Joseph Plouffe - U.S. Coast Guard

My name is Joe Plouffe and I served in the U.S. Coast Guard for almost ten years as a corpsman. I left the Coast Guard in 2019 and returned to school in summer of 2021 to pursue a nursing degree. I needed to take a statistics course as a prerequisite for my program. I don’t consider math to be a strength of mine. I hadn’t taken a math class in over ten years and was very nervous. I found Army Smart on reddit and decided to give it a try. 

The tutor I was assigned, Ikaika, was amazing from the start. He was very easy to communicate with and was very knowledgeable about statistics. He helped me earn an “A” in the class and I can honestly say that wouldn’t have been possible without Army Smart. If you are a recently separated veteran returning to school, I highly recommend giving them a shot. You have nothing to lose!
