Math Tutor Pageant


Math Tutor Randy



About this week's tutors:


What did you do to take care of yourself today?
This question prompted me to dump a lot of extra creamer into my coffee.  I usually drink it black.
What was the most dangerous situation you've been in?
Driving between the Idaho Falls campus and Pocatello campus during winter storm weather.  This is always a bad idea.  Classes and work can always wait.
How do you feel about taking risk?
I remove my feelings from these kinds of decisions and do a risk versus reward analysis.




How do you contribute to a better society?
As part of my daughter's Girl Scout Silver Award, she made a cabinet that contains personal hygiene items and pet supplies.  I continue to take donations and stock the cabinet for her since she is gone to college.  This allows people who need the supplies to continue to have access to them.
What is the most unbelievable thing that's ever happened to you?
I won the same MTV contest twice.  I was a first place winner and got to go to Daytona Beach and meet Whitesnake.  When I got home from the trip, I also had a runner up prize in my mailbox, which was a signed copy of their album.
What talent do you wish you'd have?
I have always wanted to play the bass guitar.  I have never been able to afford lessons or find the time to take lessons.  I am hoping that when I retire, I will be able to learn.
