Have you ever been told by a friend or colleague, "Let me know how I can help!" How many times have you thought to yourself after feeling extremely overwhelmed, "Wow, I wish I would have sought out assistance sooner!"
This has happened to me more times than I want to admit, so as you read further, please heed my advice!
I began a PhD program at a private university in Colorado in 2010, right after completion of my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. My initial goal was to be a college professor, teaching students eager to learn. The program was paid for, as I received a teaching assistantship. This meant that I would be both a student and tutor for business calculus.
