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.

Lincoln D

Assistant Center Director
Lincoln lives in Prior Lake and will attend Prior Lake High School as a Junior in the fall. He took AP Calculus BC in ninth grade, AP Statistics in tenth grade, and is currently taking Calculus III over the summer. With all this math, he hopes to become a math professor at MIT! Outside of math, he loves to hang out with friends and family, ski and play pickleball, and learn new languages and instruments.

Cecelia N

Assistant Center Director, Online Lead Instructor
Cecilia has lived in Prior Lake for the majority of her life. She comes from a family of five - her parents and two younger brothers. She graduated from Prior Lake High School and currently is attending the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She will be a Senior this upcoming school year and will be graduating next year as a Computer Science major. She has been working at Mathnasium for a few years. Cecilia also has been volunteering in her Vietnamese community as a TA and leader on the weekends. Her current future goal is to become a software engineer after she graduates college. She enjoys baking, listening to music, and playing board games with her family. Cecilia's favorite thing about math would be the feeling of accomplishment after being able to solve a complex problem. This is the best feeling when she's able to do the same with the students she works with. A good math education is important as it is the base for a lot of careers and being able to understand the fundamentals will help a lot. Personally, her major uses math and logic as the base of coding. Since she grew up with good math education, she found herself being able to go through these math classes much easier compared to other peers. She has been working at Mathnasium for a few years now. She loves teaching math concepts and working with students, so working at Mathnasium was perfect! One fun fact about Cecilia is that she used to be an Oboe player when she was in high school!
