Board Of Directors

Cathy Burton,



Cathy is a mother and grandmother who strongly believes that today’s child needs to be provided any and all available tools to be successful.  This includes a strong family base for love, support and guidance.  This also includes an education which provides them the fundamental skills needed to enter the workforce and pursue higher education.  It is a fact that our children are struggling with the basic concepts of reading, writing and arithmetic.  Math especially has become a challenge that needs to be hurdled.  With this goal in mind, Math Way to Excellence was founded to make math a fun, stimulating, and accessible.
