Never Ending Knowledge Essay

907 words - 4 pages

Going into this experience I was crapping my pants. Being a freshman student going into college for the first time. Not doing so well on the placement test was the catastrophe that landed me into English 091. So my dad already being pissed off at me, I go into the class knowing my parents are disappointed only for myself to become disappointed that I was required to drive to Chandler every Tuesday which is like twenty miles away from my house. I was mentally infuriated but I had to maintain a smile because first impressions are everything. After I mentally calmed down I realized this could be an opportunity to brag about tutoring underprivileged immigrants.

My first students name was Juan he was a very nice guy. He wasn’t from an indigenous forest deep in the amazon speaking some clicking language which was a relief because that was one of my main concerns. He understood most of the English I spoke and had a daily job as a construction worker.
After I realized that they were normal people just like myself all of my past thoughts and beliefs left the building. He was pretty advanced compared to some of the other students which was a huge weight off my shoulders. This experienced made me feel privileged that I was born into this free country and didn’t have to fight my way into this...
