"When sitting in a sea of students in a lecture hall, you are mostly taking in information as a passive learner. In tutoring, you quite contrastingly have an active role! By asking loads of questions or drawing graphs on the whiteboard, the tutoring sessions are commanded by not us tutors, but you! The advantages with tutoring is that you not only memorize, but make lasting connections from the course material in such a way that you would be blown away by what you are capable of."
