Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT English tutors in Glencoe, IL
"I was a tutor at the Lawrence University Center for Teaching and Learning for four years, and have found my students are most successful when they have fun with their lessons. I am always exploring new ways to make tutoring sessions fun and easy to understand! I am known to bring rubberbands, corn kernels, and LOTS of scratch paper to my sessions. I am a Spanish speaker and spent six months studying in Argentina where I learned to dance tango and practiced daily yoga in Spanish and English. I recently traveled to China for a college course studying sustainable water management strategies. I love to travel! I also love to write and tend to excel ...

"I have tutored for many years and I have found that students may learn in different ways and all can excel at math. I like to present material in an engaging and relevant manner so that we can all learn and achieve success. One-on-one tutoring is an effective technique for explaining and modeling math and I enjoy seeing students attitudes toward school brighten when they see immediate progress in their work. ."

" Following my college career, I obtained a Masters degree in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University in Downers Grove.

"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.

I also believe strongly in teaching “to ...

"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)." ...

"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.." ...

"This is my 5th year teaching in the South Chicagoland area. I chose a career in teaching because I have always had a knack for helping people understand difficult concepts.
