John Wooden once said, "Success is never final; failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts."  Courage is what it takes to get a little bit better everyday.  Through time, when you put a little bit better together with a little bit better, you get a whole lot better.  Don't worry if you fall six times, focus on getting up the seventh.
     It is my goal to help students get a little bit better everyday.  We will work on grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading comprehension, and I don't charge extra for life lessons.  I ask every student to try their best and be the best they can be because as a wise man once said, "Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming." (John Wooden)
