I have a problem with algebra. I have taken it five times throughout high school and college and have never once passed.
The schools tell me I just need to try harder, or take it from a different teacher, but I HAVE. I try as hard as I can and I have had five different teachers and many tutors. I just reach a point where I can no longer comprehend it and I fail.
I always have A's and B's in my other classes, so it's not like I'm entirely mentally deficient. I simply cannot pass algebra.
I finally quit college because I was getting so frustrated. The school wouldn't let me take any advanced classes in my major until I passed algebra.
It's been two years now, and I really want to go back and get out of my horrible, underpaid desk job by majoring in Art History with a minor in Asian Studies. I'm just so scared that I will fall back into that old cycle and have to drop out again.
I'm just looking for some ideas on how I can pass this class and move on so I don't have to spend the rest of my life feeling like a failure.
