His parents and teachers thought he might even be mildly retarded. When Albert was ten he began secondary school, at which he still failed to excel. He disliked the regiment of school, and the strictness of his teachers. Einstein’s hunger for learning was aroused by science books and magazines. His mother passed her passion for music on to Albert.
He did not talk until the age of three and by the age of nine, was still not fluent in his native language. (Discovering World History) His parents were actually concerned the he might be somewhat mentally retarded. His parent's concerns aside, even as a youth Einstein showed a brilliant curiosity about nature and an ability to understand difficult mathematical concepts. At the age of 12 he taught himself Euclidian Geometry. Einstein hated the dull regimental and unimaginative spirit of school in Munich.
His first formal education (besides the private education he received before school) was at a Catholic school in Munich . This institution was short-lived because of Einstein's taste and disagreements with the professor. He left the school and Ulm Germans and moved to Milan . While in Milan , Einstein wanted to continue his primary education, and in 1895 took his entrance exam to ETH in Zurich . His scores were not sufficient enough to allow him to enter the primary school, instead he went to a community school in the nearby city of Aarau .
(German-American Physicist) Still today many scientists think that he had been born in a more modern time he would have been diagnosed with all of the following mental illnesses: dyslexia, ADHD, and aspergers. (How Do We Know Einstein was ADHD) However he very quickly recovered from this because by the age of 15 one of his high Bagby 2 school teachers shockingly stated “There is nothing left to teach him.” (What did Einstein Invent?) Einstein’s education was also very much disrupted by that failures of his father’s business. In 1894 his father’s business lost a contract and failed entirely. While the rest of his family left for work, Einstein was left at a boarding school where his family expected him to finish out his education and later continue on into ... ... middle of paper ... ...an who achieved his dreams, made himself a life as both a famous physicist, and became a nobel prize winner.
Later, one of Albert’s professors reported to have not believed that he taught that same person (“Einstein, Albert” 206). When he was fifteen, his family moved to Milan because of the family business failing. They left him in Munich to finish school, but he dropped out of school because he despised it (Klein 312). So Albert went to live with his family in Milan where he spent a year (Brian 10). It was there that he decided he wanted to be a philosophy teacher, but his father convinced him to study to be an electrical engineer.
His parents worried about him because he was so slow to learn to speak. Although his family was Jewish, he attended a Catholic elementary school, where he did not excel. Due to failed business ventures, Einstein’s family moved from Germany to Italy. Einstein was supposed to stay and finish school, but he left to join his family. Einstein had actually got expelled from a school.
Childhood/Youth =============== Hitler grew up with a poor record at school and left before completing his education, with an ambition to become an artist. During his school years Hitler only showed and interest in two of his subjects which were Gymnastics and Art. After his father's death in 1903, Klara Hitler brought up the thirteen year old Adolf and Paula on her own. Between the ages of sixteen and nineteen, Hitler neither worked to earn his keep, nor properly studied, but had gained an interest in politics and history. During this time he unsuccessfully applied for admission to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts.
Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm. He was raised in Munich, where his family owned a small electrical machinery shop. Though he did not even begin to speak until he was three, he showed a great curiosity of nature and even taught himself Euclidean geometry at the age of 12. Albert despised school life, thinking it dull and boring, so when his family decided to move to Milan, Italy, Einstein took the opportunity to drop out of school, only 15 at the time. After a year with his parents in Milan it became clear to him that he would have to make his own way in the world.
The most significant ways Einstein made the world a better place were his achievements in science, pacifism, and philosophical writings. Einstein’s early years were not promising for him. When he was born on March 15th, 1879, his mother claimed his head was too big; his grandmother claimed that he was too fat, and his father stated he was mildly retarded (Severance 17). Little Albert did not talk until age four and was known to have violent temper tantrums until age seven. Eventually at age seven he entered Catholic Elementary school and he did not like it, as it was military like.
Fortunately she decided against it she felt that his unusual demeanor and appearances were signs if his level of intelligence. When he was eleven years old his parents made an attempt to feed his need for knowledge by teaching him how to use the local library resources. Despite his parents attempts they were unable to answer his many questions about the world of science specifically those questions regarding Sir Isaac Newton. Eventually his parents had to find money in order to find a tutor for him in order for him to learn the Laws of Physics which were brought to his attention by the books that he read about Newton. At the age of twelve he was for all tense a purposes “an adult” he had convinced his parents to let him go work by selling newspapers, snacks, and candies.
