It was the third quarter of my senior year, and as much as I studied, practiced, and prepared, I was failing AP Calculus.
Math was always my worst subject, it wasn’t a secret. I dreaded showing up to class, and as my grades dropped, so did my enthusiasm for learning in general…. Until I found Russell with Elani Learning.
After a single session, only lasting an hour, I understood and processed more information than I had in the past unit combined. In less than a week, my grade started to improve, and it felt as if a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. Russell did more than teach me; he gave me support and courage to keep going, even in the face of anti-derivatives.
Elani Learning helped me end my senior year with a C in AP Calculus.
As I sit here in my dorm at UNC Chapel Hill, it is without a doubt that I could not have reached this point without Russell as my mentor.
