Man, what I want to know is where was the Internet and places like Guaranteach when I was going to school. Now a days if you need some help with your homework, are studying for a test or just have a quick question and need some Math Help, you can go online and find some help.
Online Tutoring is now available with the click of a mouse, talk about a society that is spoiled and desires instant gratification! Back in my day you had to find some body that was qualified, had the time and was someone that you could handle spending a good amount of time with in order to get any benefit from the time spent with them.
I remember when I needed some Algebra Help in my senior year of high school. My parents couldn’t seem to be of any help, but they knew a neighbor that they hired to spend a few hours with me a couple of times a week. This woman was nice enough and she did end up being a tremendous help to me, but the smell that surrounded her each time she came over was enough to make me sick to my stomach and made it hard to concentrate on my work. She smelled like a wet dog, bless her heart. Sometimes I smell that smell and have flash backs of the afternoons that we spent together working on all types of math issues.
