Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors in Northbrook, IL
"I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities. My success has in every case been due to my patience, my ability to adapt to student needs, and my ability to break down complex ideas into simple, digestible components. I've found that I especially enjoy helping students prepare for the ACT, but I love teaching math, physics, and the ...

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

"Since graduation, I have taught English in France, worked with adults learning English as a Second Language, and tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in a wide variety of subjects, including: math, science, reading, English, and ACT/SAT test preparation. I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves.

I also believe strongly in teaching “to ...

" I love words, but I also love using my left brain and think that math and science are incredibly fun. My teaching experience ranges from TAing English courses to teaching French and English to disadvantaged children in Senegal, West Africa. I've been told that my enthusiasm for learning is infectious. When you find a way to connect and engage with a subject, learning is fun--period! That's why it's important for me to understand my students so I can approach their lessons in the most engaging and effective ways. A little more about my academic background: I graduated from high school (a boarding school for the arts) at 16, completed AP ...

"Additionally, I have a passion for math, science, and writing, and can help with essay writing and editing. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed!

"I used to line my stuffed animals up and teach them lessons on various books or history on my white board. Fifteen years later, I get to do the real thing.

" I am staying in the Chicago area because I truly love the city and envision staying here for a long time. As far as tutoring, I have had students ranging from sophomores in high school to adults transitioning into a new career. My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success." ...
