I Have a Tutor!
Her name is Lauren Sittler. She's a senior, and she's very good at math. Her first love is probably horses -- she has a pony named Munchkin -- but her second love could be math. "I just like that it’s so logical...that every problem has an answer," she said.
The school connects math prodigies with other students who want or need help. Everyone involved gets extra credit, and there is time built into the schedule to meet. So every other day, Lauren sits down with me after Algebra II class and chimes in if I have questions about the absolute value functions we've been studying.
She's taking three Advanced Placement classes this year, including AB Calculus. And she's busy applying for colleges, hoping to get into a biology program that will put her on track to be an equine veterinarian. Her chances look pretty good with a 4-point-plus GPA and a 2100 on the SAT.
