 David Andre, Center Director

 David has more than 37 years of experience using Math Concepts in business and         education environments. 

 His education includes a BA in Management and Computer Science; In Process is a BA in   Mathematics at the University of Minnesota and an MBA from Warwick School, London   England.  He was employed as a Teacher’s Assistant for Teachers on Call and was assigned to   many different high, middle, and grade schools including students with autism and other   learning disabilities. 

He is a former hockey and tennis player who enjoys coaching kids in the USTA Tennis league.  

Our teaching method for helping students young and old is designed to help those that have a fear of or anxiety with the subject of Mathematics.  From my own experience, mathematics was difficult until I was introduced to my seventh-grade math teacher.  In summary, he made mathematics fun and it was from that humble beginning that led to my love of learning and teaching Mathematics.

  Bobby Tarnowski, Owner

   It thrills me to see a young person's face light up when it finally hits them how math works and
   is useful in the things they're passionate about. I believe that a solid understanding of
   mathematics is foundational in our ability to make good life choices, equipping us to live lives
   with greater independence and accomplishment of our goals. I graduated from St. John's University with a B.A. in Mathematics and continued with a Master's Program in Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the University of St. Thomas. Math has been indispensable throughout my career in engineering and management, and is also quite useful in my business and family life.
