"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. One-on-one tutoring is an effective technique for explaining and modeling math and I enjoy seeing students attitudes toward school brighten when they see immediate progress in their work. ."

" It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding. This is especially true for the sciences, an area many people dislike, because these subjects are often difficult to understand and can be frustrating to learn."

"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 with pen and paper, or--more realistically--with a laptop and Microsoft Word.

" 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. I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club."

"I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...

" 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 necessary assistance. I believe in getting to know my students as people and discovering what style(s) of learning have the most impact, then utilizing these strategies in order to achieve success. Positive encouragement is a huge factor as well. Many students I encounter struggle with believing in themselves; often times the biggest barrier to successful learning comes from a student’s own mind telling themselves “I can’t.” I strive to offer a positive, non-judgmental ...

"I'm very familiar with US and Comparative Government due to having worked as an outliner for the AP books. Teaching is a personal endeavor and a necessary passion in my particular field. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers. On the other hand, learning science (learning anything, in fact) is best done with context in mind; if you can sufficiently teach someone, especially a layperson, the subject matter that you're studying, then you know that you got it! I've been teaching for five years not only because it's helpful ...
