My primary profession was "Elementary School Teacher" . In our profession ,
determiner factor is not intelligence ( because everyone virtually has
sufficient amount of it )
but "work with respect to scientific principles , continuous efforts ,
knowledge of the subject" . Please do not blame yourself with respect to
Later on I went to the Middle East Technical University ( Ankara , Turkey )
to be a
( Mathematician , Computer Expert , a Good Manager of Money ( I have never
to earn sufficient money to manage other than my monthly salaries )) , and
instructor in another University ( Hacettepe ) . Always my emphasized point
students and nearly every other one around me was the principle :
"Not intelligence , but sufficient study and work" .
My opinion is that you also need sufficient study and work , not
it is easily understandable that you have plenty of it .
You may see the following page and its associated subpages leading you to
"Computer Graphics" books if you think you need to review or learn subjects
And also useful ( more ) pages ...
This means that your problem is not so easy to handle as seen from a
distant point .
With my best wishes for all ,
