I like math and I like sharing my understanding of it. Trying to empower people with a bit of math know-how! I make straight, to the point videos on how to tackle different math problems. No gimmicks and no distractions. My goal is to make your time as useful and effective as possible when studying. These videos are intended to be a supplement to what a (hopefully) good teacher is providing you with in the class room.
