Aiso Ippudu Milele

Aiso! (Photo) My birthname is Lucas Jarrett McDonald, but I like to copyleft my code under a pseudonym: Peace Seeker. I also write as Aiso Ippudu Milele, and will likely publish many essays using that name; I like the idea of a nickname that feels less monocultural, so I created one for myself! Aiso is a combination of “love” (in Chinese or Japanese) and “only” (in Portuguese), so it means “Only Love”. Ippudu means “now” (in Telugu), and Milele means “forever” (in Swahili). In other words, I’m only love, now, forever! ;)

For the last fifteen year, I have been working in the education-industrial complex as a tutor, researcher, and even teacher. Through many years of doing my best to help people learn, I have assisted people from ages 3 to 60 in learning about a broad range of mathematical, scientific, linguistic subjects. Presently, I am working to distribute more wisdom across more people per hour. Hopefully, with luck, I may have a little bit of success in that admittedly ambitious endeavor. Check out my Twitter for some stuff I've been sharing lately!

I wrote this website from scratch (except for a few open-source JQuery libraries, which anyone can import), and earnestly began this project on my birthday in 2017. Shortly thereafter, I became a prekindergarten teacher, and this took most of my free time and energy during the 2017-2018 school year. In June, 2018, I returned to tutoring in order to give myself more time and flexibility to continue pursuing this and other personal projects, so you can expect more updates in the near future!

I hope to increasingly involve my friends, family, and cool strangers in this project! I know some awesome people who will appreciate this website as a place to blog or sell art, so check back occasionally and you might find something new!

Help Aiso!

Unfortunately, I can't keep this thing going forever without some kind of income to pay for food, shelter, and bandwidth. So if you happen to have access to plenty of resources, or you know someone who does, every donation helps.
