How has PTP impacted you? My experience as a tutor has helped me to discover a long-dormant passion for education and teaching. The most rewarding part of my job is guiding someone to a “lightbulb moment,” where everything clicks and makes sense, and these have made me want to find more opportunities to teach and mentor other students.
