During 1999-2000, I was teaching a student iin her Pre-University four subjects....Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English...French and Computer Science she learnt by herself...She passed in all subjects other than Mathematics...initially I felt guilty, because I knew Mathematics was the weakest link...but I didn't give up....I taught her Mathematics for two more years, she finished her Bachelor of Computer Applications and is now doing her MBA in London! I had to learn Digital Logic Fundamentals and Accountancy to teach her for her BCA, now I am delighted!

Sometimes, you teach and the student doesn't perform well.....are the teachers to blame? I'd say No.....

Summer, and everyone in the park ...

]]>Pain. Must inflict... Pain.

]]>two months ago I was helping a friend for his final math exam and It was a painfull experience : |

*how could I teach him differentiation if he didn't knew what's a continuous function???*

We wad to review the subjects of the whole year in a few weeks... but in the end...he didn't pass the exam and I felt a little guilty : (

suddenly he asked his friends "how many feet are in a mile?" his friends didn't know. Thats philadelphia for ya. lol. So I spoke up, "5280". Next thing I knew I was helping the kid with his homework. He was only in like 8th grade, I'd much have prefered he'd been in highschool and doing highschool level math, (more fun!) but it was still nice to be able to help.

I could probably make a fortune teaching n00bs math in philadelphia!

I'm teaching my younger brother 6th grade math and my younger sister Algebra 2 this year. w00t! Teaching math is fun!
