Nice better than doing some cheap labor on the side, kill two birds with one stone
What I did during the school year was grading + tutoring for the school + private tutoring
it works out alright when you add it all up, and it's all related so you aren't switching modes too much
it helps to get in good with a department, for me it was the math department
I just need to get some classes under my belt probably since im only now getting into calc 1, ive don calc in highschool i was pretty good at it.
by "get in good" I mean I just hung out there all the time
yeah calc is fun, I wound up sticking with that sort of stuff for a long time
I know a wahmen that's a professional tutor. That's what she does for work, and does it for private school kids, and makes a very good living doing it, sets her own hours, "fires" customers if they don't work out, etc.
how do you get started in that?
sounds hard to even get customers
I can ask her how she did it. Customers snowballed by word of mouth so now there's the equivalent of a "waiting list" and she's considering hiring some people to fill in.
My sister in law runs her own tutoring center. Snowballed from private highschool tutoring. She mostly just keeps them focused and shields them from neurotic parents.
She's started to sub out subjects she doesn't want to teach personally
Real money is in test prep though. most parents want to see certifications and high test scores from you to prove you're worth the price.
Any recommendations for textbooks on physical anthropology?
Or anything about understanding people's racial origins by seeing their physical characteristics
What level of physical anthropology?
@Tyler Baker Calc 1 was fun memories, Calc 2 was harder, Calc 3 is pretty cool so farm
multivariable calc, right? I loved that.
Sequences and series with matrix, vector and linear functions.
College won't give me calc 1 credit, so I'm taking calc 3 to add to my calc 2 credit.
@JC17-OR I primarily want to be able to identify jews by looking at them, I'm secondarily curious in knowing the features of various other subpopulations especially european ones
I can't think of any textbook which has that kind of info. The best advice would be to study the faces of known Jews. The trick is in the proportions of facial dimensions, though some Jews are hard to spot due to mixing.
Yep, one of the things I looked into recently (mentioned on the daily shoah) is what's called "the semitic smile". It's a way the lips curl on semitic people that gives them a slight smiling look, that euros don't have. It's more distinctive among semites than the famous jew nose. I'd like to know all these features of identifying so not only relying on one (like the nose) but on a few different ones in trying to determine if someone is a jew by eye. In my day-to-day experience I think I meet more Jews than normal whites, and often you can just tell but sometimes it's ambiguous and it would be helpful to know distinguishing features among jews and euros to understand better.
Interesting, I've not heard of the smile. I mostly identify Jews by the traces of admixture you can see in facial proportions. Natural eye I guess.
@JC17-OR is there a name for that? In fact I think I heard someone mention something about almond eyes
Old textbooks would help you, nothing new.
@Joe-MN any suggestions which old textbooks? a lot of the newer stuff seems really autistic about monkeys and stuff I don't care about lol
go to a library, maybe a university library
yeah I wish I was still in university
find old books online, scanned ones or whatever
just go there
Archive.org might have some texts to read.
Here's an article on faces and ancestry.
