in Brentwood, New York and moved to West Haven to finish high school. He attended the University of Connecticut and received a BA in Mathematics and Statistics. While at UConn, Vinny tutored Statistics as an undergrad — a job normally reserved for graduate students. From UConn, Vinny went on to receive his MSc in Mathematics from Fairfield University, graduating with a near perfect GPA. He was the recipient of the coveted Robert Bulger awards for passion and excellence in Mathematics and even guest lectured one of the courses he was taking!
Vinny is the founder of Varsity Mathletes (www.varsitymathletes.com), a company whose aim is to put the "A" back in math. In addition, he is an educational consultant and the National Math Content director for GenZ Test Prep (www.genzonline.com) , a revolutionary academic and test prep company. Vinny has a book on mental math (See you later, Calculator!) awaiting publication, which he specifically designed with the Connecticut Speed School in mind. To date, his greatest mathematical achievement was finding how to work more than 168 hours in a week... In his free time, he dotes on his wonderful daughter and lovely family.
