About E. Henry

School challenges are not foreign to me. I had my share of struggles during my high school experience. But at the risk of sounding cliche, if you APPLY yourself, you will persevere!

And I can help you persevere. Your contribution: only to be a willing participant.

I have a background in healthcare (anesthesia), philosophy, and law. And whatever I don't know, we can research it as a team-two heads are always better than one!

My anesthesia training included extensive delving into anatomy, physiology, chemistry, gas physics, hemodynamics of our circulatory system, and pharmacology. Should your assignment be to write an essay on how the neck bone is connected to the hip bone, we should be able to come up with a strategy for you to accomplish it.

Philosophy was the other major of mine as an undergraduate. I've recently began to re-read John Locke's "Essay Concerning Human Understanding." The work asks the question: how is it that we get to know (intellectually) what we know. The parallels between Locke's work and the academic struggles of students present exciting opportunities for new approaches relative to the tutor-student relationship.

Over a decade ago, I tutored at the Uhlich Children's Home in Chicago's northwest side. The Home was established in the 1800s to meet the needs of poor and orphaned kids of primarily German descent. When I was there, the foster home catered mainly to marginalized children of color.

Charles Hamilton Houston, the lawyer credited with the "killing" of Jim Crow said that a lawyer "Is either a social engineer or he is a parasite on society." Law was a great passion of mine until finances (among other factors) brought my legal studies to an abrupt end midway into the curriculum. But I still believe, as Houston did, that inequalities (even those related to school work) can be successfully bridged with the use of an "intensive" approach such as the one utilized in the tutor-student interaction.

Well, should we give it a go?
