How I Can Help

I am very friendly and know how to explain materials in a more straightforward form. I love helping and working with other students to tackle questions as well as finding the core ideas of lessons. It's my passion.

Why I Mentor

I became a mentor so I can assist, guide, and work with students to help them understand not only a specific question, but also the core lesson behind the material so they leave the room feeling like they can tackle any question.
