Welcome to my profile. I am John. I am a native of Phoenix, Arizona, and have lived here my entire life.

I am transferring to Arizona state University to complete my degree in Secondary Education Mathematics and get my teaching credentials.

In addition to helping students with their math progress, I have also gained from the experience as I have had the joy of seeing the success of these students. My experience didn't start with my tutoring position at the college though. I even helped many classmates when taking math courses myself. In these classes, we would form study groups, and whenever there was a question, I was able to help bring better understanding in to what was taught in class. My instructors said of me, that I was very influential in the success of their classes and the success of my classmates. It is my desire to hel
