I am an electrical engineering major, currently enrolled at Auburn University. I have studied advanced math courses up to Cal 3. Due to how recently I've taken these classes, I am very familiar with the modern methods and material currently being used in the classroom! I LOVE math, and helping others see all the fascinating patterns that make up this wonderful subject is very fulfilling. :)
