Tutoring: the best side gig for scholars

Nothing is more rewarding than 1 on 1 tutoring. I’ve been tutoring for 3 months now, yet still every week is different. It really keeps me on my toes. I have to research and learn. It also humbles me since this young kid is now correcting me about chemistry. The other benefit is that most of what I learned in high school is forgotten. It just wasn’t relevant in my life back then. Everything was so much more important. But now that I’m older and (a little) wiser, I have the context to put it all in place. For instance, I learned that the 1950s was the Modern Period where everything was about Utopia and making the world the best place possible. I find that really inspiring. It also hits a deeper root, because I’ve always loved the modern Period but didn’t know why. Now I know it’s because we share many of the same ideals.
