Moeti used to Tutor me in Statistics and this later inspired me to become a tutor during University as well. Lisa and I use to work with each other at LinkedIn in the NYC office. During COVID, I arranged a Zoom call and introduced Moeti and Lisa together. We didn't have an objective for the meeting, but I just knew they had to meet because we are all huge proponents of diversity and access to education. Shortly after, Crypto Tutors was born.
