Joe Vargas

- Founder, Academic Mentor
 

Hello everyone! My name is Joe Vargas and I am a firm believer in the power of education! I am a graduate from the University of the Pacific where I majored in Engineering Management with an emphasis in Mechanical Engineering. While in college, I began tutoring in math and science and instantly fell in love with the experience. I love to learn and adore the idea of becoming the best version of yourself. It's all about self-improvement; as you become better, you will be better able to serve. Every morning (after my two cups of coffee) I think about how I can maximize my day and get to work!
