what makes her an awesome tutor

When I am looking at a problem, I like to break it down into a bunch of little problems, and then decide how I’m going to approach a solution. This is the way I like to teach! Every big problem is just a bunch of little problems that you (likely) already know how to do. Once you can do that, the problem becomes a lot less scary.

fun facts
