"...Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to..."
