SELF-EVALUATION
As a student, I am currently putting forth my very best effort.
I believe that I can do better in one or more classes with the right tutor.
I believe tutoring will not be helpful - I just need to try harder.
Hiring a tutor will give me an unfair advantage over my peers.
My homework/classwork scores are awesome, but my test scores suck.
My test scores are high, but I often forget to do or turn-in my homework.
I would have a better grade in a class if my teacher wasn't so terrible and/or unfair.
My parent(s) have unrealistic academic expectations of me.
I feel that I have the full support of my parent(s) when it comes to my academic performance.
