A week ago, I was gnawing on my fingernails as YaYa sat for final exams to close out his freshman year of high school. His preparation included 4 hours of additional tutoring focused on the exam material for Algebra, English, and Science. He ran through a bit more of his English quizzing with me but the remainder of the studies sat with him. Although I offered many times, he did not take me up on my suggestion to run through the Science material.
And in the end, he passed…but NOT with flying colors by any means.
We are told that we should expect things to step up in intensity in the Sophomore year. Apparently, if he gets through that, he will do well from there on out.
