" During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves. It's also given me great practice in patience, listening, and adaptive approaches to problem solving. When I'm not helping students live out their dreams, I like to run."

" In 2006 I was one of approximately 150 in the inaugural class of Chicago Teaching Fellows, a cohort of individuals who sought accelerated alternative teaching certification through a joint program between Chicago Public Schools and National Louis University. After an intensive summer workshop, I taught high school mathematics full time for two years at Chicago Discovery Academy, my courseload included Honors Algebra I and Honors Geometry, AP Calculus, Algebra I, and a formal preparation course for juniors taking the PSAE (which includes, among other components, ths ACT). I thoroughly enjoy the rewarding experiences I have had ...

"I'm very familiar with US and Comparative Government due to having worked as an outliner for the AP books. Teaching is a personal endeavor and a necessary passion in my particular field. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers. On the other hand, learning science (learning anything, in fact) is best done with context in mind; if you can sufficiently teach someone, especially a layperson, the subject matter that you're studying, then you know that you got it! I've been teaching for five years not only because it's helpful ...

"Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them. I find learning to be fun and try to pass that along to the students I tutor. Education is key to having a successful life, and I am invested in my students succeeding.."

" I truly believe that every student has the ability to achieve success and to master any subject that they set their mind to with the proper mentality and the necessary assistance. I believe in getting to know my students as people and discovering what style(s) of learning have the most impact, then utilizing these strategies in order to achieve success. Positive encouragement is a huge factor as well. Many students I encounter struggle with believing in themselves; often times the biggest barrier to successful learning comes from a student’s own mind telling themselves “I can’t.” I strive to offer a positive, non-judgmental ...

"But I think understanding and connecting ideas is more sustainable than "getting it right" one time. I think it’s important to empower students so they can become enthusiastic independent learners. What drives me? A curiosity for how people think."

"My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own. Outside of education, I'm an amateur actor and guitarist/vocalist, and I maintain a close relationship with my alma mater's theater program. While I enjoy traveling (my passport has stamps from the UK and France, and needs more), I love Chicago, and teaching and performing help keep my head up when the White Sox inevitably break my ...

"While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics.

"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 ...

"Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles. By pinpointing and addressing students’ weaknesses and creating a comfortable, nurturing environment in which they can learn, I work to help students solidify their knowledge base and learn how to learn. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing piano, baking, and learning about ...
