Perhaps I like tutoring because I have so much experience as a student myself. And because I too have felt frustration with certain topics that don't come easily, I can relate to others wishing to improve in specific areas. Statistics is one area that seems to worry many students, but I've often found that the underlying conceptual framework is the trickiest part. Once you 'get it', though, the rest falls into place with much less difficulty. Helping others get to that point is really rewarding, and the feeling of accomplishment is always shared. When I'm not tutoring or working on my degree in psychology, I might be doing a home renovation project (or planning the next one), out on my bicycle, or practicing martial arts.
