WHAT LENEAR LENS AND FP MATH MENTOR IS KNOWN FOR

HOW LENEAR LENS AND FP MATH MENTOR GOT STARTED
“I started working for McGraw-Hill in December 2015. I needed more of a work/life balance, so I began to take interest in photography. Some of my coworkers are photographers and thought I’d be good at it. I started taking photos and grew in my passion for it. Needless to say, I’m so fond of it that I don’t want to stop.”
“Math tutoring happened during college in 2010. I needed a summer job and there was an opening as part of the EOF/EOP program at NJIT. I took on the job that summer and found out that teaching and mentoring came easy to me. I decided to work as a freelance tutor in 2016.”

Until next time, keep moving, keep praying, keep fighting, and keep believing until you see your dream fulfilled.
