"As nothing is more easy than to think, so nothing is more difficult than to think well."
~ Thomas Traherne

During my semester at Oxford University, we were required to phrase our essays not as declarative statements, but as tentative answers to a question we posed. Our tutorials were times spent in one-on-one dialogue with a professor discussing the result. After graduation, when I worked as a professional tutor, I told my students I was more concerned with teaching them how to think rather than what to think. Content is important, but creative, critical thinking empowers students to gather and make sense of content on their own. I have always taught with the ultimate purpose of empowering students to achieve their goals independently. Like any good counselor, a good tutor works themselves "out of the job" by teaching students to teach themselves.

"Those who mold the human mind have wrought not for time, but for eternity."
~ Calvin Coolidge

Teachers and professors have profoundly shaped who I am today. I am forever indebted to their efforts, character, and charity for opening my mind and sharing their riches of knowledge and wisdom. I can only hope to do the same for others.
