2 Weeks ago our Plebe was SUPER SUPER STRESSED about a Physics I test. He did quite well, but credits 16 hours of studying with another Plebe and 2 visits to a GREAT Tutor with his success. As I understand it 13 of the 22 Plebes in his class failed that Physics Test. There is another test Friday 1/29/10. Our Plebe is SUPER SUPER STRESSED once again. Only this time, he says there is no Tutor to turn to for help. The Tutor he loved last time has, in the meantime, quit. The instructor says he is going to break his record of failing 11 of 22 students in the class this Tri. I don't exactly likely the stats or the perception I have of the record keeping. As a former Army Officer I was proud of good stats. Obviously these Plebe's need help. Where's the tutor? What can a Plebe do or who can they turn to for help? I don't post often, but when I have seen how hard our Plebe worked last time to do well and realize he does not know who to turn to this time, I'm not feeling very good about it. My job as a parent, "To Encourage." Well last time my encouragement was to go to the tutor. This time - "What?" I told him to get with his buddy and teach each other. Read the book and self teach. I sure don't know who that tutor was who helped last time, but in my home, that person was a Saint. Now they are Saint Nowhere.
