Mathnasium franchisee Mike Ammer of Huntley, congratulates a student for her answers during a tutoring session at his South Elgin location. In the automotive industry, for 32 years, Ammer had been managing two different car dealerships, one in Chicago and one in Merrillville, Indiana. "I was gone from the house 14 hours a day," he said. "I was good at what I did, and I did have a passion for it, but I felt myself losing that passion, and when that happened, I knew it was time for me to move on."
