Learning is a process of awareness.
- First we become aware that we do not know how to do something.
- Then we work hard to learn how to do it correctly.
- Eventually, with enough practice, we get to the point where we are doing it correctly without even realizing it.
You are in the middle stage. With some time, you will learn. I have seen it happen again and again and again.
So I have faith in you, and have the patience required to keep you on track ~ as long as you continue practicing and trying.
Have a great day!
M, I don’t give up on people until they give up on themselves. And even then, I keep trying to encourage them.
You are a very good teacher. Eventhough I haven’t seen you or often talk to you…still you made a difference with your encouraging words. As you know english is not my first language although I must admit that Filipinos are quite good with english,still grammar is our weakness. I may be having a hard time learning but I am willing and I will do anything to fulfill my goals. Kim, you are one of a kind. I had a lot of english teachers but you are UNIQUE…why? You never gave up and I think you will never will. THANK YOU!
I am now on Lesson 6, with your help…I getting through. When I started I finished the task for 19 minutes and now, 16 minutes…phew! Thank you….I will be forever grateful.
Thank you for your kind words. I am staring at the screen with my chin cradled in my hands. I have no idea how to reply.
First, I want to give credit to all the nurses who have taken CELBANPrep before you, and who have helped me to develop this successful method. It is from them that I learned the compassion that motivates my patience and tenacity. It is because they shared their stories that I will never give up. (Now your story will be added to theirs.)
Second, I want to thank you for your humility. I have met many Filipino nurses preparing for the CELBAN, some who are over confident and can not admit that grammar is a weakness. Your humility allows you to be teachable.
Third, I want to acknowledge all the prayers and blessing requested on my behalf from people around the world, or various religious and traditions. I know that I am sustained in what I am doing because of these special spiritual gifts.
As for your progress: CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so impressed! From writing in 19 minutes to 16 minutes is amazing! You prove that my methods are effective in teaching people how to write a report in 20 minutes, the amount of time given for CELBAN Writing. You also prove that practice, practice, practice is the key to developing this test taking strategy. I am so very impressed! You have come so far in just 6 lessons/6 weeks! And it is all because of your hard work.
M, I am smiling now. All of my life I have wanted to make a difference in the world. In reading your message and writing this reply, I know that I am making a difference; that touches me deeply.
Again, thank you for taking the time to express your kind words.
Have a sun shiny day!
With a smile,
