"Ugh! I'm not good at this!" I told myself at the beginning of the fourth grade school year. "I hate math!" More like, I used to hate math! I thought math was impossible, but I was wrong.

I realize this now thanks to Mrs. Becky.
In the beginning, math was just difficult for me. It was hard to focus and I was often confused and stressed out. I also wouldn't finish work, and I was really slow. On top that, the STAAR test freaked me out a lot. I needed help, but my parents didn't know what they could do to help me. At first, I didn't like the idea of having a tutor. I didn't want to be embarrassed or anything! But now, I'm actually glad. Mrs. Becky helped me! Mainly because she's the best tutor ever. She helps me understand things easy, and makes learning fun. She even gives me prizes when I do well. Mrs. Becky is awesome!
Now, thanks to Mrs. Becky, I'm more confident and math feels easier. I'm so thankful for her help! I feel like she has helped me clean my brain out. I can focus, and I know what I am doing. I absolutely know the STAAR test and it will be a breeze!
I used to be frustrated and stressed. Now I like math! It seems to get easier every day with Mrs. Becky. I feel smart and confident now. All thanks to Mrs. Becky. She is my hero.
