Math Taught Me Patience

Math taught me patience and humility. Math taught me we can be perfected with effective approach and solution based strategy. Math taught me to be bold in confronting problems and not be afraid to handle even the most challenging of problems. No matter the headaches. Especially when working with students and when I am math teaching and tutoring students. Sometimes a student will understand a mathematics concept in another explanation. Main thing is being patient enough to show and teach the foundation. I light up when they light up and get it. Sometimes a student needs to know when to pick it up. Therefore I learn patience and humility through mathematics. It's because I had coaches in my life that believed in me, pushed me and motivated me to be at my best.

​Here are some of the results from a student I worked extensively with. In the beginning, I didn't jump in to tutor this student since it was a course I not once enrolled in. What I did rather was I coached this student indirectly how to earn those first two 100%'s for MindTap. Then that student's grades teetered from an A+ to a low B-. That was when I took a leap of faith to step in as this student's tutor, because of this student's result the former semester in a lower level version of this class. I did not want this student to end with the same outcome of barely making it. I chose to tutor this student in a course I have not enrolled in that has a ton of reading involved. I did not give up on this student. I coached this student on the mentality needed to be effective, study strategies, time management, and good study habits. Also I emphasized about having a finishing spirit. How we finish is far greater and more important than how we start. I also coached this student on the ability to yield to correction well. It's trial and error that requires patience and perseverance. This student completed MindTap with a total of nine 100%'s that boosted the student's overall MindTap grade from a B- to an A-. I challenged this student.. pushed this student.. motivated this student to not settle for a lower than a 100% result to help that student's MindTap grade finish stronger than how it started.

 

Go Back

I’m so proud of u bro... You had that GREAT FAITH...
Keep on doing what you do, let’s continue spreading the love of God upon us...

Your student must be so appreciative of you for taking the time to invest the many hours you have put to get this kind of results. Amazing! Keep teaching math Jason. You are so passionate about it. Continue to inspire others to love math the way you do.

Too bad I missed it! I should have requested the day off.

Looking forward to it! Thank you for sowing into my friend Ruby & I.

Congratulations on having your video featured on TED-Ed! I won’t be able to make it because I lead a Connect Group at that time. I’ll have Siri watch it for me.

This is so awesome Jason! Congratulations to Hazel, Moriah, & Micaiah!
