Dominique "...Even though my degree is in Nutrition, my favorite subjects in school have always been Math and English. I don't like admitting that I've always taken pride in myself for receiving high grades in Math and English.

Hillary "I have been teaching in one way or another since I was 14. I know how frustrating it can be when you feel like you just don't get it and I'm here to help!

I am especially competent in the logic games of the LSATs, so if that's your weakness, I'm your band-aid!."
