The Perfect Guide

I hated maths.

Like, I just couldn’t stand that subject in primary school.

Honestly, now that I think of it, I never really enjoyed studies, back then👀

But in grade 6, my mom had enough of my nonsense and said that it’s about time that I join tuition:”)

Now, I am a person who hates it when she’s bound to do something. The word ‘Tuition’ made me think of me being captured like a prisoner, studying day and night🤯

I just wasn’t ready for that sort of a commitment, especially, towards studies.

But today, 6 years hence, I think it’s one of the best things that happened to me.

On day one, I told my new tuition teacher (quite directly)

‘I don’t know shit about maths, and I hate the subject’

Then as soon as the words were out of my mouth, I regretted 😬

I mean, I just insulted the subject, my teacher loved dearly and specialised in.

She just smiled, shook her head and patiently started out with the basics of the subject (which I didn’t know, but should’ve known, since it was taught a few years before I even joined the tuition).

It was when I joined the tuition, that I realised how unclear my basics were. I had zero concept clarity.

Fast forward to one year from my first day:
I had an improvement of 8℅ in my overall academic score.

I was motivated, thriving in everything I did, and had unbreakable self-confidence 🤭

My tuition teacher was not JUST a tuition teacher.

She taught me life lessons,
made me a responsible citizen, and most importantly, motivated me enough to believe in my abilities.

In fact, I think, my social activism and the need I feel to help society comes partly because of my teacher🤓

She helped me gain a sense of what’s right and what’s not.

She didn’t force her perspective on me, she empowered me enough to have my own perspective😌

This teacher’s day, I just wanna thank this superhuman💞

Happy teaches day!
