It is universally known that Math is one of the hardest subjects there is. Kids from all ages will attest to that, and even the not so young people still admit to having trouble with Math. In its practical sense, Math is easier now because of the many gadgets that provide calculators and formulas for almost all Mathematical problems there is. However, schools teach Math and forbid the usage of calculators unless for higher Math that really calls for its help.

It is because of Math’s terrifying difficulty that a lot of Math geniuses are able to make money out of giving tutorials. I have a student from last semester that shared with me his unique experiences while handling home tutorials for kids in his area.

There was one particular incident where he somehow became the hero of the family of his tutee, not just because their son was gaining higher grades in Math, but because he was able to save their house from greater damages due to strong rain.

What happened was that he was just starting his lessons with his tutee when Mrs. Perez, the mother, asked if it was okay to leave him and the son so she could go and buy some groceries. Seeing no harm in it, he said it was okay. However, fate happened, and it rained really hard. Mrs. Perez called him through his cellphone to check on them and he said that they were just fine. They continued with the lesson when suddenly he heard dripping noises from the inside of the house. He searched for the source of the noise only to find out that a large hole on the roof near the corner of the house is causing a mini flood on the floor. He immediately went to get a bucket from the bathroom and placed in under the dripping roof. He also got bowls and whatever he could use to catch the dripping water that began to multiply all over the room. There was one in the center now and another near the large hole by the corner but not near enough to have it drip on the same bucket as the large one.

When Mrs. Perez came home also dripping from the rain outside, she was shocked upon seeing bowls and buckets all over the room dripping with water. She thanked him for taking care of the matter. He replied that it was not a problem and that Ms. Perez should call a roofing and plumbing company soon in order to address the problems in this newly bought home they have.

The story not only aims to tell you that you can earn a lot of extra cash by being a tutor. It also showcases just how much experience one can gain from being a Math tutor. Students with the ability to understand Math much better than normal kids do, should try venturing into the tutorial business for added income and the chance to help other kids as well.

Cars have every right to be treated the way you would treat human beings. They are not cheap things to come by with, hence, it is but right to take extra care for your cars. You do not want to spend thousand in owning a car only to treat it like trash or whatnot. Treating it as something unimportant will hasten the decrease of its market value and will also lead to mechanical problems of all sorts.

A colleague shared to me his secrets of having a great car that has lasted through the years.

First, you should protect your cars the way you protect your children. If you provide food and drink for your child, then provide your car with the right drink as well. Always consider the type of gasoline and engine oil you allow your car to be in contact with. It is not about giving it the best kind, but about giving it the right and appropriate kind of gasoline and engine oil.

Next, just as much as you send your children to monthly or annual general check-ups, even when you see nothing wrong with their health, you should also do as much for your car. Send them to a mechanic every month, especially after those times before and after you will use the car for a long drive. Having it checked before the trip will ensure that you will have a worry-free trip and having it checked afterwards will ensure that you will be able to find out any problem that your car might have had through the course of the trip, enabling you to fix it immediately before it gets worse.

Lastly, just like your efforts to provide your children with a great home, make sure that you provide your car a great garage. A great garage means a safe and secure garage that will prevent any form of burglary, as well as ensure that no harmful chemicals will be able to contaminate the car. The garage is not the storage room. Also, make sure that you provide your car with a sturdy garage with a sturdy roof. Also make sure that your plumbing system does not interfere with your garage so that when damages occur in your piping, it will not greatly affect the garage with water damage issues and other problems.

As a self-proclaimed green thumb, I have always wanted to have my very own greenhouse in my backyard. It does not need to be big and fancy. It should only be just the right size enough for me to fill up with plants and enjoy pruning and spraying with fertilizers. It would also be a great place to relax and forget about the worries of work or at home. Having a greenhouse will also allow me to spend more time with my plants and have the chance to talk to them and ease on them my troubles and burdens of the day. It will also ensure that my plants grow healthier and lovelier than they ever could.

I am still in the process of saving up for that dream greenhouse and I know someday it will become a reality, just as much as it became a reality for me to finally own my dream house, thanks to a real estate agent friend. She also happens to be a green thumb. She and I had been dreaming of our own greenhouses ever since we met each other and shared the same passion for plants and gardening. I’ll be heading over to her place by the end of the month to see her greenhouse and help her with a few more arrangements of the plants.

Roofing and Plumbing for a Green House

She shared to me that she had been saving for it for a very long while now and her husband gave her a generous amount for her birthday, to help with the making of the greenhouse. She immediately went ahead with the planning and construction while she secures her plants in their garage, as the plants wait for their new home to be completed.

For the roof of her green house, which is an important part of it all since there should be panels and mechanics that could control the amount of sun that is absorbed and allowed to pass through to the plants, she said she hired the best roofers in the area. She only had one shot to make this greenhouse into perfection so she made sure she hired the best. She was not dismayed by the service company. They gave her greenhouse a very effective roofing system that is very much suited for the greenhouse’s needs.

She also made sure her plumbing system was just as efficient as the roof. This way, the “irrigation” of her plants in the green house was set in a way that is cost-efficient and organized.
