About Mensah

I have been tutoring since high school. Mothers would pay me to tutor the children in my neighborhood. I have always had the gift of breaking concepts down so people could understand. I am comfortable with tutoring any high school subject in mathematics as well as physics. I should also mention I am a certified Java professional, and am very comfortable discussing those concepts as well. I look forward to guiding you or your child to full comprehension and much success! I have been tutoring since high school. Mothers would pay me to tutor the children in my neighborhood.
