Owner/Center DirectorPeter Abrams, Owner 


Peter Abrams has been a Queens resident his entire life. He grew up in Flushing, graduated from Queens College with a B.A. in Accounting, moved to Bayside and continues to reside there. Peter began a distinguished accounting and auditing career at several large firms. In 1999, he was selected for the position of CFO at Devon Architects, where he handled all aspects of the operation.

 Peter has always had a keen interest in math and an appreciation of the way mathematics affects everyday life. He developed many different methods to figure out how to answer problems using logic and problem solving skills. Though successful in his accounting and managerial positions, he felt that he had a different calling; one that included his interests, passion and talents. He found Mathnasium and quickly realized that he could have a positive impact on many children by introducing them to the Mathnasium Method and they too would become interested and passionate about mathematics.

Peter continues to teach math to children in a way that makes sense to them, encouraging them to build Number Sense, and helping them develop the skills and confidence they'll need to succeed in the future in a fun, wholesome and nurturing environment.
