Being a student of GMi taking A-level course, has made my career a little too time-constraining but in terms of experience-wise, it clearly gave me a double profit.
Try and analyze this situation:
Class period (roughly): 8am-4pm (excluding Physics classes)
Teaching period: 3.40pm-5.30pm (approximate value)
Assignments (roughly per day): 1 German essay, 2 Chemistry tutorials (+-20 Qs), 10 Maths questions, 10 Physics questions
Position: President of English Club, current Orientation Committee (OC), teacher, eldest brother in the family
my Maths teacher adviced us that when you're used to hardworking and perseverance in completing tasks at the given time, it gives a terrific payoff at the end.
And indeed I am applying that now in my life, slow, solid and steady...
my Chemistry teacher has told me to study Chemistry eventhough I hated it. The term; HaTeD not HaTe. So I did hate it but not now. Coz I found that its very interesting. And I'm taking the challenge of hers of able to work+study+succeed.
my dear students have taught me bout, how I myself should study, persevere and have fun.
Taught me to wake up early ( Thanx Malie! =] )
Taught me more on psychology parallel to what my Maths teacher is teaching, also bout psychology. (He seems like a motivator to me.lol)
So tell me, is being busy a hindrance or burden? It depends whether you want to think of it as it is.
Is learning solely in class? It can be anywhere!
I LOVE Learning!
