What sets me apart from other tutors is the fact that I emphasize Understanding, whereas most other tutors and teachers emphasize Learning.
Learning is the act of memorizing facts, dates, names, places, formulas, etc. Generally we `learn`(or memorize) something for a test or to pass a class, and the next school year or semester we forget all the material or most of it....
