Mack Fina - U.S. Army

My name is Mack, and before I spent 6 years in the Army as a BlackHawk mechanic, I was struggling my way through high school. When I found out I was accepted to Harvard, I was panicking slightly. I had done absolutely zero math in those 6 years (other than counting down the days until payday), but I wanted to
succeed this time around. I had seen Army Smart mentioned on reddit before, so I decided to reach out and get some help.

 

My tutor spent a good two months going over math topics with me, from basic algebra to some calculus and probability. I ended up getting an A in my first Calc class, in large part due to Army Smart.

 

I’m a big believer in giving back, so I volunteered to help tutor last semester, helping students with Calc 1&2. I’m very thankful greatful for the help I received, and I hope I’m making a difference in the lives of others.
