"John Canaday wrote a book about literature and physics and taught the children of King Hussein and Queen Noor in Jordan. These days, he's a tutor with a particular skill for academic cross-training. Many students are strong in some subjects but limited in others, and Canaday helps them make connections between, say, math and reading. With word lovers, Canaday engages their interpretive skills. 'Think about math as a way of making sentences,' he suggests, 'not a bunch of numbers, but a language, with meaning.'

"'To spend time with John teaches kids how good scientists and poets read and think and observe and produce,' says Daniel Bosch, director of the Walnut Hill School's Writing Studio."
