Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT tutors in Hyde Park, IL
"Science is a full-time lifestyle for me, so I've had my share of exploring as well as tutoring chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and physics up to the undergraduate level. 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. 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." ...

I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible.

" I obtained my law degree from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to law school, I earned my bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as a medical equipment technician during my semester breaks. As a lawyer, it is not only my job to advocate my client's position, but to counsel my client. Counseling involves taking concepts that can be abstract or counter-intuitive, and making sure the client appropriately understands the concepts. My experiences working as a lawyer and equipment technician have taught me how to distill difficult ...

" I currently split my time between the city (Lakeview/Lincoln Park in Chicago) and the west suburbs (Addison, IL) When I am tutoring a student, I look to make a problem applicable to the student's experiences. 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. In my free time, I enjoy computer programming, plane spotting, reading, 3d modeling, Aviation, playing basketball and soccer, and DJ'ing. I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club." ...

"Currently, I am a medical student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine (class of 2016). As a tutor, there's no greater satisfaction than witnessing a student achieve his or her goals. To that end, I derive much enjoyment from helping my students along their way. I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to ...

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...
