" My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII. I recently took an intensive Princeton Review GRE class and will take the GRE this spring. Standardized tests aren't as scary as they look. It's all about pattern recognition and practice, practice, practice. I graduated from Northwestern University in March 2012 with a dual degree in Political Science and International Studies."

"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.."

"In the more immediate future, I hope to achieve a master’s degree in international relations. My studies have provided me the knowledge and skills to be a useful tutor not only in political science and international studies, but also history, English, writing, American politics and government, research, and literature. In addition, for the last nine years or so, I have studied Spanish. Since freshman year of high school, I have studied Spanish each year, building on the foundation I built in the previous year. In the fall of 2010, I was fortunate enough to study in Bilbao, Spain, where I lived with a host family and took all of my courses ...

" 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."

"I teach time management techniques and tricks in addition to the actual material on the test. I go over the types of questions that are most likely to show up on the test, and make sure that students are completely comfortable with them. I customize my tutoring plan to each student's strengths and weaknesses, and hopefully by the time we are done the student will have no weaknesses! ."

"My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own. Outside of education, I'm an amateur actor and guitarist/vocalist, and I maintain a close relationship with my alma mater's theater program. While I enjoy traveling (my passport has stamps from the UK and France, and needs more), I love Chicago, and teaching and performing help keep my head up when the White Sox inevitably break my ...
