My name is Oscar Im and I am the Owner of Mathnasium of Wauconda. When I opened my center in 2017, my goal was to have a place where kids could come and discover their potential. Each day I make it my goal to ensure that students have an effective, engaging, and encouraging learning experience that cultivates an intuitive understanding of math.
