College is expensive. Repeating college courses is even more expensive! Nothing satisfies me more than knowing I have helped to save someone from failure. And I find even greater joy when I know I have helped someone achieve above-average performance.
How it began?
In the beginning of my college days, I took notice of a fellow student who was failing in her grades in Trigonometry. Our professor recommended that she should study with me, since I had a much greater handle on the subject. I did not need studying for my self, but I committed the remaining days we had in the semester to helping her overcome the challenge. I knew the time I had invested had certainly paid off, when I heard the report that her exam grades went from about 30% to about 80%. In the next semester, I helped her to succeed in an engineering math course considered to be the "filter course" to separate the "worthy" from the "unworthy". Today, she repeatedly tells me, "I would not have made it without your help", and "you should become a tutor."
