About Kelly

Most struggling students do not lack ability. They just have not learned how to think. They often approach assignments just pulling themselves through the course. If they can learn to think about the subject at hand, then they can learn and excel.
My favorite subjects in school were history, geography and political science. I used to dread math courses. When I returned from the navy to finish college I was taking a chemistry course. And for the first time I saw math as a tool. It had a function. I began to look as simply a different language with some different rules. Once you realize it is a one step at a time process it was doable.
I went from struggling with the basic functions to quadratic equations, statistics and finance formulas. All by realizing that it is a one step at a time process.
It is not the subject at hand, it is how you approach it.
