A Pleased Teacher/Tutor

I have been a teacher since I was five. Well, not a real teacher, except when I helped my daddy pass the GED when I finished fifth grade. Later when I was in high school I helped Daddy teach a night class in math.

After teaching in the classroom for fifteen years I began my tutoring career and have loved that I can work with a student one-on-one. I ‘d like to share this most recent thank you and proof that I am a DAMNED GOOD teacher.

This girl and I have been working together for four years. She was home-schooled and her dad moved around for his positions in hospitals. I have followed her and her brother by using Skype. They have a home in Canada and return there between jobs and so Doctor Dad can work Emergency on weekends. Dad-the-doctor expects this girl to be a doctor. We shall see; however, I have nurtured an official literature geek. She just finished her Senior year four days ago.

This email makes me grin and feel like the best teacher ever.

Hi Mary,
I finished marking the book. I think it’s safe to say you were right when you said there is a lot more to come in the second half of the book.
Time to reread and make notes now. 😀.

My work is done!

    Congrats, MM. I’m sure you feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. I also work one on one with students teaching piano lessons. 🙂
