Elijah M. is a sophomore at Steilacoom High School and an aspiring football star living in Washington state, where his father is stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord. An Army brat, Elijah has already attended 6 or 7 different schools. He would love to take his football career all the way to the NFL, but first he just wants to get through high school and get accepted to a good four year college or university. To do that, he needs to ensure his grades are as high as possible. Elijah’s favorite subject is English, and he enjoys writing, but he struggles in math. Once he discovered Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families, Elijah immediately started taking advantage of the program to help him improve his grades. He’s found the program so easy to use and helpful that he plans to use it until graduation.
Tutor.com: How did you hear about Tutor.com?
Elijah: There was a table set up at my school and I decided to check it out. There was a lady from Tutor.com named Pam there, and when she told me the service was free for military families I got really excited. I signed up right away!
Tutor.com: How do you use Tutor.com?
Elijah: I usually get on Tutor.com at night after football practice. I currently use if for math. I’m really bad at math and Tutor.com has really helped me. I do okay in my other subjects and I get enough help from just my teachers, but my math grade was really bad. Unfortunately, I didn’t find out about Tutor.com soon enough to really get my grade up this year, but it has really helped me learn. I’m on the right track and I plan to keep using it to get my through to graduation.
Tutor.com: What’s your favorite thing about Tutor.com?
Elijah: It’s SO easy to use! It was no problem to set up an account, and now I just hop on and get help. It’s awesome!
Tutor.com: If you didn’t have access to Tutor.com, what would you do?
Elijah: I guess I would have to use this other online service that is available. But it’s not nearly as good as Tutor.com. I was using the other service until I tried Tutor.com and then I stopped. Now I only use Tutor.com. It’s way better.
Tutor.com: What would you say about Tutor.com to other students in military families?
Elijah: If you are struggling in school like I was, start using Tutor.com as fast as you can! It’s really helpful and easy and can totally help you get your grade up!
