Dear Mr Wadge,
I am sitting at a cafe and Lola by the Kinks is playing in the background and it has prompted me to write to you.
After 17 years of being out of high school - I decided to return to university (once again) this time to do a degree in computer science. In order to apply, much to my horror, I needed Math 12 to get in. And I needed to finish the course in three months. Yikes.
In high school, I took Math 11 over two years and barely passed. But I thought to myself, I am an adult now, how hard can it be? So so hard. But my frustration disappeared after the VLN course directed me to your online lectures. I could not have done it without them or you. So thank you, thank you, thank you. You are an amazing teacher and I am glad I found you in my second round of high school math.
I received 92.5% on my final and 87% overall. I have submitted my marks to the university and hope to hear back soon.
Thanks so much,
I find it pretty inspiring how Alexis did not let her past difficulties with mathematics stop her from pursuing a new goal. Very courageous! And such determination! We can all learn from this sort of attitude.
Let's all send positive vibes to Alexis to make sure she gets into university (who knows, she could be a classmate to some of you...!)
Thanks again for the amazing email Alexis!
