Since childhood I've had a passion for teaching and learning math. I started actually competing in math tournaments starting in high school, but even in middle school I would do math for fun. Soon realizing my deep passion for math I ended up going to college for mathematics and now currently work as a Junior Java Developer for BGC Partners. That is a quick summary, but more detail below.
In High School, I was very into competitive academics. I was on math team, science team, and even history team. My school was brand new so there weren't many people on the teams, but I always tried to make it more fun for people to come. I learned new math tricks on my own to help my fellow teammates. I ended up being district champion in number sense 2 years in a row and top 3 in mathematics those 2 years as well. Even back in high school I loved to help people with math regardless of what year they were or if it would benefit me or not. Now I usually just tutor math because I hope to maybe become a math teacher or professor in the future! Of course that's not for a while and I would have to do my Phd but I think it would be worth it because I believe teaching others math is amazing and it can truly help someone's future and there is no better feeling than that. More importantly personally I think math is just truly magnificent how these formulas and calculations of an intangible idea somehow explain all the real world.
