    No further response to my email from my workplace to Penn-Foster either.

    One of the students I am assisting was told by an instructor that if he had a problem to go to the CADTutor website for help.

    Since we are doing their job does that mean we get a cut of the fee for the course?

    The way I see it, you should be tenured for sure, I never cease to be amazed by your willingness to fill in the gaps in their curriculum and student support.

    If you are indeed who you say you are Jonde, please read through the questions that people have posted on this site about the Penn Foster-projects, perhaps there are some things you could (should) take home with you and change.

    Jon DeEsch does appear to be a real PENN FOSTER instructor, and perhaps we should cut him a little slack, as he appears to be a newbie with them, so presumably he didn't write the courses.

    If he is serious about wanting to help his students, he may yet prove to be the missing key to really helping some students. The proof is in the pudding.

    If he enjoys connecting with students maybe I should sign up for a course.

    You could probably cure him of that.

    It is only natural to enjoy connecting with some students more than others.

    Could you scan more of that page, I would like to see what the leaders are pointing to?
