One of the greatest people to come from Pittsburgh was the great Fred Rogers, who was called Mr. Rogers by kids and adults alike. His show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, inspired a generation of kids to believe in themselves and accept each other for the qualities that made them special. He was like a part of the family, even to the people who did not know him for real. Every day, he was broadcast into the homes of many kids who believed in his message. At the end of each show, he signed off with his signature saying, “You’ve made this a special day, by just your being you. There’s no person in the whole world like you; and I like you just the way you are.”
Learning is often a chore, but Mr. Rogers’ personality was what drew viewers in. Many kids hated school but loved Mr. Rogers. With Calculus tutors in Pittsburgh, you want to have an experience that your child enjoys. Part of what makes school difficult is the environment. The general tone in class is order and obedience. Being a teacher, you are sometimes warden as well as the educator. With a home tutor, the environment is much more relaxed.
Instead of feeling the pressure of an authority figure, a Pittsburgh Calculus tutor is more of a friend. Like Mr. Rogers, they feel like someone that could be a part of the family. You do not always have to develop that kind of a relationship with your tutor, but they offer the opportunity to get a little extra care, which is a comforting safety net.
Sometimes, the best tutors are not the ones that teach you the most facts or formulas. In the case of Mr. Rogers, who might have been called an etiquette tutor or social skills tutor, his best lessons came from having someone to look up to. Charles Barkley used to say that he was not a role model, but that’s the Philadelphia way. In Pittsburgh, your math tutor can be a positive role model like Mr. Rogers.
