As a Tampa tutor, I suppose the milestones in my business are not always measured by billable hours or other metrics. This year two of my students graduated. A student whom I worked with when she was just getting underway at Hillsborough Community College finally walked this spring. As someone assigned to help her get over the hurdle in English I and English II, I am very proud of her. She stuck it out and earned her AA.
It seems like yesterday that we were working together to improve her essays and writing.
Life goes so fast.
My first private tutoring client hired me when I answered an advertisement that my wife saw at USF for an American Government tutor. That was four years ago. I met a student who was having difficulty passing AG at King High School. Bright and easily capable of the work, she mastered the material quickly once we started working together.
This week she graduated and will be doing great things at FSU.
Those are the milestones that make me proudest of my work as a Tampa tutor. I am thankful to have had the chance to help both of them. If your son or daughter needs extra help this summer, I have two new openings for tutoring.
