  • Nate Maus
    Nate Maus Director of Training

    I’m Nate Maus, the Director of Training for LearningRx of Shoreview along with our locations in Eden Prairie and Maple Grove. I studied Psychology at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and am a Board Certified Cognitive Specialist. I was initially drawn to LearningRx in 2008 as a way to apply the academic knowledge I received from my studies in cognitive psychology to help individuals directly. In the past, I took great joy in working with clients personally as a cognitive trainer and now focus my time as the Director of Training on finding and training amazing and highly skilled individuals to work as cognitive trainers. I love seeing the amazing growth our trainers deliver daily. I have a passion for helping people and oversee all our programs to ensure every student receives the best cognitive training possible.

    I studied Psychology at Augsburg University and am working towards becoming a Child Psychologist. While I am originally from Minnesota, my family is Ukrainian so I grew up speaking Russian. In the past I taught Russian to kids at the Russian Educational Center. My hobbies include listening to music, reading science articles, and watching crime shows.
