School was supposed to be fun
Somewhere along the way, it got weird. Life got crazy complex, academics got a lot harder, and the competition got ridiculously fierce. You started worrying when your grades would slip, and started staying up late to finish the never-ending piles of homework. You started waking up on test days stressed out that a handful of B's on the report card would kill your chances at the dream college.
That’s not good.
Most of this angst is caused by math and science classes, right? Don’t worry - it’s not just you. Everyone's having a hard time with tough STEM courses.
You’re dealing with a firehose of information. You think you get it in class but on test day, it’s like “Ugh. What is this Greek? I’ve never seen this stuff before! I don’t even know where to start!”
Hey, if you could figure things out just by reading the textbook and paying attention in class, it would be a breeze. But it’s not.
And it doesn’t help that the teacher always skips over the most important fundamentals. 😡
