Today after school a student came to find me to ask me for help. Here’s what’s interesting; he’s not one of my students, and he didn’t want help with my subject. He’s met me at tutoring a couple of times where I helped him with history. Today he got particularly stuck trying to paraphrase a quote for English class he came looking for me.
We talked through it (“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” is a lovely phrase, but REALLY HARD if English isn’t your first language) and he left with half his homework done.
I don’t know. It made me feel really good, so I thought I’d share.
