With my computer science background and other variety of sciences, I had to take a lot of Math classes. Also, I have always had a easier time in Math and Sciences growing up. I do sympathize with others that have it harder, which is why I decided to use my talent to help others. I truly believe that a teacher can really influence a student experience of a subject. I really hope my service will help any student to see the beauty in Math.
