Sachin Gore, Center Director & Owner
Welcome, I'm Sachin! I love teaching kids math because I feel math is such an important life skill and I know that many students find math to be frustrating and confusing. Using math to solve engineering and business problems was key to success in my own career. While math came relatively easy to me, our son struggled to "get" math and I struggled to teach it to him in a way that made sense until we discovered Mathnasium!
I went to Penn State University (Go Nittany Lions!) where I majored in Mechanical Engineering. After completing my B.S. and M.S. degrees, I went on to work at Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, MI and Andersen Windows in Bayport, MN. While at Andersen, I completed my MBA online at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
In my professional career, I am proud to be the inventor of several new products that received patents. In addition to living and working in the St. Croix Valley with my wife and son, I enjoy volunteering for Junior Achievement (JA) and the St. Croix Valley Athletic Association (SCVAA).
McKenzie Budrow, Math Coach
Hi! I’m McKenzie and I’m from Roberts, Wisconsin!
I am a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls and I am studying mathematics. I have always been passionate about math, so working at Mathnasium has been perfect.
In my free time, I love to shop, drink Starbucks, and spend time with my friends and family. I can’t wait to help your student succeed in math!
Dan Geister, Math Coach
Hi! I’m Dan and I am from River Falls, Wisconsin. I have been working in teaching since 2005. I currently work at Rutherford Elementary School in Stillwater as a math intervention specialist. I started volunteering for Mathnasium of Stillwater in November of 2015.
Outside of teaching I have an abundance of interests. I am involved with the Pierce County Historical Association and have a major interest in local history. This passion has led me to write two local history books. I also love Star Wars, consider myself an 80’s Music Enthusiast and Collector and I’m always on the hunt for old albums.
Celeste Nelson, Math Coach
Hello, my name is Celeste Nelson and I live in Hudson. Outside of Mathnasium, I’m the Math Interventionist for the Hudson Middle School.
I grew up not far from Hudson in Clayton, WI. After high school, I attended Mount Senario College in Ladysmith, WI where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Math/Secondary Education and minor in Computer Science. Later on, I earned my Masters in Education from St. Mary’s University in Winona, MN.
My son, Max, is a freshman in college and plays lacrosse. I’ve enjoyed traveling with him around the country and Canada to watch him play and coach. We also have a lovable yellow lab named Duke.
I love watching lacrosse, traveling, reading, creating in Shutterfly, and watching movies. My favorite sports teams are the Georgia Swarm, Hastings Walleye, and Green Bay Packers.
Ethan Seath, Math Coach
Hi! I'm Ethan!
I'm a senior at Hudson High School. At school, I’m a teacher assistant for our calculus-based AP Physics class and enjoy helping other students learn to the best of their ability. I have always loved math and science classes and I hope to make them more understandable for new learners at Mathnasium.
In school, I am part of the concert band, jazz band, and captain of the speech team. Along with those extracurricular activities I participate in our National Honors Society, Destination Imagination, and volunteer at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
Noah Lundeen, Math Coach
Hi! I am Noah!
I live in Hudson where I go to Hudson High School and have taken math classes through AP Calculus. I am part of the class of 2020!
I chose to work at Mathnasium because I was once a student here and struggled in my Calculus class. The Mathnasium instructors did a phenomenal job of helping me through my struggles in math, so I would like the opportunity to help others as well.
In my free time, I enjoy running and am on the track and cross country teams. I also enjoy the outdoors and watching movies with friends.
