Quynh Nguyen (Math Center Coordinator): I have worked in the Math Center for 6 years and enjoy it because it helps me stay current in my field. My strength includes the ability to adjust to the different learning styles and levels of all students. I have a B.S. in Applied Math from the College of St. Catherine and would like to work toward a Masters in Math. (not pictured)
