Successfully conducted my first tutoring session today with a wonderful young man named Richard. I helped Richard with Algebra II and it was an absolute pleasure to meet him and his mother today. Richard is very bright and I think he and I will work well together in improving his performance on his exams. His mother asked that we move forward with weekly appointments for now until she and Richard feel comfortable that he no longer needs "coaching" for his exams. Once again, what a blessing to be able to help young people with a subject that I enjoy so much. I look forward to working not only with Richard, but hopefully with other new students as well. I will never forget Richard and his mother giving me my first opportunity to help someone. Thank you Richard.
