About RSM-Brookline:

RSM-Brookline, one of the newest branches of the Russian School of Mathematics in Massachusetts, opened its doors in November, 2013. The new RSM school, a campus of RSM-Newton, opened in response to a high demand for after-school math enrichment from Brookline and the surrounding communities of Arlington, Allston/Brighton, Belmont, Cambridge, Somerville, Watertown, Jamaica Plain, Newton, and West Roxbury.

As a branch of the award-winning Russian School of Mathematics, our mission is to help our K-12 students build a solid math foundation and develop the critical thinking skills that will serve them throughout their lives. We achieve this through a combination of great curriculum and exceptional teaching.

About the Dean of Students

Nargiz Mamedova, Dean of Students

Nargiz Mamedova

Education: M.S. in Mathematics, Baku State University, Azerbaijan

Nargiz Mamedova emigrated to the U.S. in 1999, and settled in Brookline with her family while her husband was getting his MBA at MIT's Sloan School.  Having already enjoyed a successful career in corporate finance for a global oil and gas corporation, she has a deep understanding of how useful math is in the real world and how a solid foundation in mathematics and critical thinking can prepare individuals to be excellent problem-solvers in whatever career they may choose.  Becoming an instructor at RSM-Newton in 2012 fulfilled her lifelong dream of imparting the beauty of mathematics to young children, where she felt it would have the strongest impact.  In addition to her love of mathematics, Nargiz brings to her role as principal of RSM-Brookline the experience of being a mother of two and an RSM parent.
