I have thought of writing this particular blog for a long time, and yet I’ve hesitated to write about things close to my heart from an education and personal perspective. As we enter the holiday season, I would like to wish everyone peace, happiness, and health.
Some thoughts on these topics:
I still believe the United States is the land of opportunity, and education is a historically proven avenue to a successful life. With the cost of college looming on the horizon, tutoring is an investment in your child’s future success. One of the benefits of tutoring is improved grades as a result of personalized attention from a certified teacher. At Tutor My Success we see that increased knowledge and understanding of subjects produces results. These improved grades can result in merit scholarships when the time for college arrives, and it does come quickly! I believe that Tutor My Success and our educational services can provide some PEACE of mind for students and their families during this very stressful age.
Francyne and I are like many parents we meet. We are working parents who drive our kids from sports to dance and a seemingly endless list of other activities. We are so busy . . . THEN THE REPORT CARD COMES! My kids have so much—iPhones, video games, Snapchat, and new software coming monthly that I have no idea about. Yet I would be happier if they took school more seriously. As an adult, I know what is at stake. Then I think of all their distractions. What about HAPPINESS? Now, I am not saying tutoring will increase happiness, or that it will make all the problems will go away. BUT there is a chance that for a few hours, a student’s long-term success and happiness can be a priority.
HEALTH: you have it, and you don’t think much about it. I had taken my health for granted for many years until I became ill last December. I am well on the road to recovery. Special thanks to my wife Francyne who took care of me and our family and stepped up to run Tutor My Success. I must also thank Bern, our office manager, who is the glue that holds Tutor My Success together. Many others encouraged me and nurtured my spirit; there are far too many to mention. Francyne and I and all the staff at Tutor My Success wish you and your family good health in the new year. Take time to care for each other as my family did for me. May you be as blessed as I have been, as is best said in this verse:
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
