    I'm pleased to see that some teachers still care enough about their students to invest their time in extra efforts like after-hours tutoring.
    It reminds me of the teacher that turned my life around (a LONG time ago), Mrs. Iris Hayhurst. For various reasons (probably because my family had moved around a lot, plus having skipped a grade a couple of years previously) I was having trouble with arithmetic in third grade,to the extent that I was in danger of a lifelong failure. Mrs. Hayhurst must have seen my potential, and carefully nurtured me with extra tutoring. This laid the foundation on which I eventually scored an Achievement test in math of 800 (out of 800) and SAT in math of 770.
    I will always be grateful to her.
    Bless you for being cut from the same cloth.
