Meet Our Tutors

Do Eun Ha:

"It is known that, when we learn or train in something, we pass through the stages of shu, ha, and ri. These stages are explained as follows. In shu, we repeat the forms and discipline ourselves so that our bodies absorb the forms that our forebears created. We remain faithful to these forms with no deviation. Next, in the stage of ha, once we have disciplined ourselves to acquire the forms and movements, we make innovations. In this process the forms may be broken and discarded. Finally, in ri, we completely depart from the forms, open the door to creative technique, and arrive in a place where we act in accordance with what our heart/mind desires, unhindered while not overstepping laws."

Chris: "One of the reasons I love writing is the feeling of limitless possibility upon first touching a pen to a fresh, blank, expectant page. I tutor because I love exploring that same possibility in other writers’ works-in-progress."


Casey: "The concept of homo faber (man the maker) describes our ability to create, not only tools, but also concepts, meanings, and even entire worlds! It seems as though humanity has always had this drive to understand things and apply meaning in ways that are sometimes totally reserved to ourselves. I tutor because I understand that difficulty in expressing these creations is one of the most frustrating experiences one can have."
