"I've been tutoring in some way or another for almost ten years! I started working with junior high kids in a music/academic summer camp while I was in high school. While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books."

"I think a tutor can have a significant impact on the success of any student. Everyone has their own way of learning and classes can be difficult if the teacher does not recognize an individual's personal style of learning. As a tutor, I can personally work with a student and find different ways to approach a class. Besides doing very well in my classes, I have a wide range of experience working with people in various fields."

"As a tutor, I like to begin with structured strategies for learning concepts and applying them to new tasks. If working on a school or college subject, I will incorporate the students' own classroom texts with my own additional examples or readings. 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 a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a BA in Political Science. Like most poli-sci majors, I intend to go to law school and someday practice law as a career. 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."

"I graduated from Loyola with a BBA Finance in 2010 and a BS in Physics in 2012. 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." ...
