M: Hi, Joey! Congratulations on doing so well on the math exam. I heard you got 90 points. J: Yeah. I couldn’t believe it. I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me. M: Oh, it was nothing, believe me. I was very glad to help.
J: Well, it meant everything to me. I never understood the math problems that well until you explained them to me. M: Thanks. I really hope I’ve given you more confidence to study on your own now. J: You have. And I really appreciate it. I feel I should do something for you, such as buying you a gift or something.
M: That won’t be necessary. Actually, you’ve already done something for me. J: What could that possibly be? M: You’ve made me more confident, too. You know, I want to be a teacher in the future, so I’m so glad I was able to teach someone successfully. It’s a “win-win” situation.
J: In my opinion, you’ve certainly chosen the right profession to go into. You’re a natural teacher. M: Thanks very much. You are a pretty good student, too.
