Thomas is having trouble with understanding the material in his math class, and his classmate Bertha offers to help. Thomas shows low self-esteem and Bertha reassures him that anyone and everyone can better their understanding on any subject.
Don't worry Thomas, I think I can help!
Hi Bertha, I'm so nervous about today's class, I'm so behind and don't understand anything!
I'm not sure I can be helped! I'm so behind in our math lessons, that I just don't think I'm smart enough to catch up.
That's not true Thomas! Anyone and everyone can master their understanding on a topic with some hard work and dedication!
Bertha goes on to tell Thomas that she part-time works for an online tutoring site called Tutoring.com. She offers to work with Thomas an hour before class every morning.
I had no idea that I was a visual learner! Here I thought I just must be incapable of learning math.
Everyone's way of learning can differ! Different doesn't mean better or worse, it just simply means different!
Shortly after figuring out his learning style, Thomas's grades began to skyrocket in math class. His mood as well as self esteem improved as well.
You're so welcome Thomas! Just always remember that anyone can achieve anything; a person's intersectionalities does not limit anyone's capabilities to succeed. It's all about figuring out what works best for you and not comparing yourself to anyone else!
I cannot thank you enough for helping me not only in math, but showing me that anyone has the potential to improve at anything they work hard at!
