Donna3 minutes agoThank you Marwa for all you help in understanding Statistics. This is not an easy course for me as Math is my least favorite subject. It takes patience and no judgement to help others. I appreciate your guidance and encouragement during each lesson!

I have been helping others learn math for four years now, and I enjoy watching it click for others just as much as I enjoyed it when math first began to make sense to me. From experience, I know that mathematics can be very easy, or seemingly impossible to learn depending on how the information and concepts are presented. I first gauge how my students like to learn and determine any weak areas that need strengthening, and then I guide them towards a firm understanding of the concepts.
