This is how 34 referees rated Catherine:
I was a student not too long ago, and I know how the pressures of school can sometimes work against the innate curiosity that should be the driving force of the learning process. I want to help you pursue your academic goals as a student, but I also want to remind you about how fun learning new things can be. Put another way, I want to help you make room for intellectual curiosity in the broader educational context.
I'm a trained journalist, so explaining information is literally my job. I excel at taking complex concepts and translating them for a general audience, a skill that's vital for any economics tutor.
One trick I like to use for quantitative concepts is to complete a problem separately from my student and then compare notes on how we arrived at our answers. This fosters a discussion that can help make concepts like economics more approachable.
