College Students in the Bay Area

Hi there, our names are Raza(Middle), Duncan(Left) and Qasim(Right) and we are currently college students living in the Bay Area. After serving as tutors at our local college, we came up with the idea of promoting free education for anyone interested. We decided to create a few short videos explaining some of the introductory concepts in Algebra. We hope you take something out of our videos and are able to continue on your pursuit to understand mathematics.
