Rather than repeat my open response, I would just like to take the opportunity to thank this site for its creation. I was referred to this service by one of my old professors from Skyline College in San Bruno, CA. Everyday, I wake up looking for a purpose i-n the morning. Education is a two-way street. Getting diplomas and degrees is a function of being a hard-working student coupled with knowledgeable professors, supportive friends and family and persistence. Being a tutor is a chance to provide encouragement and academic success to students in need of strengthening their weaknesses. Getting a new student is like the first day of school for me because we will learn from each other. One-way lecturing is no fun. Students will get light-heartedness, patience and follow-through until they are satisfied with results. When they take the test we are working towards, I will feel like I am behind them, cheering them on.
