Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT English tutors in Lombard, IL
"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 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 ...

" The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. My approach to tutoring is one of patience. Learning cannot be rushed, and a student who feels stressed will have a more difficult time learning. Math should be taken seriously, but should not be stressful.."

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.-Confucius As a tutor it is my goal to not only teach my students the material they need to learn, but to better their core understanding of a subject and their methods of learning for the future. This way, they can continue to learn at an advanced level long after they no longer require the service of a tutor. ."

"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."

"Additionally, I have a passion for math, science, and writing, and can help with essay writing and editing. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed! In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer or running (weather permitting). I can be found relaxing at the piano or with my flute, and look forward to learning even more musical instruments."

"If working for test prep, I would like to work with the student in his or her own test prep book (I will have the same myself) working through specific strategies for each question. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with individual college students on English essay writing, Intro Micro- and Macroeconomics, and 4th-5th grade creative writing. I am now working full-time as a tutor/behavior coach with an 8th grade English class on the south side of Chicago. My main interests are English composition and English language/literature. Additionally, I very much enjoy working with students on introductory Economics ...

" In high school I began tutoring my peers and soon began tutoring for local non-profit organizations including The Education Center in Naperville, the Student Opportunities for After-school Resources program (S.O.A.R.) in Champaign, along with other programs. Needless to say, I have had a lot of experience working with a wide variety of students over the past 7 years, through which I have learned quite a bit about education and have developed my own personal educational philosophy. 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 ...
