Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors in Elmhurst, IL
"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 will share with students many tips and strategies that will not only help them save time on the test day, but also ultimately improve their scores.

"I've tutored students ranging from elementary school students (think spelling) to college students (inorganic chemistry). From my experience, I know there are many ways to getting the right answer. 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."

"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.
