Each of the "kids" I tutor texted me when they got their tests back. One received an 81%, the other an 85%. Much better from the failing grades they each received on their first test, but some room for improvement. I am so proud of them both and they each seem quite happy with the results!
On a side note: one of my students said the nicest thing to me right before this test. He stated that he has never been worried about a test before because he never felt smart enough to pass it. For the first time he was nervous because he felt smart enough to do well. I am gratified that I could make a difference.
