Amanda Barbian

Assistant Center Director
Amanda holds a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, where she also attended a teacher preparatory program for 5-12 Mathematics. She has 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring math, including 2 years teaching at a charter school high school in Brooklyn Park. Amanda’s favorite thing about math is that there are so many flexible ways to think about it and solve problems. When working with students she loves discovering new ways to communicate math in ways that make sense to the student, so that they can feel more confident! When not teaching, Amanda is usually working on a new craft, playing board games at home, or having fun with her lab-mix, Lily.


Austin grew up in Ramsey, Minnesota and now resides in Ham lake. He is currently attending high school at PACT Charter School, where his favorite classes are in math. He has always loved math and logic, especially chess, for which he recently won 3rd overall at a state tournament. His other hobbies include baseball, music, and playing video games. Austin thinks math is important because it helps develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. He enjoys working with students because he likes showing them the beauty of math.


Lead Instructor
Bryce grew up in Blaine and currently resides there with his parents and two sisters. Bryce graduated from Spring Lake Park High School and is considering going to college to become a math teacher. He enjoys finding tricks/shortcuts in math that make the problems simpler or more intuitive. He was the captain of his high school math team, which made it to state twice over his high-school career. 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.


Dan has a BA in both Philosophy and German from the University of Minnesota, where he also minored in mathematics. Since graduating he has tutored students in math through both the Upward Bound program and private tutoring. He says that math “can actually be really fun” and thinks it is important because it can open doors to so many different fields. His goal is to continue teaching but also to get a chance to travel and keep studying history and geography.


Lead Instructor
Calleigh currently lives in Ramsey. She is a senior at Anoka High School. She loves working at Mathnasium so she can help kids better understand the concepts. She has aspirations of one day have a career that involves working with children. She definitely prefers Algebra as her favorite math subject. When not at Mathnasium you might find her on the soccer field, reading a good book, or doing her nails. Hopefully she doesn't do all three at the same time.


A MN Native, Carter grew up in Zimmerman MN and currently resides in the small town of St. Francis. He holds a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota Twin-Cities and plans to later go to graduate school to pursue research in math! He thinks math education is important for everyone because regardless of a person’s path in life, math is a great way to train your critical thinking and problem solving skills. Carter has a passion for learning math and looks forward to opportunities to learn more math and teach others about it! When he isn’t studying, Carter enjoys music, video games, and longboarding, and collecting legos.
