"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."

"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 ...

" Prior to law school, I earned my bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as a medical equipment technician during my semester breaks. As a lawyer, it is not only my job to advocate my client's position, but to counsel my client. Counseling involves taking concepts that can be abstract or counter-intuitive, and making sure the client appropriately understands the concepts. My experiences working as a lawyer and equipment technician have taught me how to distill difficult concepts into much more understandable material. I then build on that material until the student has ...

"To that end, I derive much enjoyment from helping my students along their way. I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student and their particular learning style. For fun, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and playing any and every sport." ...

" The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. 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.."

"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 ...

"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.."

" Following my college career, I obtained a Masters degree in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University in Downers Grove. I have always been fascinated with biology and chemistry and how microscopic interactions lead to the world we see around us. I love learning about all areas of science and this passion drives my excitement for tutoring. As someone who was able to go to his dream school, I am committed to helping everyone I tutor to have the same opportunity.."

"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)." ...
