Mathematics had always been my biggest enemy since I was in elementary school. I spend extra time and money to get help outside the school in a math tutoring place. I once asked the tutor what made her happy to do her job. “The happiness when you see your student succeed cannot be bought anywhere else, and you will never know until you experience it on your own,” she answered.
My curiosity about the happy feeling of teaching led me to an initiative to help my friends at school who could not afford to pay for private tutoring. I did not find the sense that my teacher told me about until my friends whom I helped succeed in their exam. Since then, my interest and ambition to study more about Mathematics increased and I started to be a good friend with it.
I did not know the existence of the tutoring center until I got an email from the campus tutoring center offering me an educational and professional on-campus job experience because of my good achievement in Mathematics classes that I took. Honestly, the main reason why I registered was that I want to pursue that same satisfaction when I see other people succeed but not because of helping others. However, that changed once I became a tutor.
There is a tutee who always requires me more time and energy to teach him because he had a different learning ability. One day, he told me that he had a disability in studying and he did not have the money to get help off-campus. Since then, I changed my intention of being a tutor. I want to help people to pass their classes so that they do not have to retake the same course. Although I have only become a tutor for two months, I have seen a lot of changes in students. Most of them that came to the tutoring center in much confusion has left the place knowledgeable and then came back with good news that they pass their exams which brings me so much joy.
