I am retired and i voluteer tutoring high school students who are failing or have dropped out. Its very difficult but i like the challenge. Most of them have given up so i have to boost there image of them selves and give them hope in the future before i can even begin to tutor them. After 30 days of tutoring if there is no change in there mental image of them selves i sadly have to move on. The students that show progress, i am usually able to get additional online courses plus my tutoring. Then i try to find job placement for the ones that work hard. The success stories keep me going. Thanks for letting me join your group. I am always looking for better ways to reach these kids. benjamin
