This Male Model Who Is Also a PhD-Earning Math Teacher Makes Us Want to Go Back to School

Cue Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher"! Math class would have been a lot more enticing with someone like Pietro Boselli giving Us the lowdown on things like theorems and derivatives and differential equations — but it probably would have been a lot harder to concentrate, too.

Boselli, 26, shot to viral Internet fame this week when a student at University College London, Arief Azli, Googled the hunk's name and discovered his second career as a male model. As reported by multiple news outlets, Azli then posted his discovery to Facebook, where it quickly picked up steam and earned Boselli a reputation as the "world's hottest math teacher."

According to the UK's Telegraph, the 26-year-old dreamboat hails from Negrar, Italy, and has a PhD in mechanical engineering from UCL. The Daily Mail reports that he worked as a teaching assistant and lecturer at the school until June 2014.

Have a good weekend ??

In his F.Tape profile, he says that he was discovered by none other than Giorgio Armani when he was 6 years old, and that he works out "2-3 times a day." Among his idols are "Newton, Oscar Wilde, The Rolling Stones, Noam Chomsky, George Carlin, Beppe Grillo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Reinhold Messner."

A quick look at his Instagram, meanwhile, reveals his ripped, shirtless bod, which is on display in multiple pics. Per one photo from last November, he won first place in the United Kingdom Male Fitness Model category at World Beauty Fitness & Fashion Inc.'s European event.

Think he's available for private tutoring?
