"I believe tutoring is mostly about building a relationship with my students. When I was younger, I was blessed with a mentor who taught me so many of the ethics, morals, and philosophies that I know today. He also taught me about the importance of learning and education. His influence on me is the reason I am in college today."

"While I am there to help students so they feel more comfortable with the material, it is important to me that they arrive at the answer themselves so that they truly understand the concepts. As such, I do my best to guide students by asking them questions to lead them in the right direction but still make sure that they understand how they arrived at the best answer. In my free time, I love going to movies, reading, and traveling. I hope to have the chance to work with you soon!."
