Get to know Joshua and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Joshua is currently struggling in AP Calculus AB, he is at the bottom of the class with a grade of 75%. We have had an interview with his teacher and he has recommended that he seeks extra help to ensure his success in class. He understands most concepts but struggles when applying and combining the learned concepts together into one question. He doesn't have a strong problem solving ability but he is a quick learner. Joshua needs to practice his skills and a friendly tutor to support him to reach his goal.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
I pray that my student will recieve the proper help he needs and gets into his university program @ UOFT Rotman commerce to follow his dream of accounting.

What are you most grateful for?
My son.

Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
AP Calculus AB is the student's problem. He is at the bottom of the class @ 75% and needs to improve his mark for university.

According to the student, how can we make the world a better place?
We can follow philosopher Plato's theory of forms as we strive for one certain form that society thinks is perfect, we can eliminate factors that don't line up that form. For example if we would like to find the perfect way to build a statue, we can follow a certain blueprint that will guide us to perfection, the same thing can be said for society. We just need to find the perfect blueprint for society that we can all follow

What is the student's favorite book?
Fault in our stars

What does the student want to 'learn to be' when they grow up?
I would like to become an accountant that studied at university of toronto
