Most kids are either already back in school or will be heading back next week – and it can be exciting, overwhelming, and nerve-wracking all at the same time. And that’s just for the parents! Who knows what the kids are thinking, right?? I know I’m nervous for Jeremiah as he heads to kindergarten next week in a school where he knows…no one. He doesn’t seem to mind, though, and he’s always been an outgoing, funny kid who seems to attract friends. I am also worried about academics – granted, in kindergarten, there’s hopefully not much to be concerned with, but as your children age, what if they need a tutor for specific subjects? That’s why I was really excited and surprised to learn that there are actual in-home tutors in Phoenix via a company called Varsity Tutors.
School can be extremely difficult, and I know I struggled in high school – English was always an easy subject for me, however, I struggled in classes like Algebra and Physics. What I wouldn’t have given for a physics tutor! My worst subject, though, by far, was GYM. How sad is that? It’s probably the easiest class to pass, yet, when I was a sophomore, I FAILED GYM CLASS! How mortifying to look back and remember that – and, of course, to share it all with you.
Even with my high school struggles, I managed to graduate just fine and go on to college. And do you know what? In college, with the help of math tutoring in the study center, I not only passed algebra with flying colors – I went on to become an algebra tutor myself! It was quite the turn of events, and from my personal experience, tutoring can really help make a difference. I went from hating math to loving it – in the span of a few years! And Varsity Tutors can help your student, too.
