I have never written a blog before... ever, so let's see if I can do this right!
Last week has been an exciting and busy week. The beginning of the week started off with me taking the ASVAB cold turkey (no studying). Although I have no real intention of joining the military (I love my work too much!) I wanted to see what the ASVAB was like, and if I did well enough I thought I would offer myself as an ASVAB tutor.
The test was about three hours long, and there was no way to make it any quicker. I finished each section, looked over the answers, and still had about 15 minutes to 20 minutes to spare after each section. I was concerned at first because I thought I was going through it too fast. After all was said and done my test was scored on the spot, and I landed in the 95th percentile! I imagine I could bump that up to the 98th if I studied for those electronic/mechanic questions.
So needless to say, I feel quite comfortable tutoring for the ASVAB... the best way to take this test is by using test taking strategies. For problems where you would expect to take 5 minutes to solve for the answer, you can do it in under 10 seconds if you know what to look for in the answers!
Today I received great news. Of 26 applicants who were interviewed, I landed a job at a very nice private prep school. I am really excited and I get to start tomorrow at the crack of dawn.
Life is good, I do what I love and love what I do. Here is to this week, hopefully working with you.
