Sophie’s Story

By the third test, I knew I had to do something. I did not understand what was going on in class. As hard as I tried, I just didn’t get it. My teacher went so quickly and I could never follow him. Even when I thought I understood, my grades showed the opposite. I met with Abby, a master tutor with a degree in Biochem from UMich. She also went to MHS and had the same teacher! We worked on material from class and she made sure I understood before we worked on homework. She was so nice and patient, even when I got really frustrated. She was always able to explain ICP so I understood it. She even made it interesting by explaining how she uses ICP at her job in nutrition. My test grades improved a lot and I actually kind of maybe enjoy science now!
