" 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. 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 ...

While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture.

In my spare time, I run religiously, listen constantly to music, and read."

"Though I've worked extensively with the ACT, I found myself teaching and tutoring subjects as diverse as Shakespearean writing and calculus to my two younger sisters and many ambitious peers who sought my assistance. During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves. It's also given me great practice in patience, listening, and adaptive approaches to problem solving." ...

"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.." ...
