I love Mathematics and I have a broad knowledge of the subject having taught at both high school and university. In my spare time, I enjoy running and cycling, and learning new things on Khan Academy.

I love helping others to figure out problems. I am exceedingly patient, and I am able to break complicated problems down into manageable steps.
