To This Day: YOUR Actions in YOUR Community

Most of us, at some point, have been hurt. Someone said something about a part of us that we were already insecure about. Someone stepped all over us to make themselves feel better. Someone just didn't understand, and no matter how much we tried to tell them to stop--because listening to their words felt like they were pouring acid into our lungs--no matter just how much we tried to shield ourselves, they always managed to wriggle their way back into us.

Most of us, at some point, have cried in a corner, too ashamed to tell anyone.


Let's Recap: Updates from the First Week

Dear dreamers,

Despite our upcoming biology and physics tests, research assignments, and our own lives, we're happy to say that Forward Tutoring has officially been in action for an entire week! This couldn't have happened without you--people interested enough to even give the blog a cursory glance, so we'd like to thank you and ask you to party with us! (:


5 Steps to Success from an Entrepreneur

"I'm going to change the world and disrupt the society in a good way."

He would call this free advertising, and he's totally right.

Meet Mike, a "little guy from Chicago" who grew up in a blue-collar family. He was the first from his family to go to college, and he started off as a salesman for IBM. No one could have guessed that from there, he ended up starting the very category of Customer Relationship Management with ACT!, his software that applied technology for use with people. He is now CEO of his newest baby, VIPorbit, which is once again aimed at better connecting people through technology.

Two days ago, he graciously stopped by the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science (TAMS)--which is our school, by the way--to share his stories and secrets to success.


Next Steps: FT Succession!

Hello, our lovely erudites!

With just one week remaining to the official launch of the Forward Tutoring website, the FTeam and I have been staying up late both out of excitement and in preparation of the upcoming week.

Our conversations:
Jennifer: Today was a lot of Forward Tutoring.
Mitchell: Oh I see. Those are good days. (:

And without further ado, we bring you exciting news: Most recently, this FTeam has grown by nine new fresh young minds! (They don't usually dress quite so fashionably, but today was an exception for our special induction.)


DID YOU KNOW - 80% of You isn't Junk After All

Back in 2003, a group of really smart scientists all over the world finally mapped the human genome. Since then, they have continued research in the human DNA sequence and finally released nine years of findings on Wednesday! The nerds in us FTeamsters are so excited for the scientists and all of human kind because this is just really awesome. Not kidding at all.


Why You Shouldn't Have to Pay Attention in Class

We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist... using technologies that haven't been invented... in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet.
