As many of you might know from my previous blogs I am half Japanese and half Caucasian. Do not let me being Japanese fool you. Stereotypes that usually go along with me being half Japanese are: I’m smart, really good at math and science, and probably know every Asian person or am somehow related to them.
The truth of the matter is I am not like that at all! I am terrible at both math and science. I am smart, but it’s not just from being half Japanese. I’ve always had to try really hard to get the grades that I have, even if that means procrastinating to the very last second. Right now I am in Natural World, which for us is like a science class and Analytical Reasoning, which is math. I have always had trouble in science and math for as long as I can remember!
Since I have been struggling a lot in these classes at Butler, I have gotten a tutor for both my math and science. Thank goodness for those two! They have helped me out so much! At Butler getting a tutor is really easy because we have the Learning Resource Center, which will find a tutor for you! Although you can’t get a tutor if you aren’t going to class, or haven’t done the necessary steps that you can do by yourself first.
I take my first natural world test on Wednesday since having a tutor, so it should be interesting to see how much it really is helping. So far I feel like it has been helping a lot, but I am so grateful that I finally have a tutor and hopefully I can get my grade up before semester is over. Only three weeks left!
