Bio

As a born-again individual, I am passionate about my students' success. Sharing my gift for explaining math and science concepts brings me immense joy.

My expertise lies in simplifying complex mathematical and scientific concepts and motivating students to excel in these subjects. I encourage students not to quit. I have transformed struggling students' grades from 40% to 70-80% in their final exams. I believe that most students who fail mathematics and science do so not because of incapability but due to a lack of proper instruction.
