"My name is Madeline (Maddie), and I am currently a sophomore at Northwestern University majoring in theatre and English (creative writing), with a minor in psychology. Originally from New York, I went to a Montessori School through the 6th grade, when I transferred to the Brearley School, an all-girls school in Manhattan. I love to act, sing, make mixed CDs for friends, play with animals, read, write, and watch good movies. I have tutored independently for the past couple years; my teaching experiences include tutoring an eight-grade boy with Asperger's in reading and math, and a 9th grade girl in essay writing and editing." ...

"I attended the University of Chicago for my undergrad degree. There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, ...

"Hi! I'm Anne, and I'm currently a graduate student studying Renaissance literature. I'm drawn to that period because it was the start of English literature as we know it--the printing press was just beginning to take off, commercial theaters were opening for the first time, and suddenly there was a huge demand for fiction. Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book. I've been tutoring high school students for the past ...

I recently finished coursework for a Master's degree Bioethics from Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL.

"I'm a recent transplant to Chicago, and I'm excited to explore the midwest! I'm heavily immersed in the sciences and stay pretty busy in a bacterial genetics lab whenever I'm not tutoring. Science is a full-time lifestyle for me, so I've had my share of exploring as well as tutoring chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and physics up to the undergraduate level. I majored in chemistry and general/statistical mathematics, and am capable of teaching up to abstraction subjects in the latter. I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years." ...
