Whizz Education, creator of Math-Whizz, the award-winning online math tutor for elementary and middle school children, has expanded with two new impressive hires.
Amy Walser is Whizz Education’s new Chief Operating Officer. She was hired to create and develop the backbone of Whizz Education’s operations, to reinvigorate technological innovation and to develop operational systems to sell and scale Whizz Education’s products globally. Walser joins Whizz Education from Nickelodeon. While there, she oversaw the development and implementation of the company’s end-to-end Global Consumer Product processes and systems.
“I’ve always loved and excelled in math,” said Walser. “My greatest motivation is to enable children around the world to feel that same confidence and inspiration. The big idea behind Math-Whizz is that it offers scalable and affordable educational development that is fun. By focusing on localization and personalization, our ability to engage and empower children around the world is limitless.”
Walser graduated with Honors from California State University at Northridge with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. She received her Masters of Business Administration with a specialization in Global Business Change Management from the Stern School of Business at New York University.
Chris Reinke joins Whizz Education as the lead designer for the company’s student experience. From 2002-2007, he worked at HIT Entertainment, creators of Thomas the Train, Bob the Builder and Barney. Reinke will focus on simplifying Math-Whizz to enhance the experience of students. He will also create new content to increase student engagement.
“Whizz Education is very successful at taking a potentially dry subject such as math and making it fun and exciting through humor and a great understanding of its audience,” said Reinke. “This is no small feat, and shows tremendous potential for other subjects in the future.”
Reinke studied English and French Law at the University of Westminster. After he received his LLB, he secured a Master’s Degree in Multimedia at the University of Westminster.
