Get to know Tanya and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
My name is Tanya, I am the student. I am 49 years old. I have gone back to school after losing my mother and fiance. I stay at home and take care of my elderly father. I do not get paid. I live off of student loans. I have a 17 year old son, a sister, and two brothers. I am working towards getting all of my requirements completed, so I can at least work part-time to help out while my father is still alive. Then, be prepared for my career once I am able to work full-time. I just got an invitation from the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. I have been on the Honor List and the Dean's List for the past two semesters. However, this class is bringing my GPA down, and may affect my financial aid. I love game shows, puzzles, camping, and helping others. Being able to be prepared for the next two exams and bring my GPA up means everything to me, and whether I will be allowed to continue my education. I would appreciate any help that I can get.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
To complete my Social Sciences Degree and pursue my career as a Substance Abuse Counselor, so that I may help people that struggle with addiction.
