Dylan – Pure Math
I was born on the island of Maui, and moved to Oahu for college. In my free time, I practice guitar, particularly music by Chet Atkins. I'm familiar with algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, and beyond. I think everyone wants to be good at math, but it can just be a difficult subject to approach; with work, anyone can understand and appreciate it.

 

ERI – TESOL
I am from Japan. I am a Writing Mentor and a Japanese tutor. Since learning and teaching had been my passion for years, I decided to go back to school. I had been tutoring in my own way, so the teaching pedagogy of TESOL has been eye-opening for me. I will be happy if students learn something new from me.

I’m a Writing Mentor, getting my BA in English with a Writing minor. I’m from a small town in Utah, so Oahu has been quite an experience for me.

Since I’ve always been passionate about writing, I’d love to help others appreciate it as much as I do.
