"I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student and their particular learning style. For fun, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and playing any and every sport. I'm particularly passionate about baseball, and I've played competitively from kindergarten through high school."

" 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.."

"This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ensure that the concept is being communicated. I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an organization called Cabrini Connections since September. I work with a young student from Chicago one night a week with whatever homework he might have. Through this, I am learning to connect with those who have a different background from myself. In my past teaching/training experiences I have found that mutual respect is extremely important. I believe in giving my students (or employees) the ...

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

"During my Masters, I worked as a research assistant and trained two interns in data analysis, statistics and worked with them in completing research projects. In the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) I scored 800/800 in math which helped me secure admission to University of Texas at Austin with a tuition waiver. Prior to that, I graduated with a Bachelors in Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in Civil Engineering with a 3.6 GPA. During summer vacation in my junior and senior years I trained high school students in Mathematics for the IIT JEE (Joint Entrance Examination), one of the most competitive exams with about 5% ...

" 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). The key is building practical strategies that allow the test taker to efficiently manage time all while excelling in Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension. Aside from tutoring the LSAT, I am also available to teach high school standardized tests and to aid in ...

"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.

" My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not. In my free time, I enjoy writing music."
