"Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. But learning about the logical doesn't always come across as logical. 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)." ...

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

" In high school I began tutoring my peers and soon began tutoring for local non-profit organizations including The Education Center in Naperville, the Student Opportunities for After-school Resources program (S.O.A.R.) in Champaign, along with other programs. Needless to say, I have had a lot of experience working with a wide variety of students over the past 7 years, through which I have learned quite a bit about education and have developed my own personal educational philosophy. 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 ...

"I made sure I was always available to talk to younger players about issues both on and off the field. Over the course of my Junior and Senior years at Messiah I developed several great friendships and had countless conversations through which I helped younger players with the trials encountered by college student-athletes. Additionally, I have experience in a supervisory role at a mosquito control company training new employees and assisting veteran employees to improve their productivity. This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ...

"My main motivation for tutoring is seeing that "a-ha!" moment when a student finally understands a concept with which he or she has been struggling. There is nothing more satisfying! One of my greatest strengths is being able to work with all different kinds of people, and I tailor my approach to each specific case. I look forward to working with you and seeing you reach those "a-ha!" moments!."

"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. 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." ...

"At the same time I think it is important to know and incorporate a student's individual style of learning. I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy. Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them."

"I was a tutor at the Lawrence University Center for Teaching and Learning for four years, and have found my students are most successful when they have fun with their lessons. I am always exploring new ways to make tutoring sessions fun and easy to understand! I am known to bring rubberbands, corn kernels, and LOTS of scratch paper to my sessions. I am a Spanish speaker and spent six months studying in Argentina where I learned to dance tango and practiced daily yoga in Spanish and English. 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 ...
