It turns out that tutoring is quite a convenient part-time job for a friendly med student. I now have 2 x 10 year olds and an 8 year old as students. And amazingly, we're all getting along swimmingly. Must admit to playing favourites already - the one girl I have is a little mini-me perfectionist and we're having a great time with junior algebra and french picture books. The boys have shorter attention spans... Was vaguely worried that I was so out of the loop with small people that it really wouldn't work, but hey, they even seem to find me Cool. Amazing.
Coming up in med is a paediatrics assignment for which I'll have to meet a REALLY little person. More on that soon - can't wait!
