Award-Winning Accounting Tutors in Lake Forest, IL
Alex ...love to assist students with ACT, SAT and GMAT test prep. One of the greatest investments you can make is in improving your college/grad school aptitude testing skills, as just a couple hours of study per week can yield enormous results in admittances and scholarships. On the weekend you might find me running with my dog, playing board games with my daughters, snowboarding, or just hanging out with a book. I love learning new languages...

Amir ...I have taught business classes at the post secondary level in the UK, and have also tutored a wide variety of subjects to students at various skill levels back here in Chicago. I truly enjoy helping students reach their goals and maintain their motivation toward success, and I believe that the best tutoring experience begins with the tutor properly determining the needs and goals of the student. I look forward to working with you!

Nicole ...Michigan- Ross School of Business. I tutor in mostly math subjects, but also tutor in essay writing/editing as well as ACT and GMAT. I have tutored athletes throughout college and also tutored in high school. My tutoring style mostly involves asking leading questions so a student can figure out the correct answer on their own with some guidance. Outside of academia, I love to cook, hang out with friends and watch sports.... I would give the student practice problems to see what topics they may be struggling with the most so that we can focus on those first.
Kevin ...experience in tutoring K-12 children in math and reading, and have personally succeeded in a large variety of standardized tests, including the ACT, the SAT, and various AP tests. I am especially passionate about teaching students optimal test-taking strategies for conquering standardized tests and honing their critical thinking skills. I believe that education is not only necessary for being successful academically and professionally, but also capable of enriching one’s life experiences. In my spare time,...

Lexington ...pride myself on my ability to differentiate my teaching style to ensure each student reaches his or her potential. I have experience working with students of all education levels, from those with special education needs to those involved in gifted programs like G.A.T.E or honors courses. I have tutored students ranging from ages 6 to adult. I look forward to working with you and your children to help them achieve their education goals!... Everything is learnable. Any student can learn anything. The idea that we are predetermined to be only good at one subject is a self-fulfilling one. When I was in 5th grade a teacher told me not to try so hard in math because I was "more of an English student." Grade 6 was the first year I did not achieve an A in math, and the subsequent hit to my confidence lead me to avoid math for many years. Then, as a math teacher, I saw this same philosophy in my students; many felt they just "weren't good at math." I don't believe this. Whatever the subject is, it is simply a matter of discipline, resilience and practice.

Kevin ...a wide variety of professionals in different environments around the world. In more recent years, I have worked as an independent consultant specializing in areas of financial reporting, internal control, and interim managerial staff-augmentation roles. I began teaching finance and management courses online in the fall of 2012 and have been doing so ever since. I particularly enjoy tutoring because I am able to help so many students become familiar with concepts that are so...
Troy ...my accounting experience outside of tax and went on to work at Hyatt Hotels in the corporate office. I was responsible for journal entries, account reconciliations, and the monthly close process. Currently, I am studying computer programming as I feel it is an invaluable skill set. Given my background, I am very comfortable tutoring in accounting, math, and economics. I received a 30 on my ACT Math portion, with a 29 on the overall exam....
Wayne I enjoy the process of showing a student how a very few math rules has so much power the enables them to solve so many different types of problems.... Helping a student demystify math by getting them to see how using logic, overcoming their fear, and relying on even a small arsenal of math laws enables them to solve many more problems than they would expect.... Getting to know the student personally. Ask the student what he/she feels about the subject. Assess his/her skill level by asking questions. Giving assurance not to be ashamed if behind, and that the gap can be made up with confidence, hard work, and focus. Bolstering self-confidence by showing a student (in math) that he/she may know more than realized by relying on common sense, logic, substitution, and recalling basic math laws.
Jack I'm a recent grad from Northwestern (B.A. in Theatre and Economics) who loves teaching and learning. I love helping other people achieve their goals and helping students find ways to be their best selves. Excited to meet and work with Chicagoland's students!... First sessions always start with discussion of a subject's foundations. If we nail these, the rest of the learning becomes ten times easier.... I'm big on listening. It's my job to hear what a client needs instead of jumping right into practice problems or revisions. First, we talk about goals. Then, we set up a timeline and steps for how to achieve those goals.
