You Can Do It!
I have had a struggle with math for a lot of my life. I had to push my way through College Algebra, Calculus, Financial and Managerial Accounting, and Managerial Statistics. I have a BBA in Management from a small University in Dallas. I am looking to get certified to teach math and I think tutoring would be a good start. My goal is to allow my students to grow a passion for math and know that if they can set their mind to it, they can do it just like I did.
