Let's be clear you didn't help me but just allow to see where you get your ideas from, they're interesting. Just know I'm getting an A for this semester no matter what I have to do.

Just study those art books I gave you. I finished everything in my sketch pad by looking at them. Which means I don't have to work on anything at the last minute.

Julia and Michelle, "To Tutor or Not to Tutor"

"To Tutor or Not to Tutor" is the fifth episode of the first season of PINY Institute of New York.


Julia is so upset when she gets a spot on her forehead that her academic performance suffers, and the only person who can help is Michelle, her arch enemy.


Julia wakes up in her dorm and finds a pimple on her forehead. She screams with her friends, and she desperately tries to get something to cover it, but it doesn't work out for her. In her classes, her performance is teetering low and ends up getting Ds or Fs on her tests. That night she has a dream about getting a lot of Fs and the Indie Girls getting As.

The next day, she face calls Michelle in her locker, telling her to go see her at her locker. Julia pleads Michelle to tutor her and offer her rewards. Michelle refuses the rewards, but gives in.

Constantly trying to tutor Julia, Michelle gets frustrated because Julia keeps getting distracted. On their next test, Julia finishes hers and thinks she passed it. Though, after results, she got a D. She drags Michelle into the janitor's room and gets mad at Michelle because she never got a good grade on her test. But, she hugs Michelle and switches her design portfolio with her own.

On theory design portfolio results, Michelle gets a D and Julia gets an A because Julia switched the portfolios together. But, Michelle starts talking about a pimple miracle cream that she won't let Julia have. Julia desperately pleads Michelle to give it to her.
