# Zacharid

Certified Tutor

As a child, I always had an interest in mathematics. I am very proficient in elementary math up to calculus 3. I have a passion for helping people understand mathematics. I am easy to understand, fun to work with and can relate to those who don't understand math by taking the time figuring out their fear and weaknesses in math.
