Hey guys, welcome back. My tutoring has officially started and I’m not going to lie, I’m not too happy about how it’s gone so far.
On Momday I had Spanish which did go pretty well, now that I’m thinking about it. The teacher was so nice and very understanding. She didn’t push me too hard and made sure to check in to see if I was getting it.
Yesterday however, couldn’t have gone worse. The tutor gets to my house a half hour late. He’s this slightly creepy middle-aged man and I’ve heard from plenty of other kids that he’s a really tough teacher.
Anyway we sat down in my dining room and he was trying to get me started. I needed my laptop so I got it and of course it took ten minutes to load everything so that was awkward.
But I did get to the website I needed to be at and I started doing the worksheet that went along with it. At first, I didn’t need help but then I started to stop understanding what I was reading. I was confused and my head started feeling funny. I read everything over like 5 times and I could not understand.
I started to get very upset and frustrated. By now I was in tears. The tutor noticed that I wasn’t writing so he told me the answer. I picked up my pen but I just couldn’t write. Even though he’d said it two seconds before, I couldn’t remember the answer.
Finally he asked,”Are you with me?” I shook my head and then my mom came in from the living room and she understood what was happening.
Our tutoring session ended early and I was so upset with myself that I just sobbed in my room after he left. I was so frustrated with everything that I couldn’t even go to dance.
Today I have social studies and I really hope I can do something. I still don’t feel well so I might not be able to but I’m going to try.
See ya soon!!!
