"This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ensure that the concept is being communicated. I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an organization called Cabrini Connections since September. I work with a young student from Chicago one night a week with whatever homework he might have. Through this, I am learning to connect with those who have a different background from myself. In my past teaching/training experiences I have found that mutual respect is extremely important. I believe in giving my students (or employees) the ...

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

" That's where I can help fill the void and facilitate the learning process, making what may seem like a daunting task much more manageable and conquerable. Quite frankly, the LSAT is a test that everyone could score perfectly on, given an extra five minutes per section (which no matter how hard you may wish for while taking the test will never happen, sadly enough). The key is building practical strategies that allow the test taker to efficiently manage time all while excelling in Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension. Aside from tutoring the LSAT, I am also available to teach high school standardized tests and to aid in ...

"I look to show them the parallels between things they are familiar with and the problem in question. Seeing a student's realization that they can solve a problem brings me satisfaction.

I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club."

"My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."
