I believe that everyone can learn enough about something to be proficient with it and that if you truly understand something, you can explain it in such a way that anyone can do it. Complication needn't be the case in the majority of situations.
My own specialties are many--I know a fair amount across a broad spectrum of domains. Philosophy is a personal favorite of mine, along with religion.
If you need something I haven't listed as a specialty, that doesn't necessarily mean I can't help you with it. As Richard Feynman once said "What one fool can do another can too."
Or, perhaps Willy Wonka is more fitting, "A little nonsense every now and again is relished by the wisest of men."
It is always rewarding to see others succeed as a result of interaction. It's not to say the tutor "allows the student to pass" the tutor simply brings out what is in the student that allows the student to pass.
As a writer, I'm often tasked with explaining fairly complicated subject matter in understandable ways--and as a network administrator I've often had to educate end-users. It's always a matter of finding the right way "in" to explain what needs to be explained. Nothing more.
