You are probably frustrated with class. It’s ok. I understand that frustration intimately, and I thank you for asking for help. I wish I had learned that skill as early as you have.
The first thing to know is that I’m not here to save you. Instead, I’m here to help you learn how to save yourself. I know what true learning entails--after a difficult four years at Harvey Mudd College, I finally figured out how to teach myself anything. When we work together, this is what I will teach you. In the words of Kevin Kelly via the Waking Up podcast: "That's what we want to aim for is that every person on the planet today will learn how to learn and will optimize how they learn best, and that is what schools should be aiming for."
The second thing to know is that we will not be doing your homework together. Can you ask me questions about it? Absolutely--I should hope so. It is the formulation of questions that is the most powerful of the self-teaching skills I want you to master. But what this means is that you will do your homework to the best of your ability before your tutor walks in the door. I’ll be reviewing the homework, too, so I’ll need you to forward it to me as it’s assigned. Our lessons go well when we are prepared.
There’s more, of course. That’s what the consultation is for.
Can’t wait to hear from you,
HobbiesI love to meditate, play volleyball, read, do yoga, raise baby kittens, jog, and do grant research for my favorite nonprofit.
