My name is Chamougon Bernadotte. I am really passionate about teaching and also rejoice when someone else succeeds because of my help. I understand the concept of being confused in a class room, and that is why I chose varsity tutors for that one on one help. I understand how it feels being lost in a class room. I will be looking forward to helping as many people who need my help.
