Jeremy "...I know the material in every area I offer my services and can teach you such material like any other tutor. What makes me unique is my use of whatever subject I’m teaching to foster your capability to learn on your own in the future, to develop abilities that are transferable to any academic subject and even to future careers. Such abilities include: (i) Recognizing relevant issues and facts presented alongside irrelevant ones; (ii) Analyzing potential consequences of changes to complex systems in equilibrium, (iii) Distilling principles from one set of circumstances and understanding how, and when it is appropriate, to apply them to a different set; and (iv) Being able to clearly justify the basis for any conclusion made. It happens to be that those are the exact abilities I myself developed in Harvard Law School and as a lawyer..."

Rod "... With regards to learning, I believe there are 3 keys: practice, practice and more practice! In other words, my message to you is be not afraid. Any seemingly complex knowledge can be learned with sufficient understanding and review. I am here to guide you every step of the way. When I am not working or teaching, I am cooking, exercising, reading, meditating or just being with friends having a relaxing time..."
