According to the musings of my ever so intelligent math Tutor..
a three year old could do what I can not. Loving. No wonder i have your little so called "Math Phobia," -Tutor-. Who wouldn't? -.+ You mean to tell me that if you had gone through school being publically humiliated, harassed verbally, being told you're "lazy" despite your best efforts, and inability to do simple calculations has ever gotten you in trouble- you wouldn't be scared, too?! -.- *Feels like showing tutor this forum* She's basically just like "HEY! EVERYONE HAS TO LEARN THE EXACT SAME WAY THAT I DO BECAUSE THEY JUST DO AND THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. IF YOU CAN'T LEARN THE WAY I DO THEN YOU SXCK AND YOU SHOULD JUST GO DIE IN A HOLE. LOL UR A RETARD!1oenone, I DUNT CARE ABOUT BEIN POLITIKALLY COREKT CUZ I'M "EDUCATED", APPARENTLY. *stares meaningfully at diploma* SEE IT SEZ I EM SMART. LOLLERSKATES." *Fumes* Angry

SOMEONE RANT WITH ME KTHX.

Hi X,
I wonder if you read Mathsproblems thread; Guidance Councilor, where it seems that your tutor is much the same.
Where your tutor, instead of admitting that she doesn't know how to help you. Just tries to pass the blame onto you!
Any chance of getting a different tutor?

I also noted your emphasis on the word *Fumes*.
Are they coming from a tutor that *Stinks*?Angry

Geoff.

xD Perhaps x) And it's so frustrating because I KNOW if I could get through to her she would understand, she isn't STUPID-- She's not a TERRIBLE person, she just doesn't KNOW! And I tried explaining to her that I really don't understand and her responce is that I'm "lazy," perse. And with me being angry is not a good time to start ranting at her about how she's an ignorant old fogey. xD. Maybe that's what it takes? -.+ I'll have to check out that thread. We can be all "hate-the-math-tutor" together ;]

I dislike people who pass the blame. She sounds like the lazy one X. As a tutor she should have the skill set to teach someone with a LD. How unprofessional of her to make you feel small.

I would encourage you to get a new math tutor! Preferably one who is able to teach you multisensory math

Everyone learns differently and it sounds like you are someone who might be able to benifit from being taught in the way you learn. Good luck Smile

Three year olds can do math now!? Who'd funk?

I've never had a maths tutor, my family went to get me one and I spent half an hour with her doing my homework and I think we did some basic sums (I was seven). In a rare occasion I actually got all the questions right! So for this one reason I was perfectly fine at maths and didn't need help. Though this situation simply didn't reflect at school.

But I will get one for the next school year if I don't get my C grade, but I have no idea what it'll be like. Will I need to go back to the very root basics? (don't know times tables) All the while I'm scared of the tutor thinking I've had brain surgery that went wrong or something on those lines.

I really don't think I could cope with your tutor, feeling belittled brings me to the extent of tears.

Maths is too evil, it turned your poor tutor into a monster! Pfft Your tutor honestly sounds like their the lazy one.

I visited X's profile, by clicking on the name, and I see that it's been about three and a half years since his last visit. But he has left us an email account. Sometimes those still function, even after a number of years have passed. - jus'
