Hello Math Tutors!
I have two CUNY degrees in areas other than math. I took precalculus in 1993 as an elective course and got an A minus, which is not too bad for someone who did not major in math. At 48 soon to be 49, my love for math is more alive than ever. Crazy, right?
I wanted to return to college for a math degree but recently learned that banks no longer have a personal loan service. I cannot afford college on my ridiculous current salary. However, I can learn math by using this great website.
My friends and family members think I am crazy for learning math on my own as a hobby. They say it is not practical. They say it a waste of time. I am 48 and will be 49 in a few months not 99. So, I strongly disagree with people who say I am wasting my time.
There are people who play piano just for fun. Most people who play piano will never have a recording contract but they love piano music. Apply this same idea to math. What do you say?
Do you honestly think I am wasting my time? Maybe I'll be hired by Kumon or Kaplan as a tutor when my math skills are ready for the challenge. I can think of more "ridiculous" ways to waste time and mental energy. What do you say?
Thanks for reading.
