Success is the best!

Being in college is an exciting/challenging time. Juggling school, work, and a personal life can be stressful at times. It can also be extremely stressful when you struggling in a particular class. I remember I was having a hard time in a chemistry 102, I went to the teacher for help, went to his office hours, was looking for any type of help that I could find. I went to the school tutoring that was helpful. However, there where so many students there that needed help. The tutor would have to jump from student to student.

I was leaving the building one day when I saw the flyer on the wall about the TRIO YES Program. I took a picture of the flyer with my phone and I went to the room to go and sign up for the program. I got a personal tutor for the chemistry class that I needed. It was amazing because I didn't feel like I had to rush to understand the question. The tutor would always take his time with me and explain the question to me. I ended up improving in the chemistry class, and now before I start my semester I go and register with the TRIO YES Program to start off the semester strong.
