A resourceful student turned to Tinder for help studying for her midterm

A resourceful student turned to Tinder for help studying for her midtermA student struggling with math turned to Tinder for last minute help.  College sophomore Maddi McMaster has taken calculus twice, and she was at her breaking point right before her midterm. "My strongest subject is definitely English," she said over Twitter DM. "I've always been terrible at math, so God knows why I chose an engineering degree when I first came to college."  She had "procrastinated with studying," and the high school junior who usually helped her out with homework wasn't on campus that late.  Mom: “How’s school going?” pic.twitter.com/EaWfBYUTB3 — Maddi McMaster (@maddibraps) November 8, 2018 SEE ALSO: Next time someone annoys you on Tinder, rock this Halloween 'ghosted' costume "After staring at the problems for 45 minutes, I realized there was just absolutely no way I was gonna figure them out," she explained. The online tutorials weren't helping much, and none of her friends had taken calculus before, either. So she hastily jotted down a sign that said, "I NEED HELP WITH CALCULUS" and made it her Tinder profile picture. Then she added a bio:  "I didn't actually meet up with anyone," she said. "But I had people message me offering help."  When her tweet went viral and ended up on the Minnesota Barstool account, random people DM'd on Instagram with help. "I'd say I knew a solid 50 percent of the material, but it's pretty much an enigma until I actually get a score back," she stressed. "So hopefully I somehow did better than that."  On the plus side, Maddi probably won't have to take calculus ever again — she's transferring into school's liberal arts department after this semester.  "I'm taking psychology courses which of course involve science," she explained. "But to me it's a more digestible version."  She admitted that she might resort to looking for tutors on Tinder again.  "Not that I'm planning on [it] but if there's another dire situation like this I'll definitely have to consider it," she joked.
