Aunty Lavina really helped me where classroom lessons couldn’t. Math is a subject that I have always struggled with and the rapid pace of learning in the classroom made understanding certain concepts arduous. Receiving one on one attention from a tutor who would delineate the steps of difficult problems in a straightforward manner really helped me understand the mechanics of what I was trying to learn. Aunty Lavina also helped me work towards realistic goals and pushed me towards trying harder in math while giving me invaluable support at the same time.
At ALEC, I also learned Chinese from my tutor Anita, whose efforts helped to guide me through the onerous task of learning a new language. Her guidance was vital to helping me excel in Chinese.
