Tutor description

Growing up I lived in two different homes an apartment, and a house. I don’t remember too much about the apartment I lived in, as I was only five years old when we moved out. To this day, I know where it can be found in Garfield, on a corner street above a small polish convenience store, which I still visit every once in awhile.Of thethings I do remember is how we got into the apartment through the rear entrance into the building.
