I first notice that my knowledge was further along than that of my classmate in my ninth
grade year, while in Geometry. I was doing very well in my class and was only a freshman,
were as there were sophomores and a junior in my class that were struggling. I realized that
I was taking a class that most freshmen don’t take their freshmen year and I was
progressing very well in the class. At that point I decided to push myself to take all honor
classes that were given at my school and some AP course while graduating an entire year
early. I figure that by pushing myself that I would always be challenged, and I enjoy being
challenged for it keeps me on my toes. As I future my education I will continue to push
myself to become bright and be the best I can be at the field I go into.

I have limited myself to two major areas, that I devote most of my attention to when I am
needed. One of those fields is tutoring at a community program called Monday Night Alive.

every Monday night. I am one of the tutors who participate in this program and I am the tutor
for mathematics. I devote my time to this program for I feel that it is my duty as someone
with greater knowledge to pass on my information that I have acquired or tricks to student
that need them to help them be better at school. I enjoy teaching students that are in high
school who are struggling in mathematics, because I have a higher understanding for the
subject and can explain to them on a one on one basic how to work a problem.
