Hamza "... I prefer understanding concepts, rules, and formulas over memorization because I believe that when you understand them for what they are used for an why, it builds a lasting comprehension that is easier to grasp. I prefer working through practice problems and believe that practice really does make perfect when it comes to Math. For high school students, I could also give advice for applying to colleges since I am a recent graduate. I live in Bergen County, but was born, raised, and went to school in Hudson County..."
