My experiences at Gift Chances have been wonderful and have taught me valuable socializing skills that could have only come out of this program. My intentions when I first entered the program was to tutor students who needed help with homework. That was it. To my pleasant surprise, the students that I have worked with were always eager to do their homework and beyond. They asked educational questions and sometimes asked for practice. They were all respectable and I have never had to complain about the students not focusing on their work. To further testify my experiences, the connections I built between the students was something special. Every student that I taught had something extraordinary about them. I would learn their grades, siblings, and hobbies. I believed that if I had created a nice, comfortable environment for the students to work in, the students would thrive. As I carried on this mood, I would interact with the students by cracking a few jokes now and then or going on off topic rants at times. However, my main focus was to teach students to the best of my ability and having a fun, yet hard working mindset allowed me to really enjoy Gift Chances for the 1 ½ years I had served them for.
