Angela de la Rosa, Center Director
Angela is originally from England, where she earned her degree in Physics with Medical Applications from the University of London. She is also an ACCA (UK) certified accountant. She moved to the United States in 1995 after working overseas for three years in Asia.

John spent 10 years as a Bell Labs scientist in the field of telecommunications and photonics. He earned his bachelor degree in EE from Stevens Institute of Technology, and also holds MS Degrees in Optics and EE from the University of Rochester and Columbia University, respectively.

Currently, Rohan is a math teacher at Immaculate Conception High School and received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering at The New York Institute of Technology.

He has also tutored numerous students taking Statistics, Probability, Linear Algebra and Physics (Algebra and Calculus-based). Rohan is grateful for working at Mathnasium because it has given him the chance to also work with elementary and middle school students. He loves Movies, Poetry and Music. His favorite movie is Miyazaki's Spirited Away, and his favorite poets are Robert Frost, Rumi, and Rose Hartwick Thorpe. Interesting Fact: Rohan is also learning to play the Bassoon!
