As a master's student and former medical student, I know how challenging academics can be. I also know how having a helping hand, a guidance through the confusion, can help one gain confidence in themselves to excel. From tutoring children to post-graduates, I have seen that all students (no matter their age, level of education, strengths, weaknesses, etc.) who are willing to learn can succeed.
