Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors in Glencoe, IL
" Whatever is needed, be it micro (grammar or mechanics), macro (essay editing and creative writing), or test prep, I can help students of any age become better readers, writers, and test-takers. This leads to not only short-term perks like better grades and increased test comprehension, but long-term perks such as complete confidence in an increasingly digital world. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an English degree in 2008. When I'm not a teacher, I'm a copywriter, reader, sports watcher, and dog walker.." ...

"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 ...

" 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, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

"This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with reading, I try to get to know the student to learn not only the academic troubles he or she is having but also his ...

"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. What drives me? A curiosity for how people think."

"My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."

" 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.."

" My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best. In my free time, I love being with my family and friends, reading good books, dancing, and exploring the city of Chicago-my new home!."

"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."
