From A Fail To A Win

, , , | Learning | April 20, 2016

(I’ve already been having a bad day with ‘aunt flo’ coming to visit, so I’m ready to burst into tears at any moment. This is the day my math professor hands us back our test that we had taken at the end of last week. This is a test I thought I had done actually really well, but that is not the case; I get it back and it’s an ‘F.’)

Me: *trying my best not to burst into tears*

Professor: “Hey, [My Name], what’s wrong?”

(I show him my test and already I’m starting to cry.)

Professor: “Oh, right… You thought you did really well, right? Come on to my office. We’ll talk about this.”

(We go to his office, and I’m already crying my eyes out, barely able to talk but he goes over the stuff with me and we realize I just made simple mistakes and switched some stuff around. Otherwise, he says, it would have been a good grade.)

Professor: “Hey! There we go! It was all just some simple mistakes; here, let me mark them for you, and this way you can have this on the retake!”

Me: *barely able to get out a thank you*

(He let me stay there in his office and helped me to calm down, and offered to help me more on the tests. Thank you so much, sir. Math is NOT my best subject but you actually took the time to help me with it.)
