Tutor Training Reflective Blog Post 4

This week I started working on the essay “What I’ll Give Back”. At first, this prompt seemed easy enough. However, when I actually got around to working on it, it proved harder than it looked. Therefore, I brainstormed of ideas to help me stay on track in the essay and not veer of course like I usually do. The topic of giving back has always been on my mind for the past few years, because every time my parents buy me something new or I complain about something, I feel extremely guilty. Hopefully, the essay will help me rein in all the thoughts and clearly explain how I’ll give back and my perspective on this topic. I think my essay has reached a good draft 1 and I hope to send it to Mr. Dilts to get feedback, so I can improve it before the final submission date.

E-learning feels normal now, almost like it’s a part of my life, and I wonder daily if this is what home-schooling feels like. My stress levels have definitely gone down, but I still hope everyday that I get to sleep more. I’m looking forward to getting back to school and helping middle schoolers in classes!

  1. Hi Erica,

    It’s good to see that you finished your essay and get along with e-learning! Yes, we always feel hatred and guilty for our parents. But life is a serious of paybacks because when you raise a child, you are actually paying back to your parents.

    I look forward to returning to school as well!

  2. Hi Erica,
    You never fail to astound me with your efficiency! I love how you are always ahead of the game–it’s truly admirable. I aspire to have your time-management skills and discipline. Though like you, eLearning seems so normal now (I have trouble imagining what it was like back when we had normal school), but unlike you, I am still working on managing my time effectively. I still can’t believe you already finished your first draft of the essay–keep the fantastic work up!

  3. Hi Erica! That is good to hear. You definitely manage your time well and I’m proud of you for sustaining a routine. I can relate to your thought on eLearning. I think it’s tough to even imagine normal school days. I wouldn’t have been able to manage sports and extracurriculars with school going on. The best part about eLearning is when you finish everything, you are free to do whatever you want. I’ve been sitting in the sun reading a lot and I think it’s a good way to detach from computer time. Best of luck with the paper!

  4. Hi Erica,
    I am glad how you have gotten used to your eLearning! Personally, I also find eLearning very normal to me, and I really like how I’ve gotten a lot more sleep than before 🙂 I am still under my 14 days quarantine but I hope to go out soon to take a walk (or short breaks from screen). I agree that the “What I’ll Give Back” paper is definitely harder than it looks. As freshmen, we are all trying to figure out the best way to give-back, and I find this a very difficult task as well. However, through this opportunity, I am confident that you will be able to reflect much more on yourself and recognize some privileges you have that you can share.
