"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. I'm particularly passionate about baseball, and I've played competitively from kindergarten through high school."

"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 find learning to be fun and try to pass that along to the students I tutor. Education is key to having a successful life, and I am invested in my students succeeding.."

"Most recently, I tutored two brothers, in the 4th and 5th grade respectively, in math. I also volunteer weekly as a mentor to a 4th grade girl at the Evanston YMCA, and have extensive babysitting experience. My experiences tutoring students of various ages, needs, and levels of ability have impressed upon me the importance of tailoring teaching methods to the particular student. I firmly believe in working with the student to figure out the best strategies for him or her."

" It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding. This is especially true for the sciences, an area many people dislike, because these subjects are often difficult to understand and can be frustrating to learn."

"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."

"I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in the Chicago area, but I was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluenty. I also speak Spanish--I learned it in school and still use it to this day with my husband's family. Outside of work, I am married with a 2-year-old son."

"This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ensure that the concept is being communicated. I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an organization called Cabrini Connections since September. I work with a young student from Chicago one night a week with whatever homework he might have. Through this, I am learning to connect with those who have a different background from myself.

" 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. When I'm not helping students live out their dreams, I like to run."
