Bobby Tarnowski

Owner
It thrills me to see a young person's face light up when it finally hits them how math works and is useful in the things they're passionate about. I believe that a solid understanding of mathematics is foundational in our ability to make good life choices, equipping us to live lives with greater independence and accomplishment of our goals. I graduated from St. John's University with a B.A. in Mathematics and continued with a Master's Program in Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the University of St. Thomas. Math has been indispensible throughout my career in engineering and management, and is also quite useful in my business and family life.

He enjoys finding tricks/short cuts in math that makes the problems simpler or more intuitive. He was the captain of his high school math team and they made it to state 2 times. When not at Mathnasium you will find Bryce playing video games, reading, anime, or doing math. A little known fact about Bryce is that in high school he played video games professionally.
