Student Success: Chenel Moore

Tutor Angelia Shields and Chenel Moore

My math student, Chenel Moore, went to Anne Arundel Community College today and registered for College Algebra.  That was the goal that Chenel and I set – keeping in mind that she had to be algebra-ready to take the class and feel confident that she could do well in it.

We’ve spent hours at Glen Burnie Library and Panera Bread-Glen Burnie preparing for this moment.  While we were preparing, we formed a wonderful friendship where she knows that I have her back, not just with math, but with anything.  And, I told her in the very beginning that she will say math is fun when we are done, so we’re working toward that goal.  We had some goal-based incentives we reached and we celebrated when we reached them. She’ll be confident and prepared.  It was a huge step for her to pay that money today and have confidence in herself to register.

  My heart is full because I know that we made a difference in Chenel’s life.  She couldn’t afford a math tutor and college, and it’s because of AACLC that she didn’t have to choose.
