    Admin, if you hate that people are trying to DO WELL in school so much, than why are you on this site, HUH? The idea of being a Tutor is to be helpful and kind. The statement you made was not helpful nor kind. This poor 6th Grader is just trying do get good grades. I was in that spot too, once upon a time, and this site helped me so much. Its hard at Connections Academy because there is no Science book to look at. Admin, have you ever done any Connections work? Its very hard! So please, PLEASE refrain from cruel spamming and otherwise hateful conduct.

    Thank you,

    Vanessa Skellington
