“Math is everyone’s favorite subject after taking a course with Dr. Wallis. It’s obvious that he loves what he does, and his passion and excitement for the subject he teaches is infectious. For me, his approach and attitude made all the difference. Because of Dr. Wallis, I was able to be successful in a college-level math class.”
