I heard back from the one of my students that I tutored last year. He needed to pass his EOC (end of course) algebra 1 assessment prior to the 2012-2013 school start so that he could continue with the next in the math series, geometry. I found out that he passed (6 months after the fact)! My only question is, why did it take so long to find out? I find this is typical. Even though I ask for feedback, students reaching their goals have a tendency to quickly move on to their next "mountain" to overcome. That's OK. I still rejoice at each success!
