How tutors help the learner causal loop
This paints a broad picture for my non-profit of how tutoring helps disadvantaged youth and, with the right jump-start from a caring individual (R1 point), how learning can get learning and skill begets further skill. I appreciate any feedback to modifications because they might shape program direction.
Future iterations will show the low skilled isolated individual gets stuck in a cycle of "no-growth." I would also like to explore the dynamics of how the learner reduces dependence on the tutor.

Seeing Believing Intent Learning
"Seeing is believing" and "Believing is seeing". How the reduction of doubt can lead to holding on to initially helpful beliefs that later turn out to be false but are difficult to change. Or as I believe Bertrand Russell might once have put it, "The trouble with the world is that fools are so sure of themselves and the wise are so uncertain."

The Lost Children
Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) proposes that cognition isn't unitary and that individuals cannot be described as having a single, quantifiable intelligence. Published in 1983, his theory stipulated seven of which one more was added a year later.
Note: Intelligence is defined as the ability to solve problems, the ability to create problems to be solved, and the ability to create a product or a service that is of value to one's culture.
