I have a bachelor's degree in Physics and Atmospheric Science. I believe that learning is essential in the modern world and strive to help others become successful. In doing so, I also learn myself. I have had a passion in learning and teaching math to others since elementary school. I believe it's a highly applicable subject that everyone can learn if done in the right manner. In my free time, I love to weight lift, watch sports, play video games, and hang out with friends.
