I'm sorry if this seems a little bit incoherent, but it frustrates me so much. This whole situation started at the beginning of this semester when I saw a guy I knew from my discrete math class, I didn't think much of the fact that he was so friendly at first, but apparently he had plans. Then he started wanting to study with me, now normally this wouldn't bother me, I like helping people with math if they really want to learn with me, but this guy is focused on productivity: he wanted me to do half the problems and him to do the other half so we could meet up later and combine them into a whole. This got me in a little bit of a huff, as quite frankly, all I care about is whether I truly understand the concepts, thus I do all my homework. Also, our Professor trusts that we do our homework, thus he never collects it, however this guy has an obsession with handing it in, so he always wants me to help him correct it. Now a good month into my linear algebra, we have our first test coming up and this guy wants me to study with him, I am absolutely going to say no, but I don't know how to as I am shy and non-confrontational, thus my current strategy has been not answering phone calls. I can't stand how this guy operates, he's stuck in high-school where he was teachers pet, and now he wants me to help him become professors pet! Auggghhhh I feel so used! Does anybody have any tips on how to break this up without a great deal of drama? Sorry for the venting, If anyone else wishes to vent, I will listen.
