Why my job is worth it.

Rate this Entry
I have a job where I tutor children in ELA and Math.

So today, I tutored a girl that I haven't tutored in two months. I used to work Sundays, but haven't in awhile. I happened to work today because I was filling in for someone who had to cancel.

She was really happy to see me and said she missed me. I was happy to see her too, she's a good student. Halfway through the session, she suddenly asks me "Is there a tutor that's nicer than you?."

Getting a compliment like that really makes my job worth it. Especially when it comes from a student. I am forever grateful that I like my job so much. Little things like that just make me so happy, and outweigh any negative things that happen.

Today is a good day.

    That is nice to hear.

    I had quite similar experiences when I worked as a substitute teacher for a while. And what was more impressive in that is that I think that substitute teacher don't very often get compliment from 13-16 year old teens.

    @Mr. Fahrenheit: That sounds great! You must have been a great teacher then.

    @Synthesis: I said I couldn't answer the question because I don''t know the answer.

    It is a great feeling, isn't it?

    I see hundreds, if not thousands, of people a day where I work. Any one small comment like that makes my day infinitely better, like the other day when I had a small group all thank me in unison for making their day better. It also makes me enjoy my job, and the people I encounter every day, so much more. Bad things may happen, but the smallest good overcomes even the worst of the worst situations. There is no word that can accurately describe how something small and simple like that makes you feel. It is a wonderful feeling.
