"I am a philosophy of religions M.A. student at the University of Chicago, and I've been living in the Chicago area for about five years. I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities."

"Hi! As an undergraduate student I studied psychology and health at Illinois Wesleyan University. I then continued on to Syracuse University where I completed my Master's in international relations. I am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context.

I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team." ...

"My main motivation for tutoring is seeing that "a-ha!" moment when a student finally understands a concept with which he or she has been struggling. There is nothing more satisfying!

"I'm a recent transplant to Chicago, and I'm excited to explore the midwest! I'm heavily immersed in the sciences and stay pretty busy in a bacterial genetics lab whenever I'm not tutoring.

I majored in chemistry and general/statistical mathematics, and am capable of teaching up to abstraction subjects in the latter. I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years." ...
