Our Team

Our specially trained math instructors will teach your child how to understand math in an individual setting; our unique approach enables us to explain concepts really well and lend a helping hand to every student. Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn! Read below to learn more about our talented team:

Dan Parker, Owner/CEO and Associate Center Director

"Mr. Dan" is a 20-year Air Force veteran and Aeronautical Engineer. He has been an engineer, manager, and consultant with Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and TASC, often mentoring younger engineers along the way. Dan caught the teaching bug as an instructor pilot and has long dreamed of teaching math. With the help of wife Lynda, daughter Dominique, and an experienced, talented and caring staff, Dan began fulfilling that dream by assuming ownership of Mathnasium of Plano in June 2008. Dan's greatest satisfaction is seeing our students running into the Learning Center waving their school math tests - many with higher scores than they ever thought possible. Please see the reviews at the lower right of this page and also our "Mathnasium of Plano Testimonials" section under the "Results" tab above.

Chuck Kinch, Center Director 

"Mr. Chuck" has founded numerous companies and led multinational public corporations. He was VP pf Products for ComputerLand, President and COO of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, President of Paragon Retail Systems, and a VP of Operations and Marketing at a subsidiary of Tandem Computers. At New Horizons, he developed expertise in education and training best practices. As a manager, he "brings a passion for customer centered growth and responsive management to the team."  But now Mr. Chuck's greatest passion is helping kids really understand math and "get it." He loves to teach and is out on the classroom floor every chance he gets. Chuck has completed training here and at Mathnasium Corporate HQ, and has been with Mathnasium of Plano since November 2017.
