A Graduating Student Reflects

“My time at the Tutorial Center was a great and challenging one.  I put in a lot of work and had many struggles…. With hard work, dedication, applying myself, and tons of help I achieved my goal of obtaining my diploma. Learning all the things I needed to get my diploma was an enriching and interesting experience.  The Tutorial center has armed me with the tools I need to enter the working world, and I am grateful to The Tutorial Center. With the same hard work and determination you too can achieve your goals, whether it’s your diploma or job, the Tutorial Center can help you carpe diem, seize the day.”

Running with The Triplets

 

Winning the Race to Success

We teach all of our students that success is rarely reached by a sprint, it’s more of a cross-country run. That’s why we introduce them to three supportive running companions: Pace, Perseverance, and Patience. 

By training with this important trio students learn how to set attainable goals, manage expectations, and achieve their dreams. 

Let’s face it, the beginning of every new endeavor is fun. When you start out on a project—any project—like returning to school or renovating the bathroom, it’s easy to confuse excitement for momentum.  It’s after you’ve been at it a while and the scenery doesn’t seem to be changing that it’s easy to lose motivation. That’s when it’s good to call on the Triplets for help.

Pace will happily remind you that you’ll get there as long as you don’t try to go too far too fast. Getting ahead and getting ahead of yourself are not the same things. Divide a long journey into smaller manageable lengths and before you know it there will be more work behind you than ahead of you and you’ll cross that finish line.

Accept that the road to success is a hilly, winding one. Perseverance steps up when you feel like you need to rest, or worse, you want to quit. Perseverance gets you around the obstacles in your path and helps you believe in the great things ahead even when you can’t see around the next corner.

Patience is the one who will offer a refreshing cup of self-confidence when you feel like you need to walk for a stretch to catch your breath, or because your shoe’s become untied. When the goal seems so far down the road—so far into the future—Patience will assure you that it will happen. So relax. It may take longer than you hoped—but you’ll get there.  

And you will. The Triplets and we can help
