Having upon completed a discussion of a question which took up all her breath, my accounts tutor said:
"I would like to take this opportunity to defend myself by saying that I am not confusing. You might be confused by the question as this topic is new to you, or the question might appear to be confusing. But do not say you are confused by me because I am certainly not a confusing tutor."
Confusing you may not be, but confused, you probably are.
