Jimmy Wirth, Instructor 

Whats up, everybody! My name is Jimmy and I'm a senior at UNC Charlotte studying Computer Science. I am 22 and also in the Army Reserves. My parents always thought I was good with math and my girlfriend suggested I teach math, so here I am. I like teaching people new things, especially math. Math is a touchy subject because lots of people feel that they don't need it in the real world. I'm here to change that mindset and help those that need a new way to see how math works. I am very friendly and love talking to new people. If you ever see me, be sure to say hi!
