Kathryn "... I greatly enjoy tutoring both history (and related social studies) and mathematics because I see them as two different ways of telling stories about the world in which we live. Tutoring history means building stories out of a collection of facts, a love of places, peoples, and cultures both near and far that I learned young while describing my family history - with a father from Cape Town, South Africa, and a mother from New Orleans - to others.
