My daughter has been fortunate with her schooling for the most part. She has had some great teachers who have helped shape her into the person she is today. She has such an inquisitive mind, and I love watching her explore and discover new things on a regular basis. When she began taking physics last year, she was initially excited. It was not long though before she told me she wanted to drop the class. After talking with her about it, we decided to enroll her into a physics tuition program to see if that could get her interest back to where it should be.
Physics is going to play an important role in her future as she wants to be an engineer. She wanted to be an astronaut when she was younger though, and that is when her love for anything to do with space started. Obviously, to become an astronaut, physics is very important. While I knew that her career choice would more than likely change a dozen times before she even reached high school, I still encouraged her to learn what she could about it. I was right too, because she wanted to be a teacher, a lawyer, and a short order cook too in the next couple of years.
For the last couple of years, she has gotten very involved with volunteering in the community. She has learned about so many different things, and a local engineer has taken my daughter under her wings. That is where she has come to want to be one herself, and the physics tutoring that I got her has changed her mind about wanting to drop the physics course at school. It was not that the work was too hard, but the teacher was not keeping the students’ interest alive in it. Now that my daughter has been taking the physics tutoring, she is keeping the interest alive herself!
