Letters to My Tutor…

My dearest Simone,

I’ve been preparing for a small grouping of exams, and time has been short. I find that I’m still more confident as far as my math studying abilities than my chemistry study skill. I believe the fact that many of my family members were were math positive when I was growing up helps on this front. My mother used to make a game of adding up the checkout cost in the grocery store. If she were off by any noticeable amount, it usually meant there was some checkout mistake. Simple lessons like these in the usefulness of very basic math seems to have cemented a lifelong math positive attitude for me.

With that, I must get back to studying chemistry.
