"I get excited about tutoring. In the last two years I've tutored everyone from middle school students to adults, on topics ranging from the intuitions of basic arithmetic to how to connect with and describe an author's voice. Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors."
