Elaborate on your work experience as a math tutor - Personal Statement Example I remember the time when I tutored a 9th grade girl who always had bad experiences with Math. As a tutor, I learned that aside from helping students deal with Math, it is essential that a tutor should also give encouragement. Based from experience, this student was afraid of Math because she was not confident of her answers and that she feared making mistakes. I encouraged this student by encouraging her to exert some efforts to understand the problem and take one small step at a time. By boosting her confidence and telling her that she could do it, I actually changed her self-concept from being pessimistic to an optimistic in terms of developing a Ã¢â¬Ëcan doÃ¢â¬â¢ attitude, especially in solving math problems. I have been tutoring for four years and I teach 2nd grade through PreCalculus. I would like to continue being a Math tutor because I want to help children in need. I would like also to help other people who want to succeed in life. My ambitions of why I would still remain as a Math tutor are not to make money but to pursue higher education to expand the pool of people I could help and thereby be a contributing member of the academe and community for

Film The poursuite of happiness - Movie Review Example The turning point happens when Gardner joined a training program at a prestigious stock-broking firm, Dean Witter. Despite having neither Wall Street experience nor a college degree, Gardner defied all odds of being homeless and became a success stockbroker and ultimately, a millionaire. This review will explore the rags-to-riches journey and examine the film's true pursuit of happiness in the context of the significance and meaning of happiness from the perspective of a child and an adult, in addition to dissecting the writer and director's vision in presenting the obstacles Gardner faced and allowing the audience to find their own interpretation of happiness. The United States Declaration of Independence pronounce "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." (The Declaration of Independence 2008) When Thomas Jefferson wrote this, it meant a basic right and a goal of life and this film's objective was to capture the essence of these two notions. Even though the ultimate setting for happiness starts off as the pursuit of money as the solution to his problems, the fact that Gardner accepted an unpaid six months internship with a one in twenty odd of getting the final job offer dispels this view.
