Transform tool not scaling in relation to anchor point?

I'm having some trouble with my transform tool and I'm not quite sure why. I'm working on some homework for a basic perspective class, and we're learning how to use the transform tool to scale a character forwards or backward in space. Our instructor showed us this by moving the transform tool's anchor point over to the vanishing point in a scene and scaling the character up or down in relation to the anchor point. 

 

I move my anchor point over to the vanishing point like we were shown, but the image won't scale in relation to it and seems to instead scale independently. I've attached an image below for reference as well.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Is that your screenshot or an instructional image?

This is my screenshot. I tried to attach an instructional image for comparison but the site said it contained 'invalid html'. I'll try and post an image below here: Capture.PNG

 

This is what the homework is supposed to look like. Our instructor was able to scale characters back in space using the transform tool and I was having trouble replicating that.

Oh my gosh I wasn't! That seems to scale it correctly now! Thank you so much for the help!
