"I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...

"I went to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, which is a residential high school for gifted students. In order to attend one must take the SAT and apply to the school. There I gained a strong background in math and science, but also the humanities, while not thought of due to the name of the school, were also very strong. I am a very good standardized test taker, and know all of the tricks and tips that you need to get ahead. I am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school. I am very easy going and sociable." ...

"Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. But learning about the logical doesn't always come across as logical. 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)." ...

"Since graduation, I have taught English in France, worked with adults learning English as a Second Language, and tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in a wide variety of subjects, including: math, science, reading, English, and ACT/SAT test preparation. I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves.
