Inspiration has struck me...why limit myself to teaching economically middle-class and affluent kids math, when so many students can benefit from my experience. Tutoring sounds like a great way to reach a broad and diverse set of people. Everyone needs a little extra help, but not all people can afford to get it. I understand that the greatest upward mobility -in all measures of success- is diversity. It keeps ideas fresh and questions the status quo. It is the instigator of change.
If I truly want to reach a broader spectrum of people, I should make my rates proortionately as broad to accomodate. As economic adversity is a great barrier to accessing quality support, I should definitely make myself available to meet that need.
I understand that when a person cannot get his basics needs met, he suffers a little. I want to end suffering for everyone by helping them get their needs met. There is not a single problem that cannot be solved with math...even how to interprupt the previous sentence. 😁
Logic, Computation, Problem Solving, Inquiry, and so many other skills are necessary to be a functioning memeber of society. We have to know how to think, plan, understand how to look for solutions, and question the world around us. Mathematics can help a person meet his or her own basic needs in all those ways. I want to help end suffering by teaching all people mathematics. I want to help all people make mathematical practices a fun and easy part of their daily lives.
I want to teach everyone math! I want to teach you!
