To Earn a Little Extra Money

Posted on April 13, 2008 @ 11:12 pm

To earn a little bit of extra money while I was in college I decided that I was going to become a tutor and offer essay help to first-year students who just could not figure things out on their own.  It was a good idea at the time, but I did not realize how time consuming it would be.

I have always enjoyed writing essays and in never have a lot of troubles with them, so I figured that I would be a natural teacher when it come to this.  But, I found that I was easily frustrated with students who just did not seem to get it.

I had one in particular to asked me for help with his philosophy essay and by the time we were through, I think I ended up writing his whole essay myself.  I also found, that I just did not have enough time to do my own work when I was spending so much time helping others.
